Appearance: pours with a tiny pink head that quickly dissipates, the beer is a hazy ruby color Aroma: raspberry, some funk, wood, whisky, really gets potent when you swirl it around Taste: raspberry sweetness, tart, the wood barrels really come thru, alcohol, lots of wine flavor too Palate: heavy mouthfeel, leaves mouth wet, soft carbonation, frothy Overall: this is a very potent beer, the wood and raspberry are very intense, has a nice froth to it too, makes you drink slow

750 mL that has a couple years age on it. Pours a reddish pink with a decent head and aromas of raspberry and funk. The nose (and the flavor, for that matter) is very good, but fairly straight forward. It lacks nuance that some of the more highly esteemed sours possess... more of an unripe raspberry tartness with a little bit of a yeasty character to it. Very nice, but doesn’t merit the price on the bottle.

Pours clear copper with a fast fading white fizz. Smells tart and fruity. Taste is tart, fruity, sweet, acidic, slightly woody. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and sharp mouth-carbonation, Goose Island Lolita finishes with a lingering sourness.

From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s house for the Epic Peach and Apricot debacle of a tasting that happened on July 9. 750 mL bottle. I’m not going to lie, I have no idea how in the hell this showed up. The pour is a bright reddish orange color with a small, egg shell colored head that fades away quickly. The aroma is very raspberry forward. There is a lot more sweetness here than I would consider tartness. There is a lot of yeast as well. The flavor is sweet raspberry and a tartness to it that doesn’t do well to cover up the yeast. The mouth feel is more of a syrupy medium body with a bright-ish carbonation and a lingeringly tart raspberry and a lot of dry vinegar. This one isn’t that good at all. Fuck.

Pours a clear rusty reddish color with a thin white ring. Nice crisp, tart, sour, aroma. Good crisp, clean tart taste with lots of sour cherries in the flavor. Very refreshing. Hides the alcohol very well. Very enjoyable.

At the epic peach/apricot sour tasting. Aroma is raspberries, yeast, slight tart, fruity. Appearance is red orange, white head, somewhat hazy. Taste is sweet raspberries, tart, funk, slight sour, yeast, dry. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, raspberry vinegar dry aftertaste. Overall, more sour than expected but just ok.
