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.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - APR 24, 2013
Sampled in a big bottle. Was recommended as it was an original version of a sour. Really enjoyed this beer which was refreshing and citrus base. Very nice brew. Would certainly try to find again.

Got this one at the LCBO, part of its Summer 2017 beer program. Definitely an original beer. I like the sourness and saltiness of this beer. A must try.

rand (1820) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 17, 2017
Bottle 0,5 l / Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Veiled blonde straw with an average white head quickly disapeared and leaving a circular ring. Sourish and fresh beer, with lemon, cottage cheese, wheat and salt. Hints of coriander and gooseberry. Crisp and mossy, low bitter, rancid and lactic notes.

Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2017
Well done gose. A touch sour in the finish. Big salt all the way, yes the classic. Not super drinkable but also not masked by fruit.

3.7
blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2017
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Nice aroma (7+) of lime, salt, grain, lactose and fruit. Flavour (7+), also nice, is lightly tart, salty and fruity. Average bodied. Well done and enjoyable.

tapefuzz (824) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 7, 2017
500mL bottle. Pours a hazy, burnt orange-ish gold with a small off-white head. Aroma is sour; spice, lemon, some funk, and wheat. Taste is lactic, lemon, wheat, light coriander, some orange, more spice, and a light funkiness in the yeast. Light salinity. Dry finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Crisp-ish mouthfeel.

3.2
gramity (1684) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 26, 2017

Milton LCBO Outlet #1 (Milton, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a slightly hazed metallic gold colour with a white head that had the retention of a soft-drink, There is plenty of effervescence visible in the glass. The aroma is tart fruit, spices, and yeast. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with above average carbonation. The flavour is very tart, with spices and salt thrown in. A better than average gose.
