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.

MJGG (951) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2010
Bouteille de 22 oz, rapportée de Chicago. Arômes de levure de saison, belle touche d’agrumes. Robe blonde et trouble, très belle mousse et effervescence active. En bouche, la levure est présente avec des touches de bananes et de fruits, mais semble moins rustique qu’au nez. Belle touche d’agrumes. Le passage dans les fûts de chêne se fait sentir par une finale légèrement vineuse et boisée. Intéressant.

Pours a rather bright golden color with very slight haze, large bubbled head, and tons of lace. Tons of carbonation in this beer that is mesmerizing to watch. Nose has some orange & funky yeasty aromas. On the palate there is a nice citrus flavor with light wheaty malt. Easy drinking and refreshing.

OldMrCrow (1870) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle (Gotta love the label -- gorgeous packaging).

Probably my favorite goose island beer to date, especially if I don’t view it as a saison. Aroma is the distinctive house character of their belgian-style yeast, plus a very nice tart oaky bite from the wine barrels. Too strong on the banana esters for my taste and too sweet for a saison in my book, it nonetheless is a very nice beer largely because of the magic that took place in the barrels.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle. Aroma of orange, vanilla cream, oak and a subtle sour funky fruity note that is just so delicate and charming. What a sweety of a beer. Pale yellow orange hue with a large white foamy head that diminished and left good lace. Taste is sweet and fruity with a creamy finish. Palate is medium bodied and lively. What a beautiful, charming and sweet beer. Like a refined young woman kissed by the late afternoon sun. Elegant and delecious. Sofie, I love you, now give me some sugar baby :)
