Review: Freigeist Geisterzug Gose


Love the old time feel of the black and white photo on the label of this Spruce infused Gose from Freigeist.  Pours a hazy light yellow color.  This is one of my favorite styles that I first encountered by accident when I visited Leipzig (briefly) in 2006.  It has a light tart note in the aroma along with a slight woodsy tinge to it. Sweet tart is what first comes to my mind because the taste is light lemonade.  There is an acidic burst that flames out but is quite nice.  The bottle was gone very, very fast.  I will have to look for this the next time that I am in Europe so that I can compare a fresher version to the older, bottled type.
