Not bad at all. A little surprisingly murky.

Nose implies acidic fruity tones, which translate fairly well to the palate. Juicy melon notes are pretty well balanced, as the beer comes across salty, slightly sour, and just a little sweet. A very nice and refreshing Gose.

Briney Melon Gose brewed by Anderson Valley Brewing Company, with an ABV of 4.20% This Leipzie Gose pours out of a 12oz can into a pint beer glass a hazy amber color with a nice white head. There is also a nice amount of spotty lacing to this brew. It does stick to the side of the glass well. The smell is Rich and Clean with Melon, malts and grians. So far this is a nice inviting brew. Now for the taste, it is bitter, sweet but in a good way. You pick up on lots of melon an tartness in the taste of this brew. The body is a soild medium. If you are not a fan of sour brew, this is not the brew for you. This brew would go nice on a hot summer day. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, if you like sour, it has a nice balance to it. Like I said before it is bitter, sweet. The mouth feel is Bitter, Melon, Clean, Smooth, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Briney Melon Gose a 3.75 out of 5 . I would look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Anderson Valley Brewing Company, did a nice job with this Gose brew.

Briney Melon Gose | Anderson Valley Brewing Company. Poured from the can into a BBC perfect pint glass, the head's three fingers thick, with lateral lacing& a hazed light gold body.

Smells like honeydew,

Yep, this flavor is spot on. Not too sweet, right amount of tartness.

Medium light mouthfeel with mild carbonation,

Overall, I'll go ahead and rate Briney Melon Gose | Anderson Valley Brewing Company at a 4.5

Pours a very slight cloudy yellow with a one inch fluffy white head that settles quickly to a quarter inch and leaves little lacing. Smells of melon,sour and the ocean. Tastes of watermelon, sea salt, acidic/sour elements most notably lemon. Light bodied, highly carbonated, minimal bitterness. Tart and refreshing.

It’s a nice tart gose that I think would be much improved with a more Briney (salty) taste.

Effervescent, fluffy head quickly dissipates to nothing. Still quite carbonated in this slightly hazy, pale golden gose. Definitely pick up some watermelon and mustiness from the gose-style fermentation. Taste is sour with a good punch of watermelon. Quite easy drinking and refreshing for a hot summer day.
