Just tapped: Gillian Farmhouse Ale – Goose Island Beer Co. 9.5% ABVgillian_765ml_hi_res2

Brewer’s Notes:

Ale with Strawberries, Honey, and White Pepper Aged in Wine Barrels

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 of “mouth amusement”. The ingredients are added at different stages to a Saison, and fermented with a normal Belgian yeast as well as a Champagne yeast.
