COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our interpretation of Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), a traditional German-style sour wheat beer brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback.

Can. Hazy gold colour, no head. Aroma and taste reminds me sauerkraut or water from pickled cucumbers. Very dry. Salt is perceptible, but light. Some wheat notes.

fkoolen (567) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
Can at home. Nicely cloudy yellow colour, big white foamy head. Incredibly fruity nose with red berries, mandarin, and sour white grapes, coming back in the taste as well; tard, light salt, light earthy. Dry finish. Nicely complex, especially considering the low abv. Medium body, lively carbonation, creamy mouthfeel.

BadAprilia1000 (377) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with a white thin head. Aroma is salty, fruity, coriander and spices, wheat, green apple. Taste is salt, green apple, wheat, spices. Great gose, awesome drinkable version of the style, a bit heavier than my usual on salt for the style but still great. Worth having a sixer of if possible.

So many beers, so little time and so many I can’t get to without a struggle. But I got this one! I pour the beer into a stange, the honey-lemon liquid is capped fleetingly with a bright white foam. The head is gone by the time I put my camera away, and I find myself with a headless brew. The aroma is funky, tart-lemon, and it tickles my sinuses as I breathe it in. It’s really earthy and a bit salty; and I can almost taste the ocean when I tip the glass to drink. I take small sips at first, then large swallows, flooding my mouth with the beer, gaging the feel of it. It’s so lively that at first I don’t even notice the sour, but then the brew warms on my tongue and loses that initial buzz. Now the taste comes on to me, punching its way from my lips to my throat, graceful but angry. This has a beautifully light body, and to have that kind of carbonation and taste combination, it must. The flavors are carried over from the aroma, the saltiness of the nose creating an excellently supportive dryness on my tongue and gums; allowing the earthy, lemony sourness to play over my taste buds. It is a bit of a finish, lengthy and of course, the Gose being what it is, I should expect that. There are just some tastes that hang on longer than others. This is surprisingly mellow for a sour beer, and being certain that it is at the recommended temperature is key. I let it warm a bit just to see how it goes and I am not happy with it at all. Keep it cold. It’s quite delicious if you keep it cold!

@ Basunen 15-6-27: doftar salt och krydda. Smaken är härligt syrligt med inslag av citrus och gräs. Gott. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
