Sofie is an interesting, sexy woman. Bubbly, spicy and tangy with an underlying dry sense of humor, I’m not sure what to make of her. Her long, flowing blonde locks beguile me, and her banana-lemon-pinot grigio perfume jumps from her skin and draws me in for a kiss. I taste orange, white pepper, grape, and even a hint of her astringent, leathery musk.
Is she a sleek, refined Belgian Blonde, a farmhouse barnyard bombshell, or……both? I care not.
Here are some details, by the way:
Bottled on 1/29/11
80% Belgian style ale blended with 20% Belgian style ale aged in wine barrels with orange peel
Fermented at least in part with wild yeast
Wish I knew the wine barrels used, but I don’t. Sorry. Definite white wine character though.
This is a beer I would drink a lot of if it was available locally.
