Picked this up when I saw it because it is hard to find a Gose. Hoped it could measure up to Lost Nation Gose. Not a great appearance, kinda light with a decent head. Smell is actually bad, not something that gets you going for the beer. But the taste is excellent, sour and tart and even a little sweet. You notice the salt but it is faint, would have preferred a little more saltiness. An excellent thirst quencher as I had this in the heat on a boat. Overall an excellent beer and finally a Gose that I may be able to buy with some regularity.

Center poured from a can into a shaker pint glass.

Very clear pale golden color with a puffy, delicate 1" white head. The head dissipates fairly quickly, though I think that's not unusual for the style. A little spotty lacing.

Pleasant, tangy wheat grain on the nose. Fairly strong raw/earthy sea salt, followed by kind of a lemon pepper note. A little faint but nice, inviting.

Moderately tart with a lemony twang, closely followed by that nice raw sea salt. Ends with a really nice briny/dry/tart finish, slightly earthy and bitter, very refreshing. Peppery coriander is noticeable too. Everything works together well.

Light, slick texture, very drinkable. It could stand a touch more carbonation but it's good.

A tasty beer, not quite traditional but not far off. I particularly like the sea salt presence.

"The refreshing tartness in this divine, bright golden-colored ale gives way to earthy undertones and hints of citrus followed by a slight sea salt-like dryness and tangy, effervescent finish." Brewed in the style of a German Gose Beer, this is the latest addition to the Highway 128 Session Series of beers by Anderson Valley, available in 12 oz. canned 6 packs and on draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. can to a pint glass. Served above 54º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp fizzy head of a pale white color over a golden yellow body with mild haziness and spritely moderate carbonation. Retention is average at best and lacing is light but doesn't stick. 3

(Smell) Cracker malt, mild wheat with a subtle sweetness, a mild saltiness with a dash of lemon peel and floral hops with a mild bitterness. Coriander is common in Gose Beers, however I don't pick up on any spice in the aroma whatsoever. Potency is moderate. 3.5

(Taste) The flavor is the ultimate selling point of the beer. Expect moderate to assertive rough saltiness amongst a light soured wheat malt base, finishing with a parching fruit tartness and citrus rind finish. A pinch of biscuity grain drags the finish early on. There's no perceived coriander or spice to speak of in this beer, so the lemon and citrus rind come out quite strikingly well and without conflict. Very tasty, tangy and highly drinkable. 4

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, mildly tart and dry. Carbonation generates a soft frothiness for a moderately crisp, medium-soft mouthfeel. Body is medium for the style, light+ overall. Balance is boldly salty and tart over sweetness, parching and refreshing at the same time. Alcohol presence is very low to none and there are no perceivable off characters. 4.25

(Overall) Another solid Gose amongst the ranks of a reemerging popular German style, one that is both tart and salty with a nice hint of fruit and citrus amongst a lightly bodied malt base. The lack of spices such as coriander allows the subtleties of citrus and lemon to shine and enhances the lactic tartness that would otherwise be compromised. I'm not certain how it stacks up against German traditional Gose Beers or even Westbrook's Gose, but it's a solid entity of its own, and certainly worth a try for anybody who appreciates salty and tart beers, as it is respectably both of these qualities. The Kimmie, The Yink & The Holy Gose Ale is a top seller for the brewery locally here in Georgia, and at a fair price, a justified one as well. 4
