Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Sampled from a 12oz can purchased at Bierkraft in Brooklyn, NY.

A - Yellow and hazy with a moderate white head. There's a strong initial evacuation of bubbles then it settles down nicely.

S - Lemony and tart, fresh cut grass.

T - A firm tartness that hits hard and fades gradually. Nice wheat flavors as well. Smooth and refreshing.

M - Between the carbonation releasing and the sour bite, it hits your tongue like a tiny bolt of lightening. Very invigorating.

O - I haven't had a traditional Gose so I don't have any basis for judging their interpretation but I like this beer.

Big thanks to dogdoc for sending this can! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a CCB pint glass.

A: Very hazy - almost to the point of opacity - dark, dull yellow. Thin white head, low visible carbonation.

S: Tart, lactic and acidic, lemon, wheat, grass, mild funk and sulfur.

T: Tart, wheat with just a bit of grainy character, mild salinity and sulfur for style, lactic, lemon and orange citrus, wet hay and barnyard. After the swallow, there's some fading tartness and mild graininess.

M: Light bubbly body (despite the appearance), and no alcohol to speak of.

O: This is really, really tasty. It takes the degree of haziness beyond the level of what the available guidelines suggest in my opinion. But outside of that, it's extremely well-done. Recommended for everyone to try - a good example of a polarizing style.
