Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed in the tradition of the artisan brewers of Leipzig, this rare wheat beer is called Gose, pronounced 'gose-uh'. This style was extinct twice in Germany, but is today enjoying a revival in Leipzig and here in North America. Dry, tart, citrusy and deliciously refreshing on a hot summer’s day!

Thanks to FondueVoodoo for this one.

Poured from a 650ml bottle, bottled 09.13.13.

Body is a light yellow color, huge billowing head with excellent retention and clumps of foam on the sides. Aroma is a crisp, clear citrus. Flavor is more on the light side with lemon hints and mild tartness. Has a herb-like presence to it as well. Found it a bit tame compared to other versions i`ve had.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 3/10/13, big cheers towards Rutager for the bottle

A cloudy pale golden yellow with plenty of bubbles feeding a massive loose, soapy bone white head has great retention leaving lots of random lace

S coriander, clove, lemon, banana, dry cereals and a little bubblegum, I get just a little forest floor and wet leaves, not quite funk and the yeast plays a part

T I get the salt in the mouth, grainy, spiced but slightly less fruity notes but banana comes out a little stronger

M very foamy and airy, needs a few swirls to bring down the bubbles light bodied and crisp, cereal and spice lingers on the finish

O refreshing and easy to drink, I'm wishing I had a hot day to go with this one would work well under the sun

took 4 years to try a Gose and this is my second in as many months, strange that the only ones I've come across have been seasonal brews from BC and Alberta, I look forward to trying some German classics

4.23/5  rDev +7.9%

A: 1/2" white head over cloudy straw coloured liquid.

S: Lemon peel, salt, yeast and grass.

T: Coriander, wheat, slight taste of salt, sweet cereal grains, pears, apples, lemongrass and a hard water finish.

M: Medium viscosity and a medium level of carbonation.

O: The best of the style that I have had yet. I wouldn't exactly buy it again, but it is a great example of the style.

3.66/5  rDev -6.6%

Driftwood Brewery 'Gose-uh' @ 5.0% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $6.50

A-pour is a pale gold from the bottle to a hazy gold in the glass with a big white head that is leaving a big lace along the weizen glass

S-wow a lot of citrus(orange/melon rind) and other sweet fruits

T-sweet and tangy on the palate , tough swallow , eww

MF-big carbonation , medium to full bodied , the back of my mouth is not happy

Ov-first time trying the style 'Gose' , not sure if it will be my last , as there aren't alot of beers to compare it to or a style I would recommend , more like , it could/should become extinct again

2.93/5  rDev -25.3%

A: yellow (light coloured apple juice), almost transparent
S: nice full sourdough yeast; green apple or green pear;
T: juicy tang balanced with a distinct and noticeable "saltiness" (as per the style). Not crisp or even high sour notes. Like a salted lime or pineapple. I had a hard time describing the taste until I read about the style's common saltiness -- and boy is it there in this beer. And as it warms it becomes even more obvious and for me unpleasant.
M: full-bodied, low carbonation
O: I'd like to try this style again but from a different brewer just to see where it can go. Interesting but not really appealing.
