Una cerveza muy suave pero para la gente que quiere aprender este tipo de sabor que es tan diferente a las lager me parece una buena opcion pues tiene muy poco amargor

Goose Island Summertime
Pours a light golden color. Very clear. Pretty well carbonated. About half finger white head. Quickly dissipates. No retention, light lacing.

Aroma is banana bread. Malty, yeasty, banana bread.

Taste is light lemon, still tasting banana bread. There’s some earthy hops in there.

Mouthfeel is light and watery. A little too watery. Very light, very refreshing. Very mild, barely bitter.

Overall, this isn’t that great. I’ve got this in my glass, and I’m in no hurry to drink it. As it warms it gets a little better. Yeah, I guess it’s good for summertime. But I’m not going to stock my fridge with it. I think I’d take Bud Light over this, any day.

THANKS for sharing RB people! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ outside De Bierkoning during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016! Some of their sister beers of Goose Island aren’t that great & plenty of the new vintages were lesser, overly sour etc. compared to what I remember them being. This one was just wonder as fitting for a show as phenomenal as the X-Files. Hazy orange with basically no head. Nose is big strawberry, honey, faint apricot, huge fruit & light honey. Taste is awesome strawberry, fruit is vibrant and lively, sweet upfront, sweet strawberry with honey leading into a complimentary sour, lightly puckering, this has balance, amazing fruit etc. this one & Halia are the ones that you need.

Goose Island Endless IPA
12 oz. bottle. Slight copper color, weak head retention. Nose is light toasted grain and light hints of pine.

Flavor is ok. Toasted grain/ bready malt backbone. Decent amount of citrus. The body and texture is better than a lot of other “session” IPA’s on the market. Doesn’t come off watery at all. Obviously nothing in the top tier of the style here but it is respectable.

Goose Island Lolita
Strong sour with raspberries, at Bierkoning during Carnivale Brettanomyces, poured by Goose Island’s own ’innovation brewer’ (cheers Tim!). Moussy, off-pinkish head over a deep copper-hued amber beer with vivid sparkling. Rich and enticing aroma of raspberry pie, raspberry vinegar and sweet fresh red raspberry, sourdough, orange peel, lemon rind, damp earth, wet wood, vanilla, yoghurt, ’horseblanket’. Softly sour onset, very emphatically fruity, sweet raspberry embedded in a general fruit tartness, estery, green plum-like, medium carbo, mellow mouthfeel, bready malt base with a pleasantly rounded feel, fruitiness lingering for a long time both in the actual raspberry sense and in the estery sense, vanilla-like wood tannins retronasally, soft sourishness drying the finish along with a glow of warming alcohol. I’ve tasted many attempts at lambic-like fruit beers from outside of Belgium but somehow most of them seem to lack a bit in complexity - this, however, is a beauty of international class.

Goose Island Matilda
At Bierkoning during Carnivale Brettanomyces. Classic Belgian-style ale by Goose Island, with very thick and dense, towering high, creamy, egg-white head and hazy orange blonde robe. Aroma of wet leather, fermenting hay, peach, strawberry, stewed pear, bitter honey, old dry sherry. Fruity sweetish, mildly estery onset, pear, mango and slight banana, some almost Brett-like ’funkiness’, supple malt sweetness, very earthy and yeasty ending with mild herbal and leafy hop bitterishness. If this is not a (new generation) saison, then I do not know what is...

Jet black pour with a thin head. Aroma of berries and a little tartness. Full bodied. Taste has some berries, chocolate, leather and ash. Dry finish. Very balanced. This is a really nice beer. Slightly tart from the berries and sweet from the chocolate. Reminds me of a chocolate salted cherry. Delicious.

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - Proprietor’s 2015
Bottle to snifter. Looks decent; no visible carbonation though. A semi-transparent cola. Smells malty with notes of oak, maple, and pepper spice. A touch of unaversive tartness as well, which makes me wonder how it’s going to taste. Tastes like it smells, but with some twang. Possibly infected, but nothing like the other BCS variants. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied. Not bad, but off.
