Samuel Adams continues to expand their Small Batch Series in 2012. On the schedule is Verloren, and gose. There arenít a lot of U.S. brewers making a gose, especially a brewery as large as Boston Beer. Thatís probably why they dubbed it ďVerlorenĒ or ďlostĒ beer . (Itís 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, itís 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 thatís full of flavors to discover. Batch #1

Sampled on 6/9/2012. This gose pours a slightly hazy orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of salt and some orange. A medium bodied gose. The malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of orange and orange peel. The hops are earthy. Decent balance. Nice carbonation. A touch salty and zesty, but mostly fruity and sweet. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Aroma: Lots of earthy yeast aromas, with hints of cooked vegetables. Appearance: Cloudy dark gold with a thin white head. Taste: Immediate medium sourness which is quickly balanced by a light sweetness and finishes with a hint of saltiness. Palate: Light-medium body, thin milky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: I am very intrigued and caught off guard by this beer. There is a great complexity in the flavor that really works well, and no one taste is too overpowering.

Iím sure Iíve never had a gose before but mostly this tasted like a pretty good amber ale to my wife and I. Perhaps a bit salty and malty, it was easy enough drinking at the pool on a hot las Vegas day.

Clear amber color, fine carbonation, delicate white head. Aromas are bready, yeasty, with slight fruit and pine notes, Flavor is delicate, balanced, with a lingering bitter finish. Itís cool that the folks at Samuel Adams did a Gose.

I admire the heck out of the fact that SA produced a Gose. My first, so I canít rate to style. Cloudy orange, good persistent head. Faint aroma of citrus (thatís the coriander). Itís not a powerhouse of flavor, but slightly tart, refreshing, and kind of salty in the backend. An interesting beer and a pretty good one.

Bomber bottle from Giant Eagle in Sewickley. Batch 1 according to the back label. Dryness and a prevailing sourness dominate this small batch series. No wonder this style died out years ago. The effort to resurrect the recipe by Sam Adams should be appreciated regardless of the outcome.

22 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Hazy yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of fresh cut lemons, wet grass, and light caramel. The flavor is somewhere between Belgian Wit and Berliner Weisse with noticeable wheat and coriander but at the same time a touch of sourness yet nothing quite as tart even as a Berliner Weisse. As far as I can recollect I have never had anything that quite fits into this style so I can only assume that Samuel Adams had does this style justice. By any estimation this is a unique and enjoyable beer.
