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.

Thanks for drwoland for bringing this to the Proof tasting! Medium gold pour, nice white head. Tart lemony aroma. Slight sourness to the taste. Nice, lemony flavor with some yeasty notes. Mouthfeel has a nice spritiziness to it.

11/2/11. 750mL bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour with a nice off-white head that sticks and laces a bit. Somewhat light aroma of lemon peel, hay, and pale grains. Sweet flavor with a bit of dusty grains, lemon peel, some pear, and lingering funky fruitiness. There’s also a touch of lingering dryness that also reminds me of honey. Not too shabby!

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 Bottle from systembolaget Uddevalla, Sweden. Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Spicy and citric aroma. What a nice and well blended flavour. Moderate sweet, hoppy, citric and notes of some spices

Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Halmstad.
Pours light golden with a big, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has plenty of white pepper, bubblegum, mushrooms, apricot, crisp maltiness. Spritzy carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, crisp malts, still some bubblegum. Dry bitter, floral, peppery bitterness in the finish. One of the best Sorachi beers? Probabaly.

GlassBrass440 (271) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 12, 2011
Aroma: Citrus peel, candied ginger, and grass fill my nose. Appearance: Ever so slightly cloudy. Straw gold with a bright white head that lingers. Tiny bubbles slowly migrate to the top of the glass much like champagne. Taste: Lemon. Lots of lemon. Very unique. Some grassy notes as well. There is a slight metallic character that comes in far behind the citrus. As the label states, "it tastes like sunshine in a glass", and I couldn’t agree more. Palate: Amazingly light for such a strong brew. Very well attenuated and dry without being thin. The carbonation is reminiscent of champagne. Overall: This is a good toasting beer as elegant as the label.

Absolutely Brilliant. This pours hazy yellow with smalls constant bubbles. Nice head. Aroma is just a tease for what is coming in taste. Taste is almost a creamy citrus...lemon/orange. It’s a bit sweet but perfect for this brew. The finish is fantastic. Dry and leaves you salivating for more. Sometimes you drink a beer that you never want to see end....this was one of those.

piscator34 (2114) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottled sample consumed at Avenue Pub. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromatic profile starts with lemon-lime hops, crispy pilsner malt, and wraps up with some black and white pepper notes. The lemon-lime and dry pilsner malt character follows through on the mouth, picking up some wildflower honey and subtle spice elements along the way. Light bodied and dry on the palate. Very appetizing. One of the better North American takes on the style, although not quite to the level as Hill Farmstead.

The taste was mellow, yet so subtle and really good. Dry. The yeast is true to the description of this beer. A bit bubbly, pleasant and citric. I am not a big fan of this style of beer, however I do think this one is my top in the style at this time.

Bottle. Sorachi hop nose: vanilla, oak, citrus, suntan lotion, coconut. Fun and interesting. Deep gold, a bit cloudy, with lace. Sweet—very—with honey, fruits, solvent, coconut and lemon. Soft, smooth mouth. Fun and interesting, and very good, though a bit too sweet.
