Pours amber with no head. Light carbonation. Nose is fruity, raspberries, winey, tart. Taste is sour, tart, a yogurt note, dry, a hint of sweetness, raspberry but underripe and rather tart, and as it goes down I get a somewhat bitter grassy note. Solid sour.

2013 bottle..reddish tint as settling in..nose has got the berries soaked in wine..quite nice..mouthfeel is really pleasant and a good representation for the style..fruit is not overdone yet provides excellent depth..Brett action provides a bit of puckering sourness that is kept in check and the wine barrel throws in some interesting flavors that add to complexity..velvety smooth with a dry finish overall great work here from goose island..really enjoyable american made sour hfmejias (1283) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle. Poured a cloudy dark orange with a minimal white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of fruit, wood and maybe even some wine as it warms up. Taste is quite tart and fruity, what I found interesting is that sourness does not overpowers the brew and is quite balanced. Nice beer, enjoyable.

Pour is orangey pink with a white fizzy head that only lasted a few seconds. Aroma of tart fruit and funk. The taste is sour, sweet raspberries, funky, and bitter. Palate changes with each sip from bitter and tart to sweet and spritzy, very clean and fresh. Excellent funky sour with nice raspberry notes.

Pours a lovely cloudy amber with no head. Aroma is sour with hints of Raspberry’s. Taste is very sweet like raspberries like I was expecting with a little sourness. Leaves a clean finish.

2013-12-15. Hazy dark orange body with a nice beige head that fades. 3++ Aroma is sour, floral tart raspberry character. Flavour is pleasantly sour throughout, tart raspberry underneath, with notes of green raspberry leaf or seeds. A floral character makes infrequent appearances. Sourness lingers in the finish and aftertaste with a light lactic quality. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. 3+ Pretty nice.

Pours a brownish reddish color with a small off white head. Beautiful goldish tinge to the color as light bends around the outside. Aroma is of fresh raspberries. Taste is complex, sour/tart/sweet raspberries, with a very smooth palate. Very tasty, and the sourness was managed very well for a clean mouth feel.
On tap at Republic Uptown. Super expensive, not sure if I’d buy again. Fun to try. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 6, 2014
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 A nice cross between a sour/wild ale and a framboise lambic. Very tart, which took me by surprise as I expected a milder flavor. Acidic. Has some wild ale funk, but it stays in the background behind the sour rasberries. Not on the same level as Juliet, but still a great beer. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 5, 2014
From the bottle. Clear and dark red pour with very little head. Tart Raspberries aroma with a more sour taste with a just enough carbonation to offset the winesque finish, a very tasty raspberry sour. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2014
On tap at Palm Tavern. Ruby with a medium off-white topper. Aroma of mild raspberry, oak, spices and some wood. Taste is mildly sour with a faint raspberry backer and some faint oak. Finishes in a tart/sour mix. I don’t mind sours but the deviation from one sour to the next is rather minimal. Maybe I haven’t had my sour epiphany yet. I didn’t use to like hoppy beers or bourbon barrel beers and now I love them. Given the price tags on lots of sours I guess I’m okay if that epiphany never comes.
