I poured them from a 25oz bottle. This beer has a blush colored body with no head. The aroma has a tart raspberry smell to it. The taste is the same as the smell tart, raspberry flavor to it. The mouthfeel is dry but smooth and overall this is excellent beer, I hope I can get a hold of the other sisters.

Goose Island Lolita (Thanks to ncketchum for the bottle)

Poured from a 765 ml bottle into a CBS snifter. Served chilled....

A) Not much head on this reddish pinkish looking brew. Kind of sitting in the snifter like some juice.

S) Sweet super funky raspberry. You can pick out the yeast and some oaky earthy lemon zest.

T) Again, quite funky... Nice and tart. Raspberry with some lemon peel shavings. The alcohol is very well hidden. Vey tasty....

M) Medium bodied with lighter carbonation. For as much as this is lip smacking and mouthwatering, it is remarkably smooth at the same time.

O) Another solid offering from Goose Island. You simply can't go wrong drinking their barrel aged and Belgian offerings. Glad to recommend this beer.
