COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle thanks to Owen. Pours a light straw with brilliant white head. Aromas of doughy yeast, a little wheat, coriander, pretzels and a little sourness. Whats not to like. Flavours are a little more straightforward. Fairly typical wheat beer with some sourness and a little salt on the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Really interesting.

bottle... murky dark straw, bright white head, a bit too bubbly, nice retention... the nose is dominated by the truffle salt, I think they used the right amount to not overpower but any amount of truffle is overpowering so its a bit tough to get past all the truffle, lacks restraint and balance... the taste is shockingly boring, light truffle salt mixed with herbs but then the finish is dead, really watery hurts as well... I thought this was an automatic fail, not as bad as I imagined but still nothing to seek out

what a treat, always have enjoyed a Gose and with it being 95 outside- perfect! .. . Pours a deep gold, very good foam and lacing .. . such an interesting blend of flavours from dough, light herbal notes, sea salt and pretzel with a big pure truffle presence, so unique.. quite a dry beer, not as refreshing as you would expect but amazingly fun and unique- this is just another reason why i love craft beers .. .
Well, hes kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace accidentally with repeatedly and replace dog with son.

On tap @ The Bruery Provisions Store. Clear pale yellow pour with a solid finger of fluffy white head. Very earthy and spicy aroma with some barnyard funk. Quite unique in both the nose and flavor - the salt started to come through the more I drank it. Almost savory in a strange way. One of the dryest beers Ive ever had.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Bottle from our Reserve Society membership. Slightly hazy yellow pour and an aroma of lemon/salt. Flavor is nice light mellow lemon, herbs and a little more salt. Although theres nothing about this beer that is over the top, it really stuck out as a great beer for pairing with food during summer BBQs. Im glad I have 1 extra bottle of this one.

(Draught at the Provisions store). Pours slight hazy golden color with creamy white head. Very active carbonation. Aroma is salt and something....old? Very pungent. IKve never smelled smelling salt, but this could work. Really pungent. Taste is sweet and salty. Its my first Gose or Gose-like beer so Im not sure what to expect but this is tough to drink for me. Medium bodied. Now, Ive figured out some of the flavor-some really cheap watered down red wine. Not a fan at all.

Pours out of bottle slightly hazy yellow with white head, aroma has notes of slight funk, amazing note of truffles and the salt peeks through, spice notes as well as a nice bread and fruity character. Taste is slightly funky, some lemon, biscuit, earth and spice notes, touch of salty funk, finishing dry. Interesting!

Not all that salty, which is odd. Also not very lactic. But an interesting mix of spices and a strong coriander note make this, like Charley observed, a sort of savory wit. Good stuff. Thanks Zack!
