3.78/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 22oz brown pop top with minimalist, classy label. 2012 vintage. Purchased at UFS for $17.99. Split five ways in celebration with my family and wife.
Appearance: This pours a hazy walnut, with a dark ivory cap which soon fades to nothing.
Smell: First and foremost, there's a big funky Brett presence, with vibrant fruit underneath, a hint of cherry pie, and perhaps a bit of Fruit Tart candy.
Taste: On the palate, this is fruit-forward, sweet cherries, and crusty brown bread (this last is quite nice for balancing out the fruit). This is a simple, straightforward beer, as it's still fairly young, but the sweet/tart/fruity flavors play off of each other nicely.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied.
Overall: Really pleasant brew overall. This is definitely a very easy 'wild beer' to like, and will likely appeal (at least while it's young) to those who don't like funky/wild brews. Make no mistake, this is excellent beer. Nonetheless, at $18.00 for a 22oz bottle, this is something I wouldn't likely buy more than once. Still, perhaps the best of Goose's 'Three Sisters'.
89% B+ (would be higher if not for the price)

Pours a light reddish amber color with a white head. The aroma is fruity, sweet and sour and a bit oaky. Inviting and quality funky aroma. In the taste, nice acetic sourness and plenty of depth to it as well. A solid base beer is behind the sourness, with sugar plum, cherry and berry notes. This plays nicely with the oak and the sour. Everything is in good balance and the flavor really pops. Body is medium and semi dry with a lingering sour note. Overall, this is a really nice American Wild or Flanders Red. It kind of reminds me of a kriek lambic, not a surprise due to the Michigan cherries employed here. Good to savor every sip.
Serving type: on-tap
