Anderson Valley Brewing Company Blood Orange Gose
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Anderson Valley Brewing Company Blood Orange Gose.
From the Anderson Valley Brewing Company website: “Our Blood Orange Gose is a tart, refreshing wheat ale that is kettle-soured with lactobacillus and brewed with sea salt and coriander. However, unlike traditional versions of the style, ours features liberal additions of blood oranges during fermentation. This imparts tangy citrus notes that complement the champagne-like flavors, creating a complex and sessionable ale perfect for any occasion.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours an orange honey color with a white head and no lacing.
Aroma: Orange and other citrus scents, sea salt, berries, wheat and yeast funk.
Taste: Tart oranges, citrus, a touch salty, funky yeast and a bit of wheat.
Overall: Crisp, sour and light, Anderson Valley Brewing Company Blood Orange Gose is delicious. This 4.2% ABV offering is a beer I will pick up again and again. A perfect light and refreshing beer.
