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.

Distinct aroma--salt is present immediately. Pours a pale yellow colour, unfiltered, very little head. Salt is present immediately on tip of tongue and coriander flavour opens up on the finish. Definitely not a refreshing beer on a hot day, and not really a taste I'm fond of though I appreciate it as an example of the Gose style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pootzboy (1737) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2017
1/2 liter Bottle racked 3 months ago - decants a lightly hazed pale straw colored ale with a puffy 3 finger cap which reduces quickly to a lasting surface lace. Aromas are complex but demure - tart, bready smells, coriander and some salt with a woodsy-musty-funky tone - magnificent! Soft mouth feel, light bodied, tart-salty-bready character. The Flavor is directly to style profile - dusty biscuity malts are met with salty-tart-spicy notes - these flavors balance without the detection of hops - finish is long dry, sour and lightly bitter riding on a corriander under tone. Absolutely refreshing, tart dry summer drink - world class - the benchmark other Gose brewers will be judged by.

Scipio (1082) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2017
Pours a clear golden with a thinner white head. The aroma is salty and tart, with floral hops, lemon, yeast, grape, and wheat. Wheat and lemon seem to be most prominent here. The taste begins tart, which then recedes into a salty finish. The tart’s level of intensity is actually pretty tame. There is an easy balance of wheat, apple, and grape flavors throughout, white lemon is found in the very salty aftertaste. Light in body, smooth in texture, softer in carbonation. This gose is more relaxed and easier to drink than others that I’ve had.

Tranquillity (2333) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2017
Bottled. Hazy yellow, small white head. The aroma has salt and caramel. The taste is sour with a good balance and the finish is sweet and tart.

robinvboyer (4670) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2017
Gold pour, with a small white head. Nice wheat Aroma, savoury, some salt and hints if herbs. Thin mouth feel, lovely soft carb. The finish is tart, but pleasant, not overpowering at all, nice saltiness, lots of lemon notes and soft herbs. Solid!

lebermilz (290) - GERMANY - JUN 25, 2017
On tap at Ohne Bedenken. Murky orange, white head. Lactic, orange, Quite sour, medium carbonation.
