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.

12oz can poured into a stange
A: Pale orange with a one-finger head that quickly settles
S: Mostly grain with a bit of lemon
T: A nice tart hit up front, mostly lemon, followed by a light grainy body then a somewhat long, somewhat sour finish
M: Light-bodied, crisp and sour
O: Not the most complex I've had, but enjoyable nonetheless

Much clearer and paler in body than I thought it would be; figured it would be a little more cloudy than it is.
Sour aroma almost wine like.
Has that sour, tart flavor you would expect, but not picking up on any salt. Tasty and super drinkable.
That typical low abv (4.2%) for this style and lower carbonation makes this a decent beer.
Glad I could find this one after having the Blood Orange variant, which I thought was really tasty too!

Pale straw adjunct lager appearance. Weak head on the pour performs a rapid disappearing act leaving nothing behind.

Grainy aroma with citrus and sea salt.

Rice-like grain flavor. Moderate salt with a squeeze of lemon. Very mild tartness.

Light body. Semi-dry finish. Well carbonated and very easy to drink.

Touches on some of the positive qualities of a gose but lacks depth in my opinion.

On-tap at Calgary Craft Beer Market.
Pale straw yellow color, thin layer of foam. Minimal retention or lace.
Aroma of some grains, yeast, lemon, and salt.
Slightly sour taste, almost a hint of lemonade. Good dose of saltiness. Tart finish.
Thin and light body, quite easy to drink, but you don't want to chug it. Lots of carbonation, dry finish, easy to drink (once you get used to the style).
