Served on tap in a Goose Island wide mouth wine glass at Tap Room 307 on June 6, 2014. Pours a clear, reddish-brown color with a small head that disappears almost instantly. Smells are of dark fruit, mostly cherries, and has a funky sour nose. The carbonation is medium, and tastes of cherries and yeast. The aftertaste is heavily sour, and causes a pucker at the end.
This was the next edition in my recent sour kick. Surprisingly I had never heard of this variation until I went to the Goose Island tap-takeover, but after reading the style and reviews, quickly knew it was something I needed to try. It was different than most of the other sours I had tried, as this one was brewed in the Belgian-sour style. These beers are typically characterized by a vinegary or lactic sour taste and smell, and contain little to no hop aroma.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It was very refreshing and is a nice sipping beer. I will be on the lookout for a bottle of this for the cellar. Bravo Goose Island!
