UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 1/17/16 Chicago (765ml bottle bottled 3/7/14 poured into tulip glass). Dark red/brown pour, moderate tan head with mild carbonation. Aroma of cherry and blackberries. Texture more like a carbonated wine. Nice feel with the flavor and significant carbonation. Taste of tart cherry and blackberries prevalent, nice mix of sweet fruit with sour taste, malt solid. Really enjoyed the strong variety of tastes. I enjoyed the entire large bottle more than I recall the original split offering. Glad I picked this second bottle up from Binnys! 1/1/16 Chicago (765ml 2014 bottle split three ways). Dark red/brown pour, slight tan head which evaporated quickly with mild carbonation. Aroma of cherry and blackberries. Texture more like a wine than a traditional beer, with light body. Nice feel with the flavor and carbonation. Taste of cherry and blackberries prevalent, somewhat sour but pleasant. Very unique offering from Goose Island, and Im glad I came across this bottle. Will be looking forward to future offerings!
