3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not my favorite style but I felt it was worth trying at a bottle share to see what the fuss was all about. Pours reddish pink color with a fizzy white head that laces nicely. Nose and taste is tart with notes of cherries, spice, and wine. For those who enjoy this style I am told it is a great beer. For me, I can appreciate where they were going but its just not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour is a very hazy light red. The aroma is strong sour. A little more on the light side overall with the taste. Good for a sour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. bomber, 2009 bottled Aug 14, with a big thanks to FlssmrBrewAlum. Gushes on opening, with a ton of light pinkish white foam that settles down in a few minutes. Pours a cloudy rose color with a large fluffy pink-white head that lingers. Aroma is oak, grape skins, ripe fruits, and some dusty funk. Flavor is very mild, with more grape skins, oak, ripe dark fruits and only a hint of funk. Nothing too crazy here, but more subtle and light. A nice summer drinker with enough complexity to keep it interesting. Thanks again Adam!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing! We decided to dedicate this to Juliet on Lost and I think it fits aptly. Pours a gorgeous orange-pink-red with a white ring. Rich sour-tart aroma, of under-ripe fruit, wood, and yeast. Sour and crisp taste, of tart fruits, yeast, wine, and a hint of sugar. Lingering crisp sourness that ends a bit watery. Drinkable and quite nice.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Blah. Wish I had another bottle for saving to see if them wild yeasts would liven this thing up at all. Found it to be extremely bland-O. Light berry aroma and flavor, extremely dry, barely any noticeable sour or tartness. Just felt dead to me. Blah.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The taste is incredible but extremely restrained. The backbone is vinous, but not terribly acidic or overbearing. Then suddenly flavors of freshly mashed tart blackberries start to bleed through, leading to one of (if not) the cleanest finishes Iíve ever experienced. Finish is incredibly crisp, dry, but refined from the oak. The whole thing just works.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer had a very tasty blueberry flavor along with the tartness of a sour. Flavor was still bright and well balanced. Nice clear color, good carbonation, and a tasty sweet finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber, shared. Pours what looks like a ruby red in the low light of the bar (could be wrong, maybe itís lighter), with a small head. Aroma is largely wild yeast with a bit of sour cherry and light fruit detectable as well. Taste is fruit and citrus up front, with a vinious characteristic, and the beer has a wonderful sour/tart finish. It remains clean, it does not get overwhelmed by any of the flavors, and the alcohol is well-hidden. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer; another winner from Goose Island.
