Goose Island’s “Gillian” Set To Return

Goose Island Gillian

By all best estimates, 2010 was the last time the world saw Goose Island Gillian. This farmhouse ale is brewed with strawberries, white pepper, and honey, then aged in wine barrels. You might know Gillian by another name – Scully. Inspired by amuse bouche, and created to be a “harmonious blend of mouth amusement.” We’re told we should see this mouth pleaser in late 2013.

Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale with White Pepper, Strawberry, and Honey. Inspired by an amuse bouche often prepared by the wife of one of our brewers, Scully brings white pepper, strawberry, and honey to a harmonious blend of “mouth amusement”. The ingredients are added at different stages to a Saison, and fermented with a normal Belgian yeast as well as a Champagne yeast. One of our favorite brews of the past year with many levels of complexity and character.

Style: Saison (w/ Strawberries, White Pepper, Honey. Wine Barrel Aged)

    The only reason I opened this was for Gillian Anderson, so thanks for making me not feel alone.
