Bottle thanks to Jody. Pours pours a clear orange color. Orange and wheat nose, farts. Bitter off flavor finish. MattChiasson (71) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
Out of the bottle, poured a deep copper, cloudy, quickly evaporating head. I got earthy notes of brett, barnyard, mushroom and herbal tea, along with some sour cherry, orange peel and apple cider. Very funky on the palate. Lingering bitterness. Too funky for my taste, but certainly worth a try. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2016

Draught. Pours a clearish amber with a fading off white head. Aroma is of caramel, spice, earthy, hint of orange. Taste is of caramel, clove, ginger, yeasty spice. Light oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation. MrTipple (4966) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2016
Intense Belgian yeast, bread and caramel malts, sweet citrus fruits, orange, some spices. Clear gold, medium, frothy, white head. Light sweet. Bittersweet malts continue, caramel, yeast, alcohol, more spices, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Very nice Belgian Ale, very complex aroma and plate. Keg at the brewery tap room, Chicago.

Aroma and appearance were quite suitable...as was taste. It wasn’t a memorable over the top taste though. Mild and in my opinion a bit washed out. I could drink it again if offered but not on my dime. PanMarek (438) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Lots of caramel malt in the nose with spice in the middle and yeasty background. Pours dark yellow with moderate white foam that persists. Medium body, light fizz and some slickness. The taste is a little more mild than expected but a good presence of malt, hops and yeast. Slight alcohol burn.

Poured from a bottle 1.5 years old. Smells like a Belgian Ale, with a slight hop note. Pours a dark gold colour, and very cloudy. Yeast and sediment clearly visible. Head forms but dissapears almost instantly. First sip has just a slight sourness to it, but turns to a sweet Belgian le taste. Not too sweet. Great amount of carbonation. No aftertaste. Overall one of the better beers Ive had. Will look for this again in the fall.

Deep gold, light Amber in color with foamy beige head. A dusty dry hop scent, an interesting fusion with cigar tobacco, pine tar and rock candy. Nice feel, creamy and slightly sweet with pine needles. Goose island puts out some top shelf brews!
