3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a tulip. Big thanks to stevefinny for this. 2010 vintage.
3.5 A: Lightly hazed peach color. Fizzy soda pop head that falls just as quickly as it forms.
4.0 S: Nose on this is quite pleasant. Great mix of fruity, acetic, and funky. Itís tough to say which aroma is the focus, so I guess Iíll say that the nose is codominant. Raspberry fruitiness, vinous grape, slight vinegar, rotting wood earthiness. Mustiness underneath.
3.75 T: Taste follows the nose. Raspberry, vinous grape, mix of acetic and lactic acids, outdoors and basement funk. Slight tannic astringency. Not much pucker in this, but enough funk to make up. Herbalness that comes off as slightly bitter.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Not a lot of spritziness in this, which is something I could use some more of.
3.5 D: Tasty beer that is good enough all around. Iíve yet to be impressed by a GI sour, but Iím never too disappointed.

Hazy reddish, burnt orange pour. Lots of seedy raspberry, earthy floral notes, cereal, and some tart funk. Flavor is Tart and earthy funk up front, fruity and planty notes and sweet and tart raspberries. Light, dry body, with a light, spritzy, sharp carbonation. Fantastic sour, tart, fruity and dry, perfectly refreshing and deeply entertaining.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber. Aroma sweet raspberry. Very sour & pretty sweet raspberry with some oak barrel in there. This is a pretty fantastic sour, raspberrys are my favorite and this plays to all their strengths. It tastes like 7% ABV sour candy. Whats not to like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy ruby orange with paperthin white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is raspberry, funk and brett. Thin mouthfeel with light rasberry flavor and nice tart finish. A very impressive sour from Goose Island.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle scored by Jstax Thanks ! Pours a ruby amber color with a trace of bubbles that settle quickly. The nose is funky raspberry right up front with wet wood and barnyard touches. The palate follows the nose with more complexity coming through in the mid to late palate... nutmeg, vanilla, unripe raspberry and vinous barrel notes linger with notes of chardonnay grapes.
