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.

Hazy gold beer with a fluffy white head. Light palate, airy and crispy. Light lactose sweetness well integrated with a little fresh orange and nice generic fruitiness. Can’t really taste any salt except perhaps a little in the aftertaste, keeping the sweetness in check. Interesting beer! Good stuff!

Bottle. Light hazy amber liquid with small white head. Aroma of coriander, bread, salt, light pepper and light lemon. Taste is dry to light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, caramel, light salt and light coriander. Too sweet and not sour at all. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Meh.

jcos (1442) - Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle on September 18th, 2013 split with J.

Appearance: Pours a caramel cloud.
Aroma: Very faint aroma.
Taste: Light wheat, lemon, light salt.
Palate:Medium light body.

Summary: Not the first gose I’ve had, this one was solid yet missing something in the nearly non-existant nose. I don’t know if what I had was old - it was a small batch 4 pack from a store with lots of inventory. Just okay.

22oz bottle. Pours a dark, clear honey color. Aroma of caramel, crackers, grain. Flavor of caramel, grain, saltines. Has somewhat of a cross between "sugar daddy" (candy), but less sweet and a saltine cracker, but less salty. My first Gose, but I find it to be quite pleasant.

Aroma is nice with spices, corriander and oyster crackers. Pours hazy and brown with a nice heavy head. Taste is pleasant with a coriander opening, biscuit middle and just a hint of peach at the end. Very pleasant. I will gladly drink this all night and then again.
