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.

750 mL bottle from Rouses Market in New Orleans, Louisiana, served in a wine glass. Pours hazy amber with a moderate, fluffy off-white head. The head remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of lemon, grapefruit, apple and grape, along with honey, pale malts and Belgian yeast. The flavour is moderately sweet, with honey, citrus and Belgian yeast. The finish is long and malty with citrus rind. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dryish texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice saison. It is nicely complex and very enjoyable to drink. Worth another try. 2012-04-29

The Sorachi Ace Saison was poured into, appropriately, some Brooklyn Brewery snifters that just happened to be sitting out in the kitchen. The golden amber, slightly hazy liquid is topped by a fluffy white head. The color was warm and rich. The aroma had a bit of yeastiness to it, along with fruit and a touch of lemon zest. The flavor is mildly spicy, with hints of white pepper. There’s a distinct lemon zest flavor, not sour, over a substantive malt base. The finish is quite dry with lingering bitterness. The beer has less of the "funkiness" of a typical Saison, and comes across relatively mild. It maintained its flavor as it warmed over discussions of life and politics.

The head is medium, the body blond and cloudy. It smells strong CO² , citrus, honey. The taste is different hoppy, citrus, a bit honey. Not bad, but not my favourite hop. 12/10/10/11/15/10

On tap. Lemony aroma and taste abounds. This beer is "sunshine in a glass" as advertised. Cloudy and golden. Perfect summer beer but great anytime..

Currently drinking while typing. Very nice indeed! It has a striking aroma of citrussy lemon, tangerines, apricots, hoppiness and classic saison yeasts. After pouring you have a bright golden vessel of sparkly loveliness with a fizzy perfect white head which sustains well and leaves nice lacing. The taste is very gentle and delicate, very well hidden alcohol content. Saison flavours are present especially the array of citrus flavours and Belgian yeast. Nice clean finish with an overall light palate, medium body, a texture thinner than I expected, with an average carbonation and a slow light finish of grassy hops. Very good beer, personally one of the better Brooklyn beers on offer, definitely would drink this one again.

Pours a lovely golden color with 1 in head that soon disappears. Good lacing. The flavor penetrates well. Yeasty odor and a comfortable palate reminiscent of a classic blonde ale. Hops enter the equation towards the end with grassy notes and a smooth bitter finish. I would drink this again. Not too much happening in terms of complexity but very smooth and a great drinking and pairing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours a light golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is laden with citrus, particularly lemon and grapefruit, hops, and pine. Taste is light and bubbly, with a nice balance of lemon, grassy hops, and hay. Maybe a touch of apricot on the finish. Finishes off slightly bitter and yeasty. Light even for a saison, but delicious.

Golden pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is full of lemon zest and citrus with a little funk. Taste is crisp lemon, grass, and a little dank. Very dry on the palate with prickly carbonation. Really good.

The Sorachi Ace starts off with powerful citrus aromas of grapefruit and lemon zest. Flavors are crisp and citrusy with light flavor of hay in the background. Not a particularly earthy or funky saison but refreshing and quite enjoyable.
