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.

Cloudy straw body with very little initial head that fades to nothingness. Can't say it is a very attractive beer but on par for most sours.

Sour mash that has a distinct apple and lemon fruitiness to it. Noticeable amounts of coriander and complex spice over the barely detectable grains. Some must and dough in there. I enjoy that the aroma is not overly grainy.

Wow what a trip, straw and sourdough grains are very tightly integrated with a lemon and dampered lime and apple fruit and lactic tartness. A dusting of mustiness and softening meringue. The sea salt balance is absolutely perfect adding an element of complexity that also reduces tartness.

Not grainy at all is my take from this, medium body and very well balanced. Carbonation is active but not overbearing. I would prefer that this be a bit more dry since the tartness is smoothed over. Very drinkable.

Gone too soon, a refreshing and balanced gose that doesn't come off as grainy or watery. Probably the best version of this style currently available in the states.
