I guess I had to get the initial bite out of the way. After that, I liked the aftertaste.
That said, I preferred their Pere Jacques, though I think that is because I prefer Dubbel over Saison.
I really love Sofie. I must have bought 10+ bottles of the 2009 between trips to the liquor store or at Blanc Burgers + Bottles because it perfectly compliments their Au Poivre Burger. I'm stoked that it is in 4-packs of 12oz. bottles now.
