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

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2013
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of thgr81_us. Pours a cloudy golden with a white head leaving a discreet lacework. Interesting perfumy aroma. Medium body, rather sweet fruitiness, a little honeyish and again perfumy. Interesting and enjoyable - but a Gose? More a Belgian Wit. No real saltiness for sure. 150313

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!

Leighton (14006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC - Clerkenwell, London. Many thanks to Jack for bringing this along. Pours cloudy gold with soft, white head. Lots of sweet dough here, some orange. Medium sweet flavor with more orangey citrus, doughy bread, straight sugars. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with yet more orange and dough, along with notes of pineapple. Pleasant if quite simple.
