The leaves are starting to change, which means that I will have to start cleaning them soon. It’s one of my least favorite outdoor tasks. This beer is reminding me of the summer…
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Situated at the corner of Fulton & Wood streets in Chicago, Goose Island’s original brewery has been a hub of innovation since its doors opened. To this day, the spirit of experimentation remains strong with the Fulton & Wood series. Each release gives Goose Island employees from throughout the company the chance to work with our brewers to concept new, exciting beers from scratch. Celebrate summer with Goose Island’s C.A.L.M. Radler. Our Cucumber And Lime Mint Radler starts out as a balanced wheat ale with a light and crisp flavor and a creamy smooth body that is then blended with a sparkling cucumber, mint, and lime soda to create a perfectly refreshing summer radler.”
Random: Any drink with cucumber in it reminds me of summer.
The beer poured with a half finger of white head that dissipated instantly. The body was murky and yellow with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was filed with cucumber and lemon lime soda. I wish it had some mint to it. The taste was also filled with cucumber and lemon juice. It quickly went into lemon lime soda and then had a touch of mint. It needed some more mint. There was some wheat as well. The body was light and watery with low carbonation that needed to be increased dramatically. It had an instant finish with lemon lime soda. A bottle of this was $1.58, which came to $.13 per ounce. I thought this beer was okay, but just a bit too watery and needed some more flavor.
