COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gose is an ancient German sour wheat beer that is brewed with coriander and salt. We get the sour characteristic from a partial sour mash rather then using the Pedio in the secondary. In the Dunkel version we bumped up the malt profile and added some caramel malts to give some color and a little malt sweetness. To compared it to any other beer is hard because I only know of one Dunkel Gose being brewed in the world (if you know of any others let me know), Goslarer Dunkel Gose brewed in Goslar Germany. Compared to that beer, ours is a little darker and a bit higher in alcohol (5.5% vs. 4.9%). Leave it to an American to take a traditional European beer style and bump up the body and alcohol.

Pours a foggy caramel brown color with a trace of eggshell foam. The nose is round sweet caramel with traces of tart lemon. On the palate its a lot of the same with a round malty dough character taking the lead... rich caramel and touches of toffee.. traces of tart lemon peak through on the front and back end of the beer but Im not sure they are coming together in the best way.. Id like to see a little hop character coming into the mix... not bad, I love Gose just didn’t love this variation of it.

Bottle... Pours hazy and dirty-orange with no head. The bouquet is malty, toasty and lightly funky. Medium-bodied with vibrant carbonation. The flavor is malty and toasty with a tiny pinch of salt. Crisp, mildly salty finish. Nice stuff. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Pours deep gold into a snifter. Pancake head with medium retention recedes leaving thin trailing sheets. Mild bubblegum and coriander aromas. Thin with salty caramel upfront turning to banana before the dry medium length saltwater finish.

On tap at the source. Served in a pilsner glass. Pours a hazy tan color with a 1/2" off white head. Semi sweet wheat and banana aroma, very much like a dunkelweizen. Wheat, banana, and spice in the flavor. Lacks the sourness I was hoping for. Moderate palate & easy to drink. I had two. All in all, a good tasting beer, just not what I expected.

The pour comes out as a muddy orange brown with a small white head that quickly reduced to a veneer. Actually quite interesting looking. It’s quite hard to put a finger on the characteristics of this beer- caramel and toffee round out the malt character with some lemon like lactic acidity providing a bit of a tart bite. More caramel toffee comes through in the flavor with a crazy doughy berliner weiss like sourness that holds lemon acidity. The palate is medium bodied with supple fine bodied carbonation, finishing with a clean acidic finish.
