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.

A very good summer brew by Brooklyn. Pours cloudy golden with little head if poured in a tilted glass. citrus zest is in there, definitely a little hoppy. Delicious

FROTHINGSLOSH (5215) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Sampled from a 750ml brown corked bottle this beer poured a very cloudy medium yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish citrus, cactus, pine and pepper. The flavor was sweet, tangy and bready with notes of citrus, cactus, agave, lemon and pepper. The finish was long with sweet cactus, lemon and pepper lingering. Fairly full bodied. Very nice.

RumRunner101 (855) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2012
Pours light orange with a thick white head. Aromas of lemon, tropical fruits, a touch of yeast. Wonderfully balanced body with a nice hop presence, flavours of pineapple, citrus and the belgian yeast comes out on the finish.

Pours golden with a large head. Has a lot of floral notes to it. Hints of sweetness up front, but some hoppiness on the back end. Interesting brew...

EdKing (2071) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2012 Keg in Draft House Norhcote. Supposed to be a saison but like a lager with sorachi hops. Clear pale amber thin white head. Nose is earthy, citrous, floral. Taste is crisp like a lager with some tangy, earthy sorachi hops. Easy to drink simple single hop beer, but I’m not getting saison at all.

JorisPPattyn (8228) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2012
Good off-white head, hazy orange-yellow beer. Cheesy notes from the S.A., Champagne and fusel-like (not FROM fusels) aromas. Sorachi Ace giving herbal, grassy, but also fiery and cheesy notes, but lacking the depth from melanoidins. Spritzy, Champenoise pearling, medium bodied and slick. Garrett, sorry, you might think different, but I rest my case with this beer. Sorachi Ace is for DARK STRONG beers. Not for a blonde single hop special, however well-treated.

Marheb (2817) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 7, 2012
En fût au Cloverleaf: On comprend assez vite pourquoi Garrett Oliver decida de la brasser à l’année. Puissantes notes de citron savonneux, vegetale, florale combiné aux esters de levure vraiment impressionnante. La buvabilité est sublime, très frais.

This poured a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was lots of fruity notes, some spices, lots of melons and some grass too. Flavor was melon, light wild notes, and coriander. INteresting beer.
