Disappointing. Had heard great things about this but it's very flat, poor carbonation, very little flavor or depth. Mainly just a mildly sour flat mildly salted beer.

Disgusting, not the Gose style I'm used to, tastes like dirty socks

A- cloudy gold with a very short lived white head. No lacing. Looks like a wheat beer, but once again, no head.

S- lemon, yeast... Really light. I get some cider-like notes, along with a really strange yeast funk. It almost reminds me of bakers yeast.

T- salty pizza dough with a light topping of lemon juice. Really really weird. The finish has very strong yeast notes.

M- light, refreshing. It finishes clean. This would be nice on a very hot day.

O- glad I tried it, but I probably wouldn't buy it again. I really wanted to love this beer, but it's just not for me.

Large bubble head to start and it dies to absolutely no bubbles within a minute. No bubbles mean no lace. The color is yellow-gold with a bit of a haze.

Soured pale malt is the predominant smell.

Quite tart, almost within the family of lambics but without the lingering aftertaste. Not nearly as flat as the initial appearance, but the carbonation is still well below my expectations. The body is on the thin side--reminds me of apple juice. Frankly, this is a bit disappointing.

Old gold color, limpid. Not so white foam, quite creamy.
In the smell the saltiness is very strong, on a malty base. No perceptible coriander.
At the taste the saltines is again very intense, and quite aggressive. Very dry.
In the back, you can feel some coriander, and also some other spices (orange peel).
A very peculiar style.
Drinkable and pleasant.

16.9 oz bottle. Hazy gold tone with some yeast sedimentation chunks (says to lightly shake bottle before opening to mix in yeast) - quick white foam. Lightly fruity & salty. A bit smooth & bland and not as tart as many. Picked up sour milk hints. Medium+ body and moderate- carbonation. Bottle says its brewed by Ritterguts Gose in Borna/Saxony, Germany.

I am definitely spoiled by the more 'in your face' Gose versions, though I would imagine that this is closer to the classic take. Subdued coriander and barely noticeable salt. More akin to a witte than what I am accustomed to in a Gose (Westbrook, AV). This is even far more subdued than Jammer. That being said, the slight acidity, balance and light refreshing mouthfeel should be considered in the Gose conversation. Glad I tried it, but would personally reach for something more pungent next time. Cheers!

Plenty of salt but a lack of tartness. Much more like a spiced hefe or wit beer

Served on-draught at Ohne Bedenken in Leipzig, Germany. Serving vessel was a half litre generic glass. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were above average.

A: Pours a three finger head of poor thickness, without any cream, and of poor retention. Colour is a hazy cloudy copper-orange.

Sm: A very delicate light aroma of light sourness. It's alright.

T: Not as sour as the other gosen I've tried. The lactic acidity does come through, although it's more present on the open and in the body than on the climax or finish. The sourness is largely on the climax but feels held back and restrained. It seems like a somewhat weak rendering of the original recipe. Even the salt isn't particularly notable. Lemon esters are the only esters I detect. Fairly complex. Balanced for the style.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but just the right amount. Complements the flavours of the body.

Dr: Pricey by German standards, and not particularly brilliant. Certainly worth a try to experience a restrained form of the style. Not a beer you'd have often, but it would make for a nice occasional gose.
