Bomber from Liz. Pours lightly ruddy copper with a fizzy transient head. Aroma is dark berry with oak and sour aspects. Med + body. Flavor is very, very tart sour. Lots of dark berry and some brett and some oaky wood, and some vinosity. Wish I’d saved this one to share. Fkin nails the style. Tannins and red grapes abound. God bless InBev for not screwing this up. Barnyard rules.

Tmoney99 (12733) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle shared at Noogfest High 5. Poured a hazy dark orange copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with virtually no lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

mcberko (11165) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear ruby red with a small off-white head. Aroma of blackberries, raspberries, dark fruits, some wood tannins, and red wine barrels. Flavour is fairly tart, but also very juicy, full of blackberries and raspberries, wild yeasts (definitely some brett in there), and subtle use of the cabernet wine barrels to accentuate the complexity. Very complex, with a very refined mesh of flavours. My favourite of the Goose Island sour ales. Excellent stuff - very sophisticated.
