Sofie: Belgian style ale that rocks!

Chicago's other finest.

Chicago's other finest.

This $8.00 22oz. bottle of beer just might have been worth it.  Sofie is gold, cloudy, bubble and lively.  The bouquet has a hint of citrus/lemon, and is sweet and clean, and holds a spicey note for a long time.  It supports a 1/2″ thick head for a good long time.  It tastes tart and makes the taste buds stand at attention.  Theres a nice wheaty, malty quality in the finish, and at 6.5% ABV it make you feel real good.  I dig this stuff.  It is a blend of 80% Belgian style ale blended with 20% Belgian style ale aged in wine barrels with orange peel.  What a well-crafted wonder.  Get you some!
