Pours a clear, bright golden orange with a foamy one-finger cream-colored head that took a fairly aggressive pour to produce (the first pour produced little more than a ring).
Smells of Belgian yeast, pears, sweet citrus and a hint of alcohol.
Taste is overwhelmingly malty sweet with slight pepperiness. Bananas, ripe oranges, pears, candy sugar for the most part. Some slight tartness midway through. A little too sugary -- not great balance, but pleasant enough.
Mouthfeel is one of spritzy carbonation and a slightly oily smoothness. In terms of drinkability, it's smooth enough to go down very easily. But you do really feel the alcohol quite a bit for one that's not overly strong according ot the stats.
Overall a pretty solid Belgian-style pale. It's no Duvel, but it's no slouch either. Glad I got the chance to try this one.

Had on tap at O'Hare airport out of a wine glass. It poured a pretty auburn-orange, really nice appearance. The nose had notes of nuts, spices, and yeast. The flavor was similar, but stronger than the nose let on. Not usually a huge Goose Island guy, but this is a good one.

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.
