I am anything but an expert on Gose. In addition to Verloren, I have only had the Leipziger Gose that is more or less the standard for the style (or so I've been led to think). So in reviewing this, I have only the one other beer to offer up as comparison.

What struck me when I drank my first Gose (the Leipziger), is that I was drinking a thoroughly unique beer style. It was light, refreshing, fruity, and a bit sour.

However, when I drink Verloren, I am struck with none of those things. The beer is a little heavy, and actually seems a little higher than the listed 6% listed ABV. There is some mild fruitiness in the mouth, but it really just serves to make the beer a little cloying. And it really wasn't terribly refreshing either.

That said, Verloren isn't a bad beer. It's quite malty and earthy, grass and plum flavors, and it pours a lovely amber with a full head. The salt is definitely present in the flavor, which lends a mineral nature to the beer.

Overall not something I would seek out again, but I commend Sam Adams for giving it a try.
