Hazy orange color with a bit of beige foam disappearing quickly. Aroma has grape vinegar, toasted malt, a hint of brown sugar. Taste is sour, acidic, fruity but I don't really get blackberry, more like generic sour berries with a light bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Quite intense on the sour, acetic notes. dwyerpg (6631) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 22, 2018
My favorite of the three straight sour ales from goose island, perhaps because the fruit is the least present. Tasty stuff. drdisque (910) - Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2018
On tap at the brewpub. Pours muddy light brown. Flavor is musty deep fruit and tartness with a fair amount of funk and juice to go around. However, the mouthfeel is light enough and the finish is clean enough to make this all stand up. Great beer. zackler (3) - - NOV 24, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2017 Wild ale that is not too sour. More fruit forward and a bit of wine to level it out. Interesting Tide (4777) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Bottle at The Willows. Copper color, white head. Sour taste with citrus, white currant, tart, wheat, ripe fruits, sour apple and grass. Sour finish with sour apples, white currant, wheat, tart, ripe fruits and grass. Exquisite sour ale.

2013. Slight tartness. Blackberries. Woody. Some but not much red wine.
Tasted at my Plants and Animals Bottle share. tapefuzz (1026) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Draught. 2013. Pours an amberish red with a tiny, sudsy white head. Aroma is vinegar, light (black)berry, some oak, spice, and a hint of funk. Taste is blackberry, vinegar, red wine, grape, lots of oak, vanilla, and a hint of spice. Light, malty sweetness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy-ish mouthfeel. Remniscient of Cascade but with more vinegar. Aroma has too much vinegar in it. Bitterbill (2081) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 22, 2017
2017, 12 ounce bottle.
Pours opaque orange red, small and quickly gone head of foam. No lacing to speak of.
I smell Brett, tannins, tart to sour fruit. Blackberry is what they used but I can't remember when I last ate any blackberries.
Taste is pretty magnificent. Sour fruit, Brett, woody, quite complex and tasty.
On the lower end of medium bodied.
Probably my favourite Goose Island beer after Bourbon County Stout. dukeandduke (323) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2017
750 ML 2015 Bottled 7/31/15, multiple pours into Goose Island Chalice. Clear copper pour, nominal white head, mild carbonation. Tart blackberry and grape aroma, Tate similar, tart sweet balance, blackberry grape sour taste. Very clear mouth feel, easy drinking. Very good sour/sweet combination, good offering by Goose Island. rdixon77 (3142) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Thanks Carl! Nice sour. Blackberries and wine barrels shine through. Woody and sour and fruity in equal measure. Good stuff!
