Inspired by a trip to Leipzig, Germany, the original home of Gose. This beer is tart, crisp, and slightly fruity with just a hint of salinity. Traditional Leipziger Gose isn’t bracingly sour, nor is it salty like the ocean, but instead finds a balance between a refreshing lemonade-like tartness coupled with a dry finish imparted by the salt which begs you to take another sip. A traditional German Hefeweizen yeast gives just a hint of banana and clove, while accentuating the graininess of the large amount of wheat that is used in the beer. A classic style that has become a classic seasonal in our lineup.
