BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Goose Island Beer Co.
Illinois, United States
gooseisland.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brewed with the Saison and farmhouse ales of Belgium in mind, we added fresh Georgia peaches and Brettanomyces claussenii to a fresh white wine barrel and aged the Saison base for 9 months. Stretching the boundaries of the traditional style, we decided to put our own little spin on it.

Formerly known as Mae.

the beer makes me think about having sex in a peach orchard. it is wonderful. each sip makes me go "whoa". it is a wonderfully balanced sour with bright peachy notes. it is exquisite. I hope they do it next year so I can put a vertical together.

Great fresh summer beer! A very nice fruity smell of sweet peaches, the taste is complex, yet so balanced; it is sweet, creamy, fruity and has a little sour in the end. Awesome beer for the warm summer nights!
