Notes/Commercial Description:
This original Leipzig beer specialty lends us the name for our brewery. Gose is a regional beer specialty that was brought to Saxony-Anhalt in the year 1738. Originally Gose comes from Goslar, a small town in Lower Saxony, and the river “Gose” in this town. This beer specialty has a refreshing, slightly sour taste and is ideal for quenching your thirst. Gose is brewed with the additional ingredients lactic acid, cilantro, and salt. Gose is a top-fermented beer with 4.5% ABV and 10.8% wort. You can enjoy it in different variations.

No date on the bottle, although I've had it well over a year. I'm thinking it's about two years old. The bottle I have is the "spezialitat" which has a wide base and long neck.

Appearance: The beer has a thin white head that goes away fast leaving no lacing. The body is a golden orange color that is slightly hazy.

Aroma: I get a sweet coriander aroma. It's very prominent, especially for being collared so long.

Taste: It has a very light wheat flavor and a hint of coriander. It's very mellow .

Mouthfeel: There is a slight tartness around the edge but not strong. The beer is light all-around.

Overall: It's a great beer. I wasn't getting a whole lot of wheat flavor our sourness from the beer, but it was very enjoyable. It's a nice light drink that could be enjoyed with about anything. I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't tried a Gose (and those who have) who enjoy coriander spiced witbiers. I would buy it again.

A: Pours a hazed golden/yellow color. At first a pillowing white head rises to about two fingers, then fizzles out. Thin, film like lace.
S: Earthy a musty like up front. Tangy orange and lemon aromas, with a spicy finish.
T: Up front is just ever so slightly tart and acidic. That quickly gives way an earthy character. Juicy, and sweet fruits like orange and lemon, and again finishes with a bit of peppery spice.
M/D: A light body with a soft and smooth feel. Just slightly prickly carbonation. Down in big gulps, wait, where to the liquid go. Gone in a second, and I wish I picked up a few more.

I'm a fan. Not to many true German Gose's available, and this seems to fit the bill from the handful of others I have had. It is soft and subtle, but really enjoyable.

.5L bottle poured into a craft tumbler.

A- Hazy, light golden yellow. Some white-ish highlights. Almost Wit-like in appearance. Head is white and solid, but doesn't retain for long.

S- Very complex. Lacto gives off the tangy fruity aroma. Coriander adds depth with a spicy earthy aroma. The malt character gives off a nice baked bread smell.

T- Sweet, some fruit, and some spice. Not as tart as I thought it would be.

M- Very sweet. Just a slight tartness. The finish is pretty wet, but this is where I detect the salt, with a very slight dry feeling.

O- Very interesting flavors come together here. Very delicious.

Pours out a hazy gold. White head. Smells of crackery wheat and bright coriander. Taste is crisp, acidic, citric with fruitiness from the coriander. Salt is very delicate. Much more subtle than US versions. Mouthfeel is smooth with mild prickling carbonation. Awesome beer. Wish this were in 6 packs.
