Bomber. Pours clear deep rd amber with a shortlived small off white head. Aroma is sweet vinous berry bubblegum sour raspberries marzipan, very nice. Flavor is gentle from first sip, yet very flavorfull. Acidy sour raspberry in front, sweetness comes out in the middle with acetone notes and more tartness yet keeping the gentleness of the beer and the raspberry flavor. Dryish berry and slightly bitter finish wich leaves a longlasting good balanced aftertaste.

Bottle, pours a nice reddish, aroma is very sweet and full of rasp. The flavour is very very sweet, prob a bit too much for my liking, I wouldnt be able to drink a full bottle of this by my self. A bit sour but not too much, overall pretty good

Flaske: Årgang 2011. Let lyserød med et fint skumhoved. Duften er tydelig hindbær, men med en smule blåbær. Meget lækker. Det sure fremgår også, men det er helt klart hindbærrene der er i førersædet. Smagen er fantastisk frugtet af en hindbærøl at være. Superlækker.

Aroma was sour, dark fruit and wine. The taste was mostly sour with some heavy red wine characteristics. Honestly, it’s one of my least favorite goose island beers.

Pours a deep red with a little golden hugh as the light shines through. Quickly dissipating white head with a good deal of carbonation. Great fruity sweet aroma with a little bit of spice. You can really taste the sweet raspberries on this one, with a bit of sour poking it’s head out right at the end of the tongue. Overall, another great beer from Goose Island. Had this one back to back with Juliet, and though I must admit, Juliet seemed to be a more complex beer, I think I liked this one better; a little sweeter with that extra .3% abv wins me over.

Tallahassee, Fl - at drowland’s 7/7/12 going away tasting party - thanks to colemanzuber. Ruby red pour, tan colored head. Aroma of sour cherries. Excellent puckering sour notes, sweet tarts and cherries, hint of vinegar. Thick, tart lively mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.
