Pours a clear ruby with minimal head and little lacing. Aroma of raspberry, strawberry, white grape. Mild hint of herbal hoppy flavor. Moderately sweet and very tart. Medium tart finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly chewy mouthfeel. This is a good sour ale, puckery. Not my bag, but I would say well done given what it is.

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.

ebone1988 (1256) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2016
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.

(Goose Island Lolita) Draft at the BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Bright red colour, crystal clear, with a small off-white head on top, average retention. Aroma has lots of flower notes, hibiscus, rose petals. Nicely sour taste with lots of floral notes and cranberries/raspberries. Medium thin body with good carbonation. Nice one.

Pouring a rosy amber with very little foam, Lolita from Goose Island is an olfactory delight straight from the crack of the cap. A light aroma white grapes and raspberry is punctuated with light yeasts; funky but not overpowering in the slightest. - a first sip is sour, with a sweet, berry-filled accent as I inhale. The carbonation tingles at the tip of my tongue, powering a tart experience, and as the beer fills my mouth it drives the fruits and grassy, funky flavor to permeate my tastebuds. Certainly mouth-watering, the vinous brew is a study in complexity, combining the beauty of light wines, fresh fruits, and yeast. - The finish is quite dry, without the intensity of a desert. Just a clean, fruity back end, leaving little of the yeast to tear apart the next berry-laden quaff. - My bottle, labeled 2013, is delicious. The cost to try it again does not scare me. This is a brew I will want to share with friends...expense be damned.

Alphadelic (2128) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Picked up a growler is this bad girl for $15. Ridiculous. Now it’s not my favorite sour of all time but it is very deep and complex. Amongst all the overt sourness lies this hint of over steeped black tea. There’s a big fruity hit to it also, peach and cherry. Vanilla too, plays a large part in it. This is good quality, well judged sour making.

bierkoning (12176) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2016
From Bottle @ Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016. Reddish Amber color. Raspberries in the vinous aroma and flavor. Candy. Sour and complex. Too matured to be called Lolita, this beer.
