Goose Island Recalls Sofie Batches for Taste Purposes

2011_6_3GooseIslandSofie.jpg Goose Island has announced a recall of three batches of their popular "Sofie"
Belgian Style Ale, based on a letter from brewmaster Brett Porter sent yesterday. Unlike most recalls, which are filled with fear, coverups and blame avoidance, this one is suprisingly honest - the batches being recalled simply fell "outside of our desired taste profile," according to Porter. The beer is completely safe to drink, but it's not quite what they want it to be.

If you need to check your collection, here are the details on the three batches of recalled beer. "The 2/11/2011 batch is 650ml bottles, the 3/8/2011 and 4/20/2011 batches are 4 packs." According to a spokesperson for Goose Island, anyone who has purchased Sofie with these batch numbers should return them to their original point of purchase for a refund.
