4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Poured a hazy straw yellow with two fingers of white bubbly head that leaves behind good lacing. Aroma is subtle but complex with some lemon, cracker malt, light fruit sweetness and a bit of barnyard. Taste has the same subtle complexities. Lemon, orange and light fruit flavors with the cracker malt followed by white pepper and an earthiness or leathery component. Just a hint of tartness and funk in the finish. Flavors are all wonderfully light and balanced, with nothing overpowering. Starts off with some sweetness but ends up being fairly dry with a medium mouthfeel. Very nice and drinkable cross between a Belgian pale and a saison. Really enjoyed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours lightly-hazed lemon straw into the glass, with a large soapy head that leaves soapy lacing. This one has been aging for 2 years (bottle-conditioned to age up to 5 years), and boy has it mellowed nicely! Flavors are full of yeasty esters and light barnyard grains. Flavors of light lemon, melon, curt grains, wheat and light spices meld together deliciously. The smooth, easy quaff has just enough lively carbonation to provide activity. Perfect summer brew here, and another great Goose Island offering. A nice, non-high gravity ageable complex summer offering?? Who’da thunk it? Awesome!

Clear light orange-yellow pour., Medium to tall white head that sticks around fairly well. Grainy aroma, some spice, coriander, yeasty whiffs as well. Taste follows with heavier earthy notes. Overall fairly complex, although still not my favorite.

765 mL bottle (how odd), marked 2013 vintage on top. Pours a hazed pale golden with a bubbly white head. Tart orange, lemon, and lime citrus aroma. Tart lemon-lime citrus, orange again, a bit of saltine. It’s pretty tasty, though not really what I expected.

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.
