Beer style defined: Gose

Gose – The term “Gose” (pronounced GO-zuh) is essentially a glorified German term for sour. The difference between a gose and a sour, though, is a gose is not as sour in taste. Many times, sea salt and coriander are predominant ingredients in a gose. Yeah, we know what you’re thinking: sea salt? It might sound weird, but think of it like electrolytes in Gatorade. The sea salt makes your mouth water, making you want more. If you’re not bold enough to try a sour, but still want to give your taste buds a ride, a gose would be a great place to start. Plus, they’re amazing with a burger. Trust us on this…
