About the Gose

The Gose (pronounced GOH-zeh) style originated during the Middle Ages in the town of Goslar. Production declined following the Second World War but has been revived during the modern craft beer era. Its appearance is hazy with a medium gold color. Puffy white head with excellent retention. Visibly effervescent. Its feel should have a medium body with high carbonation. Being dry and salty lends a mouthwatering quality. Its aroma and palate have a light sourness with noticeable amounts of salt and coriander. Bitterness is all but absent with no hop flavor. Its saltiness should be used with restraint. And its sourness shouldn’t be as intense as found in a Berliner Weisse or a Gueuze.
