Well damnit if I’m not glad I bought this last bottle at Eagle Provisions when it was there/

Pours a clouded amber gold. Nose is yeasty and citrus. Flavor is yeasty, slightly wheat-y and leaves a long citric flavor on the tongue. It seems like a cross between a Belgian brew and a German. Quite interesting really. Definite spice influence, though I have to admit that my palate for spices is immature, so I can’t pick them out as I should be able to. On the mouth it is low in carbonation but slightly thick in ingredients. Extremely drinkable. Like I said, this was the last bottle to be had where I bought it. If you see it, go for it.

This is pretty crazy beer, I've had Scott Smith's Here it Gose Again...East End brewed gose. This will be my first German brewed authentic version, pours a deep yellow orange golden cloudy color with a bright white head. Label calls it a beer brewed with coriander and salt. Fine lacing left behind between sips beautiful looking brew. Aroma at first was bit sulfurous with a brisk wind of sea salt and lemon peel citrus blends with coriander spice. Flavor is impressive, really unique great tasting beer I'm glad I finally gave this a try. Every time I had seen it before it was in a crazy shaped flip top bottle with a pretty high price tag. This 11.2 oz brown bottle for 3 something a bottle seemed much more fair for never having a real version of this stuff. Spicy coriander flows with tart lemon flavor perfect German wheat beer with a hint of salt, not salty you can more or less get the mineral aspect. Mouthfeel is light bodied super effervescent CO2 on the high end. Really interesting unique beer that I will be revisiting in the future...excellent stuff.

11.2 oz. bottle, my 1st Gose thanks to Liquid Solutions,

A: Pours a relatively clear yellow with a nice colour, big puffy white head at first that dies down pretty quickly.

S: Lemon juice and lactic acid.

T: Interesting flavour, it tastes a lot like a Berliner Weisse mixed with salt. The salt is evident, but it doesn't take over the brew. Full lemon and light orange are present as well.

M: Light and fizzy carbonation, but has a nice body from the acidity.

D: A unique brew, I'm glad I finally got to try something from this style. Pricey, but worth a go.

Just a slight cap of foam in the tulip. Hazy, dull golden color. Tart and reminds me of a Berliner Weissbier. The sharp taste fades a little into some mellower malt. A hint of fruit like pears and a very tart apple. Touch of hoppy bitterness. Like it was carefully fermented past any hint of residual sugar to a dose of vinegar. Rather clean, unfunky taste without any off flavors. Nose is slight beer, slight vinegar. Overall effect is not very drinkable but might be fine with sweet sausage and peppers.

Well, the mystery is whether this is a better than average Gose. I'm definitely on the lookout for some domestic versions of this wild style.

an interesting article. pours hazy pale yellow with a lazy white head. the nose is heavy on the wheat malt, and the corriander seed is more prominent than the salt. almost herbal, or indian, rather than german. flavor is good, salt is much less than the other gose versions ive had, just subtle in the finish. the corriander and the wheat are the most dominant flavors. its spicy and yeasty and refreshing and drinkable. i dont love it, think it could use a little more body and perhaps even some more hops. an american gose, all hoppy and salty might be an interesting beer. who knows, for now, this is pretty tasty and affordable.

Served on-draught at Bayrischer Bahnhof. Reviewed from notes taken in June 2011.

A: Pours a three finger head of slight (but nice) cream, average retention, and white colour. Colour is a hazy cloudy nontransparent orange-dirty brown colour. Appealing. A bit reminiscient of a hefeweizen, but "dirtier".

Sm: Hints of dirty esters. Sourness; maybe funk. Light and musty. Not great.

T: Souring estery hop climax. The open and body are comprised primarily of merely clean barley. The pinnacle is the souring hop climax; the finish carries those that linger. Simple, but a welcome change from mindless German pilseners. It's not quite balanced, but the climax is adequately emphasized.

Mf: Smooth and wet, complementing the sourness. A bit too wet, actually. Leaves a dry aftereffect that I'm not too fond of. Doesn't quite match the flavours of the body.

Dr: I don't really know the style well (this is me first beer in the style), but the emphasis seems to be on adequate presentation of the sourness. Belgian sours sure do this better, and this feels simple in comparison. I look forward to trying more beers in the style. Its low ABV never shows, not that you'd expect it to.

This is a 500 mL bottle of Gose served in an Ommegang Witte glass. The ale is cold.

Appearance: The ale has a deep golden yellow color with a small ring of head.

Smell: The ale has a light spice aroma that complements a strong malt base.

Taste: The ale has a bicuity malt sweetness that is balanced by spices. The coriander is noticeable, the salt is not here.

Mouthfeel: The spices are subdued, allowing the malt to shine with just a hint of help.

Drinkability: A low abv and firm spicy flavor make this beer a winner.

1 pint .9 fl oz served in a pilsner glass

A-crystal clear orange golden color with a big billowy off-white head and lots of strong carbonation

S- bready aroma with hits of honey and coriander and pils malt. Some very faint plastic or chemical hints.

T- sweet light maltyness with a spicy clove aftertaste with a hint of banana/wheat. A slight saltwater taste hangs in the back of my throat, but it is more pleasant that painful. No hop presents in any part of the tasting.

M- Thick mouth with light carbonated mouthfeel

D- This is a very unique smooth beer. It has a good pale malt taste with a nice spicy finish. Very nice for a summer quafting beer. Nothing to shock the tastebuds but a good solid beer.

My very first Gose! Terribly exciting, even though I don't have anything to compare it against. Purchased from Healthy Spirits in San Francisco, where Dave was quite excited about it. Brought back to Sydney to share with @LaitueGonflable.

Pours a hazed lemony colour, rather like a hefeweizen, but probably lighter than the usual German hef. Fine white head that stays as a clean and clinging film to the top of the glass. Minimal body and lacing, but it looks tasty.

Nose is crisp and lightly spicy, giving a slight acidic resonance to everything else. Characters of olives, seaweed, sawdust, green apple peel and even a touch of noble hops (imagine that!). Perhaps not as weird as it might have been on the nose (indeed, there's a touch of the Kristalweizen to it), but solid enough.

Taste is more odd, with a crisp acidity and light body that immediately reminds me of a Berliner Weisse. While it doesn't have the true funky finish, or the depth of sourness, it has the very crisp lightness. Salt comes forward on the back, giving a weird way to wash out the palate. Not a huge amount of character overall, but I like that even though it's light, the characters it has are unusual.

A very dry but crisp and unusual beer. Surprisingly moreish.

Pours a hazy orange colored brew.

Smell is light sweet wheat malt and citrus. There are some other fruity scents here but they are all jumbled together in a juicy fruit type of scent. Odors of tea are in here too. Can't smell any salt but I live 5 miles from the ocean and I am sure it is a scent I tune out without thinking about it. Banana and clove scents show up after a bit like a Hefe weizen.

Taste is fruity and mild up front with mild wheat malt and banana bread to start. Taste gets tart after a bit. Low but detectable hop bittering in the finish. Very estery but more like the British ale version than the German wheat beer version. Lots of roasted marshmallow flavor.

Mouthfeel is good.

Very drinkable brew, I can't understand why it isn't made by more breweries. Hard to describe, think of wheat beer Gatorade. I would consider this for everyday use if only an American brewery made it. Alaskan brewing has shown mastery at making Altbier maybe they should try Gose?

Thanks goes out to tai4ji2x and ybnorml for this brew.

Poured into a chalice a very nice hazy golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little white head, with some sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some yeast, slight soury. The taste is pretty nice, better than I expected, malty, with some yeast, tangy, slight lemon/grapefruit. Medium body. Drinkable, this is a nice one, glad to have the bigger bottle of this brew still left.

From notes:

Pours a murky, golden yellowish mustard brown color with a one finger foam white head. Decent retention, fading into a thin lasting ring. Minimal spots of lacing.

The aroma of this beer has quite a bit going on. Hints of citrus peel, wheat, bread, spice, earthy and lemon juice.

Soft carbonation with sweet citrus flavor up front followed by a spicy and earthy presence mid palate and an odd salty dry finish. Hints of lemon zest, clove, salt and slight hops.

My recent willingness to depart from The CANQuest (TM) to try some bottled beers for a while has led me to this beer, which I had frankly wanted to try for some time. Prosit!

From the bottle: "Leipziger Gose is unfiltered and bottle-conditioned. Its flavor and taste profile are quite complex with pleasant notes of coriander on the palate. The salt level is calculated to be present and tangible but just below the level at which humans can actually "taste" salt. The Gose style is named after the town of "Goslar," the historic origin of the style. Likewise, Goslar is named after the river "Gose."

Friends, I hate to break it to yinz, but thanks to so many exposures to Minhas products, I am more and less than human. I have been partially subsumed into becoming a Cyberman, but only partially. That, plus given all of my underway time in the Navy, I am one salty dog, so if I can taste salt in this beer, it is because I am no longer human.

The pour revealed what I thought was initially going to be a Greg Koch special - a fizzy yellow beer until I caught some. unexpected lees and it turned cloudy on me. I had a finger of rocky bone-white head with very good retention in the creeping humidity this evening. Color went from a golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity to a hazy orangish-yellow in just a millisecond. Depending on how clear you want your beer, a gentle pour may be in order. The nose had a pronounced peppery odor, thanks to the coriander, but I could swear that I also caught some salt spray in there. Salt & pepper - what a novel concept! Mouthfeel was full and brisk and it tasted like the lemon pepper seasoning that I like to put on fish. To say that the finish was dry would be like saying that the "Mona Lisa" is a painting. This was alum dry! You could pour this on electronic components in lieu of dessicant in terms of its dryness. Arid Extra Dry had nothing on how dry this beer finished. I think that I would now like to drink a beer.

On tap at the Farmers' Cabinet served in a sort of hex-shaped pint glass. This brew appears a cloudy straw yellow color with a finger plus of white froth. The cap retains fairly well. As it slowly recedes, it leaves spots and finger-like patterns of lace sticking to the glass.

The smell if this brew comes across minorly salty with a bit of a mineral feel to the aroma. More smells seem to be more and more like Berliner weisse with a mild lacto character mixed with lemon and a sweet smell of cereal grains and wheat. There is a fruited quality that comes out towards the backend.

The taste is tart and lemony with a hint if seasalt imparting some minor mineral flavoring. Some fruit like lemon zest and flesh mixes with cereal grain character providing a nice sweetness to counteract the overall tart character of the brew. Faint notes of coriander play in the background with some lemon oily character and a touch of orange.

This is a super easy drinking brew that is tart and refreshing. A modest level of carbonation provides a nice tingle on the tongue. This is light bodied and an awesome take on the style. The alcohol is well hidden for nearly 5%. I haven't had many Gose offerings but this one is by far my favorite to date. Subtle salt addition with pleasant tartness. Very similar to the Berliner weisse style but with a bit of a twist.

Now what in the world is THIS suppose to be, a witbier brewed with sea water, then mixed with a Berliner Weiss? I guess I'll have to find out. 330 ml longneck, on to the beer:

Looks like a kristalweizen. It's golden blonde in color, clean bodied, carbonation bubbles rising to the top. The head is big and airy, slowly going down. The coriander is big in the nose, with a fresh sqeeze of orange. Refreshing! I even got that little note of that sea salt.

It's a little sour. A little lemon pucker. And with a little orange (I'm guessing that's the coriander). You really taste the tang that the salt provides on the sides of your palate. I really enjoy the curveball that the salt adds to this beer. In fact, I think NYC officials would try to ban this, given the anti-salt crusade they're on. Sour orange? This is thought provoking. Wait, if this is brewed with salt, does that mean this brew violates the Reinheitsgebot?

Dear American craft brewers, start brewing with salt! What a great beer, and what a style I've discovered here. Now, get me another bottle!

I poured it into a (German-made!) straight, tall, cylindrical beer glass as instructed, but that failed to accomplish any of the tall, lacy, substantial head that should generate from a beer with such a high concentration of wheat malt. Still, it looks more than an alright with its golden colour and faint lime smear, stream of constant bubbles and pure clarity.

This bouquet is as aromatic as a summer day is long and it has a wonderfully fragrant, almost perfumy coriander spiciness. It isn't "spicy", per se, as it is far too softened and savory to agitate the senses; rather it calms and elates them. If you're capable of prying your nose from that delightful coriander, you might also notice a sour, lemony acidity.

It took one sip for me to wish I had bought multiples rather than just one single bottle. A beer like this is designed and intended to be drank in succession. It is perhaps one of the most refreshing styles of beer I've tried and - despite (or perhaps precisely for) being a tad acidic and, well, yes, salty - it is a style destined for mainstream, mass popularity.

As in a Berliner Weiss, the beer is less notable for its flavour - which is plainly but cleanly malty, kind of herbaceous and with perhaps a hint of tropical fruitiness - than it is its mouthfeel, which is very dry, light and quenching, defined by a lactic acid bacteria and a coarse saltiness. It is only mildly sour (not puckering), but strongly saline tasting.

I wish I could be more descriptive about what I'm tasting; it's frustrating to not be able to accurately or fully put into words the experience. When it comes down to it, this strikes as very much the German variation of a witbier: less flowery and more down to business (in other words: drinking!). While it is ale, it has the cleanness and quaffability of a lager.

According to the history books, we almost lost Gose as a style shortly after WW2 - yet another reason to hate communism. This is a deliciously refreshing, notably unique and, I'm sure, widely appealing style of beer that I can't believe more breweries haven't tried to emulate. Tell your friends, tell your family, run out in the street in your underwear and start screaming - do whatever it takes to get others to try this style. I'd be surprised if they don't like it.

On tap at Max's during their recent German festival.

The beer pours a light golden color with OK head retention and lacing. Don't get a lot on the nose, just some light tartness and saurkraut. Flavors for the most part replicate the nose, except the tartness really dominates this beer. However, it's actually pretty nice, as there's almost what I would call a "brightness" to the tart flavor profile. Mouthfeel is very light, but with a mouthwatering component. Drinkability is exceptional, and I'm sure this beer would be just excellent on a warm summer day.

Nothing spectacular here, but still, this is a very easy to drink and appreciate beer... the sort of thing one could easily drink all day without doing too much harm. Nice.

Poured a murky medium burnt copper hue with a three finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a spicy wheat aroma with a good estery yeast.

The taste was robust and husky with a substantial grainy wheat and mineral twang. Some sweetness and a dry and almost bitter finish.

The mouthfeel was light, yet chewy with an astringent wheat finish.

Overall a very nice experience. An interesting style that is hard to come by in these parts. Very drinkable and suprisingly complex.

11.2 oz bottle, picked up at Merchants in Detroit.

Pours a hazy golden amber, kind of muddy looking, thick white head forms, tight bubbles, slowly settles down to a thin ring and layer, some lace spots. Smell is neat, some sweetness, honey, oats, banana, light fruit, some saltiness, orange peel, almost witbier like, light spice, pretty interesting. Taste is interesting, very light on flavour, almost a tea and salt combination, almost jasmine, salt, slightly vegetal, acidic finish, some spice, but slightly watery, vinegar/brine. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Saltiness feels a bit funny, but otherwise I could see this being refreshing in the summer.

Hazed deep golden appearance. Orange luminates from the beer as well. The one finger off-white head has good retention. Lace is droopy, but decent enough. Aroma's nice. Spicy and herbal. Earthy. Malty. The taste is interesting. Very earthy. Like dirt to an extent. Has a bit of a farmyard presence to it. Malts are sturdy enough. Hops add just a little bitterness. Rock salt is sprinkled on top. The carbonation is a little high. And the body is about medium or a little better. Interesting brew. My first Gose. Not one I'd need to return to anytime soon though.

A: Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head.

S: Sweet citrusy aroma and a very spicy character (coriander) are evident on the nose. There is some lemon juice aroma as well.

T: The beer starts off with some sweet character from the spices with a very lemony flavor against a soft wheat palate. Nice spiciness combines with the lactic acid bacteria added during boil to give this a geuze style flavor with a smooth sourness. The beer finishes with a big citrusy lemonade fade that lingers for a few seconds or two.

M: oily and slick on the tongue and goes down smoothly.

D: Great citrusy flavor with a slick palate makes for a thirst quenching summer time beer. Overall a decent good brew and drinkability.

Leipziger Gose

Pours a clear gold with a chill haze and a sea foam like head.
Aroma of dry wheat, and once again I must refer to sea foam, as there is a scent of saltwater. Light breadyness also.
Taste is tart, with a mild and palatable sour and definitely a little sodium bicarbonate. Savory and complex on the palate, tart, with mild coriander spice delicately interwoven with some wheat and citrus flavors. Euro pale malt body is there somewhere. Light bodied but with stinging carbonation. Overall, one of the most complex, authentic, and amazing beers I've had of German origin. Could drink this regularly.

On-tap at the Brick Store.

Pours a hazy gold color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a patchy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of light malts with a good amount of grassiness. As it warms a small amount of tart fruit aromas waft out.

Tastes very good. Wheat flavors up front are joined by mildly herbal hops and ends with a slight tartness. I tried to taste any hint of the salt but got nothing.

Mouthfeel is good. It has a nice thickness with solid carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I finished my glass fairly quickly and could have another.

Overall this is a tasty beverage. This is my first gose and was fairly impressed. Worth a shot.
