Pours a hazy medium amber color with a orange type glow. The head is lively and requires time to let it settle before finishing the pour. The light tan head dissipates quickly leaving a thin milky swirl floating on top.
The aroma has a sour tartness with raspberries, cherry's, yeast and a bit of wood type scents. A farmhouse style funk wraps around the entire aroma. A very nice aroma that is bold and inviting.
The taste is very similar to the aroma with tart raspberry and cherries being the big flavors noticeable at first. Yeast and earthy flavors mingle with the tartness along with a light wood flavor. Tart on the finish and in the aftertaste.
Light body with high carbonation. Very drinkable with a crispness from the high level of carbonation.
Overall, a very enjoyable fruit Belgian style beer from Goose Island. A very nice sour with well rounded flavors and a crisp clean very drinkable personality. Try one!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
