Pours a dark amber with a very creamy head which lingers for a while.. Nearly perfect. Has sort of a bready, fruity flavor that is reminiscient of red apples. Yeasty (in a typical Belgian way, not overly-yeasty). A bit malty and biscuit-like, as well. Aroma is quite faint, really not much to notice at all. Some bread and fruitiness, but very little. Mouth has a decent medium body and light carbonation. It is smooth and fairly-tasty, easy to drink but a bit lacking in areas.
Serving type: on-tap

Picked up a 12 ounce bottle from the local bottle shop (took a try on a 2013... thought it could handle the age well)... not expecting be knocked out but wanting to give another Goose Island a try. Poured into my tulip glass. Nothing tremendous on appearance... unfiltered (that's ok), 1/2 finger of head was gone quickly, interesting mahogany hue. The aroma was awesome... raisins and dark fruit, apples or pears, molasses, and of course, Belgium. Aside from the presence of alcohol in the taste, all of the aromas were strong in the flavor profile. Not a ton of the 'funk', and overall a great flavor balance. Velvety mouthfeel... one of the most enjoyable I have tried for mouthfeel. Overall, this was excellent... great balance to this beer, and a pleasant surprise. As a big IPA and stout guy, before long I might be drawn to more of the Belgian styles... pick one up.
