BEER INFO

Brewed by:
DESTIHL Brewery
Illinois, United States
destihl.com

Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Leipzig-Style Gose undergoes a spontaneous fermentation, similar to Belgian-style Gueuze/Lambic beers, and exhibits a complexity of acidic flavor and aroma contributed by wild yeast lactic fermentation. Lemon, lime and other citrus-like qualities are present in aroma and on the palate, which is balanced by the spicy character of added coriander and a mineral-mouthfeel from added sea salt.

A- Light golden yellow body pours from the can with a mostly clear appearance into my glass. The cap that forms on the beer peaks at about a finger high with a foamy texture. Fair head retention and a small ring leaves rare lacing.

S- Well, this is certainly a Gose with a description that is for the most part spot on. The lactic acid is clean and strong in the forefront with citrus notes like lemon and then a hint of lime. Coriander adds a floral, herbal hint and it all has a bit of a briny smell to it.

T- The citrus-esque flavors seem to be stronger with lemon up front and then some lime notes right beside them. Lactic acid bacteria bring a strong tartness which approaches fairly sour by the end of the experience. Fairly salty overall with just a tiny hint of grains and coriander later on.

MF- Light-medium body for this style and the acidity seems to bring a slickness with it perhaps due to a slight lack of texture. A puffy feel and high carbonation. Ends sour.

A quality take on a classic style. The acidity seems to grow a bit too much overall and the ferment might be a bit too clean if that is possible.

I love salt, and this is the least salty gose I've had, yet I still signed in for the first time in ages to save and rate it. A must try for anyone that likes sour beers.

Not really into Gose or sours. This one was actually nice tough - had an interesting after taste. Would be great for people would love their beer really sour.

12 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, salt, wheat and touch of bread. Taste is sour, acidic tart and light sweetness. Light bodied dry finish. Not a fan of the Gose style but glad I tried it.

Drank from the can paid 2 bucks for it. Not a bad gose if anything the abv is a bit higher and the tart level was nice with decent salt balance. Worth trying.

White head. Golden orange color.

Nice lime citrus flavor up front. Salty and tart. Sour. Lemon citrus as well. Sour patch kids. This has a nice amount of flavor. Ends with no flavor in the finish except more tartness.

Very enjoyable compared to others in this style.
