THANKS for sharing RB people! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ outside De Bierkoning during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016! Some of their sister beers of Goose Island aren’t that great & plenty of the new vintages were lesser, overly sour etc. compared to what I remember them being. This one was just wonder as fitting for a show as phenomenal as the X-Files. Hazy orange with basically no head. Nose is big strawberry, honey, faint apricot, huge fruit & light honey. Taste is awesome strawberry, fruit is vibrant and lively, sweet upfront, sweet strawberry with honey leading into a complimentary sour, lightly puckering, this has balance, amazing fruit etc. this one & Halia are the ones that you need.
