Goose Island Pere Jacques 2010

type: Belgian-style abbey ale
origin: Chicago, IL, USA
price: $8/22 oz

I didn't know Chi-town could be so classy. This from a city that produced Blago?! The bottle's elegance mirrors the clean, distinct flavors of the beer, an abbey style ale. At 8%, this is much less of an alcohol/syrup tasting beverage (I'm growing tired of this) than it is a delightful, potent beer.

The bottle reads "inspired", and I think that's obvious. It also reads "ages in the bottle" for up to five years; I'm not so sure it needs to. It would be interesting to see what happens after that long, but I'd probably fuck up the storage process somehow, and it would end up tasting like Bigfoot's dick.

It's only my first Goose beer, but I'm impressed already.
