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.

Nice. Quite salty, spicy and citric. Some cloves. Lightly tart and acidic. Mouthcovering palate, while not being to heavy, left me wanting more after every sip. NIce dry, light, yet palate covering, everything seemed to be in its right place. Cool bottle too. Great beer. Thanks Per.

This beer pours a cloudy pale yellow hue, with a few fingers of foamy white head, which leaves thin webbed lace as it melts away. It smells of lemon citrus, wheat, and floral, grassy hops. The taste is sour, acidic lemon, sweet wheat grain, and herbal hops. The carbonation is fairly muted, the body a bit thin and oily, and it finishes dry and lemony.

A nicely refreshing, and surprisingly sour fruity beer. Right up my alley.

An intereting beer and after having this one example, a style that needs to be explored more. Pours a clear golden color with a large white head that had good retention before settling to a thin cap. Just a little lacing is left behind. The aroma is that of a witbier. It consists of yeasty phenols and coriander with hints of lemon and sour apples. The flavor starts with wheat malt, then it turns mildly tart, then slightly salty in the finish. The spice is not really noticed at all. The body feels a bit thin and flat. An enjoyable beer and none of the unique elements are too robust so it should not scare anyone away.
