COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 it’s not as quite appealing to me as I would have hoped. Aroma’s raisins, wet grain, musty. Flavor’s mainly tart, hints of sweet, salt, a little fruit. Great body and good carbonation. Decent long finish.

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.

Giochaurand (532) - FINLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours slightly turbid orange with almost no head. Aroma is acidic, apples, malts. Disappointing watery palate. Flavour is malty, citric, salty, slightly tarty.

PintjeFritz (323) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2017
Nice labels with a lot of information, cloudy golden beer with short white head, smell is sour and salty, taste is sour but not too much, good drinkability and perfect for hot days, (I have 0.5l bottle with best-before 4/17 11:45 and batch L2226P11)

BeerViking (4710) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle, pours golden amber with a fast-settling head, faintly tart, nutty and corny nose with a note of citrus skins. On the palate the initial saltiness is very light and just enough to prickle, then there’s a tartness that’s somehow lemony and refreshing without tasting of lemon. Rather more-ish...

Hopmaestro (1626) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2017
I’d say that when it comes to Gose’s everyone is doing their take nowadays. Look no further than to the original. Aroma is grassy and citrusy with wheat crackers. Taste is lemon fresh with minerals and light tartness. It’s not that salty that you would expect, but very balanced salty minerals. Great stuff.

Salty beer, also yogurt, lactic, tart, lemon juice... I didn’t like it at all!

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2016 Bionda con sottile schiuma bianca. Aroma molto piacevole con nota erbacea, al palato ottimao equilibrio del salato, sentore acidulo. Beverina.
