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.

Poured from a large bottle into a snifter glass to sample. The beer had a pretty cloudy straw-gold color with a very large creamy-foamy white head with very good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured grapefruit, citrus, and straw notes with some grain and lemon. It had sweet and bitter taste, with lemon zest, citrus, and a light grain and straw undertone. The body was fairly well carbonated with a dry, thinner mouthfeel.

Pours a hazy pale gold, with 1 finger of foam. Very grassy and herbal aroma, slight funkiness from the yeast. Medium bodied with a grassy taste and a hint of lemon. Excellent

On tap in a tall tulip. Fine white head. Clings to the glass all the way. Straw yellow with a slight haze. Big tart lemon rind in the nose. Great dry first bite across the palate. Not sure if its the Sorachi, bit there’s a fun funk through the middle. Crisp finish. Great beer!

W aromacie cytrusy, trawa cytrynowa. Barwa złota, mętny, kiepska piana. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Cytrus, trawa cytrynowa. Mocno nasycony, aż szczypie w ustach. Bardzo ciekawy saison.

Hazy pale yellow brew. Light and quite fizzy, refreshing, yeasty and with a dry finish. The hops are a bit thin, as are the spices. It is what it is, a pretty good hot summer day brew.

From growler into a tulip glass pours cloudy orange with a little head. Earthy smell of hay. Earthy taste a little lemon after taste finely carbonated like a sparkling wine. Not a bad says on especially considering it was 9.99 for a growler

GSH1976 (221) - Delaware, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours a cloudy light gold with minimal head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is difficult to describe since there are some notes I don’t usually smell. I can detect some lemongrass, funk, a little spice and earthiness. Taste is lemon, yeast. The finish is bitter, dry and crisp. Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Interesting.

I can see why Anastasia, of the Beerists says this goes well with any food. Good nose. Hoppy bitterness is well balanced and doesn't build or linger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
