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.

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.

well it is a strange style of beer and even the leipzigers disagree about whether you can drink it or not. unlike the German purity law it contains lactic acid, salt and coriander, making this beer sour but very refreshing especially in summer. the Bayerischer Bahnhof Gose is a good one for your first experience with that style.
looks light golden with a soft head. the smell is slightly sour with hints of spices like coriander of course. tastes both sour and salty with clear citrus aroma. a light body with soft carbonation makes it very drinkable. unfortunately this Gose has almost no aftertaste.

Poured from a bottle into a New Glarus flute.

A: Hazy, pale golden

S: Mild lemony smell; some malt; not much going on

T: Mild sour and tartness; very little salt

M: Not overly carbonated, but a fair amount; a bit tangy

O: Nothing like I'm used to in the regards to Gose. Westbrook has perfected it in my opinion. This wasn't bad, but not great compared to what I've had. This could have been a bit old, as it was sitting in the cooler at my local haunt for several months. May revisit this with a fresh bottle.

11.2oz bottle poured into a stemmed glass.

(A)- Pours a hazy pale goldenrod color that produced a nice cap of white froth. Decent retention.

(S)- A lively light yet crisp lemony tartness meets a subtle coriander-like salty spice to it. Ever so slight mild earthiness.

(T)- I really like the level of crisp lemony tartness this has. It quickly flows into a subtle salty spice element in the middle. Finishes dry with more of that lemony tartness again.

(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. Light, crisp, and mildly tart. The essential beer for summertime in my opinion.

(O)- I have not had alot of experience with Gose yet, but I am thoroughly enjoying this one! I am really surprised this does not have a higher rating on this site. It is beautifully balanced and thrist quenchingly crisp. The perfect summertime beer.
