It opens with a gush. It pours into my oversized wine glass a vibrant red magenta with a huge rosy pink head. It sticks for a long assed time and leaves some good lacing. The blackberries make this one look stunning.
It has a decently funky smell. There are vinegar notes and a smidge of funkiness. It is more sour than funky smelling. There is a huge oak presence in the smell as well. The blackberries also make an appearance in the scent. This is an amazing smelling beer though the oak is ever so slightly overpowering and it clashes a slight bit with the blackberry.
The taste is a lot like the flavor. It is sour but not overly sour. The oak is once again prevalent in the taste and it is a bit overpowering to go along with the sour blackberry.
The mouthfeel is a bit over carbonated but refreshing. It has a very dry finish.
Overall a great sour beer from Goose Island, though a bit pricey.

Big bretty aromas with crisp light berries and wood. Light and barely sweet, dry and a touch funky. Finishes crisply and with a touch of vinegar. This was remarkably good.
