COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light floral, white peaches and grapes, mild hay. Taste is sparkling peach, spicy yeasts, rye. Very mild version of the style but I enjoyed plucking out some of the flavors.

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.

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.

Golden pour with white head. Smells of yeast, malt and slight hops. Tastes of the same with a dry finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Hazy light golden body. Frothy, white head. Aroma of basement mustiness, toasted grain, herbs, alcohol, pepper. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture turning syrupy, lively carbonation. Lots of alcohol in the finish. Average.

A very nice tripel. Lots of pepper and lemon. A fresh finish with a crisp mouthfeel. Very dry.
