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.

750ml bottle thanks to alpar, poured a cloudy golden yellow color, aromas oof light barnyard and salt. Flavors of corriander, light sour wheat, and salt. The salt was not overpowering at first but when I got 2/3rds ddone with the bottle, it became more salty and it made me want more. Solid brew, and thanks for the trade Alex.

People hate on this brew and I went into skeptical based on reviews but I enjoyed my pour. I did detect some salt but it wasnt as if I was drinking deer lick... Nice attempt at the unorthodox style. Somewhat sour, but it has a nice clean bite at the end, I appreciate.

Bottle pours cloudy pale yellow with foamy white head. Unpleasant aroma of barnyard manure with sour lactic elements. Afraid to taste it after the aroma but the flavor was surprisingly delicate with light fruits, yeast and spices. Finish salty. No alcohol apparent. Palate light syrup. Not for me but glad I tried it.

Bottle sample @ Sour & Bitter Dinner, Copenhagen. My first gose! I didnt realize until I read the description here on Ratebeer what it actually was. :-) Pours a slightly hazy golden orange body with a big white cloudy head. Nose is mineral salts, soap, hints of grass, herbs, caramel and grains. Interesting indeed. Taste is slightly salty grainy tones, pale malts, minerals and citric hints. Some herbal undertones far in the back. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Subtle, original and very interesting. Glad to have tried this, will be looking out for more gose from now on. Hell, I might even try to brew one! :-)

Pours a hazy gold with a cloud like two finger head that stays around leaving great lacing. Aroma is funky with an off note, maybe the truffle salt. Taste is great like a funkier gose, salt isnt as present as in other goses Ive had. Smooth, and easy to drink Not bad at all, I would have this again

Bottle sample at Sour&Bitter 2012 Copenhagen. Deep golden in the glass, small head. Strange sweet-spicy aroma. Starts mild, quite spicy, more and more dry. A bit fruity like apricot. Dry finish. Strange beer!
