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.

TheEpeeist (3444) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2011
25.4 oz bottle. Opens with a loud pop, pouring a cloudy orange with a craggy white head. Nose is yeast, pastry dough, pear and lavender. Just lovely, evoking a country herb garden. Chewy, oily and resiny with zippy carb. Taste is honey, Orangina, basil and grass. Maybe a bit heavy for a saison but overall tasty and fun with an old world feel.

Pour is a murky golden color with a massive white head. Nose is of light fruits and some slight spice notes. Taste is very crisp and sweet version of the nose. Palate is light and refreshing.

ardiesr (62) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
750 ml bottle. Aroma is very strong citrus, some light funky notes. Beer is very well carbonated to style, white head lasts seemingly forever. Taste is tart, lemongrass flavours with other citrus. Not getting much of the saison funk coming through the strong hop flavour. An interesting saison, showcasing the Sorachi Ace hops very well, but the usual funky flavours are lost.

Ktwse (2321) - 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.
