COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a classic saison, a cracklingly dry, hoppy unfiltered golden farmhouse ale, but featuring rare Sorachi Ace hop.Fermented with our special Belgian ale strain, we add Sorachi Ace hops post-fermentation. After 100% bottle re-fermentation with Champagne yeast, the beer emerges with a bright spicy lemon zest aroma. It tastes like sunshine in a glass, and that suits us just fine, especially with seafood dishes and fresh cheeses.

DerWeg (1534) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
The most radiant goldy pale blonde is topped with a lacy and rocky white head. Nice aromatics like lemon and fruit and yeast. Taste is zippy with citrus fruit and spice, plus an earthy herbal dryness that really goes well. Super nice served very cold.

maledictum (669) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 17, 2015
Pours golden, white head. Aroma of grassy hoppy with strong hints of lemongrass. The nose is fresh, citrusy and overly pleasant. Flavor, reminded me a lot of fresh green tea with a good dose of lemongrass, citrus, pine, some spices. Refreshing palate with an overall profile that’s not too bitter.

AgentAle (889) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Aroma is fresh malts, honey, straw, lemon grass andfesh herbs. Taste is sweet malts, honey, rose pedals, wine grapes, apricot and wild yeast. Appearance is a mildly hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

stevoj (2486) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2015
An explosion of aromas and flavors. Vibrant neon golden color, some lazy carbonation, wispy head. Spicy, floral nose, coriander. Taste is more of the same, adding some grass and mild hop bitterness. Lingering mild bitter dryness, and lots of spicy tang. Sensory overload.

shaynsawchuk (597) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2015
750 mL bottle. Lightly hazed, pale straw with a huge, lasting, lacy head of white foam. White pepper, cured lemon, candy floss and a bit of dill on the nose. Chewing gum and grassy hops. Candy tones upfront provide a mild sweetness, followed by midpalate yeasty spice and finishing with a gentle hop bitterness. Light to moderate body, full carbonation and a fizzy, creamy texture. Quenching and crushable.

There was a lot of smoke when I popped the cork off. The beer is a hazy golden color with a thick soapy white head that dissipates pretty quick but left some lacing around the glass. The aroma is citrusy, lemon peel, wet hay, and wheat. The taste is citrusy up front and some lemon peel is noticed as well but I also pick up some hops in there as well. There is some bitterness in there but it is pretty mellow. I can pick up some yeast in the flavor as well and there is some minimal spices I can pick up as well. The aftertaste is bready and pepper.

Bottle - Cloudy yellow with medium chunky head. Lots of carbonation. Has a sweet aroma and spicy lemon peel taste. Dry but not all that bitter. Pretty good.

berkshirejohn (4813) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegmans, Buffalo, NY. A hazy orange pour with a ring of white head; citrusy aroma with some yeast; sharp herbal bitter taste with a sweet grainy body; and some sweet lemony citrus to finish. Rather unbalanced and not something I’d come back to.

12 oz. and 750 mL bottles from The Hop Yard, Raleigh, NC. Both pour dark orange with a white head but the 750 pours a much frothier head. Barnyard is more present in the aroma of the 750 with the 12 oz. bottle offering more lemon zest. Taste is similar in both versions with white peppercorns, citrus, hay, and Earth noted. Finish is clean. Overall a great saison. The 750 is more pronounced in both aroma and flavor and would be the preferred vessel to purchase this beer. My overall score is based on the 750 version.
