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.

A - Hazy golden color with thick white head that recedes to a thin white line leaving thin lacing.

S - Fruity and yeasty with Saison-like qualities.

T - Mild fruitiness, yeast and mineral flavors with sweet tones and notes of apricot in the finish.

B - The body is light with crisp, lively carbonation and a semi-dry finish.

Great session brew alternative. It's like a Saison Light.

Looks like homeade ginger beer with its refreshing, hazy, caramel orange color. The beer pours a nice, sponge like, off white head that starts a t two fingers and retreats to a solid one, throughout. The aromas are of (who'd a thunk it) spicy corriander and sea salt. This begs for a hot pretzel with mustard. The beer is medium bodied and creamy in the mouth. A very refreshing drink that shows best quite cold. An intriguing element of savory from the salt adds local color to the beer. Perhaps the salt is so you keep on drinking? Brilliant glass of suds.

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a yellowish color and a cloudy consistency. There was a big, foamy, long-lasting head. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: A sharp aroma of malt, grain, and coriander.

T: Tasted basically like it smelled: malt and grain up front with a hint of coriander in the finish. Oddly, this beer gets better and more flavorful as you go along.

M: A generally well carbonated beer with a dry finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

D: This is the first Gose I've ever tried so I don't have anything to compare it to. Nevertheless, this was an enjoyable, drinkable beer.
