The River Gose has flowed from the Harz Mountains and through the town of Goslar in Lower Saxony for a very very long time. As the area is extremely rich in minerals, and especially salt, it is natural that the river carried them into the local groundwater supply. Meaning that the water drawn from wells by the brewers of Goslar was a little salty. They added coriander to balance the flavour and Gose remained a very popular speciality in the region until it became all but forgotten in the mid 20th century with the popularity of pilsner and weissbier. Recent years have seen a huge resurgence of interest in the style with brewers all over the world creating their own versions. With Freshie, Nomad strived to retain the flavour of a traditional Gose top fermenting with German ale yeast, light malts, Willamette hops and coriander. The Australian character comes from saltwater taken from Freshwater Beach (3km from the brewery) and Tasmanian Pepper Berries. It is a delicate, light, dry and extremely refreshing beer. As you drink more, you'll notice more citrus, spice and earthy flavours.
