Drink of the Week: Goose Island’s Madame Rose

With summer officially starting tomorrow, we couldn’t be more ready to crack open today’s Drink of the Week—the Madame Rose from Chicago’s Goose Island brewery. Brewed with native yeasts and tart Michigan cherries, it rested in Cabernet wine barrels for almost two years before being bottled earlier this spring. It’s unapologetically sharp and tangy, with fresh cherry-pie flavors met with a hint of vanilla and barrel spice. It’s solidly reminiscent of the classic Duchesse de Bourgogne, and a sour beer any fan of the style is sure to love.
