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

Mild herbal aroma, pours a clear amber with a full white head. The salt and the spices create a complex beer, thats light on the palate, and refreshing on a warm summer night. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.

500ml bottle poured a golden yellow color, aromas of salt water, and a touch of light citrus. Flavors are all salt, almost as much as a brine treatment. Each sip made me want more to quench my thirst, saltest beer Ive had for sure.

Cybercat (5396) - Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Malty aroma has firm fruity and yeasty notes. It pours a clear golden amber with a fairly thick, if not too persistent, off-white head. Flavor has a malty core with subtle notes of apple and banana and a hoppy, but not bitter, undertone. Or is that coriander? I get a touch of that. Salt? Well, a teeny bit of salt. Salt in beer? Thats the most unheard-of thing Ive ever heard. Ha ha. (Or tasted.) OK, enough being a wisenheimer. Smooth texture has firm body and a fair bit of fizz, leaving a rather persistent tingle on the lips and tongue. I hope that Samuel Adams keeps us this series.

blipp (8634) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange gold with a dense off white head. Beautiful lacing. Wheaty malty base, with a citric hint and a very slightly salty finish. Subtle, balanced, and actually quite refreshing. Sam Adams has hits and misses, and continues growing bigger than anyone probably ever expected. But its nice to see them staying true to their craft brewing roots and brewing wacky styles like Gose.

SPDickerman (1233) - Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Pours hazy orange with a large sizzling off-white head. Smells of caramel and a touch of spice. Taste is sweet with a bit of pepper notes and a slight mineral taste. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Samuel Adams Verloren finishes with a bit of bitterness and mineral kick.

jandd1983 (4057) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUN 23, 2012
It poured a hazy orange/amber color with a white head. The aroma was notes of coriander, lemon peel and some pepper. The taste was wheat bread, pepper and a hint of light salt. A very good Gose.

RSRIZZO (1973) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2012
22oz bottle poured into an English Pint at 43. Color is a bright gold with a very slight haze. Carbonation is good producing a nice soft white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with honey and melon. It has a medium body with an almost creamy mouth feel. Flavor has a hint of peach, honey, lemon zest and white pepper. After taste has a mild sourness giving a nice dry feel as the honey lingers. Overall its a good brew, smooth, slightly sweet and just easy to drink.
