Destihl Wild Sour Series: Here Gose Nothin’
Our Leipzig-Style Gose undergoes a spontaneous fermentation, similar to Belgian-style gueuze/lambic beers, and exhibits a complexity of acidic, flavor and aroma contributed by wild yeasts and bacteria in the fermentation. A primary difference between Belgian Gueuze and German-style Gose is that Gose is served at a much younger age. Gose is pale gold in color, has a fuller mouthfeel from added oats, and its hop character and malt flavors & aromas are negligible. Lemony and other citrus-like qualities are present in aroma and on the palate as well as the spicy character of added coriander and some mineral-mouthfeel from added sea salt as is traditionally common in this style. The beer’s lactic acid character is evident as a sharp, refreshing sourness, and it is typically enjoyed fresh, carbonated and cloudy with yeast character.
