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.

Welcome to another edition of "I Could Drink This Beer All Day!" Today's guest beer... Leipziger Gose!!

Cloudy gold with w hite fluffy head. The aroma was neat as hell - coriander with a backdrop of estery wheat. Mmm...

The glass is too small. I don't care if you're holding a liter maas of it - the glass is too small. Starts with a slightly tart, lemony background under a wheat malt and coriander blanket with some banana esters thrown in. Some slight saltiness, but since I just finished a KUL (with an aftertaste like Alka-Seltzer) it seemed a bit subdued over what I was expecting. Very creamy mouthfeel with somewhat light body. Finishes as it starts - lemon, coriander, wheat malt and esters, dash of salt. Damned drinkable.

PintofAle nailed it - like a cross between a wit and a hefeweiss. A friend of mine said it tasted like a Rotbusser (obscure German wheat/oat ale) with coriander added. If you see this - try it. Excellent brew. (952 characters)

Just picked this up at Putnam's shop... The label says that it's brewed with salt, and, man, I believe it. Great, intriguing flavors...

A lemon zest character is one of the predominant, fragrant aromas that arise from the glass. Strong floral smell. As it warms, it has in the nose a sort of muted sugar sweetness that reminds me of saltwater taffy. The tangy flavor smacks of citric acid and suits the light body well. So it seems to start off as a simple refresher, but a very textured mid-palate leads to an almost-salty flavor that masks any big finish and lingers for minutes afterwards. If you even think of serving this at refrigerator temperature, smack yourself around a little bit. The aromas and flavors are too interesting to subdue. (748 characters)

Nice, Nice beer. Awesome to try something new, and then have it be a brand new beer to our shores, a new style.

A beautiful cloudy light orange when poured. Lovely head, and lace left through-out the glass. Very fresh floral aroma.

Full bodied, perfect carbonation. A bit sweet, but definitely in a twist off the wit style. What I found was a slightly tart apple like flavor in the finish and also thought the finish was slightly dry. Could have sworn I picked up on a bit of the salt used in this beer in the aftertaste.

This is not your typical German beer. I really enjoyed it, it reminded me slightly of Allagash white. One I would recommend to anyone, especially a fellow BA. (689 characters)

I grew up on "well" water. We had two taps: one straight from the well and one that ran through "softener." This tastes like pure softener. Not "salty," rather, vaguely mineral and sandy in texture that gives the flavor a broad, fluffy texture to stand on.
The flavor is deliciously dry, with easy, sour orange acidity, damp concrete, and a grassy, branchy herbal snap on the finish. The color is a rich, cloudy brown/orange.
Another beer of ethereal quality from B. United. (476 characters)
