Crisp, clean flavor, and well balanced. Not overpowering or overly salty, as I have found some american versions of this style to be. Would be a good session beer if you enjoy this style.

I have never had a gose. I have had the Eroica Sour Ale by Lagunitas. From what I read, I expected something more or less like a light sour ale. My expectation was met precisely. Also, I like it.

L: Love the can, and Anderson Valley's Moose Bear. Pours a lot like the Lagunitas brew mentioned earlier. Looks like a cross between soda and beer with that distinct viscosity due to the acidity. Golden orange-tinged body with white head that disperses rather quickly.

S: Lots of Brett character. Notes of Rhubarb, cranberry, white wine vinegar, lime, lemongrass, and black pepper, along with some malty notes that I didn't expect, which come across like golden delicious apples and Sourdough bread.

T: Taste is like the aroma, but sweeter and more malt-forward. Vinegar first, followed by sour lemon, lime, and rhubarb, then yogurt, which may just be my perception of how the flavor profile twists from sour to creamy, with some comforting sourdough bread with olive oil and a dash of black pepper, and a salty, briney finish, like a lime soaking in the dregs of a margarita.

F: I love the feel of sour beer. It just goes down so easy and smooth. I see why people call this a warm-weather style. I intend to drink much more of these in the future.

O: Unexpectedly, I love this just as much as the notably richer Flanders bruin I tried a few months ago. As with Eroica, it smells interesting, and somewhat appealing, but it tastes significantly better than it smells. This single can has certainly rekindled my interest in sour varieties of beer.

Almost clear golden color with white head. Aroma has the classic lemon/lime tartness but also other fruity and floral notes with a touch of pepper and cinnamon. Taste starts tart and lactic, continues with briney pickle juice, finishes dry and lemony. Medium minus body, medium plus carbonation. Although it has some extra ingredients, it tastes mostly like a traditional gose.

A - Light orange body, minimal white head. No real lacing.

S - Strong lactic sourness, a note of spice, with powerful funk.

T - Follows the nose, sourness, a bit of that gin, and a trailing acidity.

M - Brisk. Tart finish.

O - Another solid Gose offering from AV. Tasty.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Sunny golden with light haze and small head with tight bead
Smell is fruity citrus and subtle spice
The feel is tart with mild body medium carbonation and gentle spice with lasting tang
Taste is lemony lactic and coriander fruity spice mixture with a mild malt the lactic tang lingers long in the finish
Overall I think this is great for refreshment and is a clean but mild gose spice wise which makes it worthy of repeat tastes

GT Gose | Anderson Valley Brewing Company. Poured from the can into a pint glass, the head on this brew is one finger thick, with spotty lacing, and a pale gold body.

I smell tart and refreshing notes associated with this style.

The taste is nothing groundbreaking, just a nicely brewed gose with a crisp and clean finish.

Medium-light mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

GT Gose | Anderson Valley Brewing Company gets an overall 4 from yours truly.

Poured from a 12oz can into my Big Bend Brewing Co. pint glass. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thin white head that retreats quickly. The smell is the only thing that bothers me. It smells like a sour dish towel to me. The taste however is superb. Its unreal that a beer that smells so bad could taste so good. It is very crisp and tart and finishes with a hint of cucumber. This would be an excellent summer bbq beer. Beer leaves zero trace of lace. I will buy this again. Reflects the style very well.

Straw with a light haze, no carbonation, and 3 fingers of whipped cream head.

Smells like brine, sour like lemons, hints of coriander and fruit.

Very sour, like unsweetened lemonade, hints of coriander and brine, light fruitiness, and finishes with a soft, fresh dough like yeastiness.

Light, crisp, acidic body, with a little fine sand paper or kitten's tongue carbonation.

Excellent as far as it Gose. Love the taste, and the feel is also great. I got this online, and I'm enjoying it October 27th, in Thailand.

12oz can into snifter.

A: Pours clear light ginger ale color with a frothy thick bright white head that slowly faded into a thick rocky collar leaving chunky sticky lace down the glass.
S: Slightly salty minerally nose with hints of herbal botanicals and slight tart acidity over notes of crisp pale wheat.
T: Follows the nose with creamy wheat mixed with earthy and herbal botanical, a kiss of vanilla/caramel, and doughy yeast. Lingering notes of citrus zest and minerals.
M: Mouthfeel is super creamy and fluffy with a balancing kiss of acid. Carbonation has a soft fuzzy quality to it like hard candy with the fuzzy coating. Lightly tart acidic punch, but smooth overall.
O: Great combination of flavors and mouthfeel. Drinks very well. Botanicals are on point with a unique creamy mouthfeel.

GT Gose brewed by Anderson Valley Brewing Company, with an ABV of 4.20% This Gose pours out a nice light golden amber color with a small white head. There is also some thin lacing to this brew, it does stick to the glass. The smell is sour with grains and malts. You also pick up on some nice mild hops in the smell as well. Now for the taste, it is really tart with bitterness. You do pick up on grains and malts in the taste of this brew. If you are a fan or tart or sour brews you should look this one up. This brew would go nice on a hot summer day. The body of this brew is a solid medium. This Gose has a good balance to it for it style. The mouth feel is Tart, Citrus, Clean and Refreshing. Not the best brew I have had but not the worst. Overall I'm GT Gose a 3 out of 5. Was kinda looking for something a little different in this one. I would probably look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Anderson Valley Brewing Company, did a decent job with this brew. Like I said before it is a sour tart tasting brew.

Poured out a clear, golden yellow color with a small, thin white head of foam. It smelled of lime, tartness and hints of salt. Sorta tasted like a gin & tonic, but really like a lime gose.

Slightly hazy straw color. BIG fluffy white head; decent retention, nice lacing.
Smells kinda like honey, with a bit of lime. A little bit of a decaying fruit aroma.
Flavor is pretty meh. No juniper, which I expect when I hear G&T. Yogurty lactic quality. Nice sweet lime on the finish.
Surprisingly full mouthfeel for the ABV.
Overall, decent enough quencher, but not what I would have thought given the Gin and Tonic allusion.
