Beer Review: The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose

Reviewing The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose from Anderson Valley Brewing Company, Boonville out of Boonville, California.

Score: 78

Forgot to check the canning date. Served in a mini nonic pint glass and enjoyed on 10/12/14.

Appearance: Pours a translucent, dull dandelion/gold wheat color with a finger of fizzy soda like head that quickly and completely settles. Clean, effervescent appearance. 3.5/5

Smell: Sour grain, corn, lemon and doughiness. A touch of funk. Pleasant. 4/5

Taste: Tart/sour grain/malt upfront followed by sea salt and a hint of lemon upfront. Finishes with sweet corn/grain and little plasticky funk on the finish. I did not care for the finish. 3/5

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, amply carbonated. Has a good sour bite upfront followed by a sweet and salty middle/finish. Really pleasant, save for the lingering plasticky corn funk. 4.25/5

Overall: A poor man's alternative to Westbook Gose, akin to settling for Alltech's Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout in lieu of Bourbon County Brandy Stout. It will do the job, but it is no substitute.

Cost: $5 for a 12 oz can (bar price).
