Goose Island Beer Co. Sofie (6.5%)

You know something?
This isn’t bad.
In fact it’s quite drinkable.
Pouring a pale gold, the aroma is damp woodland and spicy orchard fruit, and taking a swig you find that an earthy fungal yeast hit is sitting front and centre in the beer.
Everything else washes around it, like the spun sugar and honey of the malts with their crunchy biscuits, and the steely dry bitterness of the herbal hops edged with lemon zest.
But it’s that delicious tasty bite that’s the star here, never hitting sour but walking dangerously close to the edge of it.
If you know someone who hasn’t moved into sour or farmhouse beer styles, this would make a very good place to start.
