COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons.

Great spring summer beer. Large floral notes with a citrus sweet flavor on the tongue. A slight tart and champagne feel on the palate. enjoyable, one of my preferred beers from goose island. reminiscent of the Festina Peche from dog fish head.

28/II/14 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB: 21/I/16 (2014-225) Thanks to Nathan for the bottle!

Clear pale yellow beer, aery irregular white head, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: very dirty, unpleasant, artificial bretta, lemony. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body, weird slick oily texture. Taste: dirty start, artifical bretta, rotten fruits, lemony, fruity touch as well, you sort of get used to it, but not really. Aftertaste: lemony, little bitter, peaches, overripe banana peel, orange peel, floral, some honey. Nope, this isn’t cutting it for me...

Draft. Citrus bitterness with yeast. Bready, banana, cloves and yeast flavors. The yeast coats the mouth.

Pours a pale yellow. Slight haze. Long lasting white head. Smells of apricot, peach and urine(in a good way). Funky aroma. Taste of banana and peach, with a peppery finish. The Belgium yeast shines through and is the star of the show.

A pleasant farmhouse ale with an aroma reminiscent of fields of recently cut wheat. Has a sweet and slightly bitter long finish and a golden color.

Nouveauté au Québec. Bière de couleur jaune paille, avec une mousse généreuse qui la chapeaute. Nez très intéressant d’eau de rose, de fruits tropicaux, d’ananas mûrs. En bouche, c’est puissant et complexe. Les arômes sont vraiment intéressants et difficiles à décrire : néanmoins, je sens la présence des agrumes, des pommes vertes, du poivre rose et de l’ananas auxquels se mélange un goût de levure belge particulièrement bien. Il y a un petit côté Brett ou encore qui rappelle le cuir, mais beaucoup moins prononcé que dans la Matilda de la même brasserie, que j’ai moins appréciée d’ailleurs. Excellent produit, peut-être un peu coûteux mais qui vaut la peine. Je vais la racheter sans aucun doute malgré son coût de 10 $. Cheers!.

Nero55 (487) - Leeds, Alabama, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Straw/orange with very large frothy white head. Aroma of Belgian notes, pear, and citrus. Light body with pear, yeast, light spice notes, and a hint of hop bitterness. Finishes with a slight sour finish. Very nice.

Belle découverte nouvellement distribuée par ici... Ce que je préfère de ce produit est son parfum fuité, sa belle acidité bien dosée et sa finale qui se complexifie graduellement.

Very pleasant saison, pouring clear with appropriate carbonation. Some funkiness and on the dry side, with residual yeastiness which lingers. Just a bit on the sour side, pepper does come through without any other spice or citrus to detract.

First time trying something from Goose Island and blown away. Great beer and looking forward to Matilda.
