For its price and incredible taste, this has to be one of the very best sessionable beers out there. Other breweries could certainly learn something from Anderson Valley with this beer.

12oz can poured into a Lagunitas mason jar.

The beer pours a very clear golden straw color with a few bubbles rising to the top of the glass where a nice, thick finger of white foamy head rests that has decent retention and yields a few soapy spots of lace. The aroma is pleasant, light lemon tartness, pale wheat, sea salt and coriander, simple but inviting. The flavors mirror nicely, plenty of lemony citrus and tartness, while the wheat is soft and anchors the beer well allowing the saltiness and the touches of spice play with the citrus, decently balanced. The mouthfeel is fine, very carbonated and prickly though it coats well but the finish is quenching, though lightly dry.

Verdict: A nice gose from Anderson Valley and probably the best option for a year round, widely available gose, though Troublesome from Off Color certainly gives this a run for its money. Still enjoyable during winter but this is definitely one of the best warm weather options out there.

I just tried this Gose beers this summer. This one is pretty good too me. Excellent thrist quencher after a long days work.

Pours a amberish yellow with nice swirling into the glass. Pour finishes with a 1/2 finger white head that dissipates quickly. To me the taste is wate...boom sour! The sour is very present, but not the only thing you taste. Really can't get over how easy to drink this one is. A 32 oz growler is gone within a few min. Good thing is it's also extremely light on alcohol, so quenching your thirst shouldn't kill you.

12 oz can. Pours hazy straw yellow with a big fizzy white headthat goes to a thin film and laces the glass some.

The aroma is lactic (slight butyric) wheaty malts and salt.

The flavor is sweet lactic fruit with some salt and tartness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, nice tart lactic fruit with a bit of salt. One of the better goses I've had. A nice refreshing summer beer.

Appearance: 3/4 inch head, high carbonation, gold yellow in color, clear

Smell: salt and wheat

Taste: big wheat, slight sourness, pilsner malt, and salt--especially on the finish

Mouthfeel: light body, sweet with prickly saltiness, medium-high carbonation

Overall: A solid, sessionable gose. Really appreciate the creativity in this one. I have had better in the style that have the salt a bit more pronounced, but this is a good beer that I wish I would have gotten a six pack of.
