Schell's Goosetown is our interpretation of a traditional, German-style Gose. The beer pours clear, golden orange in color, with a thick white foam head. It has a bright lemon zest and coriander aroma with a slight saltiness reminiscent of a cool ocean breeze. A refreshingly light and citrusy tartness greets your palate, backed by a bready, wheat malt character and a touch of coriander spice. Lighter bodied, yet full flavored with a lively carbonation that gives the beer a crisp, dry finish. A uniquely refreshing session beer, perfectly suited for a warm summer day from the August Schell Brewing Company.

From Schell's:

We are excited to announce our new seasonal beer - Schell’s Goosetown available from April through September! Schell’s Goosetown is named after a neighborhood located across the tracks and down by the Minnesota River in New Ulm, where mostly Catholic German-Bohemian immigrants began settling in the late 1800s. These immigrants kept and raised gaggles of geese, which wandered freely throughout the neighborhood and fed along the banks of the river.

Yet another new offering from Schell's. So fun having these guys whipping up rare styles of beer that are not limited releases. Kudos!

Has the appearance of a pilsner. Pale straw yellow with a thin white head.

The nose is wheaty, straw, light earthy and grassy hops.

Very light and extremely refreshing flavor. Lightly wheaty and grainy with a touch of grassy hops, getting hints of the coriander and the salt is noticeable throughout and more so in the finish. A light aftertaste of grain, grass and salt. Very clean.

Carbonation is low and soft. The palate is left dried out in large part to the salt I would guess and the body is light.

Only the second gose I have ever had and I like this one much better than the first one I tried. Extremely refreshing beer that would absolutely be sessionable especially in the middle of a humid MN summer. My favorite part of the the beer is the mild salt character. Really different and adds to the refreshment. Very fun beer to try.
