Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A traditional German beer style that was all but extinct 30 years ago. An amazingly refreshing beer brewed with coriander and sea salt. The tart, dry finish combined with the hint of salt and citrus leaves your palate craving another sip.

L -- Murky yellow. Aerated pour produces a two-finger white head that dissipates quickly to nothing. No lacing. Highly effervescent
S -- Grain, briny sulfur, lemon. Very mild
T -- Sea salt takes center stage, made more refreshing by hints of lemon, coriander, tarragon, cranberry, and wheat
F -- The high carbonation and mild flavors make for a refreshing mouthfeel. Not too watery thanks to the saltiness
O -- This is a great summer outdoors brew. If you pace yourself and drink it instead of water, it can be just as hydrating.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Hazy yellow with a thin white head.

Smell: Flower and grassy notes.

Mouthfeel/ Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of sweet/sour citrus with hints of cloves, apples, and wheat.

Overall: Good beer, drinks like a cider with a similar finish.

16 oz can

L- good head, didn't diminish quickly, slightly cloudy decent lacing

S- salty, lemon, light spice

T- salty and lively carbonation do most of the heavy lifting on this one. lemon and coriander come in to play later and lightly.

F- light, salt, easy.

O- super easy drinking summer beer. saltiness is strong but not overpowering. didn't get knocked over with it though. this is a solid beer, def going in the rotation.

Thanks to stillmatic2232 for this 16 oz. can, a welcome diversion from the parade of IPAs, stouts, & barleywines…wow, that sounds whiney. Let’s drink.

The pour is a yellow that turns flat faster than the tire on a 1980 Pinto (personal experience - I knew where every ’free air’ sign in St. Paul was). Salt is the only thing that touches the nose, but even that is faint & weak.

Lost Nation Gose is meek. The saltiness that defines the style is less than mild, & further diluted by the coriander & a slight sourness. Citrus? Dry. Drinkable.

Neither a good beer for the style nor overall. Sub-mediocre.

Drank this on a trip up to Burlington, VT at the Farmhouse. I've only had this beer at tributary brewing in Maine and after an initial "wtf did I just put in my mouth", I grew to love it.

This version of it is extremely drinkable - sour balanced by salt. Give it a try
