3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Donker amberkleurig bier met weinig of geen schuim. Ruikt als een Vlaams oud bruin bier, melkzuur en wat fruitig. De smaak is aangenaam zuur met een bitterig droge afdronk.

Bottle. Pours Golden / Orange color with thin head. Aroma reminds me of a sparkling wine or champaign. Taste is highly carbonated and sour up front with a fruity barrel finish. It’s pretty tart but very good.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow. This beer is like drinking champagne, beer, and sparkling wine all at once. The amount of carbonation is a little off-putting, but the taste is rich with raspberries and drinking it allows you to appreciate the process involved in making it. Really cool beer.
