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.

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.

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.

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.
