Pours a cloudy dark orange with a small off white head which vanishes quickly, and leaves no lacing. The aroma has tart fruit, Belgian yeast, barnyard funk, and wood. Smells very acidic.

Tastes tart with some sweetness. There is tart fruit, Belgian yeast, barnyard funk, wood, tannin, sugar, and dark fruit. Very nice. According to what I have read blackberries are in this beer, but they are difficult to detect. If I had not read that blackberries were in this beer, I would not have known.

Light bodied with appropriate carbonation. Has a tart fruit aftertaste. A very nice easy beer to drink.

2013 vintage poured into a tulip.

Pours a gorgeous amber color. Effervescent head that dissipates very quickly.

Smells very funky. Got some tart fruit, a little wood, and some vinegar.

I was expecting more blackberries in the taste. It's there, but it very subtle so I was a little disappointed in that regard. Other than that, it tastes great. Great white wine characteristics. Apple, raspberry, blueberry.

Light body with a great dry finish.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this and am now looking forward to trying the other GI Sister beers.
