Brewed by Portsmouth Brewery
, New Hampshire
Gose is an ancient German sour wheat beer that is brewed with coriander and salt. We get the sour characteristic from a partial sour mash rather then using the Pedio in the secondary. In the Dunkel version we bumped up the malt profile and added some caramel malts to give some color and a little malt sweetness. To compared it to any other beer is hard because I only know of one Dunkel Gose being brewed in the world (if you know of any others let me know), Goslarer Dunkel Gose brewed in Goslar Germany. Compared to that beer, ours is a little darker and a bit higher in alcohol (5.5% vs. 4.9%). Leave it to an American to take a traditional European beer style and bump up the body and alcohol.
