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.

I picked this up at Oliver's in Albany, enjoyed from the can in a cervoise chilled.

The color is pale golden with haze and white head that rises and falls to a ring of beading with spotty lace. The smell has lemon and zest odor with light wheat which has a light toasted and slight salty hint with mineral and light earthy aroma. The feel is very good with moderately light body and lots of sour in the feel with medium high carbonation and citrus tanginess with saltiness not out of balance and linger tart texure that leaves the palate dry.

The flavor is very citrus and tangy with zesty bright wheat and fruity yeast w/ slight salted lemon aspect with mild wheat flavor which is dominated by the sour elements from the yeast. There is also an earthy quality toward the end with more sour and salt lingering after the swallow. Overall this is great a lot more sour than traditional versions but a solid take on the style and refreshing - very good worthy of a try if you like sour wheats.

Poured from a can into a snifter, the beer is a hazy, pale, yellow-maize coloring with a halo of white filmy head and a slow flow of carbonation throughout. Aromas of tangy sweet white grapes, salt, toasted grains, subtle buttery notes, and white wine characteristics. Flavors are crisp and tart forward, with a blast of sour right behind. White grapes, sea salt, and tannins on a subtle toast backbone. The body is light, but full at the same time. Tart and salty aftertaste, which dries you out slightly, begging you to drink more. Dry, clean, crisp finish. Unbelievable drinkability on this beer. Fantastic!
