i still think the base anderson valley gose is really solid, but i have not been in love with a lot of the fruited variations on it, this might be my favorite iteration so far. the combination of the raspberries and the rose hips is super unique, gives it bright springtime floral and vinous elements, and works so well with the clean lactic sourness, which is quite prominent in the base beer. its only lightly pink, not as stained in color from the fruit and rose hips as i would have expected, and carbonated like a soda pop. the aroma is a touch sweet, really tangy, and with a light raspberry jam character to it, simple for what it is, i do get a flash of dry rose wine and a mellow summery perfume thing too, but not offensive in the least. the raspberries and rose hips are about on par with each other in the flavor, not too much more of one than the other, pretty natural on the raspberries, just a touch sweet in the middle but dried out by the end. lemony lacto and some serious brine, this finishes itself off nicely, more rose wine at the end, the hips and the berries together really sparkle in the later stages of this. wonderful carbonation, lots of sourness at the end, a really light body, really almost devoid of any real grain character, but this is a great spring beer, not overdone with the additives and really drinkable for a sour. well done!

12oz can - I'm sure that they had fun coming up with this one's name, especially if 'framboise' is pronounced in the manner of most English speakers.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale orangish salmon colour, with three chubby fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves some mountaintop snow line lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of raspberry puree, muddled domestic citrus rind, gritty and grainy cereal malt, white saltine crackers, and some rather mild earthy, musty, and floral hop bitters. The taste is grainy and crackery pale malt, rosewater, a faded smooshed raspberry essence, saline, and more well-understated herbal, leafy, and grassy green hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its palate-tickling frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and generally smooth, once you get acclimatized to the mild tart character here. It finishes trending dry, the raspberries holding on for dear life amongst the lingering graininess.

Overall - this is a pleasant enough version of the style, with the guest ingredients applied in cautious doses. Crisp, refreshing, and easy to put back as the temperatures outside start to feel a little more Spring-like.

The Anderson Valley team has come as close to perfecting the gose as any brewery can. Their flirtation with fruit and spice combinations have taken many twists and turns- all of them stellar in their own right.

Enter Framboise Rose: a pale mauve ale that sparkles in the glass similar to rosé wine except capped with a short but stark white froth. Its simple but sharp aroma is all about the tangy raspberry fruit that dances on a tart base of citrus, cider and white wine. Its taste is scantly sweet with hints of pulled candy, sourdough and wine cooler.

What sweetness does present itself on the early palate drifts away effortlessly on the middle. The fruit complement from fermentation lays a sour base of lime, lemon, crabapple and sour white grape and then the bolder overcast of tart raspberry provide a strong red berry flavor that sees of currant, cranberry and cherry with subsequent sips.

Light bodied, sour and sharp, the beer's acidity scrubs any thirst from the palate with ease. Highly crisp, clean and refreshing, the beer evades the palate without hardly a hint of earth, must or hay. Low bitterness allows the late palate to reflect a disctinctly sour taste that provides a short, simple and succinct aftertaste.

12 ounce can into tulip glass; no can dating, but is a recent release. Pours crystal clear pinkish golden/orange color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, fruit skin, cranberry, strawberry, lemon, lime, pear, green apple, red grape, rose, sea salt, coriander, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/acidic yeast, raspberries, rose hips, and moderate pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, fruit skin, cranberry, strawberry, lemon, lime, pear, green apple, red grape, rose, sea salt, coriander, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang, and light yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart raspberries, fruit skin, cranberry, strawberry, lemon, lime, pear, green apple, red grape, rose, sea salt, coriander, hay, straw, grass, wheat, cracker, light pepper/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, raspberries, rose hips, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; with a great malt/tartness and tangy fruit balance. Mild increasing pucker after the finish, but not overwhelming. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/sourness, tangy fruit, and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, bready/grainy/acidic/tangy/tannic, and lightly sticky/saline balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an excellent gose. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/acidic yeast, raspberries, rose hips, and moderate pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modestly acidic/tangy/tannic/drying finish. Not overly lactic or salty. Great balance between the Lacto, raspberries, and rose hips; with a solid pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. Fruit does not dominate the beer, still tastes like the style intended. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

Its so easy to try a new variety of this series since the base beer rules, every other variation has been good at worst, excellent at best, and they are plenty affordable. Normally, something rose might seem likely to trigger my traditional gender role and lead to a scoff, but not here, these guys bang shit like this all day in the paint.

Pours a pink color, feint straw yellow, all leading to an appearance that exudes femininity and a smallish 1/4" white head with a little bit of pink causing it to also be off white. Aroma popped good with the raspberries first and foremost, then it got a hint of salinity and wheat after that.

Taste also is a fresh raspberry punch in the mouth. Its not nuanced, its a raspberry blast, but very dry in execution. Good tart and kettle sour aspect going down right now. The rose hips and raspberries are very well utilized in this instance. Great stuff, would be very proud to be drinking this pink colored beer in the summer around a bunch of rednecks.

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.

Can. Pours pink. I am a sucker for colors or coloring. This is pretty good. Dry enough. Tart, light, and surprisingly straightforward. I could slurp back a few of these. Effervescent. Love me some raspberry. I think Anderson Valley does their goses quite well. All killer no filler.

Can:
This is right in line with many of the AV Goses in my opinion. A familiar malt profile upon which the additional flavors, sour, and salt can dance. This one might not be as sour as some, but the raspberry comes through with a light touch to the moderate tart/sour profile.

A near clear - maybe chill haze - rose with an orange/golden hue. Off white bubbles fill the glass to the rim before fading moderately slowly to a medium thick, loosely coupled bubble ring. This thins considerably once drinking commences, no lacing.

Nose is light cracker and wheat, reminiscent of other AV offerings, with a not overly distinctive raspberry aspect. The rose hips aren't coming to me, but may be combining with the fruit note to dull it without adding a distinctive note itself.

Berry is noted, and the tartness is at a moderate level. Not too puckering, there's a little tug at the back of the tongue and tingling of the sides. A fairly clean beer, it is easy drinking as I'd want it to be for a refreshing beer. A nice salinity level in back softens the beer nicely.

If you like other AV fruited Goses I don't think you'll dislike this one.
