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. Batch #1

From bottle. Batch #1. Big coriander nose. Spicy with light wheat and carbonic notes. Very aromatic herbal and ripe - enjoyable. Dark amber clear with hug, off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with light carbonation. Starts wheat, light caramel and mild bitterness. Mild tang and salty character, but weak with some light oxidation flavors.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a fairly transparent gold with foamy eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells yeasty with mild notes of lemon and salt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A little bland for the style, but not bad.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold body under a one finger frothy off-white head that left some heavy lacing. The nose is slightly briney with some pale malt sweetness. The flavor is not quite as intense on the saltiness as many of the other beers of this style that Iíve had. Slightly sweet up front with some bready malt and a slight citrusy note. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty interesting, but not quite as vibrant as most other efforts Iíve had.

So this is weird. Aromas of bread, salt,cardboard, some unidentifiable ingredients... Maybe coriander. Salty flavors, bready.. Some herbal notes. Not sure I can finish the whole bottle. Not bad.. Just weird.

Lemon and tartness on the nose. Citrus and a bit of wheat on the palate initially, finishing tart. Not much in the way of spice even though that is what the description says.

On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Golden orange color. I believe the keg was being kept too cold which killed a lot of the flavor. The spiciness is nice and overall refreshing. The style is difficult and almost bland by design. Sam does a good job of respecting the style and making it just interesting enough.

NikkTwist (1538) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
Draft at Moriartys. Very hazy orange pour with a frothy off-white head. The saltiness jumped out at me before I knew to look for it. Lots of expected wheat beer notes but it is the odder ones that distinguish it. A lot of hard minerals. Some funky citrus happening here as well. Unusual, but cannot help thinking that someone poured a Margerita in my beer.

Murky light orange pour with a light beige head. Aroma is spice. Taste is wheat, little peppery in the finish. Didnít get much salt. Heavier finish than the only other gose I have tasted. Tasty none-the-less. Nice lacing.

I donít get much from the aroma, a slight wheat malt nose with a little spiciness. Pours golden orange with a small head that is gone quick. Nice flavor, kind of sweet and sour with a mineral accent. Fruity and spicy, very crisp and refreshing. Light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and clean, somewhat sour finish. This is the first gose that Iíve had, would like to explore other brands. I like it as well as witbier, it is similar to that style.
