Anderson Valley Brewing's G&T GOSE is a riff on the famous Gin & Tonic. The can notes this beer is brewed with Natural Flavors, while their website suggests you might taste some botanicals like lemon peel, juniper and lemongrass. 4.2% alcohol
Salty, lemony aroma. Same flavors to start, lemon and lime, spicy, botanical, floral. Definitely a gin quality though I don't pick out juniper. I think this beer style definitely lends itself to this botanical experiment. The tartness and sharp citrus along with a dry finish do give the perception of a G&T cocktail, though with considerably less alcohol kick! Refreshing, good idea. Check it out!
