Goose Island new releases
Goose Island Gillian 2017....$8.99 / 12oz bottle
Inspired by an amuse bouche often prepared by the wife of one of our brewers, Gillian brings white pepper, strawberry, and honey to a harmonious blend. Partially aged in wine barrels, this Belgian style farmhouse ale is slightly tart and pleasantly sweet in a refreshingly effervescent body.
Goose Island Halia 2018....$22.99 / 765ml
Halia is a farmhouse ale aged in wine barrels with whole peaches, resulting in bright, effervescent fruit notes in a soft, hazy body that finishes slightly tart and sweet with the pleasant character of ripe, juicy peaches. Literally meaning “remembrance of a loved one” in Hawaiian, Halia was brewed in memory of the dear friend of one of our brewers who loved peaches.
Goose Island Madame Rose 2018...$22.99 765ml
Madame Rose is a crimson colored Belgian style brown ale fermented with wild yeast and aged on cherries in wine barrels. Layers of malty complexity, sour cherry, spice and wood notes make Madame Rose an ideal beer to suggest to Bordeaux enthusiasts and beer drinkers fond of Belgian Kriek and Flanders Brown Ales.
Goose Island Lolita 2018...$22.99 / 765ml
Lolita is a pink rose colored Belgian style pale ale fermented with wild yeast and aged on raspberries in wine barrels. Aromas of fresh raspberries, bright jammy fruit flavors and crisp, refreshing body make Lolita ideal for beer drinkers fond of Belgian Framboise.
Goose Island Brasserie Blanc....$17.99 / 765ml
A golden ale aged in wine barrels with Orange Muscat juice, Brasserie Blanc has an aroma of semi-sweet Muscat grapes and a delicate body. A touch of tartness is cut by a dry finish imparted by the yeast Brettanomyces, resulting in a flavor profile that is reminiscent of wild fermented old ales.
