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.

Bottle from Brass CIty Brew Fest. Pours a golden body with a white head that provides nice lacing. What makes this saison stand out from others is its sorachi spiciness. The spiciness provides a kick that pairs nicely with its smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

a light aroma with grain and some light spice and apple. the flavor disappoints a bit. Not what you expect from a saison. mild and creamy with light spice and an odd bitterness. the finish is light with a bit of spice. It has all the makings of something good it just doesn’t do exactly what a saison should.

750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy golden with a two finger bone white head that is slowly receding. Aroma is moderately funky, lemony, very yeasty. The taste is most notably creamy, floral and again yeasty and lemon, the funkiness is less in the taste, but is there. Alcohol is very well hidden, but does leave a mild warming feeling letting you know this technically isn’t a session beer, although I could drink it all night. I would love to try it with some cheeses, swiss or other.

Ferris (7020) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2012
Draft - Bright white fruits on the nose and a yeasty sweetness. Cloudy orange/yellow with a thin head. Tastes of citrus, peach and grass. The high carbonation actually goes well with this style and would be my beer answer to the Mamosa. Very dry but refreshing and nice.

Lilja (2033) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2012
Väldigt uppfriskande och god. Fruktig med tydlig belgisk karaktär. Frisk och fruktig smak, smak av belgisk jäst. Välbalanserad.

Takeover tap night for lovin cup anniversary. Funky nose with ripe bananas and yeastiness. Much the same in taste with full body and spiciness. Very nice.

deekyn (1334) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
A - pours unfiltered medium grade grade darker amber apple juice. Has a high fluffy big bubbled head. S - interesting hard to place tropical fruit aromas up front ( the serachi hops?) Belgian yeasts, oaky notes, citrus peel, cloves, lemon. M - medium bodied lighter palate. Fairly simple but good. Light alcohol warmed end with mild bitterness. T - nag champa up front. Strange but good. Belgian yeasts, grassy and hay notes. Fresh orange and lemon peel and cloves. Simple vegetal end. O - pretty good different but flatter and simple. 6+

Bottleshare BBQ at Dave L’s, PA - 27/05/12. Cloudy golden yellow with lots of carbonation visible. Yeast, citrus, lemon peel nose. Taste follows nose, sweet malt, largely lemon, touch of hops and spice. Medium bodied and a good rasp of carbonation but not as much as the visuals made out! Dryish clean finish.

Fra flaske på København ølfestival mai-10, sjenket av Brooklyn Brewerys karismatiske sjefsbrygger Garrett Oliver: en meget spesiell opplevelse, sorachi-humlen minnet om kattepiss. Jeg må nok gi den en ny sjanse da mange andre syntes den var både spennende og velsmakende.

mansquito (3980) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2012
The Narrows, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours a light orange color with a white head. Aroma is sorachi ace hops, lemon, and some saison yeast. To be honest, it would have been hard for me to pinpoint this beer as a saison. I think Sorachi Ace beers are almost their own style. In any case, this has a lot of spice, a lot of lemon, a fair amount of peculiar hops, and a nice body. I felt no qualms about getting a second glass.
