Hazy brownish color with beige head. Aroma has light acetic notes, a hint of smoke, toasted malt and dark fruits. Taste has light sweetness, medium tartness, macerated cherries, light balsamico notes on the finish. Medium body with medium to low carbonation. Quite nice with some flanders style flavors.

Had a small pour at the Fulton Street taproom. An excellent Sour fruit ale. It is cherry forward, and has the right level of tartness without being over the top. The balance and restraint here is commendable.

Lots of complexity with the wine barrel aging - this is a beer that a cider or wine drinker would absolutely enjoy.

Very good sour. Pours a fairly clear bubbly amber/brown color from a 750 ml bottle into a flute. The delicately bubbly small white head don't last long and there is minimal lacing. Still a nicely carbonated, beautifully colored beer. Aroma is terrific, cherries, oak and a little vinegar. Really whets your appetite to taste it. Taste does not disappoint. Vinegary sourness is just right. A pucker factor but not an off-putting glass of vinegar. The cherries add a little bit of sweetness and a big amount of flavor. The oak presence is very noticeable but does not dominate the overall flavor. Really tasty, I could sip on this all day. Mouthfeel is light, beautifully carbonated. The sourness is just right. Goose Island really nailed the style. This is the first of four high-end beers I bought from this brewery. This one justifies the price, hope the others do as well!!!!

Had it on tap at Dive Bar, NYC. It pours an amber brown with a bold presence of ruby red. A modest frothy head forms a thin silky pillow. It quickly dissipates and leaves a thin ring collar.
In the aroma, the lemon tartness and sour cherries immediately stand out. On an even more intense note, a funky, vinous and oaky, Cabernet like, dry cider and vinegar like quality foretell what is to come in the taste.
The taste is quite intense and complex. The mouthfeel is oily and slick with a burning acidity, vinegar like quality, and stinging spiciness. Medium bodied, vinous, and oaky with a bone dry finish. Flavors of cherries present themselves as a centerpiece that take the edge off of the tartness.
A well done interpretation of a Belgian sour style. I enjoyed it.

On draught at Gaslight Social.

Pours a deep brown red, small head of foam that shrinks until only a ring around the glass remains. Even has some lacing.

Smells of tart cherries, oak, Brett.

Tastes of tart cherries, Brett and oak in that order. Finishes dry and funky.

Medium body with medium carbonation.

Nice AWA.

Semi deep Auburn color with hues of brick red. Lots of fizz with this one. Balanced really well with the Belgian style and malt playing quite well together with the fruit tartness and a nice amount if funk. Tart raspberries are nice and mixed fruit jelly. To the
