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.

4.22/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Cloudy goldenrod color with substantial head and lacing. This is one chunky beer! Bits and pieces of sediment linger, even after I swirl my glass lightly.

Smell: Salty and sour, with lots of yeast.

Taste: Initially, the taste is salty, mildly spicy, and slightly sour. Sourness is less than the aroma indicates, however. On the finish, dark fruits come out, probably plums like the bottle indicates. This is kind of like what a hefeweizen might taste like if it had salt and a little bit of dark fruits instead of the banana taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with a slight ping from the salt/spices.

Drinkability: Interesting enough that I wish I had another bottle, but I don't think I'd drink this all night.

Notes: Naturally, this was my first review of a Gose. I was pleased with this beer because I appreciate wheat beers when they are well-made. However, it is less amazing than the rarity of this style might lead one to believe. That said, I'd love to see more German brewers start brewing Gose beers again, as well as get some American interpretations out there. As far as rare styles go, it's rather mundane, but if Gose was a more common style, I'd choose this when I felt like a light wheat beer but not a hefeweizen.

3.08/5  rDev -21%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

11.2 oz bottle with no freshness date poured into a wine glass. 4.6% ABV

Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color with 1 finger of a white head that dissipates to a thin wispy coating and collar.

Smell: Bread, wheat, apple and a weird grainy funkiness (not a good funkiness)

Taste: Lightly sweet upfront with an extremely mild sourness. Flavors are lemon, wheat and mild spice. Slight saltiness comes through in the finish and aftertaste. Flavors are really weak.

Mouthfeel: LIght medium bodied and crisp with medium carbonation. No alcohol detectable.

Overall: Pretty disappointed in this one. An odd aroma and weak flavor profile make this one I won't likely revisit.. Maybe this was a bad/old bottle, but without knowing for sure, I'd have to recommend avoiding this one.
