On tap and served in a shaker (this bar didn’t appear to have much of a selection of glassware). This beer poured a clear golden/amber with a thin head of tight beige bubbles. Some spotty lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of orange peel, caramel, and bread. The flavor was similar but also included some lightly spicy yeast esthers as well as a bit of candi sugar. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied with light carbonation. A nice beer from Goose Island.

Pours a Cloudy amber color with a creamy colored head. Nice fruity aroma with a hint of hop notes. Big fruity candied belgian yeast flavor with a slight malt backing. Nice flavor of spices as well and a bitter finish.

Beautifal amber color, nice thick frothy white head. Great flavor, slightly fruity, some good hoppiness, spicy. Great beer for early fall when it’s still warm out.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Light and fruity aroma, white grapes, starfruit, with hints of caramel and brown sugar. Pours very light amber. Light but finishes with a rich malt flavor, caramelly, brown sugar, fruity, light citrus, spicy. Very easy to drink, great beer!

750, capped. Thanks, Footy! Pours nearly clear medium amber with a thinnish, nearly white head. Modest nose of restrained fruit, maybe some tangy tangerine. Light body on the attack, subdued carb, and there’s that tangerine again. Body goes a bit watery before it’s gone. Odd little rush of pie spice there at the end. Kind of a perplexing beer, but certainly tasty, interesting, and different.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Golden amber, clean rust color. Full, fizzy off white head. Noticeable sediment. Lots of fruit in the nose. Apricot, peach, banana and bit of orange. Hints of bubblegum and yeast. Medium bodied brew with alot of character. Well carobonated and balanced. A very good beer.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2010 Tap at the GABF Nice sour aroma! Funky and earthy. Taste is grainy and slightly sour citrus and weak hops. Boring. ----- re-rate----- Funky edition with Sofie yeast: Aroma is lactic, sour, yeasty, lemon, and slightly soapy. Comes off as dry and funky. Taste is lemony, sour, minty, lactic, and barnyard sour. Like an Orval, but not quite.... Finish is tart, dry, and lemony. I like!

2006 12 ounce via road trip purchase from my friend Liz. Gusher for a 12oz sitting still for a few weeks. Pours orange with a 1 finger flimsy bright white head. The nose is full of ginger but more like ginger bread than anything else, pretty appealing nose too. That gingerbread quality translates nicely to a light robust flavor. The taste is lightly sweet and spicy. Really is a lot like drinking a ginger bread cookie. nice job goose island.
