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.

ClarkVV (4855) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Draught at Lulus, 1/15/16.
Lightly hazy goldenrod/waxen yellow beer with a modest white head that sits at cover.
Honey, white bread, lemon and sweet white pepper notes all give way to a melon-like note that seems to dominate. A touch of vanilla, a bit of Belgian character (very light esters and phenols) and a touch more peach fruitiness. Fruity, but very insipid and with nothing compelling whatsoever, despite nothing terribly bad going on here. No alcohol noted.
Flavor is again full of melon, light citrus, fresh cut grass and flowers. There’s a very simple, somewhat boring sweetness and absolutely no variation to the maltiness. Vaguely catty at times, with a touch of mustiness. Light, somewhat hard carbonation and a watery, bready-malty texture. Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is not a classic saison. I don’t know what the hell it is trying to be, but it’s definitely not that. Maybe this is a good deal better in the bottle? I don’t know, no aspects seem particularly well-done here.

Boxereddy (362) - BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2016
Licht wazig citroengeel bier met een ruime schuimkraag. Duidelijk citrus in de neus, bloemig en hoppig. Mondgevoel is ruim met flink koolzuur. De smaak is hoppig met citroen. De afdronk is droog, bitterig en kruidachtig.

Diabobale (370) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 7, 2016
Dal colore giallo limone, leggermente velato, con un cappello di schiuma bianca, abbondante e croccante e anche di buona persistenza, questa saison si contraddistingue per il forte carattere agrumato. Al naso buoni i sentori floreali e speziati, con marcato sentore citrico (cedro, mandarino, arancia) e con note di agrume candito, il tutto su una bella base di cereale. Al palato è ben carbonata con un corpo non troppo esile. In bocca invece è il limone tra i legumi a farla di padrone, con un buon accenno anche di arancia amara. Il finale è secco e con un buon amaro erbaceo, con lieve asprezza di natura citrica. Bocca pulita e ottima beva.

QcBeer (45) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2016
Apparence tendu or/pale non filtré sous un légère mousse vivante jusqu’à la dernière goute! son odeur de levure belge domine à l’évidence et qui se marie bien avec le citron et les épices. En bouche, le citron les agrumes et les épices font un trio d’enfer. Une finale herbacé et assez sèche nous font découvrir une excellente Sorachi
