COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. Thanks to Dunt for bringing this over and then leaving it in my fridge for a few weeks. No seriously, that was great. The beer pours a faded golden straw color, mostly transparent with a little bit of haze. A white cap froths up with the initial pour before slowly fading. Salt of the Earth definitely has a strange nose. There is a light dry malt character that reminds me of a saison, a strong burst of lemon zest, some saltiness, and some vegetal and skunky notes that are not that pleasant. The flavor starts with a light, dry, crackery malt with a little bit of pepper. A strong lemon tartness is full and strong without being piercing. Some other light fruits are noticeable as well. Toward the end of the sip it definitely turns salty. The salt proves to dry the mouth out further and leave my mouth with milder version of what dying of thirst must be like. There is a mushroom and vegetal flavor that covers the entire sip. The carbonation is slightly crisp, and the beer has a smooth, light body. It is very dry, a sensation that is only accentuated by the saltiness. Overall this was rough enough that I did not want to finish my glass.

A - Pours a hazy pale-yellow with a big two-fingers of frothy white head atop. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some good lacing. S - Aroma is full of funk and sourness with some lemon zest, sea salt, grains, tart fruits, and light spices. T - Starts off with some sourness and funk with some tart lemon and a bit of truffle salt. Through the middle, some grains come through with more funk, yeast flavor, light spice, and butter. The finish is a mix of sour and farmhouse funk flavors with some grain, acidic lemon, truffle salt, and some tart light fruits. M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sour, funky, and lightly acidic finish. D - Very drinkable. Very interesting mix of flavors with a nice element added by the sea salt. The balance is good with a nice mix of sour and funky flavors.

Shudder inducing. Nose is equal parts tart, salt and skunk. Dries out the mouth and is altogether revolting. Granted this is my first gose, and I’d this is representative of the style it’ll be my last. There’s a lingering vegetal quality that I hope is not supposed to be there. Couldn’t finish my pour.

Brought this GEM!!!! out to our Tuesday tasting. I’m so happy to be getting rid of this. Pours a light yellow with two fingers worth of effervescent white head. The aroma is seriously disgusting, it reminds me of something that would trigger a gag reflex when I’m really hung over, just putrid. Flavor is slightly better? Salty, tarty, and dry....some lemon peel, god this is gross. Spritzy carbonation, light mouthfeel, and a sadly long finish. This beer style needs to be extinct. Upright’s gose is a better attempt at this style but there is just nothing appealing about this.
