4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 1/17/16 Chicago (765ml bottle bottled 3/7/14 poured into tulip glass). Dark red/brown pour, moderate tan head with mild carbonation. Aroma of cherry and blackberries. Texture more like a carbonated wine. Nice feel with the flavor and significant carbonation. Taste of tart cherry and blackberries prevalent, nice mix of sweet fruit with sour taste, malt solid. Really enjoyed the strong variety of tastes. I enjoyed the entire large bottle more than I recall the original split offering. Glad I picked this second bottle up from Binny’s!
1/1/16 Chicago (765ml 2014 bottle split three ways). Dark red/brown pour, slight tan head which evaporated quickly with mild carbonation. Aroma of cherry and blackberries. Texture more like a wine than a traditional beer, with light body. Nice feel with the flavor and carbonation. Taste of cherry and blackberries prevalent, somewhat sour but pleasant. Very unique offering from Goose Island, and I’m glad I came across this bottle. Will be looking forward to future offerings!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. Hazy brownish color, small off-white to beige head. Smell and taste are really really sour and that’s basically it. Some cherries there as well, plenty actually. But damn this was hard to drink. Not my thing. Too much.
