Ale Mania - Gose

This weeks visit to the local bottle shop brought a german Gose into my fridge. The label reads, among the usual suspects, coriander, sea salt and lactic acid. It doesn't however list wheat as an ingredient.
The bottle overcarbonated. Great head. Smells like coriander. Very funky taste, slight clove aroma. Tart but mild sourness overall. Characteristically hopped at 14 IBU.

Compared to some belgians (oude geuze specifically) the aroma components could be more varied. Ale Manias Gose is bright and floral, I like more complex sour beers. Let's hope we get more sour beers from german brewers.

Rating: 4 points out of five.
