COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

czar (4280) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
batch 1 - maybe a tad old then. shared by VT, thanks dawg. pours hazy golden with a small white cap showing some retention and shy lacing. coriander-plenty, almost perfumey, plain and slightly sweet-ish caramel, honey, hint of salt, grass, hint of acidity - a non-rustic saison could easily be more acidic. average carbonation, light body, slightly boozy - why 6%, almost bland peppery-herbal-grassy finish. weak gose. DP.

Bottle at the lake house. Pours a hazed amber gold with a medium to large creamy white head. Smells a bit floral, with loads of coriander. Medium bodied, light salinity, coriander, wheat, light lemony sweetness. Finishes with some faint musk, some more salinity, but faint. Pretty easy drinking.
