Verloren Gose slated for May Release

TASTING NOTES
A link to the ales of Saxony that have all but vanished, Gose is a peculiar yet captivating brew. From a base of an unfiltered wheat ale, it’s light and refreshing yet also has a softness to it. The flavor is brought to life by an unexpected touch of salt for a mineral quality, and coriander for a peppery spice. The result is an unusual and delicate brew that’s full of flavors to discover.

BREWING NOTES
A rare, almost lost style from Saxony where the Reinheitsgebot didn’t yet apply. Pronounced “goes-uh”
Light and refreshing with a cereal note from its malted and unmalted wheat
Soft and milky taste from lactic acid
Rounded out by the addition of salt and a peppery spice of coriander
