Tart, dry, refreshing. One of my favorites to drink at any time.

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden yellow with a half finger of white head. Retention is sub-par, resulting in a broken layer of suds and a thin ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell - Salty with light citrus and hints of Bazooka Joe bubblegum.

Taste - Hmm. Certainly a lemony tartness throughout and with a salty finish. The subtle flavors are harder to describe, but there's a faint underlying malty sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with crisp, bitey carbonation. Dry, champagne-like finish.

Overall - It's good. Think I liked their Blood Orange Gose slightly better. These brews are just so dang tart that it's tough to put down more than a few at a time.

12 oz. can crash cooled and poured into a Flying Dog goblet (7th Day of Christmas)

A: Transparent copper color. Pours with a slight head but in the end, there is no collar or lacing at all.
S: I still have a head cold, but the smell is light and of a slight salinity.
T: Just a lightly tart and salty gose, that goes down easy and is quite simple, but in a good way. Maybe it just hits the spot, but I prefer this to the Westbrook Gose that I had a few weeks back.
M: Nice bit of carbonation that is almost indistinguishable from the salinity. The blend very well together.
O: Good stuff that I thought was a one-off or rotating, some reason, but it seems to be year-round now. Now to nab some of the fruited variants.

This tasted disgusting right out of the can.

I have liked other canned beer from Anderson Valley, and was excited to try this one. It smells alright, like bread, which other reviewers have commented. However, the rest of the flavors: wet carpet, followed by lemon cough syrup and salt water, were wretch-worthy. It's become a household joke, since anyone who has tried it has also found it to be terrible. The majority of each of the six cans in the pack have ended up in the drain, where it belongs.

I hope for better next time.

Very drinkable brew. Not going to jump up and down for it but worth the money
