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.

My first chance to sample this style, and I was interested to see how the use of salt would work. The salt was reserved, adding more of a sharp tangyness than actual salinity. Moderately tart, with some coriander in the background. Mouthfeel was lean and wheaty. I can see this as an excellent hot-weather quencher.

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.

A: Golden with a dusty brown tinge rather like oxidized pineapple juice. Bubbles on the inside of the glass, cloudy so you can’t see any carbonation within. A 3 finger head of yellow ocher with a candy glass shine.

S: Coriander, peach juice, a sort of brine to it. Makes me feel like I’m about to drink juice.

T: Sour, brine, tobacco, salty, light fruitiness like peach or nectarine juice, but not sweet so its like unripe fruit. Coriander is present but not strong at all.

M: Medium juicy body, medium low carbonation.

O: A classic brew. I’ve been drinking Westbrook’s version of this which is much more sour. This is really good, and presumably more traditional being from Germany and done to style. Unique, balanced, fruity, salty and sour, its nice on a warm night at Table Rock Lake, MO. Drank Aug. 6th, 2014.
