Notes / Commercial Description:
This original Leipzig beer specialty lends us the name for our brewery. Gose is a regional beer specialty that was brought to Saxony-Anhalt in the year 1738. Originally Gose comes from Goslar, a small town in Lower Saxony, and the river “Gose” in this town. This beer specialty has a refreshing, slightly sour taste and is ideal for quenching your thirst. Gose is brewed with the additional ingredients lactic acid, cilantro, and salt. Gose is a top-fermented beer with 4.5% ABV and 10.8% wort. You can enjoy it in different variations.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a Hefe glass head that quickly faded and no lacing. Light golden color, no cloudiness.

Smells slightly sour, acidic, lemony

Taste is refreshing and complex. Some spice up front, definitely pick up on the wheat aspect and then a tart sour finish.

Easy drinking, light body with moderate carbonation.

First time trying this style and I like it. Different and definitely something that would be thirst quenching come summertime.

Served on tap at Track 84, Warwick RI on the advice of Phil (a customer) and Donna, the tender. My first gose.

A: cloudy orange with a small head that disappeared almost immediately; no lacing

S: definitely fruity; description mentioned coriander, salt and pine needles, but none of those were evident by aroma

T: different than what I usually like. Definitely a wheat beer like taste, with almost a sourness to it. Very easy to drink

M: some carbonating, but not too much. Hit different parts of the tongue.

O: a refreshing pour that I would enjoy during warmer months. Pricey, but worth it over any of the others similar. Glad for the recommendation of a fellow customer.

The beer pours a relatively cloudy golden orange with a thin halo of white head around the perimeter. The nose is definitely light and sweet, spice forward with a touch of saline and funk lingering in the background (accented when warmed). A dull coriander is present in the taste, but it's more difficult to detect comparatively. There is definitely more grain sweetness as well. However, no flavor is particularly overpowering and all blend nicely. The beer's mouthfeel is slightly tart, semi-sweet, spicy, light bodied and effervescent, with minimal funk or booze. This is a very easy drinking gose, but out of my price range for a repeat.
