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.

Pours a super cloudy straw yellow with a small bubbly white head. Some nice tart berry notes on the nose, wheat, coriander, light lemon notes, and slightly grassy. Mhmm, tastes like a very tart somewhat salty lemonade. nice wheat and spicy taste, some straw and grassy notes, and some other citrusy fruit notes. Great beer for hot weather, and I could see this pairing well with seafood.

16/XII/14 - 12Fl. Oz. can from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - canned: IX/9/14 (2014-1511) Thanks to Klaas for the can!

Hazy pale yellow to beige beer, off-white head, falls down immediately, non adhesive. Aroma: overripe fruits, funky, lemony, banana peel, pretty weird. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very lemony, vinegar, very sour, funky, dairy notes, yoghurt, very weird. Aftertaste: bit fruity, some grapefruit, sourish, lemony, more butter milk, vinegar, stomach acid (so as not to use the word "vomit"). Interesting for sure.

Can. Cloudy yellow body with a totally disappearing head. Sour aroma with some salty pretzels. Also sweaty socks. Ugh. Very acidic sour taste like raw lemons. I am not getting much else. If this is a good example of the "Gose" style then there’s a damn good reason why this style went "nearly extinct". I would rather drink raw lemon juice than this - at least lemon juice rewards you with plenty of healthy vitamin C for going through with this masochistic act.

Vighals (1484) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2015
Gulbrun tåkete uten skum. Lukter gjær, epler og gress. Syrlig sur smak. Mot bæreddik og rabarbra. Koseøl. Snerpende. Perlende.

martjoobolut (1039) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 23, 2015
Can (from Koht, Tallinn). Pours very hazy straw-golden with whiteish head. The head doesn’t stay. Aroma is very tart, spices, citrus. Flavor is very tart, fruits, some popcorn, salt. Finish is salty and sour. Doesn’t feel watery. Overall: ok brew, great for cleaning palate after some heavy ba istout.

Pours hazy golden color with white head. Tart fruity aroma with some yeast and some mustiness. Fine bubbly mouthfeel. Flavor has a very dry tart fruity pear and citrus start. Slight saltiness and finishing with a crisp tart citrus. After swallow my mouth salivates. So refreshing. Oh man, I love this style! A real treat. Thanks Maxbier.

12 oz can shared by devman171 at the Annapolis tasting. Canned on 4/1/2014. Clear straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of salt and tart notes. Tastes of salt, big tart notes, lemon and lime. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Another gose I’ve been wanting to try, lived up to the hype and didn’t disappoint.

355ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) Shared by Elvira - thanks!
Harsh salty sour aroma. Also smells of body parts that I can’t name. Mosty as I haven’t identified which cleft, bifurcation or fold it is associated with. Anna thinks it might be belly-button. Quote from the Aussie dude "shit that tastes gross", after only sniffing it. As it warms, the wheatiness comes over more. In the mouth it is really sharp and sour, with crisp carbonation. Wheaty, milky, salty, and harshly acidic. This would be a damn good hangover beer. Finish has plenty of wheat, that comes over quite nicely, and is the best thing about the brew. Clearly a victim of forced innoculation, and not traditional techniques - this level of acidity would be considered toxic in central europe. A fun challenge to finish the can, I think I’m gonna make it. Oops, a tooth just dropped out, and my lower lip is hanging off. Frightened to use a straw in case I drill through the roof of my mouth to my brain. Looking forward to Marduk’s review more than to another one of these...

suurjuust (1292) - ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2015
Murky yellow, almost no head to speak of. Nose is malt, wheat, citrus, sourness. Flavor is very tart, tons of sourness and acidity, yeast. Salty, almost tastes like salted beans, aftertaste. Pretty refreshing, but not for quaffing. Thanks to martjoobolut for sharing!
