According to labels filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Goose Island Beer Co. is working on releasing Sophie La Mure, a Belgian-style ale aged in wine barrels wth blackberry juice and packaged in 500ml bottles.

As the name of the ale suggests, the base beer is the Chicago-based brewery’s Sophie, a year-round 6.5 percent wine barrel-aged Belgian-style farmhouse ale conditioned on hand-zested orange peel.

This is not the first time that Goose Island has sold a version of Sophie incorporating fruit juice, after Sophie Paradisi (6.7 percent ABV) brewed with grapefruit was released as a draft-only option in 2013.

An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
