Aroma was sour, dark fruit and wine. The taste was mostly sour with some heavy red wine characteristics. Honestly, itís 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 itís 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.

Wow! First off, I think I liked this more than Juliet, which many might not agree with. Color is a deep red, but still translucent and clear. Aroma is of brett and oak. Can definitely taste the raspberries, very fruity, oaky. Brett really comes through in a good way. Nice tartness dries the palate at the end. Very nice sophisticated beer. Would be interesting to see how this ages.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red-amber in color. Aroma of raspberry/strawberry funk with a lactic sour tinge. Flavor of tart strawberry, more so than raspberry, with light vanilla creme finish. Some malted wheat. Moderately sour in the beginning, which trails nicely. A bit acidic. Didnít come together for me as much as Juliet.

Bottle. Poured a clear reddish copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart fruit flavor with a medium to heavy tart & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Bottle shared at the GTMW ticket line, sorry, canít remember who brought this. Pours an amber/red with a nice off white head that is gone before you know it, the aroma has a good amount of funk and vinegar mixed in with the raspberries, the flavor has a very nice tart front end with a fruity yet funy finish with raspberry, solid sour all around.
