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.

Great lemon/lime gose. Anderson Valley is one of my favorite companies for all gose and I like the fact that I can find it pretty easily here in my area. Slight head and carbonation, tart lemon lime taste. Has a good bite but not overly sour. Great gose!

Light gold/yellow color,just above average carbonation. Aroma was malt,hops,yeast,but dominated then by a lemon,lime,fruit zest smell. This was a great gise as it was tart and sour but not overly so,it went to the point of being pleasing but not throat closing sour. The fruit,and fruit peel really came through exceptionally well in this beer

Poured from a can into a Lagunitas mason glass

L: Clear light golden pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Nice rim of lacing.

S: Lemon and funk... tart citrus and stone fruit.

T/F: Light and crisp. Tartness without being super sour. Lots of lemon and citrus mixed with funk. Other fruity notes like peach are more subdued. Well carbonated. Finish is tart with some fruity sweetness. A dash of salt makes you take another sip.

O: A nice light gose. Similar to the other Anderson Valley Goses I've tried.... nice for warm weather.

This beer is tasty fresh. When I acquainted myself with this gose brew I found it to be not as puckery as some of the other sour beers. The finish is clean, and refreshing like a cool bath.

This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a semi-clear bronzed yellow color with a light transparency about it. Streams of carbonation rise to fill a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about forty seconds. Concave lacing sticks to the glass nicely. The smell starts off with a refreshing citrus, coming across slightly tart and having a crisp sweet edge to it. The taste takes the citrus and gives a nice sour to sweet to tangy edge leading into a semi-refreshing quick citrus aftertaste leading into a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sits about a light on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The sour could be over-doing it for some people, but feels fine to me, somewhat tamed by the salty finish. Overall, a crisp bright Gose, worthy of coming back to.

Straw yellow colour with a good head of foam. Smell of lemon, malt and pepper. This is my first Göse, so the taste took me some sips to get used to (I expected the salt, but not the sour). Quite sour, with hints of lemon, sourdough and yogurt. A subtle saltness at the end of every sip. Aftertaste is dry. This beer's taste (minus the salt) also has some vinous qualities, reminiscent of a young white wine like the Portuguese vino verde. Very refreshing: the low abv makes it very suitable for hot summer days. Nice stuff.

It starts with sour and tart followed by earthy hops and it's ends with malt.

Taste Rating in Words: It's a circus there are three rings, flames, animals, flying humans, and clowns. . . So many clowns
