Samuel Adams continues to expand their Small Batch Series in 2012. On the schedule is Verloren, and gose. There aren’t a lot of U.S. brewers making a gose, especially a brewery as large as Boston Beer. That’s probably why they dubbed it “Verloren” or “lost” beer . (It’s 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, it’s 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 that’s full of flavors to discover. Batch #1

Bottle. Pours a dark hazy copper color with a small white head. Nose is peppery with other spices. Palate is quite tingly but has a decent thickness. Flavors of pepper, light sour fruit notes, a weird touch of salt that drys the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

March 18th, 2015 - Samuel Adams makes a gose? That's enough to pique my interest. Deep auburn, and with a wavy, smooth head, it certainly doesn't look like much of a gose, but the nose is a little closer to the mark, with a bright wheat beer style flavor that leans heavy on the lemon and candied fruit. And the flavor is much the same, though leaves a deep impression. Bright and acidic, it awakens the tongue with a firm shock, and follows with some complex notes. It begins with a wheat flavor, turning floral in the center with lots of tangerine jam notes, before ending with a clean, crisp lemon aftertaste. I found the circuit of flavors both pleasant and curious. The coriander in the recipe is a bit tricky, and hard to pinpoint. It could be complementing the lemon, but it's hard for me to say.

Bomber bottle. Poured a hazy amber color with a medium sized head. Citrus, some fruits, herbal, and maybe some saltiness.

16.9 ounce bottle. Hazy copper color. Firm creamy beige head with nice clinging lace. Sweet malty nose has hints of coriander and white toast. Interesting subtle sweet malt flavor upfront. Notes of caramel, butter and coriander spice. Some saltiness and grassy hops in finish. Different.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom St. Mathews. Hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is light tart, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is mineral water and some tartness.

Bottle. Nose is corn and weirdly Belgian. Maybe butter. Diacetyl? Perfume. Taste is weird. Not lacto. Just no. Total dump.

Very disappointed with this one. Taste is very malty with no bitterness and only the smallest trace of sour. A fair bit of salt to be sure, but its the malts that dominate. Also the palate is rather weak and watery. perhaps I have an old bottle?

Pours deeper gold with a very small white head. Aroma is citrus and brine. Taste is tart and salty with a touch of sweetness on the finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a smooth texture. Overall this was decent.

BrewBoxer (2672) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Bottle at Ulysses NYC. Pours a dark brown color with a head that comes and goes. Not as tart as I'd expect and darker. A good beer for people not into the Puckery sourness

Rated based on notes taken 25 May 2012 -- An okay beer, my first ever gose and I don’t think I really knew what to think about it. Would like to try again sometime for a re-rate.

Beerdedone (3521) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden orange with a thin white head. aroma of coriander, lemon, caramel, bread and salt. Flavor of wheat, coriander, bread, lemon, subtle caramel and some saltiness.
