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.

Poured from the tap into a 20 oz mug at the Taco Mac in Atlanta. The appearance is a pale amber yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is very similar to wine and has a strong citrus mix to it. The taste is sweet and tart with that citrus/wine flavor.

Be careful I once confused this with the once awesome (90s) IPA can, they're both purple!

Pours a cloudy yellow, soft white head 1/3", recedes quickly. Good salty presence, mild coriander after that in the nose.

Taste, whooo sour and salty. kettle soured and done well for what it is. A great hot weather beer or for around the pool. Drink more of these when golfing than about any other beer. The base works in all the variations quite well. Slight lemon aspect to it. Very hydrating. Still dry finish in the mouthfeel.

Gotta love the availability and cost on these. If it were more rare you'd definitely see a higher rating. These are so poundable, it almost seems like stuff that doesn't necessitate a Midwest pour gets dinged (Ding!) score wise from the stoobs.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus, floral, slight hops, wheat, and salt. Fits the style of a Gose. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus, floral, slight hops, wheat, and salt. Overall, simple, but tasty, and lacking in distinctness.

I've been drinking beer for about 4 years and thought I had a general idea of what flavors beer could throw at me. This beer proved I have a lot more to learn.

Look: pretty transparent golden with some light lacing and a two finger head.

Smell: minimal. Spur scent that alludes to its taste.

Taste: wow. I was not expecting this. Generally when I imagine the taste of beer, it's either bitter or sweet with some combination. The first sip caused my face to pucker like I'd just popped in a warhead. Right off the bat I thought I disliked it, but the more I drank the more I liked it.

Feel: very gentle, smooth, and crisp.

I really wanted to dislike this beer based on the first few sips but I find myself more and more intrigued with each sip. Definitely pick it up if you see it.
