Hey all,

So I was just about to add Flying Dog Gose brewed with salt, coriander, and Old Bay seasoning, but I don’t really know what the best category. Traditional ale like Bahnhof Leipziger Gose et al, or more spice/herb/vegetable because of the Old Bay addition?

Traditional, I’d say.

I think a true Gose falls under the Traditional Ale category.

But, at least around here (Midwest), we’ve been finding a lot of soured wheat base ales without Salt at all.. the brewery calls them Gose (Brugge, Destihl) lately.. when in fact, they are more in line with Berliner Weiss.. or a barrel aged Sour/Wild Wheat ale..

Does the Destihl not have salt? The beer shouldn’t taste salty, just have a mineral quality to it.

So when is the semi-annual "gose should be its own style in the database" argument going to start?
