A solid beautiful sour. A non sweet wild ale, with a great punch. RRBC still wins, but buy this over Lolita, also Goose Island.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours muddy light brown. Flavor is musty deep fruit and tartness with a fair amount of funk and juice to go around. However, the mouthfeel is light enough and the finish is clean enough to make this all stand up. Great beer.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2017 Wild ale that is not too sour. More fruit forward and a bit of wine to level it out. Interesting

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Bottle at The Willows. Copper color, white head. Sour taste with citrus, white currant, tart, wheat, ripe fruits, sour apple and grass. Sour finish with sour apples, white currant, wheat, tart, ripe fruits and grass. Exquisite sour ale.

2013. Slight tartness. Blackberries. Woody. Some but not much red wine. Tasted at my Plants and Animals Bottle share.

tapefuzz (928) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Draught. 2013. Pours an amberish red with a tiny, sudsy white head. Aroma is vinegar, light (black)berry, some oak, spice, and a hint of funk. Taste is blackberry, vinegar, red wine, grape, lots of oak, vanilla, and a hint of spice. Light, malty sweetness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy-ish mouthfeel. Remniscient of Cascade but with more vinegar. Aroma has too much vinegar in it.

2017, 12 ounce bottle. Pours opaque orange red, small and quickly gone head of foam. No lacing to speak of. I smell Brett, tannins, tart to sour fruit. Blackberry is what they used but I can't remember when I last ate any blackberries. Taste is pretty magnificent. Sour fruit, Brett, woody, quite complex and tasty. On the lower end of medium bodied. Probably my favourite Goose Island beer after Bourbon County Stout.

750 ML 2015 Bottled 7/31/15, multiple pours into Goose Island Chalice. Clear copper pour, nominal white head, mild carbonation. Tart blackberry and grape aroma, Tate similar, tart sweet balance, blackberry grape sour taste. Very clear mouth feel, easy drinking. Very good sour/sweet combination, good offering by Goose Island.

Thanks Carl! Nice sour. Blackberries and wine barrels shine through. Woody and sour and fruity in equal measure. Good stuff!

Mora, aroma jugoso. En nariz la acidez es elegante y cítrica, pero ne boca es intensa y larga.

PanMarek (465) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Dark reddish amber pour with clouds, some debris, and a quick beige bubbly foam. Tart on the nose with good acid, some beery fruit and damp earthy notes. Light body with lots of fizz and a sharp, dry, vinous finish, though not as dry as Gillian or Sophie. The taste is tart, acidic with some complex earthy and blueberry flavors. The berry becomes more prominent as it warms. The fizz helps bring this out, somehow. A well-balanced, moderately sour ale. The vinous touches are subtle, but help moderate the tartness and resonate well with the berry flavors. Lacks some of the briny flavors of the other sisters and tastes more like a traditional sour. Unequivocally not a saison.
