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.

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.

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.

L) Pours a lovely rose tinted light peach color, like a rose wine. Lovely

S) The aroma is tart and grainy. You can definitely get notes of raspberry and wild strawberry, and the acid cuts any real sweetness that would be perceived.

T) Lovely crisp acidity, with forward red fruit, light salinity and graininess on the finish. A lingering lactic acidity is pleasant and refreshing.

F) Very crisp and refreshing, light bodied, and highly carbonated. Good for style.

O) Looks and tastes great, lovely for any rose lovers or anyone who thinks mass produced framboise lambics are a bit too sweet.

Yep!

What is this! A pink like golden color from the pour with a super crackly white heade of soft foam that dies off quickly.

Smells of refreshing floral sweetness.

Sweet bitter and tart all come out on the taste. A bit of salinity on the taste as well.

Mouth feel is light and tart. Puckering towards the back end. And maybe a bit sticky on the back of the throat.

Another good Gose from Anderson Valley. Seems like these guys always get these beers right but just with some odd additions. This one really works for me.
