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.

Bottle. Golden pour with huge carbonation and white head. This beer is full of spices and yeast, with a subtle lemon zing in the finish. Crisp and slightly prickly mouthfeel.

JulienHuxley (3267) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle. Light straw pour, white head, heavy lacing. Aroma is peppery hops, tea, some carrot aroma too but it’s faint and belgian yeast. Taste is quite spicy/peppery and dry. Good saison palate. This is way above expectations and an excellent saison.

Pours a hazy golden color in the glass with a thick white head. Very pleasant lemon and spice aroma. Interesting palate of citrus hops and spicy yeast character. Good beer.

Pours golden yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is very funky with a strong hop aroma. Flavour is also great dry and funky with w very bread yeast flavour it it. This is one hell of a funky saison. It lacks the citrus flavours that I find usually accompany saison. But It is still a hell of a brew.

I was curious to try this, since it is supposedly made with a rare breed of Japanese hops. The ace of diamonds decorates the label. Dark blonde pour with a big topper of froth. The aroma is very nice at first - fresh, sweet, citrusy hops - but then it turns a bit soapy and yeasty after a few minutes in the glass. Like a good saison, this ale is rustic and funky. There are a number of elements that complicate the flavor. The label says it is a golden saison made with Belgian yeast, which makes sense to my tastebuds. The label goes on to call it sunshine in a glass, and there I disagree. It is good, with notes of lemon zest, chamomile, mint, and malt. The hops are pleasantly bitter and not harsh. A good saison/golden ale yes, but a Sorachi Ace spectacular? Not quite.

750 ml bottle shared by Bill. Pour is a hazy golden color with a well formed off white head. Even in a tasting glass, it was quite lasting. Aroma is the hops initially, spicy and herbal, followed by a more traditional maltiness, and picking back up in the finish with earthiness and more of the hops. The taste follows, very active and herbal / spicy hops along with the base malts. The taste also has some lemon citrus sweetness that I did not detect in the nose. Flavors are decently integrated, though this is mostly about the Sorachi. Palate is medium bodied, dry finish, hoppy aftertaste. I was glad I had a chance to try this, thanks Bill.

Strong pine and light nut aroma. Cloudy golden color with a large white head. Sweet light spice with a very mild bitter finish. Moderate berry flavor develops in the middle. Light palate.
