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.

I really enjoy this gose, it feels like a style benchmark to me. I have to think in terms of bjcp style guidelines this would pretty much nail it. Salt addition is very well done, not mouth puckering like some of the newer American varieties that have come along, it's just a hint to make this super refreshing. The coriander is similarly restrained, you notice a whiff of it in the nose but it really isn't a coriander flavored beer in the strict sense. Mouthfeel is crisp, between the salt and the carbonation level plus the relatively light malt base. Definite grassiness in the flavor, and some light breadiness as well. There's a sensation of lime juice in the way this drinks, perhaps owing to the tart finish. This is an easy beer to recommend to anyone that wants to learn what a gose is all about.

Sampled back on 1/9/15. Comes in a heavy 330ml (11.2 ounce). 4.6% ABV. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage tulip glass.

bBew pours a clear golden-yellow in color with a good 3-finger foamy white head. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped which is different from the pour. Aroma is of some grains with some lemon zest I am guessing that is slightly sour. Taste is close to the nose with some tartness with a hint of coriander and very light salt. No bitterness or harsh aftertaste at all. Lighter-bodied with lower carbonation. Crisp and clean. I like this brew style as this is the 3rd one I have had, from different breweries.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly cloudy yellow color with a large white head. The aroma is grains and coriander. The taste is spiced grain that is lightly tart. An excellent gose.
