UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Bottle pours a thick orange with a light white head. The aroma is very sour, and sweet lite notes of oak. The taste is pretty bitter and very sour. Very wet in the finish. A great sour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 8.2% ABV. Pours the rich hazy copper orange with no head that is typical for the style. Smell gives me rich berry and light funk. Taste is a bit mild -- sour and fruity but not powerfully on either count. Well-balanced and enjoyable but not particularly memorable for me.

(Bottle) Burnt orange body, medium quickly disappearing head. Sour berry aroma. Blackberries are noticeable in the flavor, during tartness but not overly strong; nice balance, sweet and dry. Medium body, a little sticky, and moderate carbonation.

Really nice vinegar smell. A little bubble gum In the aroma too. Big tart and acidity right up front. Stays on the back of the mouth. A big berry flavor also. Leaves the big feeling on your teeth from the sour. I really liked this one.

Spice , funk and ripe fruit nose. Definite sour tartness followed by ripe berry fruitiness and mellow spices. So well done

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
To me, the best of the GI sisters. Bottle shared by Jeff. Aroma of fresh berry, funky cheese, vinegar and lemon zest. Pours hazy light peach with a great champagne bubble to it but no head to speak of. Taste is full and funky but super tart. Tart berry, red wine vinegar, apricot, stilton cheese, and pear. The oak comes through just a litte. This is a great blend of funky and tart and a near perfect wild ale. Love this one.
