We have had this brew before on The Less Desirables but man, I never can have it too much. This beer is tart and salty and stout, but it’s not heavy and it’s not overpowering. It’s a whopping 4.2% ABV so it’s very light. It has a great golden color to it and the body is filling yet not too much. This is a really great beer.

BeerAdvocate has it at 3.93/5 (Very Good), which I think is pretty darned good. Untappd has it at 3.77 caps out of 5 which I also think is fantastic. I rated it 5 out of 5 because as far as Goses go and especially for this particular flavor, this is as good as you can get!

Have you had it? What did you think? If you’ve not had it or just have a hankering for more, head over to City Beverage and grab your sixer of this delicious beer.

Listen to this week’s The Less Desirables podcast, available now HERE, and hear what Danielle, Bethany, B Cole and I think of it.

Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
Scorp out!

“Born from our passion for experimentation, our Briney Melon Gose boasts a thirst-quenching tartness that is perfectly balanced by subtle watermelon flavors and aromas.  Gentle additions of sea salt create a refreshing harmony between the acidity and fruity sweetness leading to clean, dry finish.” – Anderson Valley Brewing Company
