Chicago brewer Goose Island, owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev, is launching two new beers as part of its 'Vintage Collection'.
Gillian, with an abv of 9.5%, is described as a "Belgian-style farmhouse ale... partially aged in wine barrels with 10,000 pounds of strawberries, 4,000 pounds of honey and white pepper".
Halia, with 7.5% abv, is in the same style, but has been brewed with fresh peaches.
Both beers are said to develop in the bottle for up to five years. They are being released in select US markets at the end of this month.
Goose Island was acquired by Anheuser-Busch InBev for US$38.8m in 2011.
