COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This original Leipzig beer specialty lends us the name for our brewery. Gose is a regional beer specialty that was brought to Saxony-Anhalt in the year 1738.

Gose is brewed with the additional ingredients lactic acid, cilantro, and salt. Gose is a top-fermented beer with 4,5 Vol. % alcohol and 10,8 % wort. You can enjoy it in different variations.

This was a little pricy for the style but given that Ive never tried a gose it was worth $3.99. I would probably not opt to purchase it again for that reason but it was a very enjoyable experience. As far as light sessionable beers go this is worth a try if you can find it on sale (or happen to be in Europe where I imagine it is cheaper).

Aroma / Appearance - A short lived white head rushes to the top of the small sampler glass. Below was a golden body which did not trap any light at all. The scent of tartness and sourness filled my nostrils reminded me of a Berliner Weiss. Mangos, lemon bars and graham crackers smelled like a fruity morning buffet.

Flavor / Palate - The sourness and tartness immediately hit the throat followed by oranges. The lingering sourness dried out the mouth within ten minutes. It could be compared to a kristallweizen in the sense that it is like a light hefeweizen. For price per ounce it can be beat. If you want something off the beaten path though this is worth checking out.

Beerdedone (3381) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle. Pours a light amber with a small white head. Aroma of corriander, lemon, wheat, and some citrus. Flavor is wheat, corriander, grassy hops, lemon and has a light tartness with a light to medium body and a dry finish.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 29, 2008
[WBA styles tasting] Hazy golden yellow color. Flowery, perfume aroma.. almost like heather. Fruity pebbles? Primarily sour flavors, but not overpowering. Not really "musty", but very gueuze like. Mellow saltiness.. again, not overpowering in any way. Lemon/citrus finish, with a slight coriander aftertaste. Very subtle phenols. Overall, amazingly complex; this definitely blurs the lines of several styles.

Dogbrick (12749) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle from Winking Lizard. This brew is a cloudy yellow-gold color with a thick white head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and yeast. Medium-bodied with a tart fruity character, and flavors of yeast and spices along with mildly sweet wheat. The finish is fruity and leaves a tart citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

Strykzone (7252) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2008
This was a very different kind of beer from anything I have sampled. The wheat does come through in a coriander flavor but this is definitely not a traditional hefeweizen. Very little aroma.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Aroma is lemon zest and spice with just a tiny hint of mustiness. Flavor is a bit like a lightly salted lemony brioche. Very interesting.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - FEB 3, 2008
Bottle from Belmont station. Pours a golden/straw color with light haze. Dense head with great clinging of lace. The aroma is very pleasant and subtle. Notes of coriander, banana, wheat presence and lemon zest. The taste is very thirst quencing. The coriander and salt from this brew make it the gatorade of beers! I could drink this all night long and hope to this summer if its still available. Great unique style!

thegreenrooster (4328) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Pour is a cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is corriander with some lemon and spices. Flavor is fruity with some lemon and corriander again but with a touch of wheat and spice. Finish is dry and sour. Kind of like a toned down Berliner Weiss and decent enough to get a few bottles of.

kappldav123 (6089) - GERMANY - JAN 6, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 On tap at the brewery. 6 years after my first rating its time for a new one. The gose in the glass is golden-yellow, nice head. Wonderful fruity-spicy aroma. Starts zippy, fruity, fine fruity notes of lemon. Light sourish. Reminds me of young apricots. More and more salty and spicy, not too intense. I enjoyed that wonderful aroma with every sip of this. Finish less sourish, still malty and salty. Well balanced finish. Could drink liters of this. Awesome!
