4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle pours beautiful sparkling amber with a picture perfect foamy offwhite head. Aroma of yeast, with orange and some apricot. Flavor includes all 3 yeast, orange, apricot, some candi sugar, raisins, some definite spiciness on the finish which is quite dry. The soft mouthfeel is as great as the appearance. Very light in the mouth and creamy. Very nice brew and I’ve come to expect nothing but from Goose Island..

Lots of brett and possibly the best of the three recent Belgian styles releases from Goose Island. Poured well chilled. Even while cold there is a substantial barnyard quality to the beer that improves as the beer warms a bit. Flavor has sweet malt; sugar. The hops and light and delicate and work well with the other flavors. There is also light fruit as well. A great looking beer, enormous white head that lasts a long time. Minimal sediment.

Pours a light orange color with a thick white head. Aroma is sweet, lemony, and you can really smell the Brett. Tastes sweet and refreshing. Very easy on the hops leaving a nice crisop aftertase.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 Bottle. Pours a great reddish amber with an small head that dissapates quickly. Oranges, yeast, dry hop in both nose and taste. Nice full body flavor that has a clean finish. Good stuff, and the first Goose Island beer I’ve tried. These guys know their stuff!

32 fl oz bottle. Creamy orange white head. Orange coloured and slightly hazy. Apricot and lychee aromas with a soft sweet background. Distant peppery notes. Apricot flavours and a soft malty taste. Finishes fruity with a light, almost watery, aftertaste.

Bottle from Sean (illinismitty, aka Robby) Thanks man! Pours out a light orange color with a thick white head. Smell is sweet, spicy, and fruity. Taste is sweet, not very bitter, and refreshing. I was pretty much gulping this beer down. It was great. Probably the best belgian ale I can remember drinking. Too bad these arent distributed this far south. Great beer

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a filtered med. amber with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is decidedly funky, brett, with some cookie-maltiness and a slight spicy hop character. The body is med. which was a surprise, I was expecting something more refreshing. The flavors are mild, complex, but mild. The filtering has really negatively affected this beer. The complexity that it would have had was lost in the diotomaceous earth. Finish is med. dry.
