Thanks to Goose Island for this bottle to review! Poured into a GI belgian glass.
Appearance is a cloudy straw yellow body with a fizzy white head which dissipated into minimal rimming and no lacing.
Smell is of lactate, delicate strawberry, surprisingly strong pepper, some other tropical fruit like kiwi and mango, and lemon.
Taste is of soft sweet fruit, primarily strawberry, tart but not too sour, pepper is somewhat subdued throughout but perhaps present on the very back end.
Mouthfeel is effervescent, light to medium body, smooth, mildly sticky and dry, very drinkable.
Overall, for the price this is definitely a once in a while treat, but this was a very, very enjoyed beer. Great fruit flavor and sour notes are just perfect with a good balance of sweet, tart, and pepper. Very drinkable.
