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.

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--

Orangey-pink, with slight , but moderately persistent white head.

Smells of dried raspberry , and the lactic sour-fresh aroma, typical of goses.

Taste follows nose , with lingering jammy sourness, and slight drying bitterness, and cracker (wheat) on finish.Maybe a very tiny bit of saltiness , after everything else is gone.

Feel is light , with very fine carbonation tingle on the finish, that lingers for a bit.

Overall, another good gose from Anderson Valley. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Just when I was getting burnt out on the holy gose and blood orange,here this one comes along and reminds me why I love Anderson valley. This beer is readily available at most of my local bottle shops and is not hard to find. Smell is light funk, taste is a mild raspberry tart and so light it’s almost like drinking a sprite. Great beer, grab it if you see it!

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.

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.
