Goose Island's Pere Jacques (2011)

Pere Jacques is a Belgian Dubble from Goose Island Beer Co. out of Chicago. It pours a beautiful coppery red and smells very fruity. The mouth feel is slightly syrupy but not overwhelming. This is to be expected as this beer clocks in at 8% and is supposed to develop more complex character over 5 years (it was bottled June of 2011). The smell and taste are immensely fruity and with hints of dark stone fruit. Over all this is an excellent beer that I would seek out again.

The Concept

Brew Day is a brewers collective with a different obsession every month. Each month the homebrewers involved will tackle a different style of beer by brewing a batch and getting their malt-stained hands on as many pints of the same style as possible. Each brewer will bring their own warped concept to their batch helping to create as many variations as there are brewers involved.
