COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is a traditional, German-style Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), using over 20 pounds of coriander spice in each brew. It has a bright lemon zest, coriander aroma and a slight saltiness that rounds out this new summer brew. The beer pours clear, golden orange in color, with a thick white foam head. A refreshingly light and citrusy tartness greets your palate, backed by a bready, wheat malt character.

Clear rich gold with a frothy head,light lacing. Aroma of citrus-/orange maybe,corriander.Some mineral.Pretty refreshing smelling. Taste is smooth,tangy,with some sharp citrus orange-spice-crisp bite to it. Has some foamy body to it but still drinks light crisp,some spice brisk finish.Crisp,not much salt,maybe a soft mineralness to it. Not really what I would call a great session beer but its ok.Not familar with the style yet either,first gose beer for me I think.

Pours a golden color with minimal head, aroma of a bit of lemon and earthiness. Taste is similar but very light in body.

Aroma is very light citrus, minerals and a hint of salt. The flavor is citrus, malts, a definite salty quality and a mildly sour finish. Don’t particularly care for gose, this was okay.

First of the Gose style for me. Clear golden yellow color with fluffy white head. Aroma smells like a basement. Light slick fizzy palate. Lemon and coriander on the taste.

Poured from a bottle. Very light, golden, transparent, with a slight head. Aroma is also very slight, a faint meadowy ’Grain Belt’ aroma, not enough to detect any other undertones. Likewise the taste has the a bit of the same meadowy Grain Belt when it first hits the taste buds, but the difference is then immediately revealed with a lemony yet slightly salty finish. So I do get the coriander and saltiness mentioned in the description, but it is not heavy, nor does it linger long. I am not qualified to say whether this is a faithful rendition of a Gose. Often, in cases like this it is a balancing act to create a mass producible facsimile of a beer style that remains reasonably true to traditional recipes and methods. How successful Schell’s was at accomplishing this, I will leave for others to judge. I can say it is a pleasant beer. A good summer offering that I suspect will find its way to my patio often.

Draft at Grumpy’s NE. Faint grassy aroma. Lagerish.faintly hazy gold with a thin lasting white layer of head. Honey is the prevailing initial mouthfeel. Lightly carbonated. May be first pour of the day. Not bad. A little bready in the finish. I get the lemon zest too.
