UPDATED: OCT 13, 2009 Bottle @ Cuvee de Castleton release. This sour just pushed my anticipation of the release. Really nice sour, will ry to get my hands on a bottle of my own. Many different flavors that come together well.

Shared by VFerg. Thanks. Light tart easy drinking fruity kinda thing going on. Very sessionable. Not a whole lot there though in the flavor department. Consumed next to Sophie which I felt was a better crafted beer.

Sampled at Noog 5. One of the various sour beers I was lucky enough to taste. Orange/red grapefruit like color with a bit of hazy and a wispy head. Bready aroma with hints of fruit and tartness. The flavor is nicely tart as the aroma suggests but not particularly strong. Just a remnant of peach and strawberry like notes with a wet finish. Pretty good overall.

Big thanks to the Goose Island people for bringing this to Des Moines Brew Fest. Pours a nice hazy pink with some odd perfectly round floaties, berry seeds? Weird yeast? I have no idea. Aroma has some berries, they used blackberries eh? I guess that seems about right, I caught some raspberry in the aroma, along with plenty of funk and oak and a little vinous character. The flavor is dry and sour with a nice fruitiness from the berries, itís funky and tart and beautiful. I need more of this.

Bottle, courtesy fishingnet. Reddish pour, creamy white head and thick lacing. Nose is tart, some cider, nice dry hay touch. Lactic, acidic, etc. Flavor is big tart cherries, smooth acidity. Very drinkable.

Thanks to fishingnet for this one! Light, tart and fruity. Nose is slightly funky and lactic berries. Flavor is subdued and slightly watery. It is a good flavor, I just wish there were more of it. Sour berries, mostly.

Light peach/cherry color with lite fizzy head. Sour cherry aroma. A sour dry cherry/berry flavor dominates. A tad thin but still an excellent beer.
