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.

Bottled. A hazy yellow beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of truffel, malt, vinegar, and malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of salt, combined with medium notes of wood, vanilla, truffel, spices, yeast, and malt, leading to a dry salty finish. Interesting stuff!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of JohnC. Pours a hazy yellow with a creamy and lacing white head. An odd cheesy aroma t first - then comes the coriander. Very light body, a slightly tart fruitiness, very coriandery and fruity. I guess I can feel a slight salty edge, but the beer is far from salty. No bitterness. 220312

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.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
A: The pour is a slightly clouded yellow/straw color with a finger of white head. S: The earthiness of the truffle salt is immediately evident. This gives the beer a big mushroom quality, though the saltiness is somewhat subdued. A touch of acidity from the acidulated malts used and some nice floral hops. There is a lot going on here. T: More salt flavor than I had expected given the nose, but its not over done. Plenty of mushroom and truffle flavor and a distinct earthiness--somewhat musty, even. Slightly bitter with a touch of black pepper and floral hops. The wheat and bread flavor is really the base flavor, though. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: One of only a few of the different examples of Gose Ive tried or even seen, but I like this one a fair amount. Its definitely different, but I think a good beer.
