Goose Island Sofie

Goose Island Sofie

This Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale is brewed out of Chicago IL at the Goose Island brewery and it has a 6.5% ABV. Goose Island states on the bottle that this beer is ” 80% Belgian Style Ale and 20% Belgian Style Ale aged in wine barrels and orange peel”.

I found this beer to pour a light hazy golden color with a nice head that laced the glass. The aroma is rather pleasing as it contains spice, oranges, and citrus notes. When tasting the beer I found it to be rather tart however it had a pleasant light mouthfeel. I also found this wonderful beer to have nice citrus, and orange tones with a slight bitter finish that contains a hint of vanilla.

I would strongly recommend you pick this beer up as I found it to be wonderful. It was light bodied however packed a big flavorful punch.
