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 weíd 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.

GT2 (9411) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 9, 2012
750mL thanks to nmann08. Huge white head eruption on a muddier, cloudy light golden. Thick lace. Nose is huge buttered popcorn/diacetyl. Carbonation on the palate is effervescent. Taste is odd with big celery character, diacetyl, and apple along with home brewing flaws like heavy minerals and odd infecting bacteria. Tart lemon finish. Moderate salt character. Less salty than Veritas 009. Very weird. Did not enjoy this.

Bottle, out of my Maudite glass. Shared with Cole and TheHulk, while we watched Hobo with a Shotgun. Great movie. Pours clear yellow; thick white head, great lacing. Nose is sweet yeast/cold cream, rosewater, grain, truffles, some Champagne-like notes here too... Flavours of coriander, earth, some real salty notes here, but overall a bit bland.

Bottle & Draft. I remember the first time I had this at the Bruery Reserve party and I thought it did such a great job of cutting and cleaning the pallet after drinking so many rich, dark beers. I didnít rate it as I was a little tipsy so here goes with a bottle. Pours a slight cloudy straw yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is an odd mixture of earth and salt, like sort of being on a farm that is right by the ocean. Medium mouthfeel. The saltiness hits you right away and is unlike any other beer I have had before. Slightly wheaty. Overall, an interesting beer.

750ml bottle. The pour yields an extremely cloudy, dusky, glowing golden straw colored body. A tall, dense head of off-white foam lasts for ages, dropping slowly to a lumpy, bubbly blanket, and leaving thick, clumpy swaths of lacing all over the glass. Beautiful looking beer! Aromas start of dry and crisp, showing a super clean wheat base with a soft, mildly lactic tartness and subtle wisps of lemon and coriander. Though salt isnít specifically identifiable, an overlying waft of minerality keeps things dry, and it certainly lets you know that this is a different sort of animal. Upon the first sip, the dryness that the salt lends is immediately identified....and welcomed. It cuts the wheat malt right down to size, obliterating much of the sweetness that might have once existed, leaving just a touch of sugar for balance and softness. The salt works wonderfully with the slightly tart lemony notes and restrained peppery coriander. Yeast is saison-like, dry and fruity and delicious. The palate really couldnít be much better, dry to the brink of parching, with just enough residual sweetness to snatch it off the ledge. Carbonation cuts through the body like a laser. You just want to keep drinking more and more of this beer. Outstanding stuff, overall, and easily the best Bruery beer Iíve had. This shows you what these guys are capable of when they show some finesse.
