I am not a fan of sour. In my humble opinion, any sour flavor does not belong in my beer.

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 they belongs.

I hope for better next time.

APPEARANCE: A huge head foams up on this beer right away, even with a very careful and slow pour. It does not last long, however, it’s gone within 15 seconds. The beer itself is a very pale yellow and there are only a handful of bubbles beneath the surface, and by a handful I mean like seven or eight. There is no lacing at all.

SMELL: Very salty. I can’t smell much else.

TASTE: Apparently, I am very sensitive to salt because that is almost all I can taste at first. After a few sips some tart lemon develops with a strong bready flavor.

MOUTHFEEL: The Gose starts out dry, but builds in sweetness throughout the sip. It’s light-bodied and goes down easy.

OVERALL: I have a very hard time with the Gose style. This is one of the better examples I have tried however. I think the tartness and the fact that it wasn’t completely, 100% overwhelming in the salt department.

A big shout out to the super woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. This beer came gushing out of the can despite no agitation. Has a pale yellow color with a 2 inch head. Smell is very sour, some salt as well. Taste was not good. Very sour, tart, lemons, a bit salty as well. Feels light and sour in the mouth and while others may like this flavor profile, it's not for me. i didn't care much for this one.
