Notes / Commercial Description:
By adding rose hips to the boil and fresh raspberry puree at the end of fermentation, this kettle-soured beer is a mélange of flavors and aromas. With a light ruby hue, subtle raspberry fruit notes greet the nose and fall soft on the palate; tangy, hibiscus-like flavors mingle with the salty tartness of gose to create a uniquely complex and refreshing drinking experience.

The beer pours out a pinkish rose color, with 1 finger of off white head----------- the aromas are of tartness, wheat, raspberry soda and grass/floral------------- the flavors start off tart with wheat, grass and watered down berry, the beer has a thin mouthfeel with a dry salty finish------------- overall this beer was good it was just one dimensional, I wanted to taste more raspberry it was just tart and dry that's about it--

A slight chill haze clouds an otherwise clear pale salmon body that has no head but a thin khaki ring.

Smell is raspberry and salty toast while taste is tart and tangy raspberry with toast, salted cracker, sea-like notes and a spritz of lemon through a light body with a light froth and a semi-dry finish.

Pours a soft, pale pink with a sudsy head, good carbonation. Aroma has very light raspberry along with the expected tart wheat. Seems a little bland on the tongue - certainly some vague berry flavor but doesn’t really coalesce. It is good, nothing is off about it, just lacks focus. Anderson Valley makes some great Goses but this one is missing something.

Looks fairly unimpressive - pink but not as striking as I expected. Taste is of fresh raspberries but again, not as fruity as I was hoping for. Finishes slightly salty and floral.

It comes in a clear pink color with a small off white fizzy head. The head retention is very short as is expected, but it doesn't die a way completely. A thin bit of foam lingers.

The nose is a moderate amount of fresh tart raspberry, not cooked or jammy. There is a ton bit of crackery wheat, and a note of hibiscus.

The palate is fresh tart raspberry upfront, which pushes all the way through to the finish. Thin wheat malt is crackery and ghost-like. The carbonation is pretty active and fizzy and moves the beer quickly across the palate; the beer is a bit thin and watery, but it's very refreshing/thirst-quenching and comes across almost like raspberry-flavored sparkling water. It's just mildly tart with low acidity, only a faint salinity, crisp on the finish and ending with a note of hibiscus, and slight lingering raspberry.

Overall, a solid raspberry gose. It's not as pungently raspberry-forward as I would prefer--in fact, it seems more restrained that their other goses--but it's certainly not a bad beer and is still quite enjoyable. It would be perfect in warm weather.

Nice and tart though lacking in salt. Definitely worth trying.
