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

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
