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.
World Beer Awards London: Worlds Best Gose 2013, Europes Best Gose 2014, World Beer Idol 2016: Gose Gold, World Beer Cup 2016: Bronze Medal
Brewed by Hartmannsdorf until 2014 (until 2007 @3.9%), brewed by Reichenbrand in Chemnitz from 2015.

Orangish pour, frothy white head. Always nice to find a gem sitting on the shelf locally. I really enjoyed this one a lot. Salty, tart, wheat, yeast...balanced and refreshing. Good stuff.

Bottle shared at Gaasa, july 5th 2013. Clear golden body, big white head. Aroma of dry malt, white wine, wheat, apples. Taste of spicy and sour yeast, thick malty body, wheat and lemons. Pleasant light sourness, refreshing finish. A nice experience!

I enjoyed this well enough though it wasnt quite as popping as Id hoped. It lacked much brightness. Delicious but disappointing.

The beer pours a dark, hazy gold with a fizzy, white, soda-pop head that quickly fizzles away. In body the beer is dark, yet translucent, showing murky, cloudy hints of the other side of the glass, along with a healthy torrent of bubbles. No particles can be seen in the beer. On the nose, the beer smells lightly tart and wheaty, like a wheat flake and a subdued Berliner Weisse. Light saline notes also puff upon the tongue, though I dont think I would detect them if I didnt know this was a gose. Lemon citrus is light, yet bright on the nose, giving a nice pop and inviting you to drink the beer. On the tongue, the beer tastes initially tart, nearly puckering, but this mellows into a soft, bready sweetness with just a touch of saltiness, and a deeper earthy sense to suggest that this is a gose. In flavor, the beer begins as sharp lemon-lime citrus, which mellows into sweet lemon, then lemon bread, and then slowly works into a soft, fluffy, wheat flake flavor that finishes soft and comforting on the tongue for a decent amount of time. In the middle of the taste, the earthy and mineral flavors can be distinctly sensed as the lemon citrus dies down. The aftertaste is soft, but distinctly flavored with wheat malt notes. In the mouth, the beer feels fizzy, yet light in body. The carbonation is at soda-levels, with a slightly sharp effervescence that snaps upon the tongue and gives the beer a crispness. The mouth is left wet with acid-canceling saliva on the cheeks and a very soft chalkiness. Overall, this beer is hugely refreshing and very tasty. Its not quite as salty as I was hoping it would be, but its the first old-world gose Ive tried, so I blame new world interpretations for making me expect big salt. The beer is soft, yet nuanced, like a well-crafted ginger ale with alcohol and deeper citrus flavors. Its crisp, refreshing, and perfect to slake your thirst in summer. Try this beer.

Pours a clear dark gold with a tiny veil of foam that leaves some lacing. Aroma is of spicy coriander and lactic acid. Taste is tart but only slightly so with a saltier finish than most goses Ive had to date. Flavors of lemons and salt mostly. Not complex at all but I believe this isnt the focus with such a style. Carbonation level is low to medium, body is light. Really drinkable, highly refreshing. Nice stuff!

Clear, brassy gold with a thin white head... Tart lemon aroma. Clingy, sticky lemon malt taste. Mild saltiness. Nice and understated.

On tap in Dc, very refreshing, of course salty and a bit sour but not a shanty, well balanced and only mildly carbonated
