Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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!

3.8/5  rDev -3.6%

Serving: 650 mL bottle poured into a 0.3 L tulip glass (bottle "06.23.14").

Appearance: Cloudy, pale straw yellow color with billowing, bubbly white head (Champagne-like). Dense lacing coats the glass.

Smell: Light, clean malt (crackers), bright citrus (lemon), yeast and slight funk.

Taste: Wheat and yeast with banana. Spice and savory salt come to the forefront as it warms. Salt and tartness hints towards lemon-lime Gatorade at times. Gentle bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with saltiness adding to fullness of body; lively carbonation.

Overall: A crisp, tart and refreshing brew with some nice funk and spice notes.

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
