The folks from Goose Island added a Roselaire culture to a light brown ale and aged this for 9 months resulting in a very drinkable Belgian brown ale. Though there is a distinctive earthbound tartness to this Belgian ale, the malt quality gives this beer a surprisingly warm depth.

Tap at Blind Tiger Alehouse. Hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is quite nice with a bright aroma of bourbon and soft maltiness. It’s got a fairly prominent woody/bourbony sweetness. It’s got a fairly nice tartness as well. A kiss of orange peel and a bit of soft wild yeast. Lightly oaky on the back. Chewy and sweet with a lightly earthy character. I think with a few more months, this could be great... right now it’s a little indistinct.
