Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bomber from 2012, bottled 1.26.12. Pours dark orange and lively, dark pink and orange in the glass, with a small and short-lived beige head. Aromas of sour cherry, blackberry, and raspberry. Tons of fresh fruit and tart seeds, wet hay, and some ripe cheese. The flavor is sweet and tart raspberry and blackberry; tart seeds and berry funk build gradually to a tart finish. The finish has bright, unripe berries, cheese, and mild barnyard funk, with perhaps a splash of Pinot Noir. Medium carbonation and body, savory and mouthwatering, quenching, and bone dry. Solid, and very tasty. I hate cellular immunity. [1089]

Deuce to oversized snifter. Looks good; mahogany with thin white lacing. Smells good too; tart fruit and cabernet. Tastes nice; like it smells. Very tart on the palate. Nice!

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Pours a black-amber color. Aroma is tart blackberries. Taste is extremely sweet blackberries. That is about it. Im a lover of fruit beers and sours but this was a bit over the top. Extremely sweet in an unflattering way. I think some aging in bourbon barrels may do this some justice and mellow out that sweetness.

Fruity sour aroma, surprisingly a little sweetness mingled in amongst the fruit. Quickly dissipating white head, leaving a beautiful golden amber, with no lacing to speak of. Taste right up front is sweet which immediately turns to sour with a hint of blackberries fading into oaky tannins in the back of the tongue. Overall, a really nice, complex sour, and something that I would really suggest searching out to any lovers of the sours; you wont be disappointed.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber red with a white head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma has a good amount of sour berries and red fruit with a bit of wood and a pretty strong acidic note. Flavor begins with sour and acidic berries with a decent amount of tannins and wood.

Paul shared this at a recent tasting. Thanks man! A: Ruby and orange hues with a medium-sized white head filled with tiny bubbles. S: Fantastic aromas of brettanomyces and cherries. T: This beer is not incredibly sour, but refreshingly tart. The taste is world class. I thoroughly enjoyed my glass and savored every drop. Blackberry flavors shine. M: Lactic start and acetic in the finish. High carbonation in the feel with a little kick at the end. D: A really great beer. Highly recommended.

2012 Vintage, bottled on 1/26/2012, #1212. 22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. A - Clear body that changes from red, purple, or amber depending on how its held up to the light. Thin off white edging with low amount of lacing. The color of this beer is just gorgeous! S - Starts off very acetic and funky. Im getting more red grape than berry notes, but there is a bit of blackberry.The fruit is very light and really overpowered by the Brettanomyces. A bit of a rye spice on the finish as well as some oaky tannins. T - Very tart and sour. Red wine and blackberries, acidic vinegar, oak and rye spice. Some lightly caramelized malts and brett funk on the finish. Very complex and well balanced for a wild ale. Mouth feel has that sort of enamel ripping tartness that I get from some Cantillon fruit lambics. Very awesome! O - This beer really reminds me of Cantillon Kriek. Just strong mouth puckering sour fruit. Only it has light notes of berries, oak, malt and rye in there making it much more interesting. Certainly one of the better executed American wild ales I have tried. Well played Goose Island, well played!

Slightly hazy garnet in color with soft white head. Lactic sour aroma with a hint of berry, funk, vanilla, and oak. Pretty solid sour berry that rushes in, hangs for a bit, then fades leaving behind some malt/wheat and oak/vanilla. Doesnt leave behind much sour flavor or acidity. Quite nice.

22oz bottle, split with my bride. Pours a clear, brite, reddish-brown color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, blackberry. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is lightly sour, fruity, blackberry, a little Belgian yeasty, with a nice tart finish. Very tasty.
