joergen (29800) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
Draught at Berliner Bierfestival.
Hazy yellow coloured with a solid white head.
Acidic aroma with spicy notes.
Flavour of lactic acid and spices with notes of fruits, wood and salt.
Funny. rpattinson (84) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2005
Apple and pear aroma; sour taste with apple, horseblanket and lemon; sour fruity finish with lemon and apple aromas.
An outstanding beer with a flavour profile usually unseen outside Belgium. It tastes quite like a young lambic with the carbonation level of a gueuze. Surely they must be using brettanomyces to get this taste? It tastes pretty much exactly as I would expect a gose, except for maybe lacking a touch of coriander. omhper (26060) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2003 Sampled draught Sinfonie, Leipzig.
This is an excellent pub in downtown Leipzig. It must be extremely rare for a pub to serve all three major German wheat beer styles (weizen, berliner weisse and gose), but this place does. And on top of this gose is the real shit. Pale orange and cloudy with average head in it's traditional long, thin glass. Acidic, lemony appley aroma. Mild acidity balanced by salt. Tart and lightly yeasty. Firm and refreshing, superbly drinkable with vital, elastic winegum finish. Stunningly unique and rich, yet so refreshing. Makes a trip to Leipzig worthwile. Please note that this is not the same beer as is available in bottle in the US.
