Had this on tap at Ohne Bedenken in Leipzig and loved it.

It poured nice and cloudy with a beautiful head and smelled very yeasty with a hint of salt--not as wheat-smelling as it should be until you get to the taste, which is delectable. Bites you with lactic acid at the beginning and then mellows out into a good wheat beer (more banana/clove than the Bahnhof variety) with that undercurrent of salt/coriander tang, which dry out the end and leave you wanting more, and more, and more.

I would say this is a little bit more traditional than the Bahnhof variety just because I get more of the strong wheat beer taste here, but honestly I think they're both excellent beers. Everyone should make a trip to Leipzig to try them.

Had this on tap at the Ohne Bedenken Gosenschenke in Leipzig...

A- Poured a cloudy golden hue (much like a Hefeweizen) with a stark, rocky white head.
S- Aroma is surprisingly yeasty (like the trub left in the fermenter for you brewers out there) with the wafting smell of sea salt.
T- Assertive lactic acid bite up front, similar to a Berliner Weisse. A citrus-sweet, floral wheat malt profile hangs on your tongue, balancing with the slight flavor of coriander until it gives way to a bitter hop finish with just enough salt to leave the taste on your tongue.
M- Carbonated, but not overly so (not nearly as carbonated as a Hefe, despite the similar appearance).
D- Very refreshing; could drink these all night.

Overall: What an amazing beer. I had tried the Bayerischer Bahnhof Gose on tap in the States, and this put B-Bahnhof to shame. The lactic acid is assertive but not as dominating as it is in a Berliner Weisse. I suppose it can't be if you want the coriander and salt contributions to come through. And while the salt gave it an earthy quality, it never becomes savory. The salt complements the sweetness of the wheat malt and coriander in the same way that you add salt to cookies and other sweets. Overall there are some unique flavors here that all come together to make something unexpected and remarkable. While B-Bahnhof plays it safe, Doellnitzer/Ohne Bedenken goes all the way to make an incredible beer. If you are anywhere near Leipzig you HAVE to stop by Ohne Bedenken or pick up a bottle in a local liquor store/supermarket.

Big fan of the style and this one did not let me down. Had it side by side with Lost Nation Gose to compare. This one was slightly more funky but not quite as clean. Great beer that I would love to have again.

Bottle that was a Father's Day gift from my daughter who knows what I like to drink. Medium-strong sour with a pleasant salty-sweet finish. Reminds me of eating Granny Smith apples or Macintosh apples with salt. A refreshing, light sour with low ABV that I will not hesitate to drink again.

Found in Denver, CO. I don't see many gose beers so this was one I couldn't pass up. Also had the rather interesting old school label with the guy smoking a cigar, wearing a top hat. I like old school.

Pours a rich gold with a flash of a white crisp head that clears away fast, yet still retains a lot of nice lacing that helps keep bubbles around the edge to the glass. Looks just as many good gose I've had before.

Smell is very light, it has that odd malt and lemons and dull spice smell. A bit earthy. Once you smell a goes or two you never forget. I smelled this and immediately knew what it was. Obviously of higher quality than the last few I have had. Doesn't let on of it's sourness.

The taste is great! Has a lot going on and is actually the most sour of all the gose that I've had. There is a fair amount of spice as well. The beer itself whirls through tones of lemonade, lightly toasted malt, and pickles... without the dill...

The mouthfeel is quite nice as well. Very smooth, light, crisp and slightly dry with a pucker of sourness that hits toward the back of the mouth.

Overall, I really enjoyed this. Best gose so far to date. The 'sour German beer' comment on the back label is truthful through and though. I'll be looking for this again, no doubt.
