Goose Island CBC India Pale Ale
Fles gedeeld door JoepvW, geprobeerd bij de 2 Bourgondiërs te Hilvarenbeek. Het is een helder goudkleurig bier met een witte kop. Mooi, fris aroma met fruitige hopsmaak, zoetig met hints van abrikoos. Lekker bittertje in de afdronk.

Goose Island Midway IPA
200517. Taster at GABS in Melbourne. Reasonably flavoursome drop but not as tasty as some of the other Goose Isand beers that I have had. Not sure about the sessionabilty of this beer at 5.5%abv.

Goose Island Flanders Red
750 ml bottle shared by AdamChandler. Dude, old Whalez.... Almost clear brown color. Aroma is mild cherry skins, maybe red grapes, no vinegar (this must have mellowed) very subtle. Old cherry skins, malty sweetness, maybe vanilla. Body is medium, carbonation has faded. Really not bad.

Goose Island Midway IPA
On tap at Edinburgh Castle Hotel, Sydney. Pours a clear straw gold with lingering white head. Aroma: Malt, citrus, grass notes. Taste: Citrus notes and malt flavours dominate. Moderate to high bitterness. Carbonation obscures the flavours. Not a lot going on here. Pretty bland for a 5.5% beer. Would’ve picked it for a basic mid-strength beer. No where near as tasty as the other Goose Island beers. Easy to drink though, but nothing spectacular.

Goose Island Peach Fuzz
Bottle. Clear amber with a dingy yellowish walls-that-used-to-be-white-but-a-smoker-lived-here-for-sixty-years colored head and given that, a polluted looking ring of lace. Faint aroma of peaches and toffee. Tastes a little peachy, very slightly bitter, and slightly sweet. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle. Orange, peach, caramel malt, and orange peel aroma. Slightly hazy golden yellow with large eggshell white head. Moderately sweet orange caramel malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel. Okay body - slight peach in the finish. Not very fruity - kind of boring.

An excellent Czech -styled pilsner with a mildy nutty malt backing and crisp continental hop character. Great balance. Love the mild malty fade. Pours crystal clear light amber with a sticky large white head. Oodles of lace.

Goose Island Midway IPA
Found the hops, that was it. No body, flavour or finish. Had this on tap in sunny Surfers Paradise Australia. Maybe the flavour fell out in transit. Not worth the +30% price compared with the other offerings. An OK beer in an emergency. At best an entry level IPA for an unsophisticated palate.

Goose Island CBC India Pale Ale
Au nez on retrouve la fraîcheur du houblon qui évoque des arômes fruités de pamplemousse et de pêche. On ressent ensuite des notes plus profondes de céréales qui apportent un peu de douceur et d'harmonie. Sur le palais les saveurs de houblons floraux s'accordent aux notes plus fruitées des fruits jaunes juteux, d'aiguilles de partir n, suivies par quelques nuances plus légères de caramel. La malt apporte un peu de rondeur et de sécheresse. La finale est marquée par une longue amertume extrêmement agréable. Se marié bien avec un vieux gouda ou un poulet curry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to leave light lace. Aroma is herbal and citrus zesty notes over a vanilla barrel middle and funky ending. Taste is the funk and tequila up front with a mild boozy sweetness and slightly acidic finish. Complex, interesting, awesome.

Goose Island Peach Fuzz
Bottle: Hazy, yellow/amber with a frothy off-white head. Grain, minimal fruit aroma. Taste is grain malt, very slightly bitter peach skin. Nothing bad here, but it just doesn’t deliver anything peach-wise, really..... just sort of a non-descript fruitiness and not a lot of that either. Very plain and unfocused.

Goose Island Hombre Secreto
Draft on tap at the Fulton Taproom (Chicago, IL). Interesting experiment, definitely not a brewpub beer. But again, everything is wrong here. Pours a decent hazed golden straw hue, a mellow glow, firmer haze and barrel dulls the beer. The brighter, fruity, spicy Sofie nose tapers off, filling with oak, an earthy slightly smokey appeal, cobwebs and florals. Some vanilla, spirit warmth, lingering white wine, melon, and citrusy life. Initial picks up firmer barrel elements, tequila warmth, earthy and slightly smokey wood appeal hits the palate and melds a bit awkwardly with the brighter, fruity, slightly spicy Sofie appeal. Cobwebs, funk, firm oak and a bit of warmth as we taper out. An interesting experiment that isn’t bad but ends up just being a bit of a mish mosh. The tequila barrel is intriguing but only to a point. A solid beer but seems to kinda ruin what Sofie is.

Sampled from 0.75 l bottle. Clear, dark reddish brown with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly yeasty-spicy and a little fruity aroma of caramel, prunes, raisins, vanilla and some oak. Rather sweet, malty, slightly yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity taste of caramel, prunes, raisins, vanilla and oak, followed by a long, moderately bitter, slightly yeasty-spicy and quite warming-alcoholic finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very tasty!

middle of the road in all respects - aroma is nice but not necessarily enticing, good color, decent body and finish. flavors are a mix between grapefruit pith and pine. for a session IPA, it has a warm boozy aftertaste.

On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and snifter served displaying a hazed, orangey color, with a finger’s width of soft white foam that lingered briefly, leaving fair, doily-like lacing on the glass. The nose was some yeasty funk, a hint of agave sweetness, light spice, citrus as orange, and hints of barrel & tequila. The taste was somewhat similar notes, light to medium bodied, with okay spritz to the effervescence, and a bit of tartness. Bitterness was dry, earthy, tannic, and slightly herbal, with a finish that was not altogether favorable to me. Maybe it was the work of the tequila on the wood, but it reminded me of a specific, herbal & worm wood liqueur.

appearance: Pours a maple syrup colored body with a nice haze and a good sized head. Smell: Reserved but i’m able to coax out some caramel & hops. Mouthfeel: Nutty with some caramel and overlaid with roasted notes. An underlying hop bitterness nicely compliments the taste. A hint of chocolate in the finish.
