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

Bottle to snifter. Pour is orange colored with a white head. Aromas were of lemon zest, spices, coriander, some light hop aromas. I also got a good amount of ripe citrus fruits from the taste with bitter pith mixed in. Some grainy malt and spices also played a part in making this brew up. Cherry notes. Not bad at all. Interesting.

Appearance - Bronze, soapy head
Aroma - Yeast, clove, basil, bread

This was a nice and light brew with a really nice mellow fruit flavor. Light flavors of spices and bread make for a very session-able brew.

From batch no. 1, called Verloren Gose. Interesting floral and yeast aroma, with some brett. Dark gold pour. The bready taste is close to a wit or Belgian golden ale. Coriander, a little pepper and ginger. It is brewed with wheat and salt, but doesn’t taste salty. It is pretty dry and summery. Another interesting release from Samuel Adams.

had a sample at this at craft fest but then bought a bottle of batch #1 to do a rating. The color of this beer is the same orange and yellow of the label with barley a finger head and lots of visible carbonation. The aroma is sweet and hits you with that coriander and malt. This a a very sweet wheat beer but still oddly light. Normally i think of this level of sweetness with more high abv beers. The taste is sweet almost caramel and finishes with some sea water. Odd but cool to discover a new style.

Aroma- sea salt, seaweed, fruity esters, funk, wet hay Appearance- funky yellow with sediment and haze Taste- initially very salty with a mild sweetness, flat thereafter Palate- medium-body, feels nice in the mouth Overall- First half of the bottle was pretty good. Second half was cloyingly salty and sweet. Unique but a one-off for me.

Bottle. Light sour malt aroma with a hint of lemon and salt. Hazy golden yellow color with giant off-white head. Slightly sweet wheat malt and lemon peel flavor with a hint of salt in the finish. Light body. Decent - pretty light though.

Strykzone (5626) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear gold with an orange gold head. This is like a soft saison. It is thin. Nothing offensive here but not really a gose.

Pailhead (5748) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of wheat, bread, lemon grass, grass, and a touch of citrus. It pours a a slightly hazy dull burnt-orange with a three finger off-white head with good retention. The flavor starts some sweet caramel and lightly fruity flavors. There is some breadiness in the background. The finish some light grass, faint citrus, and a touch of pepper. I want to say there’s just the slightest hint of salt, but they may be the "power of suggestion" leading me to believe it’s there. It’s light-medium bodied mild carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. Overall, it’s an okay drinker, but I liked the Leipziger Gose better.
