The seldom seen ancient German salted wheat beer has been brought from the dead by the County Boy Brewing team and gives Central Kentucky a taste that's rarely found outside of Leipzig.
But like many wheat beers, Ghost Gose pours with a milky yellow (canary) color that's even lighter than the typical hefeweizen. Topped with a creamy and airy white head, the beer retains and clings to the glass as well as any wheat beer. The beer seems built for warm weather.
Tart fruitiness rises to the nose in the shape of apples, berries, and light banana. Subtle clove and lemony character balance the fruit esters and keeps the beer smelling clean and refreshing. The grainy-sweet scent of bread (dough and yeast) provides the bridge that brings the beer together.
Light and soft malt sweetness is partially cracker-like, then tasting like fresh baking bread. The tartness of lemons and green apples leap from the malt support and gives the beer a zesty taste. Soft celery seed and clove notes balance the fruit and malt by only subtle margins. The beer is further rounded and perplexed by light salt additions that allow the beer to taste fuller and rounder, but not overtly salty.
Light in body, the beer is obviously made for high rate of consumption and maximizing refreshment. The early creaminess of wheat is shreded by the clean lactic tartness, seemingly of lemony fruit. As the beer closes, a wisp of wheat returns in mild bready fashion.
There's few beers that are truly as refreshing as lighter wheat beers. I appreciate the guys at Country Boy for sharing the taste with local craft beer enthusiasts.
