Review: 0,5l bottle of Original Ritterguts Gose, Gose style: 4.7% ABV

Comes in a lovely brown bottle with an interesting old style logo of some old fella messing around with some flasks and beer in a lab, the creative genius behind this beer no doubt.

On pour get a very frothy white headed beer with a lovely looking golden orange colour. 
Head does die and the beer goes all a bit hazy after a while.

A piercing, very fruity smell, very citrusy and I can definitely get the salt aroma. Also got a strong smell of grapes and/or cherries.

Taste is very sweet, wow.
Like a very sweet pop drink with a lot of hops. An interesting style alright.
Very sweet tastes, malty, citrusy, the salt and it is also quite yeasty. But it is quite well balanced considering all the different tastes and flavours contained within the brew. 

Not a bad style, could get into it. 
Kind of like it, for a new style I tried, interesting, would like to try some more to get more of a feel to it. Would never have guessed that salt and coriander would be a suitable mix for a beer. 

The salt taste is very prominent, basically just jumps out at ya and gives you a big slap in the face!

Quite strong too, kind of like an energy drink. I say that as I was buzzing, but that could be the football, Korea just knocked Germany out of the World Cup!!

Will definitely try this beer and style again. Gose beers have a new fan!

500ml bottle
4.7% ABV

(as Original Ritterguts Gose)
The beer pours a slightly hazed metallic gold colour with a white head that had the retention of a soft-drink. There is plenty of effervescence visible in the glass. The aroma is tart fruit, spices, and yeast. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with above average carbonation. The flavour is very tart, with spices and salt thrown in. A better than average gose.

First stab at this style, so I’ll use Berliner Weisse and gueuze as references. Also reminiscent of a sour ale. Darker in color than above mentioned styles, aroma of vinegar, cider, and light malt. Taste is cider, malt and hints of the salt used in the process. This a regional specialty, and its own unique style. I’ll go the experts on this one, pretty good stuff

Cloudy yellow with no real carbonation, and topped with 3 fingers of fluffy, well retained off white head.

Smells of coriander, pee malt, biscuit, slight salty quality, and a hint of acid.

Sour, dried honey comb, coriander, lemon juice, and biscuit.

Medium, bready body with a huge, foamy carbonation.

Got this in Gravenhurst, drinking in Muskoka Jan 7th, 2018. Really well done classic gose.

1/2 liter Bottle racked 3 months ago - decants a lightly hazed pale straw colored ale with a puffy 3 finger cap which reduces quickly to a lasting surface lace. Aromas are complex but demure - tart, bready smells, coriander and some salt with a woodsy-musty-funky tone - magnificent! Soft mouth feel, light bodied, tart-salty-bready character. The Flavor is directly to style profile - dusty biscuity malts are met with salty-tart-spicy notes - these flavors balance without the detection of hops - finish is long dry, sour and lightly bitter riding on a corriander under tone. Absolutely refreshing, tart dry summer drink - world class - the benchmark other Gose brewers will be judged by.

Classic optics - nice carbonation, soft cap, golden straw. One of the traditional Goses - mild lactic tartness, coriander and salt. A teeny bit more spice than I personally prefer, and body seemed weirdly heavy as well, but all around good

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A- murky with a yellow almost copper green aspect. Not much head.
S- lemon grass, citrus good old fashion musky sour kind of quality to it.
T- lemon tangy a little spice almost a bit of apple cider vinegar taste. A lot going on.
M- wish it had a bit more carbonation on the low side. When you first sip it it's almost smooth and flat in the carbonation comes on your tongue. The mouth feel is what I feel like let me down.
I- Not a bad beer at all, the flavor to me is where it shines. Easy drinking, though it's not the best beer in the style that I've had.

500ml bottle poured into tulip 11/4/17

A murky and milky stuff with a finger of foam that manages to leave a few partial rings

S lemon, wheat, apple, coriander, honey, yogurt, smells like a waffle topping

T sweet, salty, and sour, with some spice, what's not going on here? cereals, citrus, and some apple cider vinegar, very different from the nose and even better, I wasn't expecting this....

M light bodied with pin prick bubbles, mildly sour, super refreshing, dry finish turns oily somehow, sour brine finish

O I just downed a half liter of this stuff in the 5 minutes it took me too type this, just saying......

I think this is my first classic version of the style and I'm loving it, I could just smash this stuff under a hot Sun, my futures fairly predictable......

Pours an almost clear medium gold producing barely 1.5 fingers of eggshell, short-lived, mineral water foamy head that leaves no lace. Aroma is clean, dry wheat & pilsner malts, bready, white wine vinous with hints of tart fruits, brine & very thin coriander. Taste opens with wheat, pilsner malt, lactic acid sourness & a pleasant hint of coriander, the malts diminish greatly at midsip, being overtaken by more intense coriander & tart fruit especially green apple & the addition of brine a yeast funk. Aftertaste is a short-lived wheat, coriander, briney lemon, lime & tart green apple. Easier to drink than most American versions I have tried due to less lactic acid sourness & salt. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation that rapidly dissipates as this crisp brew warms, mouth watering & dry with a slight prickle. A traditional & very drinkable representative of the style.
