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.

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.

Dogbrick (8023) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Orange-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, yeast and slight spice. Light-bodied with flavors of tart citrus, bready malt and yeast. Subtle saltiness in the background. The finish is fruity with a short citrus aftertaste. Barely average overall.

16oz. can from Zipp’s Liquors. Light citrusy nose, some spice. Medium dark straw/orange color. Light sweet fruit juice, with some citrus zest, chicken stock, bready, and very tiny coriander. Thin body. Not much tartness. Kind of a half-hearted take on the style. No real spice/salt tang.

Can shared by Scott. Pours a clear orange golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale, grainy, wheat malts, some bready character, corn, light citrus, salt, light spice. Just so so.

DrSilverworm (6321) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2014
16oz can, thanks to Scott L. for sharing! Totally clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Dots of lace. Coriander, bready wheat aroma in the nose. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lightly crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Kind of zesty taste, moderate sweet, light bitter. Nice lemon notes in the aroma, light spice. Alright gose, it’s solid.

theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 20, 2014
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at France 44 in Minneapolis. 072514 printed on the bottle neck. The pour is crystal clear yellow golden with a well formed 1 ½ inch head that is quite lasting. The aroma is semi-sweet cereal grain malt along with a hint of the spice and salt. The taste is the cereal grain malt, slightly sweet, hint of lemon citrus, slightly dirty, muddled floral coriander and finishing with some of the salt. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft carbonation and a lingering malt sweet, floral and salt after taste. Just OK.

HonkeyBra (3358) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Clear golden orange color with a medium white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander, light bready notes. Flavor is mild citrus, medium coriander, and mostly sweet bready notes. Maybe a twinge of saltiness. Medium bodied. Finishes on the sweet side. This is kind of flabby, to be honest. Wish it were less sweet.

Hazed pale straw yellow with a quickly fading white crown. Aroma is faint and bready with wood and coriander. Taste is salty and bready with coriander, faint wild notes and finishes semi-sweet. Only my 4th beer in the Grodziskie/Gose/Lichtenhainer trio and not in any hurry to try number five.

harrymel (1500) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Best by 15SEP13 Light gold with a solid cap of dense white foam. Smells of coriander, salt, lemon pith, some grain and a little banana and clove. Flavor is nice and floral from the start, some gardenia, sweet honeydew and sweet pear. Some grain and banana. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a wet finish. Nice beer, not quite the gose I’m used to, but nice.
