12oz. can purchased at the Spokane Valley Total Wine for $2.49. My first Gose.

Poured into a Jever pilsener glass, this was initially a bright gold color with a big, fizzy, noisy white head that dropped rapidly. After a couple of minutes, the beer took on a more hazy look, but never came close to the cloudiness I expected to see after reading the definition of Gose on BA. No lace, and virtually no sign that there had ever been any head, let alone the dramatic one brought on by the pour.

Coriander and mineral water – that’s what it smelled like. Not normally my idea of what a beer should smell like, but I'm new at the Gose game.

More interesting in the taste, but not massively so. Basically, this seemed like a cross between a really dry lemonade and a Belgian witbier. I was expecting the dryness, but was hoping there’d be more flavor to offset it.

Light bodied, with a dry, crisp mouthfeel.

Interesting, but not something I can say I’ve fallen in love with. If it had a little more character besides it’s dryness, I might be more into it. At least it’s something different than the million or so blonde ales that so many brewers are putting out this time of year.

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
