Flavor is slightly sour with notes of vinegar, cherries, ripe fresh fruit, hints of sweetness. Generally medium body with a sour finish. Nice ale.

2009 Bottle sampled at Noogfest High 5 thanks to unclejedi. Poured amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of tart fruits. More tart fruits in the flavor with a backing of light malts and a hint of spice. Medium body.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2012
pour is a dark transparent ruby red with a beige tiny bubbled head. Nose is heavy tart berry, fair amount of dry wood, hints of lacto and vanilla, light Brett leather note. Taste is heavy sour dark berry, lightly lactic. Wood isnt there near as much as the nose. Body is lightly dry, a hint syrupy, rather puckering and highly carbonated. Not bad, pretty sour, strong berry note, not too much else.

Bottled August 1, 2013 (3.5 months old).
Appearance: The body is mildly-moderately hazy with a bright orange hue with a purple hue. The head is short and effervescent with a tan hue, quickly disappearing with no sign of a head left after its gone.
Aroma: The aroma was pungent with blackberry on the pour, but as it sits its very fruity with sweet blackberry, sweetened by aromas of confectioners sugar with a mild backend of cabernet. The aroma leans sweet, but not overly so, with good strength. I enjoy this.
Taste: The intro is sweet with sugar and berry fruitiness, the sour build up quickly to a strong sour blue raspberry flavor you find in some ice pops or candies. The sourness quickly becomes vinegary, finishing out the flavor with a slight pucker. After a few sips the flavor reminds me of a blue raspberry soda, albeit, not as sweet. The finish lingers a moment of vinegar and blue raspberry, very enjoyable.
Palate: Full-bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This is my favorite of the Goose Island sisters. I find this to be complex, sour and very drinkable. I love the blend of flavors and I love the sweet undertones. This is great.

Last one from an awesome box from deyholla. Pours a beautiful deep ruby orange with tiny fizzy head that recedes quickly. Smell is sour vinegar and very sweet fruit. Flavor is sour up front with a smooth berry finish. The berry is not too sweet and has just the right balance. Prickly carbonation and light-medium mouthfeel. Awesome sour, probably my favorite of the GI ladies.

Stine (1775) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2009
Bright, brazen orange. Cloudy. Aroma is lightly funky, with cheeses and salts foremost, fruit beneath, and minerals and sugars at the end. Complex and lucid.

Very tart and pleasant flavor; pineapple, cayenne pepper; intense, but calm. Firm yeast textures in breads and brown spices; dark fruits, oak, vinegar; tons of different sensations, all of which are positive, distinct and softly put forward.

Bright, toned palate; brisk and light, but full bodied. Some vinegar and pit fruit flavors nearing the finish. Really masterfully done, and so understated, i loved it. Thanks Ty!

Bottle from chicagodri. Thanks Paul! Pours a reddish-pink color with a fluffy light pinkish head. Big fruity nose with plenty of horseblanket funk. Prickly and tart. Quite acidic. Funky fruit, currants, red wine flavors along with some wood barrel notes. Dry as hell. Nice sour. Probably slides just below some of the big boys in the category.

Hazy amber pour with a bubbly white head. Super funky aroma, sour dough, pizza shop, gym socks, dark berries, citrus and leather. Nicely balanced with tart dark berries up front with citrus rind, pizza shop, leather and hay. Medium bodied with tart berry in the finish. Damn fine.
