4.41/5 rDev +9.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Just picked it up from the grocery store, so no refrigeration.
Appearance: Golden with a bit of haze and a nice, steady stream of bubbles. Poured with about a finger-width of foam at the top. Foam does a nice job of lingering, but not obnoxiously so.
Smell: Definitely... different. Get the bananas, cloves... I can't quite put my finger on what it is. Is this the "funk" that others are talking about? Interesting and complex, to say the least.
Taste: VERY complex. Yeasty, sweat, and with a hint of hops all in one sip. I keep having to drink this thing down just to be able to try and figure out all the different flavor notes. I may empty my glass just trying to figure this one out. This is REALLY REALLY delicious - that much I can say.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, and pretty clean. Lingers slightly, but it's not a bad linger by any stretch. Makes me want to drink more of it. Definitely not a bad thing.
Overall: I might down the entire 4 pack I bought tonight. This is disappearing from my glass at a surprising pace. Keeper! It'll be hard to cellar if I buy it because I'll just want to keep drinking it.

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. 5/21/14 is the date
A: the best part about this beer. It's a golden orange color with a thin layer of thick head and whisper lace on the glass
S: slight aroma or hops and orange peel
T: follows the smell right down to being slight.
M: light on the tung. I can see this being great on a hot day
O: a bit disappointed with this one. With the reputation goose island's rare and mainstream beers has. I was hoping the less popular would still be really good.
