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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Can

A: Reddish/pink color, clear, with a moderate white head that quickly forms a ring around the glass.

A: Tart, with a moderate raspberry aroma, grainy and slightly floral.

T: Raspberry fruit flavor. grainy with light salinity and faint floral bitterness. There is a light lacto sourness that lingers with a dry finish.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid; the beer is refreshing and pleasant and the addition of rose hips works well. However, the beer could be even better with a juicier raspberry flesh character.

12oz can, undated, poured into a 14oz snifter glass.

The beer pours a bright golden salmon color, pink and gold hues, fairly clear with a faint cloudiness and a fizzy pinkish white head that has minimal retention and yields no lace. The aroma is nice, tangy fresh fruit, bright raspberry, a bit of citrus, some saltiness, a hint of funk and pale grain. The flavors are good, bright citrus and berries, raspberry and lemon zest, some funk and floral character with a nice salty bite that doesn't make this overly tart or sour, light cereal grains. The mouthfeel is good, coating and lively light body, nice bubbly carbonation that is crisp without being too abrasive with a dry and tart finish.

Verdict: A pleasant adjunct Gose from Anderson Valley. It's bright and fresh with a nice salty kick that keeps things in proper balance. Very bright, very refreshing and easy going.
