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

degbert (1344) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a high, pillowy, white head. The nose is citrus and herbal, with an acetic undertone. Rich on the tongue -- the salt is almost an echo rather than a flavor, and I can sense the peppery bite of spice. The beer foundation to those notes is a solid wheat ale with just a bit of sour and sweet. Just different enough to be eye-opening, and very good.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has an earthy grain note with backing sweetness and light fruit that has a hint of tartness. Flavor is similar with sweet grains throughout and a hint of light tart in the finish.

annunz123 (922) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Malt, grassy hops, citrus, and some iced tea in the aroma. Flavor is malty with some lemony ctirus. Some hop bitterness and spice in the finish for balance. All in all a really nice effort.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2012

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JUN 17, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a small white head that recedes to a film. The aroma is bready with a bit of peppery spices. The flavor is subtle with biscuit malts, mild pepper, and a hint of sour grapes. The palate was just a bit thin and watery and the carbonation was weak. Finishes short and unsatisfying. Overall: Might make a good lawnmower beer, as it is--meh

jimmie65 (330) - Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Pours a cloudy orange with no head. Light lemon, some spice in the aroma. Sweet, slight sour, saltiness I’m not used to (but balanced). Tastes of wheat, spice, lemon. Finished with coriander and then some saltiness, like sea salt. Very pleasant, easy to drink. Definitely different but I like it.

The aroma is citrusy and inviting with spice and yeasty bread as well as hops. The appearance is copper with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a really nice drink.

Pour out of 500 mL bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of herbs, spice, salt notes, hints of biscuit, bread, yeast, some more salty notes. Interesting. Taste is sweet fruit, caramel, hints of fruity yeast, salty notes with a touch of grass and earth, very sweet honey and vanilla, touch of coconut, finishing sweet. Interesting but odd for the style.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lace. S - Aroma is a mix of sour and tart barnyard funk with some wheat, pepper, salt, and a touch of citrus and floral smells. T - Starts off with a mix of tart and funky flavors with some light fruit, wheat, coriander, and a touch of salt. Through the middle, some light sourness starts to come through with some floral flavors and a bit of lemon zest. The finish is a mix of wheat with some barnyard funk, tart light fruit, lemon, and a bit of bready malt. M - Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and tart finish. D - Very drinkable. Interesting take on the style, a but a bit mild and watery.
