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.

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 (1066) - 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.

b3shine (7656) - Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a milky/yeasty golden apricot with foamy white head. Smells of cutrus and tropical fruit hops alongside mild notes of saison yeast. Tastes like it smells, but yeastier, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid, but another turbid brew that’s very yeasty on the tongue.

TATE (400) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle. I think this one is a bit old. Big citrusy aroma with comes through in the flavor though this is quickly taken over by a soapy flavor and very sweet and cloying. It ends with a boozy flavor that I find unpleasant. This one’s not for me.

Amarela, turva. Espuma rala de média duração. Aroma cítrico de limão e laranja. Sabor amargo equilibrado, cítrico, com notas de limão, laranja, coentro e coco. Retrogosto amargo que emora a aparecer e final levemente ácido.

Marstonlad (687) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle from Alko Sello, Espoo. Pours cloudy golden with a huge frothy head. The aroma features strong floral and citrusy notes, apple, berries - black currant - with grainy pale maltiness and yeastiness in the background - much variety. Taste is dryish, light sour and bitter; pale malts provide basis for yeast and hops to add levels on. Fresh fruitiness, berries, hay and barnyard - very Belgian outlook, only very subtle American influence. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Quality saison, very refreshing.

Notas de citrinos na cerveja, bastante maltada, clara e com pouca espuma. Uma cerveja boa mas não é das que mais gosto.
