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.

haukur (1270) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 8, 2014
Holy cheeseness! Blue cheese, grass and small hint of grapefruit in the aroma. Estery, peppery, dry. All things you would want in a big saison like this. Feels a bit like dupont on steroids. A bit over the top but very good nonetheless.

cards04 (1639) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Pours a gorgeous honey color with champagne head. Magnificent. Very dry and champagne like. Aromas of Belgian candy and pink grapefruit. Flavors are bitter grapefruit and seamless hop bitterness with enough Belgian candy to keep it honest. This is really good.

Garrold (1138) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy, straw colour. Thin, sticky, white head. Yeasty, bready fustiness. Lemon rind. A bit cheesy. Taste is dry and spicy, with a little, chewy sweetness. Fairly full, sticky palate. Long, dry finish, with a little tartness. All over the shop, really.

Wittales (623) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Appearance was clear yellow gold with creamy white lasting 2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are lemon, slight wheat ,pils malt with hints of estery yeasts. Taste are soft sweet malt backbone with lemon, lime hop then doughy bready fruity yeast. Palate was smooth fizzy CO2 with light-medium body, then a balanced beautiful mix of citrus and malt finish. A wonderful saison, try it.

fishonmyplane (415) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Very dry with lots of spice, plus some grassy and citrus hops. Some alcohol burn as well. It’s a little too strong for it’s own good, I prefer mellower saisons.

TXBadger (1256) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Pours a hazy straw yellow with white head. Fizzy, citrusy, lemon mainly, with some funk and wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a raw wheat note.

shorlin (636) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Aroma is an interesting lemon, with an earthiness to it. Then it calms down into a funkiness. Appearance is spot-on: hazy pale yellow with a solid white head initially like meringue. The head faded but it still looks good. Taste is pretty good. Not really funk-forward in taste, more tart. Palate is ok, not really dry or bright as it could be. Overall, a good beer but not a super saison.

On tap at nico’s. Comes with thin white head and lemony yellow light to medium bodied. Smells of light lemon citrus and light coarse grain. Flavor profile with light medicinal, lemon zest, buttery hops and a bitter finish.
