Salt of the Earth is our play on a gose. Not to be confused with a gueze, the gose style originated in Leipzig, Germany. It is a wheat beer traditionally brewed with salt and coriander as well as lactic bacteria. Clearly not following the Reinheitsgebot, we figured we’d knock it up a level by using an addition of truffle salt in our gose, adding an earthy and funky element to the aroma and flavor certain to tantalize all of the foodies out there.

Bottle. Light gold pour, with a white head. Light fruit, grain, lemon, coriander, lightly spiced, and with some saltiness. Overall dry, light, and drinkable despite it’s oddities.

Tasted from the bottle. Light yellow golden in color with a pure white head. Aromas waft of some citrus , spice, and funk. Medium to light bodied beer. Initial flavors are some mildly tart lemon. pepper and herbs. Mid way to the back of the palate is where you get a dash of salt and a pretty decent one at that. The finish is good and lasting. Liked this beer but could have toned down the salt presence in my opinion.

On tap at the Bruery Provisions. Poured a lighter and hazy yellow color with a larger sized white head. Aromas of lots of spices, coriander, pepper, with some citrus. Tastes of the same spices, and citrus rinds.

Bottle from thome50, thanks! Pours a hazy white gold with a sticky head that persists. First things that hit the nose are the citrusy and fresh coriander along with the earthiness from the truffle. I was a bit skeptical of having such a savory component, but it works. Citrus really tends to dominate here, not a lot of lacto coming through in the nose. On taste, the salt and tartness are really subdued. I would expect more acidity here. Comes off like a very well made witbier with some saline components. the earthiness of the truffle works as wel. Solid, but not really what I expected. Will have to try again soon...

Bottle courtesy of bmanning. Served in a tulip. Pours a cloudy straw color with an average white head that lasts for quite a bit. Just a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward straw and wheat along with way too much coriander. A little bit of bread there. Almost a sage character there as well. The flavor has a lot of coriander and herbal characteristics plus a fairly-harsh saltiness. Too much of the truffle salt. Body is light and fizzy with a bitter and dry finish. Very odd and not one of the better gose beers I’ve come across. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-15-2011

Thanks to kiefdog for the share. Pours hazy lemon yellow with a white head. Nose is seawater, pepper, spice, light lemon tartness, and some fruit pith. Flavor is similar with pepper, spice, definite truffle presence, citrus pith and rind. Medium-bodied, and while I have only had three goses, this one is the best of them.

Poured into a weizen glass just shy of clear, a deep golden straw color, with a pillowy white head piled up high. Smells of spicy wheat, lemons and orange zest, I smell some salty sourness deep underneath. Very hefe like to me. Grainy earthy spicy flavor with more of the citrus and spices that were in the nose. Pilsener malt with a sour edge and a strange bite that I can only assume comes from the salt. Spirited level of carbonation provided a stream from the bottom of the glass right down to the end. Medium body with a citrusy tart mouthfeel. Interesting beer that kind of grew on me. I’d love to try some others but this may not be the style for me.

Bottle… Cloudy straw-colored ale with a large, frothy, white head. Good retention and blotchy lace. The nose is floral, perfumy notes, and array of pale grains, coriander and a hint of clove. Medium-bodied with a mildly silky mouthfeel and buzzing carbonation. The flavor offers floral hop bitterness and spicy coriander flanked by pale grains, ultra-light acidity and more than a pinch of salt. Finishes moderately salty and lightly bitter. Damn fine gose… although the best gose I’ve tried to date was brewed by fellow ratebeerian, redlight, and is not reviewable on this website. Muchos gracias to giarcsr for shipping this bottle of beer my way!

750ml bottle shared by Dosbeerigos. I didn’t really know what to make of this one. With the name Salt Of The Earth I expected it to be a little bit salty but not that much. It was pretty salty, almost tasting the ocean in a way. Not to the point that it was undrinkable but it wasn’t really my cup of tea.
