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.
