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.

radio_nowhere (1112) - Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Draft at Old Town Pour House in Gaithersburg, MD served in a half-pint glass. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma notes of bready malt, non-descript herb/spice notes (pepper, coriander maybe), grain and some light barnyard funk. Taste adds more peppery notes and light fruity hop bitterness (leans lemony). Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry with light citrus finish. Found this to be a quite nice saison, interesting yet refreshing.

DeanF (1808) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
Served in a curved wineglass, this one had minimal head but a very nice foggy orange body. Aroma of coriander especially. Flavour is tart malts and still plenty of coriander. I liked it so much I had a second one.
