This one sure is Sour. It comes out of nowhere. But I suppose if you read the deScription, then it comes out of somewhere.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light orange with a tint of pink. An incredibly strong "in your face" raspberry aroma with some yeas and strong alcohol. Very tart flavor with sour raspberry, some wine and spices. A lingering sweet raspberry flavor. I don’t normally like sours or fruit beers, but this was definitely a very good one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lots of raspberry on the nose along with wood barrel, lemon notes, and some acetic vinegar. Pours reddish, pink head thins out, seltzery and fizzy looking. Bright raspberry on top of a good deal of vinegar. Lingering super sour raspberry. Fresh and bright raspberry but the acetic notes take away from this being really good.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Chicago 1/31/16 (765 ML 2015 - 7.8% ABV, Bottled on 8/18/15,poured into a tulip glass). Cloudy reddish orange pour, thin white head faded fast, minimal lacing. Pleasant raspberry scent, with mixes of vinegar and grapes. Very Sour and tart raspberry taste, with a very heavy vinegar presence, about as foreboding and repulsive as the old man in that book by Nabokov. Well bodied with firm texture, very dry and crisp finish. This was a little too sour for me, perhaps I should have let it sit another year or two. Drank about half the bottle. Much preferred Madame Rose over this Goose Island offering.

Appearance- Deep golden with a reddish tint, Average head with average lacing.
Aroma- Tart raspberries, caramel, almost a vinegary scent.
Flavor- Very tart, raspberries really hit you out of the gate, not much sweetness to it, not much alcohol detected either. very dry and acidic, slight touch of oak at the end.

Bottle pour at Cask and Vine.
Deep amber color, small quickly dissipating white head. Huge vinous tart fruit notes with bits of earthy funk and hints of balsamic. Tasty sour, also worked wonders cleansing my palette between some thick chewy stouts.

Bottle. Cloudy burnt orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is zesty citrus, tart with some tropical fruit. Taste is nicely sour, well balanced, really tasty with light berry notes. Delicious.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at York River Landing, ME. Extremely good. This is a very complex wild ale with a great yeast funkiness, a moderate amount of sourness, and really clean fruitiness. Reminiscent of the good Belgian fruit sours.
