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.

Draft. Color is a hazy bright yellow, nearly the color of Lemon-Lime Gatorade. Mild retention. Nose is lots of citrus and a grassy hop. Real lively mouthfeel. Lots of tingle and action on the tongue. It is spot on the brewers description. Not much funk at all here. A wisp of it in the dry finish. Honestly, it doesn’t remind me of a saison at all. More like a golden ale with a high end hop. Where is the farmhouse here?? Not bad but a real let down. Glad I got a short sample of this.

I liked this one a lot. It pours a bright straw yellow with a medium white head. Smell is citrus and earthy savoury aromas. Taste is bright, citrus, floral notes and grain. Finishes with a mild spice and savoury character.

750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours a thick white, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy gold (SRM 6) body....nose is light lemon citrus, pepper, with light cereal....taste is light cereal, leading into pepper, dry throughout, but with citrus, floral hints, light lingering bitterness finishes.....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation high. This is a quite representative of the style. Appearance, aromas and flavors are all spot on and the result is an immensely quaffable, thoroughly enjoyable, complex summer beer. Which is exactly what a Saison should be. BJCP 7/3/15/4/8

TEJA (1412) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Big white lasting white head. Clowdy light golden color. Citrus aroma and some mono sodium glutamat as from chinese food aroma, also some dry typical Saison like aromas. Citrus taste with a light naltyness and small sweetness. Will go fine with seafood but litle too much alcohole for a good thirst quencher. Wery livly sparkling and medium body.

Aroma of dough, banana, pepper, gum and light citrus. Appearance is cloudy gold with white head. Flavor matches the nose with a slightly wet citrus finish. Palate is very bubbly and chewy. Tasty Saison.

Golden in color hazy with a thin bubbly head. Interesting champagne yeast dry flavor and aroma. Crisp light fruit flavors and aromas linger. This was the toast brew for the starting of the conference.

teorn88 (3397) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Pint at Euston, London. Pours a yellow canary colour with a small white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy and mostly grainy and cereals, like rice. Taste is grassy and grainy with a sweet-acidic ricey note. Strange but pleasant. Body is thin with good carbonation. Overall, nice and interesting, but lacking the spicy yeasty true saison character to me.
