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.

Low marks on the nose, ’cause there was not alot going on there, but everything else was nearly perfect. A head that looked like it would float a coin. Smooth palate with the perfect dryness.

dmac (3892) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2010
750 ml bottle from Spirits Red Bank. Poured an okay looking chill hazed light golden straw colored body underneath a large bubbly white head. Aroma is intriguing to say the least...yeast, pepper, spruce needles, citrus, and a bit of funk. The body is medium to fuller with a slightly dry finish and slightly bubbly carbonation. Flavors of funk, spice, spruce, citrus, white pepper and yeast. Really interesting beer that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2010
$12.99/ 750 ml. Central Market. San Antonio, TX. I really like this bottles presentation with the Ace card, looks cool. A slightly cloudy light golden yellow beer with a huge billowing head that slowly fades. The aroma is yeast, pepper, citrus. The taste is very light, grainy, and the yeast prickles the tongue and seems to add some bitter qualities. A nice clean refreshing saison perfect for the summer. Too bad its so damn expensive.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a large and foamy off white head. Aroma of zesty lemon, Sorachi Ace hops, floral notes and yeast. Taste of Sorachi Ace Hops, zesty lemon, floral notes, yeast and light spice. Good stuff especially during a hot day.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle. Aroma is pungent spiciness with peach and apricot fruit notes, along with tangerine, lemon, and a distinct funkiness without invoking any impression of bacterial or brettanomyces infection. Pours cloudy yellow with intensely active carbonation to a short lived fluffy white head. Flavor is an absolutely beautiful balance of spicy, funky, and dry. An absolute exclamation of everything that is saison. A vague pungent funkiness wraps around black pepper and coriander. Fruit is there, but not overwhelmingly expressive. Peaches and tangerines are all over the place. Everything is subtle but fully available. This needs to be in the BJCP guidelines as an example of a saison, because it may very well be the most exact example of the style.

Soft gold color with a tall, pure white head. Smells springy -- floral perfume, juicy oranges, jasmine. Flavorful on the palate, kind of grabby. Honeydew, lemon, toffee, chicory and brazil nut.
