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.

Pours cloudy light amber to golden, the white head sticks around and leaves beautiful lacing behind. The nose is very rich and bright; it has notes of lemon zest, mango, candy, pepper, and herbs. On the palate, it opens with bright bubblegum flavors, followed by greenish notes and juicy grapefruit bitterness which sticks around with the dry and tannic finish, while the alcohol is more muted than one could expect from 7.6% ABV. The carbonation is lively and goes well with the overall dryness. An excellent creation.

tmoreau (2134) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Gift 750 ml. bottle shared with craft friends, and poured to snifters with a hazed, orangey gold color, white, froth & bubbles head foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The aroma evoked a reminiscent barbershop scent that included dryness, spice, herbs, citrusy zest, & lemongrass, and maybe a little grapefruit. Light to medium bodied, with very effervescent, spritzy carbonation, light tartness, fruit & citrus, and a very palateably crisp & dry finish. I really enjoyed this one!

puboflyons (1892) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 23, 2013
From the corked, caged bottle no. 0042. It pours like golden champagne with a fizzy white head and continuous bubbly carbonation. The aroma has a sparkling grape or lemon zest kind of nose with pale roasted malts and a clean hop bite. The body is light to medium. The taste is about the same as the nose with citrus goodness, active carbonation that makes me burp (sorry), and a clean, crisp hop finish. Tart yet dry.

rangerred (866) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Poured into a tulip out of a 22oz bottle. Pours a hazy light straw yellow with a very fluffy, billowy white head. Globs of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass along with amazing head retention. The aroma is typical of a saison but is very rich. Lots of bread and yeast notes along with a tremendous punch of citrus. A little mustyness along with some lemon and a touch of citrus. Very nice and quite deep. The flavor is a bit on the light side but is quite nice. Spicy yeast esters along with orange peel and a touch of lemon. Some bread and hay along with grass. Some vanila finishes things up along with a drying finish and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is quite dry with just a little bit of stickyness to end things up. Overall, a very nice Saison with a twist. The sorachi ace hop lends some very nice citrus notes that compliment the Belgina yeast nicely. A good beer that is worth picking up.

750ml bottle 12/14/13 (Jewel Clearance Rack)-42° in Tulip-Pours a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, citrus, and hops. Taste of spices, yeast, citrus, grass, and bubblegum. This light bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Great brew.

TET (1442) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
A golden and lively beer, a head is big, lasting, slightly cloud and blond. The nose is aromatic, fruitfull, mandarin, citrusfruits, fructose and exoticness of Sorachi. Taste of fruits, lemon and lemon zest, spices and herbs. Now the Sorachi is clearly on the stage, first time when I find a dill. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonation, that fitts nicely into sophisticated habitus, the drinkability is fresh. Quite straightforward but still interesting beer, nevertheless, even the big bottle can hold the interest.

Bottle - quite a lovely-looking beer - hazy gold, very lively with a huge, thick, lasting frothy head - nose of pepper, lemon, pineapple, mango, honey, vanilla - medium sweet, but with a quenching acidity to it - complex tropical flavors, some vanilla, and even a hint of coconut - some honey, peppered mango, pineapple - medium dry, moderately bitter finish - interesting and tasty beer.
