22 oz. bottle from lushawn- thanks again, Shawn! 2009 vintage. Gushed a little when it opened but we didn’t lose too much. Pours a cloudy orange color with some reddish tints and a huge off-white head with pink tints. Aroma of red grapes, raspberries, lemon citrus, wood, tannins, and a general acidic sourness. The flavor is essentially the same, very fruity and tart, with some funky yeast as well. Medium-bodied, with high, soft carbonation and a tart, juicy mouthfeel. Really nice sour, fruity and not too harsh. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2010
G: Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A: Beautiful orange-pink rose color with a frothy, slightly pink head.
S: Mostly sour notes. Tart fruit of cherries and blackberries.
T: Sweet and sour from the outset. Makes you pucker on the first sip, and then mellows more into the fruity, sweet flavors, especially as it warms more toward room temperature.
M: Sour on the tip of the tongue and the sides of the cheeks. Very light and crisp. Moderate to minimal carbonation.
D: Very solid overall. Goose Island is really stepping up its game with the new collection.

Ambery golden colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, some acidic wood, mild caramel maltyness as well as some spices. Flavour is acidic wood, some sour fruits, tart berries as well as some slight maltyness and spices as well. A rather wellbalanced and pleasant brew.
Batch 1. Pours an amber red orange with almost no head. A nice fruity nose: tropical fruit, orange citrus, lemon, and all around fruity. Tart acidic fruit flavors lots of acidic fruit especially cherries with some wood bringing in another layer. Good stuff. 8/3/8/4/15 Nisse666 (7779) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2010

Bottle courtesy of decoman from TBS. Bottled 8/14/09. Pours a cloudy, essentially opaque reddish-brown. Very red, almost pink. Very bubbly, tons of tiny bubbles in the head. Taste is very fruity...raspberry, cherry. Not as sour as I was expecting - a very drinkable sour. Girlfriend liked it too. dmac (6429) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle shared at the 4th release of CDC. Poured an orange/lavender body with a foamy super light pink head. Aroma is sour and funky with notes of raspberries and dandelions along with a touch of brett. The body had some seriously strong carbonation and a thinner watery feel. The flavor is the same as the aroma, fruity and funky. Really well done. pineypower (3347) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Pours out a cloudy orangy color with an off white head. Aroma is of some funky, fruit and light tartness. Taste is a very nice blend of sour, funky, and fruity, dry finish. Definitely a wonderfully balanced brew. anders37 (26878) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2010
