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.

OldMrCrow (2079) - 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 :)

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAY 13, 2010
22oz bottle. Brilliant gold with a creamy, medium-sized white head. The aroma is fruity and sweet with prominent apricot and tangerine backed by frosting sweetness and a touch of oaky white wine. The flavor has a sweet candied pils malt thing going on with a touch of vinous character that manifests in alcohol and oak. Big orange fruitiness. Sweet and lightly syrupy in the finish, but light in body overall with lively carbonation. Somewhat interesting but too sweet and orange-dominated ovaral.
