A bit of funk on the aroma with a nice cloudy amber hue. Decent head with additional aromas of coriander. Pleasant and refreshing with a nice bit of mouthfeel. A bit of lemon peel on the flavour and aftertaste. Some decent complexity in this one.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Thanks to David for the bottle! Poured a lovely shade of medium caramel with a creamy cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of soft peppery spices, a bit of wheat tartness, and undercurrents of fruit peel sourness... quite nice! The flavor had a dry, dusty wheat backbone with peppery spices and tart fruity notes building around the edges and through the finish.. spices were a little much for me, but this was certainly refreshing.. sticky bananas and spices on the finish. Lighter, bodied, sour, dry, and very refreshing on the palate.. high carbonation.. this was well-done, and grew on me as I drank it. 7 4 6 4 14

Sampled 6/1/08. Poured hazy lighter golden with a short, fine-bubbled cap of white head. The aroma picked up coriander spicage and pineapple upfront with a bit of floral appeal.. lemon zest accents. The flavor was similar with light, fresh fruits paired with dry peppery spices and lemon zest.. complex, tasty, and refreshing. Light, dancing kind of feel on the palate with a delicate balance of spices, tartness, and fruit.. refreshing.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 Pours a cloudy, golden color with a nice white head. Odd, sweet cigar aroma, pipe tobacco maybe... Candy sugars and malt dominate here, strange sourness, and even stranger dry, parching finish. Worth searching out.

Very fresh nose of wheat, grapes,and spice. Pours sparkling clover honey amber. The tall and stiff frothy white fully lasting headthat leaves good lace. The flavor is laced with a heavy acidity that mixes with the dried fruit presence to form a bittersweet tartness that is very interesting and enjoyable. The finish is relatively brief. The light body is super creamy and soft. The finish is crisp. What a great surprise!

Pours a light head that dissipates quickly leaving a little lacing behind. It has a dark brown to gold appearance that looks fairly clear and crisp. The smell reminds me of as sweet bock bier. Its very fruity like apple and berry coupled with a hoppy smell. This bier is salty, the first bier I have ever had that is bitter and salty. Slightly spiced with salty flavors and hops.

33 cL bottle. Something of a lemon citrus aroma. Hazy light gold color with a white head that laced a bit. Medium body with sharp, fizzy carbonation. The flavor is lemon, wheat, coriander and rather salty. A tad funky sour, but not distressingly so. The finish is dry, a little astringent, and there is a character like chewing on berry seeds - sort of bitter and woody. Unique. Cant see it as my beer on a desert island, but every so often.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2007
0.75l bottle, 4.5% a/v VERY strange bottle, brought back from germany by my mom from her recent trip there. Very light yellow pour, like sunshine/lemons with a decent long lasting white head. Nose is very complex, and is hard to describe, wheat, citrus, hay, spice, and coriander seem to be the major players. The taste is also intriguing, it starts off with very little taste, then you have the mild bitterness of the lactic acid, followed by the spice of the wheat and coriander, with an aftertaste almost of raspberries. VERY complex and interesting beer.

Poured from a small bottle a clouded bubbly and slightly dirty straw body with a thick off-white head. Nose of wheat, lemon, yeast, and mild soapy spice. Hints of herbs and coriander. Slightly sour and overall delectable.

Draft at the brewery in Leipzig.

What a delight to come to Leipzig and sample their gose first-hand. At my insistence we made our way to Bayerischer Bahnhof to drink it from the source. Tall cloudy vaselike glasses of gose appeared, two straight and one with caraway syrup. The aroma is musty, funky, sour, almost familiar, somewhere between saison and gueze; one might slander the nose as a mixture of lemonade and vomit, but it is not nearly so unpleasant as that description might suggest.

The real delight comes in the flavor. Less sour than expected though with notable lactic acid, what really comes through is the wild barnyard nature of this beer, like a lovely sour saison, lightly spiced, at once quenching and further provoking ones thirst (must be the salt). I could drink gallons of this stuff, I thought to myself as I proceeded; not a beer to drink slowly and savor so much as a beer to drink deep and enjoy.

Ultimately it may not carry quite the sour intensity or spiced complexity of Leipzigs other gose, Dollnitzer Ritterguts, but its actually more drinkable than that one (at least in large volume) and is a delight to drink here at the place it is brewed. Another very good experience.

[Odense-tasting at Scheffel. Bottle from thewolf.] Gose ought to have their own category. Like blanche de Namur, sour wheat, grapes, coriander, wild yeast, dryness, salt, acidity and one of a style that Ill go for when possible.
