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.

Ktwse (2241) - SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2011
Pours a golden yellow with a fairly large white head. Quite hazy. Couldn’t quite get my head around the aroma, lots of wheat, yeast but also lemon and dried fruits. Medium, nice carbonation. Wheat, yeast and lemon also comes through in the taste. Decent bitterness, but finish is a bit short. Still, a good saison. Glad I tried it, and that I picked up a second bottle for the summer.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2011
(Bottle) Pours light hazy yellow with a large white head. The aroma is fantastic with fresh bread dough, crackers, straw, dry spices, light rubber, flowers, airy/dry spices (coriander, clove, mild nutmeg, basil and white pepper), light wood, lemon marmalade/lemon muffins, melon, apricot juice, subtle oranges, ripe pears, kiwi and subtle yellow exotic fruits. The nose is extremely fresh, bright and clean in a good way. The flavor is light sweet to dry, light bitter and tiny, tiny acidic. Very elegant spicy, fruity, grassy, mild citric, mild floral and bready. The mouthfeel is soft and clean with crisp, medium carbonation. Controlled, subtle esters and phenols. No alcohol notable. The finish is dry cracker-like with citrus and a light earthy bitterness. Near medium bodied.

ClubGonzo (4237) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, shared with the "United Norwegian Beer Bloggers’ Table" @ Brooklyn Brewery tasting in Oslo, May 2010. Slightly hazy orange body, massive foamy white head. This is pretty much as good as a saison can look in a snifter. :-) Aroma is Belgian ale yeast, candy sugars, citrus, grapes and champagne yeast. Taste is very dry, with grapes, bitter grassy hops, champagne yeast again and a bit of baker’s yeast in the aftertaste. Palate is smooth, light, fresh and dry. A very refreshing and nice saison.

Pours golden yellow with a white foamy head. Wild barnyard aroma, slight malty sweetness, and lightly citrus. Sweet and somewhat sour flavor. Bitter palate, thin texture, long finish.

LtDan (1796) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Appearance: Pours a murky dark yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that subsides to nothing over time.

Aroma: Big fruity nose, orange zest, white wine, large herbal hop bouquet.

Taste: Bitter spicy hops. Dry pale malt. Fruity yeast. Finishes crisp and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little on the heavy side with moderate carbonation.

Overall: An enjoyable Saison on the big side of both flavor and body.
