Wild Rose Gose Rider is a Gose, a style of wheat beer made with coriander and salt that is native to Northern Germany. “Unable to find any commercial examples we brewed a test batch in an attempt to understand how the unique ingredients would work together,” said Brian Smith, Director of Brewing Operations at Wild Rose. “The results were so positive that Gose was tabbed to be our summer seasonal release.” Described as being “extremely refreshing” with a “slight sourness and higher carbonation level (that) complement the ingredients,” Gose Rider was launched by the brewery last week. It’s available now in 650 ml bottles at the Wild Rose taproom & retail store and at select retailers in Alberta, and will remain in production until August.

Pours a slightly hazy bright straw yellow with one finger of dense white head, excellent retention and light to moderate lacing. Nose is citrus, salt, with faint wheat and coriander. Taste is is similar, leading with salty citrus and finishing slightly sour. Medium to light body, with moderate sustained carbonation. Dunno if this is all that representative of the style, since the brewers seem to have worked from theory instead of direct experience. Mind you, since the style actually went extinct, that’s kind of true across the board. What causes me more concern is the "Enjoy by 09/01/2013", making me wonder if it’s a little less tart than it should be. That being said, it’s not bad - the tartness makes it fairly refreshing, but I’m not sure the saltiness actually adds anything.

drsordr (2372) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
From notes for RBWG. Bottle pour light hazy gold. Nose tart, almost tomato, some sweetness. Taste, salt hits the palate first. Then some sour and tomato based citric acid. Just not one of my favorite styles.

[Bottle (650ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a pale yellow-gold with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Nice aroma, fruity and salty along with herbs and some wheat. Citrusy and herbal flavour along with a good amount of salt, wheat and more fruit. Average bodied. Surprisingly good and refreshing.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
2014-05-02. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is quite pleasant, it has a sort of salty quality to it and pleasantly fruity, gooseberry like character throughout, grassy wheaty touches. 7+ Flavour is similar whisper of salt around the edges, fruit, lightly sour and tart throughout in a way that is pretty refreshing. Average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. Lovely stuff, very quaffable. Bottled dated Enjoy by 09/01/2013, via trade with Ferris

Nice balance here. The salt is well integrated, bit of a soapy finish, but otherwise excellent. Quite a it spicy too.
