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.

Nice light orange color with a big fluffy head on top. Hoppy, hay, slightly orange nose with a trace of coriander. Crisp, refreshing nice taste. Highly carbonated, a bit grenadine in the taste. Fast going .

Pours golden with a huge white head that stays long. Nose is hoppy. Taste is mildly bitter and very pleasant. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Excellent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A wonderful saison beer. I’ve had Sorachi Ace hops in various beers and they always add something interesting. Never have they been better used then in this beer.

Beer to Piraat tulip, pour is a hazy light golden color with a massive white head. Aroma is very citrusy, a bit of barnyard, hay, orange peel. Not very complex but it’s quite strong. Taste carries the aroma notes but adds bread/hay elements. Quite grainy, thought there would be more hop notes, do notice a bit of pickle which is odd but characteristic of the hop. Palate suggests this is just OK, probably should’ve been colder. Co2 looked heavy but wasn’t. Mouthfeel wasn’t as thin or dry as I was expecting but the beer tasted and feels watery. Balanced well and the alcohol is very well concealed. Overall this is OK...the aroma was pretty wowing but this beer left more to be desired.

mgajdaczewa (603) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 5, 2014
W aromacie owocowo, głównie winogrono, kokosowe mleczko, lekkie przyprawy, bardzo elegancki. W smaku wytrawne, musujące, przyprawowa goryczka, posmak białych winogron. Dostojny trunek, choć smakowo niczego nikomu nie urwie.

Slightly cloudy yellow with a huge white head that lingers and clings to the glass. Nose has yeast, hone, lemon zest and other citrus notes, some light toffee and vanilla as well as some coriander and light pepper. Well balanced light sweet front and a medium light tart middle and end with a complex spice throughout. Mouth is medium light with prickly carbonation and finishes dry and crisp. Interesting.

rotaman14 (166) - Potsdam, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 75cl bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow, with a huge white head. Interesting aromas of weeds, bubblegum (which I understand comes from the Sorachi Ace hop), banana, lemongrass. Taste: medium sweetness, lightly sour, hints of spices and citrus fruits. It’s got a thick mouthfeel and a short, bitter finish. Very nice. But is it worth 20 Euros? Probably not.
