G: Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Beautiful orange-pink rose color with a frothy, slightly pink head.

S: Mostly sour notes. Tart fruit of cherries and blackberries.

T: Sweet and sour from the outset. Makes you pucker on the first sip, and then mellows more into the fruity, sweet flavors, especially as it warms more toward room temperature.

M: Sour on the tip of the tongue and the sides of the cheeks. Very light and crisp. Moderate to minimal carbonation.

D: Very solid overall. Goose Island is really stepping up its game with the new collection.

A - Poured out a clear, burgundy color with a one-finger, fizzy head of off-white foam. It left thin traces of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of blackberries, rye and sour notes.

T - Good sour taste with some sweetness from the blackberries. Some rye and funky brett kicks in later.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry clean finish.

O - This is a really good wild ale. Love the sourness and funkiness.

2012 vintage

Light fizzy head disappears quickly, clear candi orange red color.

Nose sour lacto and vinous funk, acidic, sour malt. Weird glue thing.

Taste big lacto sour, sticky sour flemmy, big tart blackberry, little phenolic acetone, solventy, big acidity, tangy vinous barrel like notes. Finish flemmy tart sticky sour, lingering tart berry.

Bottled January 09. Not a gusher. Pinkish orange with generous carbonation and three fingers of fizzy-crackly foam that shrinks to two fingers... then one... then disappears in mere minutes, leaving the glass virtually untouched. The beer itself is an interesting hue, but no head and no lace is difficult to reward.

The nose is wall-to-wall Brettanomyces with an undercurrent of berry-like fruitiness that isn't strong enough to be identified as blackberries. Oak is present. Cabernet, not so much. All in all, a solid aroma if you're a fan of the style.

Juliet is a delicious wild ale that does not pay homage to all of its various ingredients on the palate. In particular, the earthiness of rye malt is absent and blackberres are still not obvious. Having said that, there's a tart and acidic fruitiness akin to gourmet berry or red wine vinegar.

A (very) little bit of malt sweetness keeps this ale from being a total pucker bomb, but it's still much more sour than funky or horse blanket-like. Pilgrim hops do next to nothing in terms of flavor or bitterness, which is as it should be. Time and warming don't help and don't hurt. For what it's worth, neither the next lowest taste score nor the next highest was considered.

The mouthfeel is the only real fly in the ointment (other than the appearance). It's too thin, even when ABV is taken into account, and the bubbles have that 'sharp early and lazy late' feel with which some bottle-conditioned beer is cursed.

Sour fanatics will probably love Juliet. In my view, this is a damn good wild ale that could have been a great wild ale if it toned down the wild yeast just a little and emphasized its other 'ingredients' (rye malt, blackberries and Cabernet-soaked oak) just a little more.

2009 Vintage. Bottled August 14.

Appearance: Pours a hazed, reddish-pink body with a very tall, rather fizzy, lightly pink head.

Smell: Airy nose of tart-scented berry-based spread, oak-based barrels, and a particularly small spoonful of salty bleu cheese crumbles tucked in back.

Taste: There's a brief, light opening of sweet maltiness. A handful of berries, both ripened and unripened, firmly funky barnyard phenolics, and with a robust, zesty oak wood presence throughout. Though blackberries were used, it all keeps coming up tartish raspberries. Not overtly flavorful, the fruit, though ample for the proceedings. Modesty lactic. Cracklingly acidic. You'll likely pucker. One drop of lemon juice, then a continued subtle fruitiness into the dry, fizzy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Highly carbonated.

Drinkability: There's freely wild funkiness, there's fruit, and plenty of bubbles. Interesting and enjoyable for a bottle's worth.

A huge thanks for getting this one over to me. It had been sitting on my wants forever. Brought over with the rest of the lineup for the xmas night tasting, this one was consumed on 12/25/2009.

The pour was decent. A light pink in color with a huge head of white that came up over the top to a height of around an inch before dropping back down to earth with little in the way of lacing. Aroma was wonderful though. Nice touches of raspberries, hints of light cherry and a touch of sour apples as well. Really quite nice, and very light and refreshing. Smooth and light flavor here as well. Not especially sour, but people need to realize a wild ale does not need to be sour. Anyway. Cherries and Raspberries dominate here, light touches of grape skin, apples and a smooth, and light sugary note to it as well. Light feel and nice prickly carbonation give it an almost champagne like feel, but the drinkability remains very high.

Overall I really enjoyed this. Nice light fruit notes, quick hit of tart flavor and a nice and even profile kept me coming back for more. I would have no problem at all trying this one again.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/11/2010. Pours lightly cloudy red-orange color with a 1-2 finger foamy off white head with decent retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big tart blackberry, raspberry, green apple, red grape, oak, clove, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, pepper, musty brett funk, leather, rye, toast, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity and balance of tart fruit, fruity/funky brett, malt, and barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of tart blackberry, raspberry, green apple, red grape, oak, clove, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, pepper, musty brett funk, leather, rye, toast, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of fruity acidic tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart blackberry, raspberry, green apple, red grape, oak, clove, red wine vinegar, hay, straw, musty funk, rye, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of tart fruits, wine barrel, and big fruity/funky brett presence; with a great malt/acidity balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible fruited sour ale with 3 years of age. Big brett presence with great balance of wine barrel and blackberry fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on with the balanced acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.

2009 release acquired from pochman courtesy of BA Secret Santa 2009 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a flute glass.

A: The beer is a bright reddish amber color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, tart berries, light caramelized malts and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out very sour with flavors of grapes and berries plus some potent wild Belgian yeast. There is a thin malt character and a very faint touch of hops as you would expect from this type of beer. I can appreciate the intense sourness and if that’s what you like, then this beer will appeal to you, but to me it seems like any actual taste gets over-powered. The after-taste is tart.

M: Smooth and very crisp, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

D: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, it’s a decent beer overall but there are better sour beers out there.

Had this on Darkness Day

Bottled Aug. 14, 2009

Pours a light peach pint color. The head is white with a pink hue to it.

Aroma: tart fruits, very sour, raspberries, strawberries, and more fruit.

Taste: Very sour again with a lot of raspberries. Big strawberry flavor. Fresh hops. Very nice and well done.

Mouthfeel: Fresh feel to it and very refreshing. Very clean. Medium bodied. High, but good carbonation. Sour and tart.

Overall, another one of those beers that I just want more of. Easy drinking and a ton of nice sour flavors. I can't wait to see what age does to this one.

Thank you to Jeff for sending me a couple of these way back. Opened one up on the 4th weekend.

I made sure this one was ice cold to avoid gushing and opened it over the sink just in case. No beer lost, but it did foam up quite aggressively.

A: The pour is a cloudy pink-orange color with a very fluffy head that is mostly white but perhaps has a pinkish hue to it.

S: Quite a bit of fruitiness to the nose. Raspberries and strawberries seem to be the most noticeable, along with a hint of lemon and grapes. A fair amount of oak to this one as well.

T: Surprisingly vinous in terms of the flavor. Lots of oak, red grapes, raspberries, and blackberries. The sourness is not as intense as other wilds, but the tartness is nice.

M: The body is medium and the carbonation is very plentiful, perhaps too much so at first. But as the beer calms down from its initial gushing, it is more pleasant.

D: A pretty easy to drink wild ale. Not overly sour, but good fruit character and a nice bit of oak to it. Glad to have another bottle.

Served in a Local Option cervoise.

Figured I'd celebrate my birthday with some bottle, might as well be a shelf sour (check my local's shelf...it's definitely there...). It pours a mostly clear sunrise auburn topped by a half-finger at best of dirty off-white foam. The nose comprises sweet berries, light tart cherry, very light and very mild Brett funk, and a kiss of vanilla. The taste eschews the eminent sweetness of the smell in favor of a few waves of varying degrees of sour: tart berries, sour cherries, tart red wine, a small bit of straight Brett funk, and a bit of white vinegar for the sake of it. Nothing is exceedingly powerful, though, allowing everything to meld together without o'erwhelming the taste buds or peeling the enamel off of the teeth. This is what sour beer brewers should be aiming for, dammit! The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a sticky finish. Overall, a very nice bit o' sour goodness, one of the premier beers I've yet had from Goose as a whole. Happy birthday to me!

2009 vintage poured from a 22oz bottle into my Allagash glass. It poured reddish amber in color with a full and active white head overflowing from the glass.

The aroma has a good dose of sourness to it. I get some sharp, acidic notes followed by some tart, fruity flavors. I get a little of a blackberry or cherry flavor coming out as well as just a hint of the oak barrel.

The taste shows more of the sharp sourness to it up front. It's a little acidic but not too bad. In the finish more of the fruity, blackberry, cherry like flavors come out and bring some tartness with them. A good amount of earthy Brett shows in the finish as well. It's more towards the acidic and tart side than the funky sour side. It's good, but didn't have the depth of some of the best in the style.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied for the style and carbonation is very high. Overall it was a pretty good beer, but not one of the best of the style. It felt lacking depth at times and a little acidic as well. I enjoyed it, but the Cisco sour I had earlier was much better.

From 07/29/11 notes. Received in the Gang Bang BIF courtesy of the Chicago group; thanks guys! Poured into a SAVOR snifter. Bottle #1154 bottled on 12/11/10.

a - Pours a hazy reddish pink color with one inch of white head and light carbonation evident.

s - Smells of tart cherries and raspberries, lots of brett, and red wine. Very sour and funky, I really love the nose.

t - Taste of tart raspberries and dark fruits, brett, acedic notes, light spice, oak, and red wine. Again, loads of sour dark fruits and brett; really great.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation.

o - Overall a really great wild ale. I think I liked this one better than Lolita; really looking forward to Madame Rose. Lots of funky brett and sour raspberries; would highly recommend and would like to have again.

Pours a fully clouded red hued brown. Nose is just funky sour goodness. Flavor brings the same. Lots of sour. Lots of funk. Tart fruits on top of vinegar. Yes friends. This is an American Wild Ale. Feel is typical; kind of thicker with a lower and slightly biting carbonation. Mmmmm. My favorite style. I love it.

Paul shared this at a recent tasting. Thanks man!

A: Ruby and orange hues with a medium-sized white head filled with tiny bubbles.

S: Fantastic aromas of brettanomyces and cherries.

T: This beer is not incredibly sour, but refreshingly tart. The taste is world class. I thoroughly enjoyed my glass and savored every drop. Blackberry flavors shine.

M: Lactic start and acetic in the finish. High carbonation in the feel with a little kick at the end.

D: A really great beer. Highly recommended.

Several samples of this care of CaptinRedBeard, thank you Corey for sharing. Poured into a 6oz snifter this brew appears a light almost orange color with a redish ruby hue all about it. The head appears as even a redish stained cap of foam that is more than a finger strong with quite a bit of fizz to it. Lacing sticks in patches and slips to just a layering of bubbles around the interior perimeter of the glass.

The nose of this brew is dominated by brett. Loads of earthy bretted goodness smelling of wet leather run all through the nose of this brew. Some slight, almost cheesy suggestions are evident. Once the glass was emptied and before another sample was poured, the smell of berries was left clinging inside the glass. It was a very fresh smelling fruity scent reminescent of raspberry and it is a shame it is hidden beneath the brett while the glass is full.

The taste of this brew is very carbonated. Continuous swirls attempt to release the carbonation and tame this brew down a little. It takes some effort to make it drinkable but it is worth it. A flavor of brett runs rampid through this brew with a taste of wet leather and minor puckering quality. Quite drying finish with earthy notes that are almost grassy and cheese like that hang inside the mouth. This is a light bodied brew that is excessively carbonated. Overall though it was quite enjoyable.

650 mL bottle poured into a chalice. Bottle dated 1/26/2012.

Appearance - Pinkish. Cloudy with a nice white head. Settles to a white collar.

Smell - Vinous winey acidity. Red wine notes. Musty and maybe some brett.

Taste - Fruity grape sourness. More vinous wine notes. Pleasantly tart, but not intense by any means. Oaky and malty in the finish.

Mouthfeel - A touch sweet from the fruitiness, but the tartness balances it out. Medium bodied.

Overall - Solid. Better than Lolita by a fair margin. Muted fruit notes yield a nice sour beer behind it.

Received in trade from ajzy, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a lightly hazy deep golden color with a huge fluffy bone white head that that dissipates as quickly as the bubbles in a glass of ginger ale. Tart and funky fruit dominate the aroma here. Lemons, cherries, and berries with lots of lactic sourness and funk make up most of the nose with hints of brown sugar deep in the background. The flavor puckers your face up front with lemons and tart cherries. Light brown sugar malt sneaks in before the citric return and burns a hole deep into your nether region. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick tart puckering mouthfeel. Nice American wild, I'm glad I got to try it.

Poured from the bottle, vintage 2012, into a tulip glass.

Real gorgeous body color, a clear to mild opaque red raspberry and orange peach hued body. Head doesn't form much but leaves barely a collar, settles like a nice wine. Looks like an amazing lambic, love this color.

Nose is red fruits of cherry and raspberry. Jammy. Mild tartness, off the pour it seemed strong from a distance, but closer it's subdued. No sense of heat, or real punching yeast, just like a good solid lambic.

Bent first hints with a tomato V8 quality. As it warms up, more of the fruit action comes in with a nice tartness. Mouthfeel is very crisp, prickly, but not detracting. No sense of heat alcohol, or sharp yeast. Good acidity without any craziness.

Seriously, while the tomato action really reminds me of Zwanze 2011, this brew could easily pass for a solid Cantillon. Very impressed

Bottle opened by Paul (Lunch) at a small tasting. Thanks Paul. Beer is amber to ruby red and forms a pink head of small bubbles. Leaves some lacing on the glass. Looks good.

Aroma is GREAT! Lactic with some leather and mild acetic notes to it. Very good.

Beer is thin and moderately acidic. The sourness comes through but its more subtle than the aroma would lead you to believe. Body builds on you and there is some growing tartness in the back. Overall its a good example of a brett beer.

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle.

2009 vintage. The beer pours an orange-pink color with a large white head that has a pink tint. The aroma is pretty tart with some blackberry and oak. The flavor is not near as tart as the aroma led me to believe it would be. I get some oak with a hint of blackberries as well as some lemon tartness. The fruit comes out more as the beer warms up. Fizzy carbonation and a medium mouthfeel. The beer is very prickly on the tongue. The beer reminded me a little bit of LeBleu, but that may just be the mouthfeel and carbonation. I wish the carbonation was toned down a bit.

Bottle shared by Pino, bottled December 11, 2010; into a tulip.

Pours a cloudy brownish red, with an transient offwhite that falls to a think collar. Nose gives off sour notes immediately, cherry, raspberry and some less noticeable blackberry. Wild notes and lots of funk, oak and some sweetness as well. Taste echoes the nose, piercing sour cherries and raspberry throughout. Some tannins, puckering and juicy feel. Some vanilla and general barrel character as well. High carbonation, and an impressive sour.

Jan 2009 Bottle; Sampled November 2009
This pours into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip with a two-finger thick, pale beige colored head. It is a murky amber hue that shows a honey-like, somewhat clear hue when held up to the light. The aroma is funky, musty and reminds me of an overly ripe, funky farmhouse cheese, perhaps even some moldy toe-jam character as well as a musky, goat-like, huge Brettanomyces funkification; this last being the most dominant aromatic note. Hints of fruit are just noticeable underneath the Brettanomyces onslaught; berry seed like aromatics, musk berry (almost elderberry like), tannic berry skin aromatics; this doesn't have a dominant, clean or bright berry character to it, which is usually what I like to find in a fruit beer. The fruit character evokes thoughts of cherries, some rose and perhaps a touch of Brandy more than it makes me think of raspberries. There are some pepper-like aromatics here, some spicy wood character as well as a touch of toasted oak that is noticeable at times.

My first impression of the flavor is that this has a fizzy carbonation that is mixed with a lightly bracing tartness. This is quite sour and has a carbonic bite to it in the finish as well. This is quite dry feeling, with the finish leaving an oak-flavored, slightly astringent, palate drying character that lingers on the tongue. This couples with a slightly phenolic, musty cotton ball note. The fruitiness is quite dry with a slightly tannic fruit-skin character, some grass-like berry-seed flavors and the tartness evokes hints of sour berry flavors. There is a firm oak character that provides structure to this beer; it is perhaps the most noticeable character here, especially after the palate adjusts to the lactic acidity. The oak boosts the body / palate presence and provides flavors of fresh cut wood -planks as well as a sometimes Bourbon like spiciness. The oak and acid combination make me think of a white wine at times, though there is a touch of berry-fruit flavors here too. Overall this has a medium'ish body to it that is not heavy and even somewhat light, but it has a palate presence that can even be creamy in texture at times.

As the beer warms up the berry notes come out more in the nose; even some jam-like notes become noticeable (a sort of cranberry, cherry and blackberry mixed jam of sorts). My second pour is a bit more murky and the aroma even gets more funkified in its wild farmhouse cheesiness. The funk is here in the flavor, though it is not nearly as noticeable as it is in the aroma; musty, somewhat musky flavors and a butyric bite all contribute to the flavor profile.

This is an interesting, funky beer that is quite enjoyable. The oak can be a bit much at times and despite the complexity, it isn't as well balanced as I would like. This is a very solid offering though, but I definitely prefer Sofie to this beer. The funkiness of the nose is much appreciated by this lover of funky beers though.

Poured a 2009 Juliet, it burst open and foamed everywhere for about five minutes, the activity in the beer was insane

Appearance: poured very slowly with a billowing foamy head, took about five to ten minutes to calm down, had a creamy white head with flashes of burgundy here and there, good amount of sediment in the foam, very very active and carbonated, a rich burgundy in appearance

Smell: smelled of wine and sour raspberries

Taste: sour and flavorful, tastes of sour raspberries and is kind of wine-esque yeasty after taste

Mouthfeel: very active and a lot of carbonation, great appeal, medium bodied

Drinkability: it's a good beer but is a little too sour for my liking, it's worth a try but beware of the exploding batch from 2009

Last beer of the evening (at least for me) at Dyan's the other night.

The beer pours a hazy rose color with good head retention and lacing. Nose is pretty unusual, with a blend of raspberry and sour funk. The funk and sour aren't too overwhelming, and like the flavors on the palate, this is not an intensely aromatic beer. Flavors replicate the nose, but seem just a bit muddled. It comes across as pretty much a dumbed down sour, a beer where the sour dominates but there just isn't all that much flavor. Mouthfeel is fairly light, and the beer is a bit short on the finish. Drinkability is fair in this simple, one dimensionable sour beer from Goose Island.

I guess it's not bad for a first effort, but can't say I was overwhelmingly impressed.
