A traditional German beer style that was all but extinct 30 years ago. An amazingly refreshing beer brewed with coriander and sea salt. The tart, dry finish combined with the hint of salt and citrus leaves your palate craving another sip.

On tap at Lost Nation Brewing in Morrisville, VT.

Pours a muddy, cloudy, straw-yellow color, with a very small head, and no real lacing.

Smells like strong citrus, with salt, lactic acid, and lemon all over the place.

This is probably the best Gose that I've ever had. As it warms up, the salt becomes more pronounced, but right after its poured, the salt is there, but not overwhelming. There is some medium-strength sourness, crisp and tart, lingering on the lips for a little bit, with an orange and grapefruit fruitiness as well.

This one is fairly light bodied, with a medium amount of carbonation, and a lingering acidity. Goes down really easily.

The hype for this one is deserved, just really tasty. Salty and sour actually does work well! (752 characters)

Served in a tulip.

Lacy and fizzy pale white head. Sticky white lace sits over a bright, golden body. 5

Saline, kind of a peachy profile I often get from goses, and it's wheaty and tart. 4.25

Delicious wheaty, slightly fruity and lemony before salt cuts in. A floral and peachy flavor pervade. Just excellent. 4.25

Tartness is there but not over the top and the saltiness is plenty noticeable and really dries the beer out. Light sweetness adds another element and the mouthfeel is refreshing but still sticks to the mouth and has some substance to it. 4.5

Awesome beer. Just awesome. (591 characters)

growler poured into taster - thanks alex

Hazy straw yellow pour, thin wispy layer of white foamy head dissolves quickly. Tart and briny on the nose, lemon peel with soft acidity. Snap of soft tartness and acidity up front on the tongue. Hints of citrus and lemon with a salty tang. Straw and hay, lightly funky. Lighter body, bubbly and refreshing on the tongue.

This was my first Lost Nation beer and I was definitely impressed. I'm excited to see more breweries producing this style, which is particularly refreshing on a warm, breezy summer evening. (555 characters)

Appearance: 3/4 inch head, high carbonation, gold yellow in color, clear

Smell: salt and wheat

Taste: big wheat, peach, orange, and salt

Mouthfeel: light body, sweet with prickly saltiness, medium-high carbonation

Overall: A nice and peachy example of the style. Never had a gose like this. Tastes like a Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat with a gose's saltiness. Would definitely get this again. (393 characters)

On tap at the brewery.

A: Straw colored with a slight haze. Head is thin but it sticks around.

S: Toasty malt and coriander, with a very faint funky edge.

T: Salt is right up front, blends well with the coriander and malts. I'd like a little more sourness but it tastes great.

M: Full and satisfying for a low ABV beer (the salt?). No astringency or other defects.

O: Gose seems to be the flavor of the month in VT right now; a very good example. (451 characters)
