Had this on tap at the Ohne Bedenken Gosenschenke in Leipzig...

A- Poured a cloudy golden hue (much like a Hefeweizen) with a stark, rocky white head.
S- Aroma is surprisingly yeasty (like the trub left in the fermenter for you brewers out there) with the wafting smell of sea salt.
T- Assertive lactic acid bite up front, similar to a Berliner Weisse. A citrus-sweet, floral wheat malt profile hangs on your tongue, balancing with the slight flavor of coriander until it gives way to a bitter hop finish with just enough salt to leave the taste on your tongue.
M- Carbonated, but not overly so (not nearly as carbonated as a Hefe, despite the similar appearance).
D- Very refreshing; could drink these all night.

Overall: What an amazing beer. I had tried the Bayerischer Bahnhof Gose on tap in the States, and this put B-Bahnhof to shame. The lactic acid is assertive but not as dominating as it is in a Berliner Weisse. I suppose it can't be if you want the coriander and salt contributions to come through. And while the salt gave it an earthy quality, it never becomes savory. The salt complements the sweetness of the wheat malt and coriander in the same way that you add salt to cookies and other sweets. Overall there are some unique flavors here that all come together to make something unexpected and remarkable. While B-Bahnhof plays it safe, Doellnitzer/Ohne Bedenken goes all the way to make an incredible beer. If you are anywhere near Leipzig you HAVE to stop by Ohne Bedenken or pick up a bottle in a local liquor store/supermarket.

Bottle from Proof. Pours a clear straw with bubbly white head that faded pretty quickly to nothing. No wisps, collar, anything. Aroma is grassy and dry yeast tartness. Taste is tart throughout, slightl pear fruitiness, and slightly metallic. Light body and low carbonation. Very drinkable though.

Hazy yellow grassy color with a thin white head that recedes quickly. Aroma of buttery corn and yeast. Flavor is initially yeasty, but not overpowering. Flavor evolves to corny malt and finishes crisp with zesty lemon and some spice, sorta peppery. Some spicy lemon lingers. Relatively low drinkability due to the yeast/lemon combo that was a bit much for my pallete.

Pours two finger of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is fresh baked bread, limes and wet hay.
The taste has a mild lemon bitter beginning and quickly moves to a strong sour and tart flavor.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
It has an uncommon taste for today's brews, but it's quite enjoyable.

Lepinzer Gose: Gose, which fairly closely rhymes with Jose (as in me and Jose down by the school yard), or so I am told. I had this on tap at the Map Room in Chicago, and it was seven bucks for a relatively small glass. Given the price, and my own internal hype, I expected to be blown away, but I was not. To me it tasted like a dry weiss beer.

It presented like any other weiss beer: cloudy golden color, nice thick head (although not particularly long lasting) and it had a yeasty/banana aroma.

As suggested above the taste was not overwhelming. Had it been presented as another weiss, I’d have thought it was tasty, and different but not so much that it fell outside the broad umbrella of the style. Coriander? Really? I never tasted it. Because I know it was brewed with salt, it was noticeable, and it was the salt that tended to dry out the taste in the end.

This was a very well made beer, unfortunately I’d set my sights on something absolutely unique, and the Gose style was not.
