I've had this on tap a few times and never got around to reviewing it. This is Goose Islands attempt at a Chimay clone. Some candi sugar's here for sure and the yeast profile is evident in the flavor . A good beer to drink if you are a fan of Chimay grand Reserve. This one has similar flavors. Light lacing that is to be expected from a Belgian style beer. Good flavor without being over the top on clove and coriander flavor as some Belgians seldom are. A well made worthy drinking beer.

Picked up a 12 ounce bottle from the local bottle shop (took a try on a 2013... thought it could handle the age well)... not expecting be knocked out but wanting to give another Goose Island a try. Poured into my tulip glass. Nothing tremendous on appearance... unfiltered (that's ok), 1/2 finger of head was gone quickly, interesting mahogany hue. The aroma was awesome... raisins and dark fruit, apples or pears, molasses, and of course, Belgium. Aside from the presence of alcohol in the taste, all of the aromas were strong in the flavor profile. Not a ton of the 'funk', and overall a great flavor balance. Velvety mouthfeel... one of the most enjoyable I have tried for mouthfeel. Overall, this was excellent... great balance to this beer, and a pleasant surprise. As a big IPA and stout guy, before long I might be drawn to more of the Belgian styles... pick one up.
