51-B. Leipzig-Style Gose

Leipzig Goses are straw to medium amber. Appearance is cloudy/hazy with yeast character, may have evidence of continued fermentation activity. Lemony or other citrus-like aromas are often present. Some versions may have the spicy aroma character of added coriander at low to medium levels. Horsey, leathery or earthy aromas contributed by Brettanomyces yeasts may be evident but have a very low profile, as this beer is not excessively aged. Hop aroma, flavor and bitterness are not perceived. Malt sweetness is not perceived to very low. They typically contain malted barley and unmalted wheat, and may contain oats. Salt (table salt) character is also traditional in low amounts. Body is low to medium-low. Traditional examples of Gose were spontaneously fermented, similarly to Belgian-style Gueuze/Lambic beers; entries in this substyle should therefore exhibit complexity of acidic, flavor and aroma contributed by introduction of wild yeast and bacteria into the fermentation. A primary difference between Belgian Gueuze and German Gose is that Gose is served at a much younger age. Low to medium lactic acid character is evident in all examples as sharp, refreshing sourness. Gose is typically enjoyed fresh and carbonated. Overall complexity of flavors and aromas sought while maintaining a balance between acidity, yeast-enhanced spice and refreshment is ideal.
To allow for accurate judging brewer must provide supplemental information such as grains, salt or coriander if used and/or information about the brewing process. Beer entries not accompanied by this information will be at a disadvantage during judging.
