  • Color: Pale Gold
  • Pours a cloudy deep yellow with a nice thick heavy head.

    The Aroma is rich in citrus and spice with a hint of yeast and white grapes.

    Taste is similar to the aroma with lots of citrus, spice, yeast and a dry white grape feel on the tongue.

    Overall and very enjoyable well balanced beer. Goose Island has another winner!

  • 8.5/10 have another
  • A: 7 | T: 9 | L: 9 | M: 9 | O: 9
  • Color: Pale Gold
  • Pours clear with ample, white, meringue, stiff foam on top. Retention is well above average while lacing was sticky and dry up front.

    Aroma is rather light. A touch of tart, sweet, juicy fruits, and spice. I like the aroma, just would like a bit more of it.

    Taste follows the nose to a 't.' Light flavors of juicy fruits, slight funk, spice, and sweet.

    Light body with a medium amount of carbonation that tingles the lips and stays on the back of the tongue.

    A solid beer all around but would have liked a bit more aroma, which would help the taste pop more also. Otherwise it is crisp and refreshing with just enough tart to know about it. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • 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.
