Pours a clear medium amber with a thin head that disappeared almost immediately leaving just a small swirl of foam around the edges of the glass.
Aroma is yeast and fruit. The fruit reminds me of sweet tart cherries. A bit of floral coming out as well.
The first sip of this beer and I am a bit disappointed. A nice flavor, but very mild compared to the aroma. I am again getting the tart sweet cherry or apple flavors mixed with a light spice and a floral finish on the palate.
Light body with medium carbonation. Watery and slightly dry on the finish.
Overall I like this beer, but wish that the flavor had a more robust character similar to the aroma. I am enjoying this beer and appreciate the "different factor" in this Goose Island brew. The fruit flavors are refreshing. Give one a try!
"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
