Gose (pronounced Go-za) are considered white beers as they contain up to 60% wheat malt. What sets them apart from a standard wheat beer is that they are seasoned with coriander and salt which gives it more body and mouthfeel. Originally brewed in the Middle Ages in the town of Goslar on the Gose river and later made popular in Lepzig, this crisp, tart and effervescent beer is becoming more popular in modern times.
