The Chicago Brewery Goose Island is a world-master at barrel ageing beer, they were one of the first of the modern breweries to do so. Take Madame Rose. This is a Belgian ale brewed in the Flanders Oud Bruin style. It has been aged in barrels and then bathes in a ton of cherries. The cherries are apparent on the nose but take a sip, and the surprisingly lively liquid has a vinegary bite and a depth of flavour that bounces around the mouth like popping candy. An exceptional beer indeed.

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.

Yes, sour vinigary taste, not horribly so, (though I may have liked it to be), cherry is in there, long use by date, worth putting one aside for a year or two for mellowing?

I like sours. I love Goose brews. I don’t love this. It smells like gone off self tan lotion. It’s tastes of the same, mixed with acetone and malt vinegar. I couldn’t drink it. I wanted to like it, but I really didn’t. Not my thing at all.
There's a first time for everything

Tried my first SOUR beer (Goose Island Madame Rose) from the Beer Hawk Advent Calendar and loved it. It has a bitterness like vinegar which I adore. So impressed that I've ordered 16 more bottles. Would recommend it, but only if you enjoy a vinegar type flavour. Lip smackingly good ?!?!
