Ritterguts Gose is a top-fermented, sourish and slightly salty-tasting ale that was first brewed in 1824. It is the beer specialty of Leipzig and the oldest still existing Gose brand in the world. Gose is an own, ancient style of beer that does not correspond to the German purity law. Even today, it is still brewed with an admixture of coriander and salt in the traditional way with the special historic Gose yeast in open fermentation. Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by the additional lactate fermentation.
Brewed by Hartmannsdorf until 2014 (until 2007 @3.9%, then 4.2%), brewed by Reichenbrand in Chemnitz from 2015.

Lukaduke's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
Lukaduke (3197) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden peach color with a two finger fizzy head that fizzes out quickly. On the nose there is some nice round cereal malt, yogurt tartness and a nice dose of lemony citrus. On the palate its bright and refreshing with a great base maltiness that holds up nicely to the ripe tartness and citrus flavors. Perfectly balanced and amazingly drinkable... I love me a nice gose!

dandeman (956) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2017
Bouteille de 500ml du Canada Craft Club. Les levures lactique, la coriandre et le lger citron frappent dabord les narines. Au tournis, les levures sattardent encore plus. Puissance moyenne de son olfactif. Une mousse blanche et ptillante, plus persistante que ce quoi je mattendais, recouvre un liquide dor presquambr flou et opaque. La dlicatesse de lentre de bouche est surprenante. Tout est dans la subtilit. Les herbes sont prsentes sous forme de coriandre et assurent larrire plan. Lacidit est douce et chaleureuse sous forme de citron. Les levures lactiques sont efficaces. Le sal est juste point. On y trouve mme de petites notes de fruits sauvages et surettes tels la groseille. Douceur et complexit en sont les caractristiques principales. Le parfait exemple du style.

Spab (3732) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2017
500 ml bottle from Canada Craft Club. Pours a murky orange colour with small white head. Aroma is light, bright fruitiness, salt and a little graininess. Flavour has tart lemon and peach with fair amount of saltiness, a little yeasty funk and some light graininess. Lightly carbonated. Nice.

PhillyBeer2112 (2810) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2017
cloudy yellowish, some fizz but a bit lifeless in the glass (very little pop on decrowning, worth noting, the crown seemed a tad loose). Great nose, cheese and sour beer funk, nice mix of tart and mineral and salt flavors. Low carbonation. Light-medium body, tart semi-sweet finish. Lingering salt in the palate.

UXO (1888) - CANADA - APR 29, 2017
Appearance: slightly hazy straw with a short-lived fizzy white head, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: mild, lemon, brine, wheat, coriander. (6/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate tart, minimal bitter. (6/10) Palate: light body, lively to moderate carbonation, crisp tart and lightly salty finish. (4/5) Not bad, but not particularly interesting. I wonder if its a little elderly, because the head was short and short-lived, and the carbonation fell off rapidly. Bottom line, could stand to be a little brighter. (12/20) My 237th from the 2010 Edition of 1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die, 226th from the 2013 edition, and 249th combining both editions. 6/10 #1001beers #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com

MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top that settles quickly into nothing. Aroma has sour fruits, some peach, very light caramel malts, some wild yeast. Flavor is lightly tart, white fruits, a very light pinch of salt in the background, very dry in moutfheel, quite high in carbonation and fairly long in light tart aftertaste. A bit one-sided, still refreshing and quite enjoyable to drink. Nice example of the style for sure. Decent.

drpimento (3530) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2017
Interesting that is this is the oldest continuously brewed example of this kind of beer that this would be pretty much the definition of it and yet its not as quite appealing to me as I would have hoped. Aromas raisins, wet grain, musty. Flavors mainly tart, hints of sweet, salt, a little fruit. Great body and good carbonation. Decent long finish.

reebtogi (6208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2017
500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon with some coriander spice and hints of yeast and grass. Taste is a lemon tartness with a grassy hop bitterness and light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a well done brew that exemplifies the style. Recommended.
