Pours a rather bright golden color with very slight haze, large bubbled head, and tons of lace. Tons of carbonation in this beer that is mesmerizing to watch. Nose has some orange & funky yeasty aromas. On the palate there is a nice citrus flavor with light wheaty malt. Easy drinking and refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a light and clear golden yellow with a short-lived foamy white head. Nose is sweet, spicy, and fruity with moderate citrus and some vanilla. Light, heavily carbonated, dry. Nice spicing and a good hit of fruity tones with some mild yeast.

Bottle (Gotta love the label -- gorgeous packaging).
Probably my favorite goose island beer to date, especially if I don’t view it as a saison. Aroma is the distinctive house character of their belgian-style yeast, plus a very nice tart oaky bite from the wine barrels. Too strong on the banana esters for my taste and too sweet for a saison in my book, it nonetheless is a very nice beer largely because of the magic that took place in the barrels.

Bottle. Aroma of orange, vanilla cream, oak and a subtle sour funky fruity note that is just so delicate and charming. What a sweety of a beer. Pale yellow orange hue with a large white foamy head that diminished and left good lace. Taste is sweet and fruity with a creamy finish. Palate is medium bodied and lively. What a beautiful, charming and sweet beer. Like a refined young woman kissed by the late afternoon sun. Elegant and delecious. Sofie, I love you, now give me some sugar baby :)
