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

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle:   Hazy amber, moderate to large frothy of-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Soft sweaty nose, a bit wheaty and mealy.   Pale fruity wheatiness up front, a little tart, some pink peppercorn like flavors.   Very interesting.   Needs a bit more umph, seems to start of nice but it falls off quickly.   Tiz clean.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   As it warms I get a bit of that corriander.   Sort of a pale wheaty beer with non-traditional spices.   Not bad, certainly different.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours an average cheddar orange with a nose of tangy dark fruit and bread. Flavor is a fluffy biscuit with stale fruit and stagnant water. Oily onm the tongue. Yes, this is supposed to be a reproduction of an old style but c’mon. Up the ante a bit.

Sledutah (5216) - Utah, USA - AUG 7, 2012
20oz bottle from bevmo
Pours clear straw yellow with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly leaving some light lacing. Aroma of berries, honey and sweet caramel. Taste of berries, lemon, bready and herbal. A lot going on that just didn’t mesh.

ChainGangGuy (4430) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2012
22 ounce bottle - $5.98 at Sherlock’s in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clouded, dark amber-gold body with a short-lived, whitish head.

Smell: Sweetish, spicy, from the honey and caramel coated wheat and cereal grains and the coriander and continental hops.

Taste: Honey atop malted wheat with an added edge of sweet caramel squares. Pinch of ground salt. Then, a bit of spiciness from the German hops, followed by a nice bite from the coriander. Muddled citrus character. Small fruity hints of tart pear and yellow apples. Also some light banana. Remains malty through to the end with final pops of salt, spice, and sweetness on the soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Smooth wheat character.

Overall: Tasty, with a cheerful approachability as all the flavors plan very nicely with each other.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2012
The beer pours an orange-amber color with a large white head. The aroma has a lot of wheat and lemons in it, as well as some salt. The flavor has some toffee and biscuit malt. There is also a bit of saltiness and some very light tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I haven’t had a lot of goses, but this one was as good or better than the other ones I have tried.

onceblind (4703) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Tap at Denver Summer Brew Fest 2012. Clear dark gold, with a funny aroma that’s hard to explain. Fresh nose of wildflowers, wheat, honey, pear, coriander...neat and different. Pleasant taste with a peppery fruitiness and some light saltiness (in a good way), light pear and honey flavors as well

thomas15 (689) - USA - AUG 3, 2012
Barely an aroma of salty pool malt. Weird and slight. Golden red, good lacing. Slight head good lacing. Salty tart sweetness. Aggressive on palate with carbon and salt and neutrality. Some white flavor.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Slightly hazy orange-brown body, medium off-white head. Soapy nose with berries and dust. Soapy, herbal body with notes of potpourri. Tame and lifeless.

jbruner (2560) - 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.
