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.

Nonshaugen (343) - Fetsund, NORWAY - APR 18, 2016
355 ml, bottle conditioned. Yellow, hazy, very thin head, low carbonation, loads of powdery sediments floating around. Aroma is grassy, floral and spicy. Mouthfeel is bitter and carbonated, long bitter aftertaste. Flavours are spice, lime zest, grass and loads of SA hops. Interesting beer more than sessionable.

lokis333 (302) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - APR 11, 2016
Unfiltered couldy peech look with strong white foam. Aromas are very fruity and sweet hoppy, with hints of grass, orange and lemon, it definatly has that soft citrus hop aromas going on. medium/full body with bitting trough texture leaving bit hop, spice, bitter finish. Taste is on the sharp bitter side with mainly hops, and quite bitter hops, still has some orange and citrus notes to it. Overall, nice beer! Do quite like it and recomend it to try, just way more bitter than other saisons I had.

Maku kuin kaunista kusista saippuaa. Ei ihan suoraan selviä miten kääntyy, mutta selvästi jatkoon.

pootzboy (1687) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2016
750ml caged-cork bottle - decants a hazed pale straw color with a massive bone-white meringue cap. Citrusy aroma with gusty biscuit malts. Flavour starts with biscuit malts and a peppery edge but then the palate is floode with this lemon-dill discernment - goes to a spicy dry clean finish - bright sharp summery character - very refreshing - hides its higher alcohol content well for such a light spicy saison - top flight brew for savoring on a warm spring bistro patio with a grilled bay scallops

Crockett (1067) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2016
Pours straw yellow, hazy. Mild particulate. Beautiful little beaded carb. Short white sudsy head. Nose of lemon grass, funk. candy sugar, yeast. Raw sour dough. Lots of lemony citrus and clean wheat malts. Yeasty. Has a tiny bit of toast in the back of the throat. It’s very minimally gritty. Notes of stewed sour plums, fresh grass and leafy herb and spice. Is there a bit of cilantro/coriander in here? Pithy grapefruit sorbet. Great substitute for champagne on a tasting menu. A really unassuming beer. Very stylish modern Saison.
