Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale yellow golden pour. The nose is quite fruity with a kiss of soft horsey funkiness. A touch of light lemon and a flinty minerally character as well. Light pineapple and citrus that enhance the touch of fruit. Bright, crisp and refreshing.

tap @ blind tiger for GI event - hazy pink/orange pour with no head. nice and tart, sweet, clear caramel malts. Spritzy and light. Sweet berries, strawberries and orange, also attribute to fruity lactic character. Almost tastes like a berliner weisse to me. Alcohol is hidden pretty well.

Draft at the Hopcat Goose Island night in Grand Rapids. Thanks to Northernbrews for getting us over to Hopcat for this. Tart and acidic aroma of fruits and funk. Flavor is fruity, buy not noticeably raspberries. Nice tartness. Great beer.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2009
On tap at GTMW. Poured hazy peach with a creamy cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up rich, tart raspberries, white peppery spicage, and grassy notes over a sufficient pale malty base. The flavor had tart raspberries and lemon zest over toasted grains and pale malts.. earthy spices and fragrant floral character from the yeast.. tasty. Tart and refreshing on the palate and well-carbonated.. overall a very enjoyable brew.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 24, 2009
GTMW 2009. Poured a hazy orange color with a redish tint. The head was white. Pleasant aroma of red wine, raspberry, and cider vinegar. Light bodied and acidic. The flavors were similar to the aroma; dry red wine, raspberries, and cider vinegar. There was also a bit of wet stone at the end. Delicious.

Goose island was a real winner at GTMW09. Yeast and caramel malts dominated by a wonderfully tart dose of rsspberry. . Faintly sour.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2009
GTMW 2009: Pinkish hue with a fizzy head and some lace. The aroma has notes of tart raspberries, light herbal notes, some caramel and biscuity malts, hint of Belgian yeast esters. The taste starts with a heavy dose of acidic fruit supported by pale malts, earthy and faint herbal spices. The mouth feel is lively and refreshing. A good brew but in the grand scheme of things a rather pedestrian effort.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Murky off brown pour w/ a small white head. Nice tart aroma sour fruits a hint of leather very crisp. Fairly avg pal. Tart flavor hints of earthyness ... boring.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2009
On tap @ Hop Cat in Grand Rapids. Hazy mauve color, very little head. Lightly fruity aroma, just a hint of tartness. Nice sharp tart start to the taste, mild berry fruitiness in the middle, light sour and refreshing finish. Very good, probably the best of the special GI drafts they had on that night.
