A classic love of mine, this is great juice!
Pours an absolutely beautiful golden orange, hazy. Big billowing marshmallow head that dissipates to a nice thin lace.
Smell is fresh and very Bretty! in a very good way. Orange blossom.
Taste is clovey, orange rind, more farm funk from the Brett, almost like quinine on the back end. Lacking a bit of freshness but I think this is an older bottle as I haven't noticed this trait before. A little piney but lacking much hop character. Light bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel is the only area this falls off at all. Not quite as smooth as I would like but still very nice light to medium body with a touch of cream.
Overall, this is an exceptional brew that I will continue purchase along with any other Goose Island products I can get my hands on!
