Samuel Adams continues to expand their Small Batch Series in 2012. On the schedule is Verloren, and gose. There arent a lot of U.S. brewers making a gose, especially a brewery as large as Boston Beer. Thats probably why they dubbed it Verloren or lost beer . (Its Dutch.) The style originated in Goselar, Germany in the 18th century. Gose became very popular the adjacent city of Leipzig, Germany due to a lot of local breweries brewing the style. Gose all but died out during WWII due to brewery closings. Expect this beer to have a touch of sourness, with notes of lemon & salt. A link to the ales of Saxony that had all but vanished, Gose is a peculiar yet captivating brew. With a base of an unfiltered wheat ale, its vivid and refreshing yet also has a softness to it. The flavor is brought to life by an unexpected touch of salt for a mineral quality, and coriander for a peppery spice. The result is an unusual and delicate brew thats full of flavors to discover. Batch #1

This one smells just a little too sweet for me. Pours an amber color with a thick head. Just a little sourness in this, like from citrus.

Patrickctenchi (6473) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours a murky orange-brown with a soapy off-white head. Scent is salted, acidic, fruits...almost a yellow tomato aroma and flavour. Not sour at all.....the salt sees to that....slight wheaty-ness as it warms. Fairly good flavour, a little weak, but still, a nice different beer. I found myself liking it more as it went along.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7521) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
From the July 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a golden-tan color with a small off white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was citrus, pepper and pineapple. The flavor was pepper, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, sugar, yogurt and yeast. The finish was long and tangy with lingering sugar, tropical fruits and pepper. Full bodied. Well done.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Batch #1. Pours a clear dark orange/amber with almost no head. Aroma of coriander, orange citrus and bready malt. Taste is light sour and light salty. Lemon citrus and salt, just as described. Medium bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, very good. Ive never had this style, and probably never will again. Very interesting and another home run from Boston Beer Company.

A medium bodied gose. The malts are fruity and sweet, with a touch of orange and orange peel. The hops are earthy. Decent balance. Nice carbonation.

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Aroma: Lots of earthy yeast aromas, with hints of cooked vegetables. Appearance: Cloudy dark gold with a thin white head. Taste: Immediate medium sourness which is quickly balanced by a light sweetness and finishes with a hint of saltiness. Palate: Light-medium body, thin milky texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: I am very intrigued and caught off guard by this beer. There is a great complexity in the flavor that really works well, and no one taste is too overpowering.

Bottled. Pours a deep straw, with a white head. Fruity, spicy aroma, malt, caramel, toffee. Dry, medium body, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Spicy, slightly salty taste, malt, coriander seeds, apricot, caramel. Lacks the typical sourness I expect from a Gose. (2012-06-11)

dwyerpg (5951) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Im sure Ive never had a gose before but mostly this tasted like a pretty good amber ale to my wife and I. Perhaps a bit salty and malty, it was easy enough drinking at the pool on a hot las Vegas day.

Clear amber color, fine carbonation, delicate white head. Aromas are bready, yeasty, with slight fruit and pine notes, Flavor is delicate, balanced, with a lingering bitter finish. Its cool that the folks at Samuel Adams did a Gose.
