Beer of the Week: Goose Island Sofie

Head Over Beers

Goose Island SofieGoose Island Sofie (6.5% alcohol): This saison/farmhouse ale from Goose Island Beer Company in Chicago pours a hazy, straw yellow with a small, thin head that doesn’t last long. The aroma is made up of fruity citrus, grass, earthy yeast and a bit of musty funk. Tart orange citrus mixed with breadiness and caramel malt is complemented by peppery spiciness and finishes with a bit of sweetness. Sofie manages to have a nice, clean finish even with its complex flavor profile. This is a light, refreshing, highly drinkable beer that pairs well with many of my favorite summer dishes such as Beer Steamed Clams.

Sofie was awarded the Bronze Medal – Belgian and French Style Saison award at the Great American Beer Festival in 2011.
