We're opening 4 Goose Island Belgian style beer four-packs - Sofie, Matilda, Pere Jacques and Pere Nero. Sofie has a subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish, an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons. Matilda is wild in character, with a slightly fruity aroma and a spicy yeast flavor that is as unique as it is satisfying, an intriguing choice for beer and wine lovers alike. Pere Jacques is brewed with loads of malt and Belgian yeast, a wonderfully fruity, malty ale with complex flavors that stand shoulder to shoulder with the Belgian Dubbels enjoyed in the world’s finest beer bars. Pere Nero has an aroma of roasted chestnuts and a mysteriously dark, mahogany hue. Pepe Nero is a farmhouse ale brewed with black peppercorns, with roasty sweetness that melds into a lingering, earthy, black pepper finish, ideal for pairing with grilled meats and roasted vegetables.
