2012. pours a dark pinkish hue with lots of bubbles, no head really. Aroma is good and tart, oak vinegar and a bit of berry, good funk factor. Taste is about the same, sweet raspberry for a minute then goes to into tartness with lots of oaky tones, berry and vinegar, dry pucker finish, this is a nice sour, would like to buy another bottle to cellar.

22 oz bottle. Not bad here Goose Island. This is pleasant sour overall with some good complexities. The aroma really isnít too far off from a pinot noir as alluded to in the description. Fruity berries, wine grapes, slightly nutty, and wood combined in a fairly mellow fashion. On the pour, big, bountiful fluffy almost pinkish-white head, that clumps to the sides, a cloudy body, and passion fruit colored. Very light on the tartness for a sour, and much more on the fruity sweet side on things though not terribly intense all around. Flavor notes here of mixed berries, melon fruit, light tangy grapefruit, a light nutty oak, and minor spiced funky sour. A pretty even delivery of sweet and sour throughout. I think this was significantly better than the Sophie in terms of GIís new belgian styles.

(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.

2013 bottle, 8.0% abv on the bottle. Reddish burnt orange with a fizzy semi pink head that dissipates quickly. Nose is tart blackberries, funk, oaky wine. Taste is very tart; sweet wine start, tart blackberry that finishes a bit sweet with lots of oak. Very wine like finish, but the tartness sticks around as well. Really nice.

22oz bottle served in the new style Boulevard Chalice. Poured a pretty reddish orange with a quickly dissipating head. A little Brett in the aroma also some berries. Decent amount of sourness. A little sweetness. Light bodied. Some berry flavor. Nice sour pucker in the finish. Also subtle wood in the finish. Very easy drinking. I wish I had another bottle to age. Iíd like to see where this one goes.

Very good. Very expensive. Drank with Westmeister upon arriving in SSI at around 11:30 p.m. Pours hazy with white head. Fruit, earth, and wine scent. Live in the mouth. Just too damn expensive. Go with Le Terroir for about half the price. Bottle - Greenís Beverages - Atlanta, GA
