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.

Appearance - Pours mostly clear, with a touch if haze, fair golden in color with a white, half-finger width head. Fizzy head dies to a barren surface,

Smell - Evident tart lime aroma with, oddly, some vomit character. Sorry to say it's there, but overall it's not terribly off-putting all things considered.

Taste - As the beer description says, it's a noticeable lemon-lime tartness. Still, you get that sour-stomach after-vomit punch that hits you due to the sheer sourness of this bitch. If it weren't for that, it wouldn't be terrible, but the fact that it conjures up those thoughts is all you need to know. Aftertaste is pure citrus acidity; like drinking the liquid out of those plastic lime containers I remember so vividly as a kid.

Mouthfeel - Light-bodied with bitey carbonation. Super sour, acidic punch which escalates in the finish, making it unpleasant to drink, much less want wish to continue.

Overall - As far as Goses go, this is the most sour, undrinkable one I've had to date. So sad after recently experiencing the BA G&T, which was phenomenal. I really wanted to like this beer, but the pure pain it enforces with it's sourness makes it impossible to ignore. Don't shy away from the BA version; that is actually amazing. This one is not.

One of my absolute go to Gose beers. Very light, refreshing lemon lime kind of taste. Finishes super clean, Anderson Valley has always been one of my favorite companies and this beer highly exceeded my expectations
