I'm cheating on my wife with SOFIE! Wow. Great beer. Everything I love in a beer even though it's more a Farmhouse Ale than a Wit/Hef/Belgium where my preferences are centered. I've had both the large format and 12 oz (4 pack). I'm biased towards the large format bottle but that's probably because of the outcome of finishing it vs a small 12 oz! ;-)
