Bomber pour shared at tasting.2012 edition..pours a golden tan color with minimal head, nose is funk n blackberries for miles..mighty fine..palate is funk n berries mixed with barrel goodness, easily one of the better sister offerings from GI, lots of stuff going on here all in a good way, like the fruit, like the funk, like the sour, not much to fault here, a well done take on a fruited Belgian sour/wild ale katrinaez (2309) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Very sour and tart, not vinegar but wow on the tongue. Grapes, raspberries, grass, and yeast. Pale yellow color. Had 2013 Bottle in 2017. The_Osprey (9358) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle pour, third of pint, at Goose Island Vintage Ale House Balham. As Goose Island Juliet. Pours a translucent red, sparkling, minimal beige head. Aroma is restrained Jolly Ranchers and redcurrant, red jelly babies. Body is fairly light, tingly carbonation and quite frothy in the mouth. Taste has a puckering, bracing acidity, tooth coating acidity, rounded fruits and biscuity vanilla oak. Tangy redcurrant and cranberry, and the blackberry shows up. Lightly tannic red wine. Very big flavour but there’s something not quite in balance for me. Keep the gaviscon at hand. Very slow drinking and there’s no chance I’d be able to do a full bottle. 1/6 pint would have been sufficient, and this started to wear. EdKing (2656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2017

Pours light pumpkin with almost no head. Aromas of peach, apricot, light funk, green grapes, farmhouse, garden branch. Taste is fruity and funky with light farmhouse notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium body and a light carbonation. drjay44 (3857) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2017
765 ml. bottle. Bottled 15Apr16. 8.2% ABV per the label. Pours a minimal, poorly retained ivory head, with no lacing over a hazy amber (SRM 13) body.....nose is heavy funk, barnyard, blackberry, vinous tones, minimal malts, no hops......taste is moderately tart sour, with blackberry, vinous tones, mild funk, minimal barnyard, finishing with minimal hints of berry sweetness and lingering mild sourness......mouth feel, light of medium body, mild alcohol, high carbonation. My only real criticism is the incredibly high local price approaching $25 per bottle. The blackberry, barrel and wild yeasts add nice complexity in both aroma and flavor, with the result of a quite delicious Sour/Wild ale.

Small off white head, large bubbled and short lived, no lacing to speak of. Lightly hazy amber copper colored ale. Nose is faintly fruity, lightly woody and a hint spicy. body is light, carbo has died off quickly, tangy, tart and juicy, in its own way. Light lumber and faint fruits, apples and berries with a puckering tartness. Little leather, hint of strawberry and sweat. Dry, puckering finish. Bomber dated 1/26/12. A tad over the 5 year BB date stated on the label. Still juicy and yummy. Little carbonation is the only drawback i register. Has aged well actually. Bomber from statelineliquors a while ago.
