I had a dark saison tonight at Clyborne quit tastey.. I saw Dave and he didn't mention anything about special beers  :shrug:
Black Saison?

I had that at Clybourn when I was there in June....I was impressed...it was different.

They had it listed as Noire when I was there but it was pretty black.. I was told its a beer from Fulton that they brought over and not one of Wills beers

The froth has barely settled since Goose Island tapped into six new beers only two weeks ago, but the local brewery is already months ahead of us. We caught up with Brewmaster Greg Hall last week to get the lowdown on what to expect in the upcoming seasons.
Pepe Nero
Looks like another cold, dark month, so the March release of the black saison style beer, Pepe Nero, will be a great compliment to eating steak while hibernating in the back of your favorite gastropub. Expect black, caramel malty flavors backed by the distinctive taste of black pepper. The draft-only pour will be available in select locations such as The Beer Bistro, Publican and Hopleaf.
Bourbon County Breakfast Stout
Did the other three variations of Bourbon County Stout do nothing for you? Do you have a questionable reliance on coffee? Are you curious about drinking beer first thing in the morning? All of these questions and more will be answered come April when Goose Island releases the Bourbon County Breakfast Stout. A limited edition 22 oz. bottle, this version of the stout will be chock full of coffee flavor from Intelligensia, who share their roasting space in the same building as the Goose Island brewery.
White City
Named after the first World's Fair, Hall describes this Imperial White Ale as being like the Snow Wit, but bigger. If it has any of the malty and citrus flavors of Snow Wit, the anticipated May deadline will be a fitting spring beer. Fleur Reunited and it feels so good. If you missed out on this seasonal ale last summer, this summer is your chance to hop to it. This yeasty beer hits the right notes for summer with floral notes and kombucha. Kombucha is good for you, right?

Good article talking about pairing beer with food vs. pairing wine with food.  They interview Greg Hall and various Goose Island beers are used as their example.

Saw this posted over on BA about infected Matilda bottles.

Advocates-
We have some Matilda bottles with potential sourness, which is out of our spec, and have issued a withdrawal from the market for the affected batches. No other Goose Island beers are affected, only the following bottles of Matilda.
4/1/10   12oz   
4/17/10   12oz   
4/22/10   12oz   
5/20/10 12oz   
4/16/10    650ml
5/21/10 650ml   

We brew Matilda with Brettanomyces (Brett) yeast, which is critical to the complex flavor development of the beer. Brett naturally adds acidity to Matilda, giving our beer a slightly sour finish. The affected batches, in addition to Brett, have active lactobacillus, which will add a level of sourness outside our standard. Lactobacillus, like Brett, is common in many Belgian Ales. Many Goose Island barrel aged beers ferment with both Brett and lactobacillus but most non-Belgian breweries consider them to be beer spoilers.

The Goose Island standards for Matilda do not include the sourness produced by lactobacillus. We have instituted additional quality measure to ensure that future batches of Matilda will not be affected.

We apologize for letting this get into the market before we caught it and we are working with our distributors to remove the beer from retailers. If you have Matilda with the listed date codes, you can return it to your retailer or contact us directly at info@gooseisland.com

We deeply appreciate the trust you put into Goose Island and we thank you for your support.

Sincerely,

Gregory Hall
Brewmaster
Goose Island Beer

The aged 650s seem to show more brett development for whatever reason. Had some 09 12oz's that were sweet and a little oxidized.
I get the 650s to drink/cellar now, even if they aren't as cost effective...

My favorite Goose Island beer eva!  :pickle:

I may look for a 4-pack of the lacto infected Matlida. Sounds like something worth trying.

I wish that beer showed more "infection".  It's been pretty malty the last few times I had it.
The aged 650s seem to show more brett development for whatever reason. Had some 09 12oz's that were sweet and a little oxidized.
I get the 650s to drink/cellar now, even if they aren't as cost effective...
FWIW, I've been drinking a ton of 2010 12oz Matilda lately (bottled 03-03-10) and the Brett is definitely starting to come through nicely.

Goddamnit

@gooseclybourn BCS Vanilla Update: Brewers tried it & thought it needed more time so beer is still in barrels. Will keep updated on release date! Cheers!
