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.

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2013
FROM NOTES: July 23, ’12 Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau glass. A: Initially of spicy yeast, peppercorns, and clove with hints of straw malt and lemongrass. Hops are really light and alcohol is not detected. A: Pours a hazy dark golden yellow to golden orange in color with a three finger tall off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film over the entire surface of the beer. Significant amounts of lacing are observed. T: Light to moderate amounts of lemon citrus sourness along with some earthy/hay hop bitterness. There is an underlying sweetness with some spicy yeast flavors. P: Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. O: This beer is all about balance (not intensity) . A delicate beer from Garrett Oliver and Brooklyn Brewery. My first time around with Sorachi Ace hops and I like them!

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a foamy white head that doesn't last long but leaves decent lacing. Aroma of sweet pineapple and some lemon and a bit of graininess. Taste of lemon and some citrus with a bit of phenols and a slightly astringent graininess with some sweetness. Mouthfeel is crisp with a medium body and high carbonation. Finishes semi. Bigger body than most saisons a and a little more sweetness that takes away from its drinkability but still a good saison.

2013 bomber to a tulip glass. Pours a hazy pale lemon yellow with a big fizzy white head. Aroma is a little lemon but get more of a tangerine. Some funk in the smell and reminds me a little if lemon Pledge. Taste is lemon with some sweetness, a very light malt quality with a bit of graininess. A cheesy taste at the very end. Thin medium mouthfeel with some astringency. Not as dry as most saisons. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fine beer that was hoppy for a saison but still rather unassuming. Pretty good but not amazing. Fairly smooth finish.

Beer5000 (5770) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2013
Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. Slightly unclear yellow golden body with a moderate sized white head. Mild but nice aroma of spices and some citric fruit. Flavor is nice, refreshing, fruity and spicy yeat. Medium body with a fine refreshing aftertaste in the same league as the main flavor. A very pleasant Saison with this typical and not so easy to describe Saison aroma and flavors.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Tap: Golden-straw, translucent with a mild chill haze that eventually fades. Big-bubbled, white head stays thin but lasts for a while with small bits of wet lacing left behind. Aroma is packed with lemon of different hats; lemon peel, lemon zest, lemongrass... Effervescent & light, yet smooth & crisp. Herbaceous, grassy, earthy, with a touch of bubblegummy yeast esters. Little bit of clove, coriander, & white pepper in the finish. Taste is more of the same, with lemon zest, herbal lemon tea, earthy & grassy hops, mild bitterness, clove, mild pepper spice, & a good blanket of Belgian yeast esters. Malt balances, but isn’t too sweet; cracker-like & bready. Crispy, dry finish. Very drinkable, nice stuff here.

Sample from bottle at the Cardinal stand at Nærbø, Ølfestivalen 2013. Clear bright golden body with a white rim. Inviting peppery, light Bret and spice notes fill the nostrils. Watery heavily carbonated mouth and a light to medium body. Spicy light gooseberries and cardamum stand out.
