COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams continues to expand their Small Batch Series in 2012. On the schedule is Verloren, and gose. There aren’t a lot of U.S. brewers making a gose, especially a brewery as large as Boston Beer. That’s probably why they dubbed it “Verloren” or “lost” beer . (It’s Dutch.) The style originated in Goselar, Germany in the 18th century. Gose became very popular the adjacent city of Leipzig, Germany due to a lot of local breweries brewing the style. Gose all but died out during WWII due to brewery closings. Expect this beer to have a touch of sourness, with notes of lemon & salt. A link to the ales of Saxony that had all but vanished, Gose is a peculiar yet captivating brew. With a base of an unfiltered wheat ale, it’s vivid and refreshing yet also has a softness to it. The flavor is brought to life by an unexpected touch of salt for a mineral quality, and coriander for a peppery spice. The result is an unusual and delicate brew that’s full of flavors to discover. Batch #1

jbruner (1997) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Pours a clear yellow gold from the bottle with thin white head and no lacing. Aroma of soury sweet fruits and corn malts. Taste is like a sour pale lager, no real salt like a normal gose. Meh.

22oz bomber poured into a weizen glass. Pours a hazy dark orange with a one finger white head. Not much in the way of head retention and lacing. Aroma of citrus and coriander. Pineapple is quite predominant. The flavor starts out with citrus along with a peppery spicyness and a distinctive iced tea flavor. The lemony tastes helps this stand out. A little bit of yeast flavor reminiscent of a hefe along with a touch of salt. The saltiness is very light but it is there. Mouthfeel is fairly full with a sticky finish. Overall, this is just an ok beer. It is the only Gose I have sampled so I don’t have much to compare it to, but I was expecting more salt and more tartness. It really seem like a lower quality wheat beer.

maxwelldeux (3084) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2012
This one smells just a little too sweet for me. Pours an amber color with a thick head. Just a little sourness in this, like from citrus.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours a murky orange-brown with a soapy off-white head. Scent is salted, acidic, fruits...almost a yellow tomato aroma and flavour. Not sour at all.....the salt sees to that....slight wheaty-ness as it warms. Fairly good flavour, a little weak, but still, a nice different beer. I found myself liking it more as it went along.
