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.

Cletus (6351) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 1, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 Bottle courtesy of kappldav123. Pours a very cloudy amber with a nice white head. Smells of generous coriander, bubblegum, bananas, cloves, cumin, traces of salt, sweet wheat, some mineral hints. Tastes of tarte lacto, lemon, salt, lots of heavy full elements, some mineral water. Mouthfeel is full and tarte with a finish that is dry and possesses lots of lactic qualities. Anyone interested in ancestors of gueuze should seek this one out as it is much more over the top than the gose that is exported to the U.S. On par with a really good Berliner Weiss but more full bodied which is surprising for a beer with a 3.9% ABV.
