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.

Defreni (2645) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2011
Flaske: Lysegul uklar øl med et kæmpestort kridhvidt skumhoved. Anden øl var en gusher hvor proppen sprang af med et smæld. Kæmpe sorachi duft med tropisk frugt, men for første gang for mig også en god gang dild, bestemt ikke ubehagelig. Smagen er dejlig igen med sorachi dominerende, men lidt for meget dild i smagen til at komme helt op og ringe. Men lækker lækker øl.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Sample at Gallo’s tap room. The beer is a murky orange color with a medium off-white head. Citrus, pear and yeast in the nose. Light body with flavors of zesty oranges, herbs and yeast. Some breadiness too. The finish is fruity and I caught a distinct bourbon note on the exhale in the aftertaste. Above average overall.

Thanks to Brother John from Ember Gastropub I got to enjoy a bottle. I’m not a huge fan of this style but, this one is fantastic. Bready aromas and yeast on the pour with an effervescent quality. Lemony, grassy, sweet, some funk, and a herbal element. Not sure about the "new" hop’s role in this refreshing brew. Brooklyn has enticed me to buy this beer again.

TheJestersBeer (2123) - SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2011
750ml bottle Pours a golden straw, quite hazy, white head. Very spicy, herbal aromas. Citrus peel, coriander leaves, mosquito repellant (in a positive way!), yeast, wheat, malt, apples, and a nice, almost funky undertone. Dry, light to medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. Spicy, herbal taste, citrus, yeast, wheat, grass, coriander leaves, white pepper, slightly funky/farmyardy. I really like the mix between traditional Saison style,and a modern hop variety.

Highly carbonated golden yellow-orange, huge puffy snow white foam. Aroma is lemony Sorachi hops, minty herbal, fruity esters. Taste is more subdued but with a lingering hop presence of grassy herbalness. The body is sweet bready malts, a bit of lemon zest overtone.
