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.

Citrus, herbal, with a little spice
decent session beer that pairs well with curry.

Intriguing beer. Purchased in MA as imported from the former DDR - now Germany. Well worth a try! Would probably fit in as a thirst quencher in the summer!

Pours an opaque deep straw producing barely 1.5 fingers of shortlived, foamy, white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma has a low but nice wheat profile & I detect what I would call pilsner malts. It is crisp, clean & dry with hints of tart fruit & brine (which the brewery says should be be below what humans can distinguish as salt). Taste opens with lactic acid sourness, wheat & a hint of coriander & finishes peppery, clean, crisp, dry with faint salinity (again) & tart fruit. Aftertaste is salty wheat, coriander with briney lemon, lime & tart green apple. Easier to drink than the American versions I have tried due to less lactic acid sourness & salt. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation that rapidly dissipates as the brew warms, lightly astringent, prickly & dry.

Pours a straw yellow with lively looking carbonation, small head and minimal lace. Aroma first hits you with salty tones but becomes more malty as it warms. I dug the taste; not too salty or sour, hint of lemon and enough of a malty backbone to make it drinkable. Good feel; light and refreshing. Great for a hot day. The first time I tried Gose I poured it down the drain. This one, my 2nd one, I liked. Either it is becoming an acquired taste or I simply like this one better.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy straw/gold with lots of carbonation and a big white head. Sediment was noticeable at bottom of the bottle.

Aroma: Smells of spices, citrus, a little pepper and some wheat toast.

Taste: Tasty beer. It has a somewhat subtle flavor, with spices and salt hitting the taste buds first followed by oranges, lemons and a touch of that wheat toast note that was present in the nose.

Mouthfeel: It's very soft on the palate. Easy drinking and approachable. Almost summery.

Overall: Really enjoyed this. Makes me want to try more of the style. Five bucks per bottle is a little steep, but I'd surely have it again.
