Details

Another of Goose Island’s special Sour Sister series, Gillian is an incredibly subtle saison. Golden in colour, there’s a slight taste of strawberries and a light peppery flavour. It’s got that tangy farmhouse funk you’d expect from a beer brewed with brettanomyces yeast (what you might hear shortened to ‘Brett beer’), and if you’re looking for a super special sour you can’t go wrong here.

Brewery Info

Great breweries start with a clear vision. Founder John Hall’s was to bring the best of European beer styles to Chicago. Since its modest beginnings in a brewpub in 1988, Goose Island went on to make some of America’s greatest beer, including Goose IPA that won medals not just once, but six times at the Great American Beer Festival.

Strawberry hits you instantly. Pours a hazy sunset orange. Like the nose the taste was tart strawberries up front, balanced by some nice honey notes and that typical sour tang. Very nice overall, a well executed Belgium style wild ale. If you want something refreshing this is for you.
