Original Ritterguts Gose

type: Gose
origin: Borna, Germany
price: $6.50/500ml at Haus Staudt
ABV: 4.2%
NSP: 3.2

Mild/light/easy everything is the key to a successful gose, in my experience, and this is arguably the best of the style I've ever had.  As expected, it's mildly tart with a low body wheat base that's slightly sweet and fruity, with a tempered ABV.  It almost reminds me of a tart hard cider.   Either way it's just mother flapping delicious, and excellent fodder during the exciting Deflated-ball/Domestic-violence Bowl 2015, even if the NSP is absolutely horrible.
