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.

Pours gold and slightly hazy with a white head. Smells minerally with some lemony hints, grassy splashes and some wheaty undertones. Tastes minerally and dry with some wheat elements on the finish. A good attempt at the style, but not a gose.

Wow. Coriander comes thru the dryness. Dry feel but still sweet. Citrusy. Right at the last second you get a saltiness. Like this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow, a saaz balance with a light salty mineral mouth feel. Smells of a wheat beer. Itís mineral balance of taste is unique. Worth a try for a bottle. Wished there were more to compare it to.

Well thatís a bummer, but Iím sure heíll come out at some point. He got himself in there, Iím sure heíll get himself out. Or he wonít, and heíll die in there and youíll have a dead cat smell for a while but listen, Iím going to help you out of that jam: weíll open the windows and get some scented candles going, maybe get a big fan going in here, maybe heíll decompose and everything will be fine. Boom! Thatís what itís like to have a sidekick. Helped you out of a jam.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Im I taking crazy pills? This isnít even tart! Poured out of bottle. Pours hazy gold with white head. Aroma of grain, with just very faint hints of citrus. Flavor is much the same with some rustic notes and hints of salt, which are kinda interesting. Mouthfeel is light-medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, absolutely nothing interesting is taking place in this brew, should not be called a Gose.

wlajwl (3807) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2012
The aroma is cinnamon/spices and mildly complex malts. The flavor is lemons, a strong note of saltiness, spices and a malty backbone. Kind of reminiscent of a Witbier with a strong saltiness.

Butters (3746) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Pours a clear golden pour with good white head. The clean light and floral aroma. Tastes somewhat like a blend of a saison and lilacs and hints of citrus and a Belgian golden ale. It does have a slightly sea salt finish. Interesting, but i donít think I care for this style too much.

A slightly haze light copper colored brew. Low head but decent carbonation. Wheaty-citrus aromas. Flavor comes on like a typical Hefeweizen or Belgian Wit at first, but with more lemony notes and some herbalness. Interesting saltiness hits right in the middle. Finish is crisp and lightly sweet with a tad amount of bitterness. Thanks SA for opening my horizons to something new!
