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.

On draft. Color of straw and golden yellow. Aroma of yeast and nice hops. Taste is very good and lots of hops. Prickly carbonation, "saison" but a good one. Not usually a saison drinker but this is a good one.

jgb9348 (4891) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Rich crisp copper coloured body with a soapy and large just off-white head, about four centimetres tall. Aroma of yeast, grass, hay and a ton of hops - very noticeable and pungent - these must be Sorachi Ace. Medium-bodied; Dense malty mouthful at first with a strong yeast and hay kick near the end, all with some moderate complexity. Aftertaste shows a rich yeast note of champagne, grapes and a bit of hay - not too complex and not too hoppy, but showing some nice flavours. Overall, a decent saison with a noticeable hoppiness from the Sorachi Ave hops. Nothing exceptional, but a good beer for sure. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 16-July-2014 for US$7,89 sampled after a hockey game here in Washington.

dhatton (72) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours a pale golden body with tight phosphorescent pillow of foam. Strong retention and lacing all the way down the glass. Massive floral and citrus aromas with some freshly baked bread notes. Spicy grapefruit and pineapple tastes with a hint of coconut and ginger. Refreshing dry, semi-bitter, finish makes this extremely quaffable. Excellent cap to a relatively furtive trip around the sun.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thick head that dissipates quickly leaving moderate lacing. Citrus nose. Strong citrus notes up front with a yeasty middle, leaves very little aftertaste but a pleasant feeling. Very good.
