BEER INFO

Brewed by:
DESTIHL Brewery
Illinois, United States

Style: Leipzig 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.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a shaker pint.

Look - Slightly cloudy golden amber body with a very fast dissipating pillowy white head. Strong streams of bubbles in this one.

Smell - Wet leaves, cut grass, lemon-lime soda, acidic vinegar, dirty gym bag. A lot of funk here.

Taste - Stings the tongue immediately after sipping with a strong acidic sourness, stronger than a Lemon Head but not quite Atomic Warhead. A lot of the funky smells also carry over to the taste. Mellows down into a tongue-coating tartness.

Feel - Medium-thin body with strong carbonation takes a bit of the edge off the sourness. Still, my whole face puckers into itself on every sip. The sour is quite strong.

Overall - I'm completely inexperienced with sour beers, and I'm not sure if they're my thing. This beer is the opposite of a relaxing drink. I'm kinda scared every time I take a sip. But I kinda invite the roughness.

Pouring from a 12 oz. can into a wine glass. This beer pours out straw like in color. It forms a white crown that quickly fades away to nothing, letting you hear every bubble pop along the way. The smell is a classic gose, a bunch of salt that makes you get the feeling of being on a beach. The taste is much of the same. Brings a huge salty and sourness that just bounce off each other while providing some light fruit notes as well. Overall, this is a great example of the style.

Pour is pale golden slightly hazy. Foamy cap dissipates quickly.

Smells of coriander, salt, faint malt

Taste - delicious. Tart & salty, light notes of coriander, lemon, grass, super clean, dry, very refreshing.

Body holds together well, medium light, just right.

Excellent gose and a great all around refreshing sour. I could drink this by the gallon. My favorite of the Wild Sour series by far.

Pours light cloudy, gold. Foamy, short white head fades immediately.

Tastes lemon, citrus peel, bready, funk, light citrus and salt hints. Finish is dry with citrus Linger. Lighter body and fizzy medium carbonation.

Golden clear color. Not overly tart. Does not have a strong bouquet of scent to it. It’s drinkable if this is your first ‘Gose’ beer. I think they sacrificed some of the characteristics of a Gose to improve drink-ability. The ABV comes in at 5.2 which is on the high end for a sour. It’s a good beginner’’s Sour beer.
