Beer 72: Leipziger Gose
You get short and sweet tonight, folks. I just walked in the door at 9pm and dinner is my number one priority. It is followed closely by passing out wherever I land post-dinner. And that would be from exhaustion and not a bender.
Tonight’s beer is Leipziger Gose brewed by Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof. Umm, yeah. Does anyone else hear Charlie Brown’s teacher?
Gose is an old German style beer from Leipzig. It’s an unfiltered wheat beer made with 50-60% malted wheat. That creates a cloudy yellow color and provides a refreshing crispness and twang. This particular one is brewed with coriander and salt. Interestingly this is my second beer this month brewed with salt. Evidence here.
Until tomorrow, kids…
