Beers

Gose

Gose, pronounced GOH-zeh, is a historical style of sour beer from Leipzig, Germany. It is a wheat beer that is fruity from the use of ale yeast, tart from the kettle souring with lactobacillus bacteria, salty from dosing with sea salt, and spicy from the restrained addition of coriander. Surprisingly distinctive from all other beer styles, this is a great thirst quencher. Note: historically more sour than today’s kettle soured versions, goses traditionally were often sweetened with flavored syrups to provide balance while adding flavors of fruit, herbs and/or spices.
