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.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a teku. This was canned on 02/28/14, so a bit under 3 months ago.

Appearance: Pours gold/light amber and leaves a couple fingers of fluffy white head that lingers around for a while, leaving full lacing.

Smell: Light peppery citrus, salt, grapes, wheat, light coriander.

Taste: Matches the nose pretty well. Green apple, salt, lemon zest, pepper, citrus, coriander.

Mouth-feel: Medium carbonation with a medium, salty body. Interesting feel, fits the style well.

Overall: A very different, interesting beer. Fairly refreshing and very well balanced, this was definitely well brewed. Light sour tones with a generally light flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: a mix between a light straw color and a milky white liquid, two fingers of a white head and lots off bubbles, quickly fades to nothing. completely opaque

Smell: tart lacto bacteria. sour green apple skins, wheaty base.

Taste: opens with sour green apple skins, wheat, coriander and a little saltiness at the end.

Mouthfeel: light and refreshing. just a slight tart vinegariness remains.

Overall: Not too familiar with the style but this reminds me a lot of a berliner weisse. the salt and coriander adds a nice touch to the refreshing and sour brew.
