All about Gose

What is Gose?

Gose beer (which you should pronounce as "go-zuh") is a pale wheat ale with a distinctive flavor that derives from the addition of salt and coriander. The style originates from Germany, but today, it's popular in the U.S. and Australia as well. 

Thanks to its moderate alcohol content, from 4.2% to 4.8% ABV, this beer is pretty stackable. No need to end the party prematurely. The aroma tends to be sour, but still refreshing thanks to the high carbonation content. Coriander adds a sour lemon-like note to the beer, but you'll also perceive hints of malt, dough and pome fruits. The hop bitterness is very mild, and you might not notice it at all. The body is light or medium.

You'll recognize this beer from its yellow or light gold hue and the long-lasting foam on the head. If you happen to like fruity flavors, you'll also find many appealing versions, such as blueberry or watermelon Gose. 

Why do they call it Gose?

We're not 100% sure why this sour beer has such a fancy name, but historians believe it's named after the city of Goslar in Eastern Germany, where brewers first started producing this style of wild ale

A versatile beer that pairs with many foods

Despite its complex flavor profile, Gose sour beer is surprisingly food-friendly. When assembling a cheese plate, remember that this beer pairs well with goat cheeses, Asiago and burrata. Alternatively, you can try Gose with blueberry desserts, crab cake, lobster, BBQ meats or grilled fish. Thanks to the slightly salty aroma, you can also use this type of beer when cooking. 

When the weather gets hot, try a Gose to quench your thirst. Shop Drizly or click these links to find us in your city, or browse liquor stores near you.
