4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Big bottle shared with friends, Thanks Jason! Orange, pinkish red and cloudy appearance with a minimal, dissipating head. Fruity, tart and sour aroma with raspberries, light wine, oak, yeast, light spice and other fruity esters. Similar flavor with a nice puckering, carbonated feel and a chalky, dry finish. Pretty tasty.
