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.

Light and bubbly like a champagne. Great citrusy hops in a sweet, delicate saison. Very impressive ale. I’m not generally a fan of saison but this is very good.

BadAprilia1000 (239) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Nice foamy head that sticks around for a bit. Smells of hay, bread, oranges, citrus, apricots, limes, horse blanket. Mouth feel is nice and dry and very smooth. Refreshing. Taste is of sweet malted grain, weak citrus fruits, apricots, peaches, and honey. Very balanced and drinkable Saison. Very good beer.

Osprey87 (1393) - WALES - APR 19, 2014
Keg at Bottle Shop Bermondsy. Clear orange, slightly sparkling, no real head. Aroma - potent apple, wheat, lemon. Body is medium, carbonation is spritzy, smooth. Taste - wheaty, pine, urinal cake (in a sort of good way), touch of lemon. Very fruity, fresh beer. Stupendously drinkable. Good use of sorachi ace.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 9-25-2011 (Corked and caged bottle) The appearance is a medium sized fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, grassy, floral hops, sweet, fruity, and zesty. The taste is sweet, grassy, floral hops, malt, some spice, and zesty. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, a nice tasting saison and worth trying.
