Anderson Valley Brewing Company Briney Melon Gose – Gose at 4.2% ABV

Anderson Valley Brewing Company Briney Melon Gose – Gose at 4.2% ABV (C$4.25 at Collective, 355 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 26-Mar-2021, reviewed 8-Apr-2021)

Appearance: slightly hazy straw with two fingers of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate stringy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: watermelon Jolly Ranchers, wheat, light brine. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high tart, moderate sweet, light brine, very low bitter. (7/10) Palate: light body, moderate-lively carbonation, off-dry tart and slightly salty finish. (3/5)

Pretty much what it says on the label: melon, briny. Unfortunately, however, the melon is not overly authentic, reminiscent more of artificially flavoured candies than the actual fruit, especially in the finish. An OK thirst quencher at best. (13/20)
