Pale straw colored body clouded with yeast; initial foamy white head that quickly disappears. Fruity, slightly lemon-like aroma. Tangy, sour flavor; mild cereal grain taste. Medium-heavy body; smooth; crisp and acidic.

A most interesting beer that delivers a nice sour, puckering quality to your taste buds. Very citrus-like, kind of a cross-between lemon and grapefruit flavor, maybe some fresh pineapple. The lack of any head is my only major complaint, but that cosmetic takes nothing away from this sharp, twangy delight.

L: Great label on bottle. Old man in top hat and black coat smoking a cigar. Year 1738 mentioned. A nice robust head once poured, had to settle the pour down a bit to keep from overflowing. Dissipated very quickly. Almost no head after two minutes. No lacing on glass.
S: A familiar medicinal, fairly wine-like smell. Sour too.
T: Has the expected sour/salt combo going on. A bit of smooth, rounded out-ness in the background. Pretty mild compared to some of the US goses I've had.
F: Rated down some since pretty flat and thin.
O: Was excited to see an actual German gose in the liquor store. Seems odd to me that this traditionally German style of beer is absolutely dominated by US craft brewers. This a nice, straight forward version of the style. Recommend trying if you can find.

I am truly a sucker for a Gose, and this has it dialed in. Perfect sour-salt balance. Very drinkable, but punchy enough to stand up favorably against any U.S. version I've had. Must find again.

Classic example that sets the bar for Gose. Prost!

500 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin rind of lace that lingers. Minimal spotty lacing around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, berry, wheat, bread dough, coriander, sea salt, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy/acidic yeast, sea salt/spice, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tart lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, berry, wheat, bread dough, coriander, sea salt, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light-moderate tart/saline/spicy finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, berry, wheat, bready dough, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy/acidic yeast, sea salt/spice, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/acidic/saline balanced finish and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and fairly acidic/saline mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is an excellent gose style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy/acidic yeast, salt/spice, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink with the balanced acidity. A very enjoyable offering.

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.
