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.

UDBeernut (2187) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2012
On tap pours hazy gold with small white head. Bready nose with hints of dull earth. Taste is same with addition of flower and faint clove. Slightly less than medium body. A treat with fish tacos.

maneliquor (3474) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours straw yellow with a small, fluffy white head. Some nice lacing left behind. Nose is very citric with loads of lemon zest. Slightly perfumey and a touch of grass in there as well. Really liking the balance and how this has come together. Taste really focuses on the Sorachi Ace. Loads of lemon and zest. Sweet hoppiness all the way through while it never takes away from a typical belgian saison. Fantastic beer and has the perfect mouth feel to keep this flowing

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Tap at Milltown Carrboro, 16 oz. pour Ar: Lots of fresh lemon zest dominates, but some earthy undertones as well. Ap: Pours a hazy pale yellow-copper-orange-etc. (you know standard Saison color, I can’t ever describe it). T: Moderate sweetness but balanced by a nice tart touch on the finish. Really refreshing for a 7.6% abv beer. Finish lemony again. P: Slightly sticky, medium-thick, assertive carbonation. O: I’d been wanting to try this for a while. Thoroughly enjoyable.

robinvboyer (3568) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle at volo. Clear golden pour, big frothy head. Light funky, hoppy aroma. Some citrus, pine, fresh cut grass, and yeast. Carb was a little over the top. Finish was light on the bitterness and had a wonderful peppery finish like a good sasion should have. The sorachi hops added a welcome piney, citrus mix that was really nice. A great saison.

Good beer. Nice appearance with a light sweet malt aroma. Body is thin to medium. The taste is crisp with a spicy finish.

JStax (3822) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2012
Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle. Aroma is an earthy citrus pine medley with just a hint at some tartness in the background. Taste is more of the same. I wish the beer would have had a little more tartness to it, but I find myself thinking that a lot lately.

AdamChandler (3743) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2012
Picked this up at Lebanon Co-Op. They had about 20 in stock as of this review. Poured into a Mikasa Tulip.

A - 4-Finger crystal clear head that dissipated very fast with some alright head lacing on the edges. SRM of 3.1. Light golden color with no clouds or haze.

S - Big citrus lemon zest scent, champagne and bready. Wild almost Brett scent as well. Very funky.

T - Immediately the lemon peels and orange pulp is what I get first. The champagne yeast is not as pronounced as expected. More of the wild / funky yeast especiallly on the last pour that I intentionally included the drags on made the funk so much more pronounced. Yeah, the last pour was very funky.

M - Medium bodied and very dry even more after swallowing. Lingering bready and citrus tastes

O - Good beer. Not a home run but this is a tasty beer I would buy again.

Goodgrief (1885) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 26, 2012
Hazy golden color, frothy head. Aroma is peppery and grainy from the Sorachi. Light fruity base with the rice/grainy flavor of sorachi. Not overly funky or spicy, but sorachi is just delicious. I liked it.

jrodooo5 (1281) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 23, 2012
Smells like an awesome belgian. Pours a clear gold with a tiny head. Has a touch of hop bitterness but finishes clean. Possibly the best saison I’ve tried to date.

Scouser (303) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow colour with loads of white lacing, nice looking beer. Aroma wild yeast, a little citrus and spice. Taste of hay, citrus, and over ripe banana and wild yeast I like this one, nice beer.
