Goose Island Lolita Ships

Goose Island’s latest release, their Belgian Style Pale Ale, Lolita, ships today.  Lolita is fermented with wild yeast and aged in wine barrels with raspberries giving it a pink color.

You might think this is a Russian style girly beer (a little Nabokov for you), but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces (the little guys who give us that tart zing) and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish.
