Goose Island Hombre Secret Mango
This beer poured a light golden glinting yellow. The nose was tequila with bits of candy, sugar, and alcohol. The flavor followed through but the mango gave this an added complexity that I really enjoyed. The alcohol combined with the Belgian flavors with the wood tequila and mango--amazing. I can’t wait to get one more.

Pretty mediocre. Aroma dull. Taste malty with faint stale hops. Some bitterness. Just didn't have the hop attributes I thought I should have got from this beer. Needs to liven up a bit all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice dark amber, almost no foam. Heavy nose with honey and flowers. Heavy mouth with dried fruit bread, bourbon and honey. It is well balanced on the sweet side. It is a desert!

Goose Island Savage Wit
On tap at this year’s Chicago Beer Society picnic, and self served to plastic showing a hazed, orangey gold color, with modest, off white head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was mild wheat, lightly floral, and fruit as some apple, pear, and citrus. Light bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste was somewhat similar notes, adding earthy bitterness, dryness, and the appearance of light smokiness that came off a bit medicinal. Okay, but no real wow factor.

Lightly clouded gold, white head. Huge tropical fruits and sweet, piney resin. Somewhat bitter, strong on the fruit sweetness. Lighter body, chewy, medium finish. Excellent. Very happy to see more of this style of IPA in Chicago.

Goose Island (Brewpubs) Weisse Weisse Baby
On tap at this year’s Chicago Beer Society picnic, and self served to plastic showing a hazed, orangey gold, with a modest layer of off white head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was fruity, but subtle in intensity, with light tartness. Light to medium bodied, the tartness continued to be light in the taste, along with a harmless hint of sulfur, but a lively carbonation along with some pleasant tanginess created decent, puckering refreshment.

Goose Island Baltic Porter
On tap at this year’s Chicago Beer Society picnic, and self dispensed to plastic showing a darkest brown color, with some amber highlighting, tan frothiness to the head, and foamy spots of lacing. The nose was smooth malt, roastiness, with cocoa, some coffee on the back, caramel, and a hint of vanilla. Better than medium bodied, with fair carbonation that was mellowed by subtle creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste also offered a touch of alcohol presence, and a bit of toffee sweetness. Hefty, yet nicely quaffable.

Pours pale golden with a white head. The aroma has rich peaches, lush fruit and fleshy stone fruit. It has a rich full body and the high alcohol tequila hits hard. There are some botanicals, but the booze is front and center. Ouch. Not for me.

Draft at source. Vey pepper forward in the aroma. Mild clove. Very phenolic, not a fan hazy deep gold with white head. Taste shows some vanilla notes and a touch of fruit, but definitely all phenols. Nothing bad but just a yeast profile I don’t care for.

Pretty pour, more earthy hop nose mixes with caramel. A firmer but not overwhelming earthy, grass, gently spiced hop appeal but still enough biscuit and carmelized appeal to stay in style.
