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.

4.1/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Very ornate 750ml swing top bottle, something akin to a bottle of fine cognac. The silk screened logo on the front with some stickers on the neck and over the swing top. No freshness mark or anything.

Appearance: Nice golden straw color. Slightly hazy from the yeast. A lively beer, with the carbonation exploding when it hits the glass. A white foam head forms easily with excellent retention and lacing. 4.6% ABV.

Aroma: Nice malty aroma with a touch of acidity and a very faint aroma of coriander.

Taste: The mild acidity comes up first, with the slightly sweet malt body shining through with a floral coriander flavor in the middle, before fading to a tart and dry finish. The salinity is perceptible but it lends more of a mineral and metallic quality rather than salty.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied beer. The heavy carbonation makes it quite refreshing.

Notes: I've been looking for the original for quite some time and here it is. The acidity is refreshing and the salinity adds an extra dimension of flavor. It is a great beer on a hot summer day.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

$ 3.49/11.2oz bottle at Heinen’s in Breckville, OH
Undated bottle at 40 degrees into Sam Adams lager glass
Aroma very faint lemon
Head small (2 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2mm ring
Lacing none
Body medium yellow, cloudy, some lumps
Flavor definitely salty, hint of lemon; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation

A very good example of the style – the murky appearance and lumps are somewhat off-putting, but the salty refreshingness is well worth it. Close your eyes.

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.
