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.

Boutip (5468) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy pale yellow color ale with a huge white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma is quite unique with great notes of bready yeast with a dry malt base and some light subtle salty notes with great floral undertones. Taste is also a unique and interesting mix between some light salty notes with floral undertones and a quite dry malt base with some bready yeasty notes. Body is quite full with super great carbonation that fits the style and no apparent alcohol. I wasn’t sure I was going to like this based on the deScription but ended tasting a very nice and unique beer.

OK, here’s the deal - This beer stinks. Are familiar with Salt risen bread? no? how about gym socks? I know it’s supposed to smell like that, but much like stinky cheese, it doesn’t mean I have like it. Although, also like stinky cheese, it actually tastes prety good, with an earthiness and a crisp fruitiness. Also salt and mushroom are in there. Thanks grownfool for this one.

Bottle shared by Kyle, thanks! Pours a clear pale gold with visible heavy carbonation and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of salt and coriander backed by slight grain. Flavor is similar with a good amount of salt and coriander. Odd.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Kiefer. Pours a cloudy yellow, with fluffy white head. In the nose, there is a slight funk, but not from the yeast. There is a very earthy mushroom scent with a light sweetness and some saltiness. Taste is mildly dry with a slight sourness from the lactose, some sea salt and the same earthy funkiness as the nose. Really unique beer for me and really glad to try.

25oz bottle as part of my RS allotment. This one sounded like something DFH was coming up with, salt and a gose? Either way, shared amongst friends, poured a foggy lemon color hue, hue white head. Aromas really danced with spices, almost herbal and nutmeg, confusing the hell out of me. palate followed with a slight creaminess followed by citrus and a white pepper spice finish. Not really my cup of tea, but at the same time was worth the try.

750ml bottle part of the society... Pours a hazy seems to be gritty pale yellow brown hue and topped with a creamy white head... Aroma comprises up of tart of ginger, lemon, and a light spice... Flavors have a similar profile with lemon, spice and herbaceousness. Some salt comes through late and finishing off with an herbal spicy bitterness. Soft fluffy body and easily drinkable. Interesting to say the least.

In short: Liquefied cheap salted crackers. Not fun
How: Bottle 750ml. Shared with friends at a dinner. Consumed relatively fresh, approximately 3 months after first bottle rating.
The look: Cloudy dark yellow body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is a bit musty, a touch of lemon and human urine (not cat piss, really human urine). Taste has fortunately plenty of salt because we need something to cover up that flawed beer. There was some hay and some other stuff but I’ll cut this deScription short and say that this beer simply tasted like cheap commercial salted crackers (Premium Plus™) with a bit of lemon muffin. A gose needs to be salty, and this one was very much so. It might be respectful of the style but I thought it was a very boring beer. According to Oxford Dictionary of Idioms, “the salt of the earth” is describes “a person or persons of great kindness”. This is actually what many people call me up here in Montreal but because of their funny french accent they mispronounce “Salt” into “Scum”. I love you too guys.

Barreras (1420) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow color with aroma of salt from the beach. Taste is slightly sour with a sea salt aftertaste. An acquired taste that doesn’t suit my palate. I’m not a fan...

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2011 Pale yellow. Saison like aroma with brine. Lots for grain, bread crust, medium bitterness with an odd though not bad not of salt at the back of your throat. It’s light, somewhat more bitter than u imagine and oddly earthy. Not bad for an occasional sipper.
