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.

jeremyh70 (1034) - Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2013 Poured a hazy straw yellow with two fingers of white bubbly head that leaves behind good lacing. Aroma is subtle but complex with some lemon, cracker malt, light fruit sweetness and a bit of barnyard. Taste has the same subtle complexities. Lemon, orange and light fruit flavors with the cracker malt followed by white pepper and an earthiness or leathery component. Just a hint of tartness and funk in the finish. Flavors are all wonderfully light and balanced, with nothing overpowering. Starts off with some sweetness but ends up being fairly dry with a medium mouthfeel. Very nice and drinkable cross between a Belgian pale and a saison. Really enjoyed. ---Jeremy H

Clara dourada,translúcida,espuma fina com baixa manutenção;no aroma e no sabor o frutado se destaca,apresentando frutas amarelas(pêssego,manga) acompanhado de uma leve acidez remetendo a uvas brancas;notas condimentadas e cítricas acompanham,corpo médio,álcool praticamente não é percebido,refrescante,alta "drinkability". Ótima cerveja,elegante e deliciosa.

davidezdonz (252) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 12, 2016
A 12 fl oz bottle bottled on 16th December 2015 and poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a slightly cloudy champagne gold colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some sparse lacing. Aromas are strong orange peel, juicy orange, lemon and white grape. Light funkiness with a hint of mango. Tastes a juicy mix of orange and lemon with a hint of mango. Light tartness, some peppery spice notes and a hint of bread on the finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate to high spritzy carbonation. Overall a great solid saison with nice juicy citrus notes. Very refreshing on a hot day.

willisread (2169) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle shared at the Goose Japan launch. Lemon and yogurt on the nose with some light grassy hops and crackery malts. Good yeast character as well. Clean and fairly crisp on the palate. Well-balanced with those crackery malts working well with the lemony tartness. Dry finish with a little vanilla that lingers. Not bad at all.
