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.

Pale yellow and hazy. Some yeasy and citrus in the aroma, especially lime. Quite thin in texture. Tastes a bit soapy. Very dry finish.

Maarten1993 (500) - - JUL 16, 2015
Drank with Thierry in Malden 15-7. Very clear beer with a sharp taste. Lots of carbonation. Taste like lemon or something, peculiar. Not bad but did not particularly enjoy it.

thmsboyd (112) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle BBE: Mar 2016. Chilled. Pours a bright, hazy golden, with a small, off-white head. High-medium intensity lemon, lemon sherbet, elderflower, Belgian yeast and grass aromas. Immediate high acidity, followed by a light bitterness and softening of flavour. Light-bodied with high carbonation and a fizzy texture, the citrus finish lingers long. The Sorachi Ace hop lends this beer some awesome aromas, but the rest of the beer is a major disappointment. Fizzy and insipid.

Maakun (1526) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle shared at home. Hazy straw with small white head. Orange, lychee, berries, vanilla and bourbon, almonds, pasteurized milk, flowery and quite some aromatic herbs. Light sweet with a hint of tartness and light herbal bitter finish. Medium bodied with slick feel. Interesting beer, not especially my thing but quite decent. Seems almost bourbon barrel aged.

Franzen (398) - SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2015
Very herbal hop aroma with some zest as well. Brief honey like sweetness that very soon replaced by a dry spicy bitterness. Light and dry which fits the style but maybe to light.

Marko (4301) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Pivoteka, shared with Hrabren & Jones. Flowery blast with notes of Sorachi in the aroma, backed with solid maltiness. Soft taste, flowery-citric notes up front Sorachi, not as bublegummy as sometimes, but still quite distinct, fruit jam, herbal notes, rosemary.... wow. This is, by all means, a great beer!
