16.9 oz bottle, pours straw gold w/ slight haze. 1/2 inch head fades, nice lacing on glass. Active carbonation. Smell is wheat, funk, coriander, & citrus. Taste is salt, coriander and citrus, fades to malt and white grape. Clean and very balanced. Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and effervescent with a dry finish. Very refreshing. If you've gotten on the gose train try it-very nice without being over the top.

1 pint 0.9 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. A new one to me, a recent import from the Shelton Brothers, "a Leipzig tradition since 1738", "sour German beer brewed with salt & spice".

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a nice crisp clear golden body, with about a finger of white head that falls to a ring rather quickly. Head retention was much weaker than expected. Just a touch cloudy; no sedimentation visible.

S - The aroma comes off mostly floral - coriander steals the show here. Other light spicing / clove / bubblegum aromas are in there, but weak.

T - The taste follows the nose - much more grainy & floral than salty / sour. There is an initial pucker, but it fades almost too quickly. Grainy & papery, with some malty adjunct corn / cardboard water sort of taste in there. Floral coriander / clove / spice is distinct, and not overdone. It's good, but I was hoping for more sour.

M - The feel is crisp & spritzy. Dry, papery, & grainy on the finish. Beckons the palate for another sip.

Overall, traditional, to be sure, but not my favorite take on the style at all. Glad to have tried the classic, but it was a bit too bland in comparison to some of the more far-out examples of a Gose that are available nowadays.

Ritterguts Original Gose -----4/5.

Poured a slighitly hazy off yellow with a small head. Tartness comes through immediately to me and makes this a refresher!

I have had only a few examples of the style so I figured today would be a good day to revisit it while getting the grill out for the first time this year.Pours into a cylinder a hazed orange tinged light golden with a nice looking white head atop.Toasted grain and slightly metallic in the nose along with some lemon zest.A healthy dose of lemon/lactic brings some sourness to the palate,with me not being a fan of anything very sour it kinda turned me off a little,toasted grain and the hint of salt/brine in the finish.I know the gose is becoming a fashionable style right now but it's not my thing,this is a good example though and I tried to rate accordingly.

1 pint .9 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at about 45 degrees F.

Appearance: Pours a clear deep burnished straw gold, like good natural apple cider, and forms a couple fingers of bright white head with good retention. There's enough carbonation visible streaming through the glass to raise global mean temperature by .01 degree C.

Smell: Pale biscuity malt meets sea salt air and mild musty mildew funk. Some hints of tart citrus waft through the aroma as well.

Taste: The flavor profile opens with a rush of salt and funk, which fades to let biscuit and tart lemon-orange citrus through. There's a faint touch of white grape and underripe green apple as well, and the finish leaves the citric tartness lingering beside the mildew funk and salt.

Mouthfeel: Light and quite bubbly, this nails the "refreshing beer" feel.

Overall: I can see why this is one of the beers generally recommended as a staple example of the style. This is a nice, well-executed gose, not too overdone on the salt or sour aspects, with a pleasant depth of character. Will repeat.

Poured into an Euler stange. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger white head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet wheat and light citric tartness, a hint of coriander. Flavor is light wheat, citrus, mild lactic tartness, hint of coriander and salt; interesting light lemon tartness in the finish at the edges of the tongue. Medium bodied with peppery active carbonation. A really nice example of the style, with all flavors handled lightly, but nicely balanced. The tartness is well supported by the wheat body. Both coriander and salt are deftly integrated. I'm not a sour beer fan, but found this nicely made, lightly tart beer to be refreshing and tasty.
