Goose Island Madame Rose-2012 edition. Flanders Oud Bruin style. Chicago, IL. 7.1% ABV.
Served chilled from a 22oz bomber and poured into a red wine glass. Pours a reddish brown color with absolutely no head. Smells are of cherries, and a ton of yeast in this. The nose is also very tart, but not reminiscent of an American-style sour. It seems like an aged Belgian Trappist Ale with cherries and other fruits added. Carbonation is light with a light-medium body. Taste is like the smell. Tart and puckering, much more so than the time I had it on tap.
I love this beer, and was thrilled to find a bottle of the 2012 edition. Check out my previous review from June 8th below: I think you will find the results were similar. It aged quite well, and my taste buds were not affected by anything else. The time I had it before I had a Bourbon County Coffee right before, so the sour was a HUGE contrast. This time it was much more subtle, and it was a totally different tasting experience. I think I will rate it very similar, perhaps a tad higher.
