The Bruery Provisions Series: Salt of the Earth

RATINGS: 119   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.2/5   EST. CALORIES: 150   ABV: 5%
Salt of the Earth is our play on a gose. Not to be confused with a gueze, the gose style originated in Leipzig, Germany. It is a wheat beer traditionally brewed with salt and coriander as well as lactic bacteria. Clearly not following the Reinheitsgebot, we figured wed knock it up a level by using an addition of truffle salt in our gose, adding an earthy and funky element to the aroma and flavor certain to tantalize all of the foodies out there.

750 mL bottle that kegbear gave me instead of pouring down the drain. aroma is the beach and the taste kind of is what you get up your nose after you have been summersaulted around by a gigantic wave at the seashore. Leaves an odd salty after taste in ones mouth. Not good

Backlog review, bottle tasted 05/09/2011. Pours a dull golden color, ample frothy head. Aroma is seawater, soft herbal spice, floral hops. Taste follows the nose- light floral hops, reminiscent of a Belgian IPA, mild bitterness with a salty twinge. Light body. Decent, nice to drink with food.

750 ml bottle acquired a long time ago from I have no idea know. Opened at our Pre-TG KB Bottle Fun in Heykevins driveway. Cool. Pours a hazy dulled golden hue, a touch of darkness in the body, mellow glow with a big cakey bright white head atop, stays large and in charge, ok lacing. Aromas are gentle salt, earthy quality and mellow tartness, lemon and gentle truffle. Bready malts, good salt, tart lemon. Really quite potent. Tangy, tart, and lively on the nose. Bready, straw, and dry with potent tartness. Initial turns the corner, a touch thicker into heavier end of medium bodied. Salty, bready, straw. Truffle comes through a bit more, a mellow tartness. Earth, salty and truffle elements. Bready, straw, and some dough fluffy qualities in the middle. Backend is a bit more bready, touches of fruit, lemon, faint banana. A bit dry, earthy truffle, salt and bready malt, flaked wheat, and straw. Nose really is potent, flavors are a bit odd, unique. Doesnt necessarily come on for me up front, backend a bit more interesting.

Pours a slightly roped golden color with a fizzy thick three finger foam. The nose is weird....spray paint, new sneakers and a bit of yeasty esters. On the palate its worse than it smells... Like a skunk bottle of bud light aged in a fungus infested bowling shoe that has been sprayed with deodorizer.... Man I hope people dont think this is what a gose should taste like... Damn you Dave for giving me this!

Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Light airy and semi dry palate. Not really sure what this beer is supposed to be! A lot of minerals with citrus orange from the coriander I think. Mild off beat bitterness from the truffle salt possibly. Semi soft and dry finish. Okay - a bit non descript.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma is herbal, slightly acidic, grassy, doughy malts, light citrus and earthy. The flavor has a moderate saltiness, herbal, coriander, grassy, doughy malts, crackers, and earthy. Thinner; still an interesting beer to try.

Had this one ages ago - had to dig through scraps of paper to find the notes on this one, which werent very good to be honest. Not a lot of salt noticeable in this one, but eh - it was good anyway. Touch of tart notes, yeast, light stone fruits, citrus character to it. Very enjoyable.

14 sept 3012, bottle. Pale yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is gooseberries, faint sour aroma, hints of honey, and some saison notes. Thin body and slightly fizzy. Taste is lemoncello, a weird, soft salt component. Unusual. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A-- Poured a light straw color with a massive 3 finger bright white head. Left lacing all over the glass. Nice looking beer. S-- Coriander, bread, black pepper, kosher salt and truffle in the nose. T-- touches of sourness in the taste but otherwise coriander and stale bread. M-- Lighter feel and medium carbonation. I liked the salted cracker most of all in this. Really thought a basic slightly sour wheat until the finish and got a salted cracker in the end. Nice little bonus. O-- Refreshing beer. Nothing over the top but just well made and the touches of truffle and salt made this quite nice.
