This is our interpretation of Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), a traditional German-style sour wheat beer brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback.

Pours a slightly murky golden amber color with a fluffy white head. The head dissipates almost immediately and leaves no lacing on the glass. The aroma is excellent, filled with citrus fruit, coriander spice, and sea salt. The taste follows suit but lactic sourness dominates. Overall, it's light bodied, very dry and refreshing.

I haven't had many beers in this style to compare this one with, but if you put this side by side with Anderson Valley's The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose, I don't think I would be able to tell the difference. Made an excellent pairing with a Thai yellow curry dish. The citrus in the beer really goes nicely with the bright flavors of the curry and the sourness cuts right through the spice.

Super flavorful and I didn't find it overly salty as is a turnoff for me in some Goses. Great beer!

This was the second gose I've tried and arguably my favorite. I loved the sour notes and how clean and refreshing this beer was!

Light and crisp in nature, if you are a fan of tasty sours, this one will do you right! at 4% abv, you can easily have a six pack or two...

12oz can served in a pilsener glass (thanks Joe!). Pours a dull, milky yellow with a sizzling quarter inch bright white head the immediately disperses. Nose expresses citric acid, a light yeasty quality and a hint of brine. Taste follows nose - pleasantly tart, citrusy and salty. Mouthfeel is light in body with a lively, effervescent carbonation and a mild acidity that lightly stimulates the salivary glands. Probably only the third Gose I've ever tried. Reminds me of a salty Belinner-Weisse. Very refreshing - I'd love to have access to this during the warm weather.

Cloudy yellow. Tart and salty, its tastes puts it generally into the category of the new style tart saisons. Really well done.
