Draft at Uno. Enjoyed this one - lots of apple and pear in the nose. Tart and crisp flavors - fruit comes through nicely with some cookie/shortbread traits. Again, high ABV is well hidden. i could sip this all day.

4-pack. Nice aroma. Beyond that, it’s a good Tripel. Some fruity, tangerine like notes, plus some Gruyere cheese or something. Finishes dry. Doesn’t feel like 9%. No real Belgian does.

Super, super mandarin orange. As it warms, the hop bitter shows up, and rounds this Tripel nicely. On that note, it finishes like a Tripel, but the rest of it is a bit thin for the style.

Hazy golden pour into Goose Island Matilda tulip glass. Spicy aroma with some green apple and pear. Flavor is nicley spiced with a pineapple and mango flavor. The yeast lingers on the palate. I like that it is not too sweet and the dry hops add a pleasant spice note. This is the second time buying this. Hopefully they will brew this again next year.

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Hazy golden with full white head. Spice and bright tropical flavors marry well with a great dry fjnish from the spicy yeast.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 10-15-14. “Bottled on: 10APR2014” and says brewery fresh for 180 days after bottling date, so I’m about a week late in consuming this beer. Quite pleasant, floral, tart aroma features scents of orange, lemon, grapefruit, and salt. Pours a yellow gold with moderate effervescence. Some small specks of suspended particulate in the liquid. Moderate amount of light taupe head. Produces good lacing. Citric taste largely matches the aroma. Pungent, dry finish. Sweet citrus flavor, especially grapefruit. Too citric and too sweet; unbalanced. Medium to full body. Lively and silky in the palate. Good palate effects. Overall, Goose Island The Ogden looks good, smells good, feels good, and tastes mediocre.
