BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anderson Valley Brewing Company
California, United States
avbc.com

Style: Gose

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
With a bright, golden color and tight creamy head, the earthy wood undertones in our Gose develop into a light mineral aroma with a hint of lemon zest and tropical fruit. Before boiling, the wort is kettle soured with lactobacillus, imparting an initial refreshing tartness that gives way to a subtle fullness. Flavors of guava and peach are followed by a slight sea salt dryness and lemon sourness that is enhanced by coriander and post-fermentation additions of salt. The finish is dry, effervescent, and lemon tangy, reminiscent of a fresh sea breeze.

Light straw body. Fast dissipating head. Sorry if people like it, but the smell reminds me of puke. The vomit smell you get when you drink to much cheap booze. Taste is similar. Do not like it at all. Reminds me of drinking too much and getting sick back in highschool.

This tasted disgusting right out of the can.

I have liked other canned beer from Anderson Valley, and was excited to try this one. It smells alright, like bread, which other reviewers have commented. However, the rest of the flavors: wet carpet, followed by lemon cough syrup and salt water, were wretch-worthy. It's become a household joke, since anyone who has tried it has also found it to be terrible. The majority of each of the six cans in the pack have ended up in the drain, where it belongs.

I hope for better next time.

Simply put, this is the worst gose I have ever drank. I have to believe that anyone who loves this beer and judges all other goses not sour/salty enough simply doesn't know what a true gose is supposed to taste like. I seriously believe that sessioning too many servings of this beer could cause hypernatremia.

Considering this beer is so salty, I don't see how anyone could enjoy crushing serving after serving: the complete opposite experience of what a gose should be. I highly recommend finding better alternatives.

I am not a fan of sour. In my humble opinion, any sour flavor does not belong in my beer. I drank enough to get a legitimate taste of this beer, but could not fathom more than a couple ounces total.
