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.

Excited to try this one-seeing as I like Local 1 so much. A-Body is a quite pale, nearly transparent golden yellow hue. Pours with a frothing, foamy 3 finger+ foamy white head. Head eventually subsides to 1 finger and has perfect retention from there. Some lacing is left behind in the glass. N-Nose is rather mild with a floral hop accent-but there is a lot of citrus presence as well-orange peel, lemon zest and maybe a hint of grapefruit. Below this is a hint of grain and yeast funk. T-Taste is similar to the smell. The cirtus characteristics come forward the most initially with a slight funky background. The finish is refreshing and dry with a good dose of floral hop flavor and bitterness as well as a hint of peppery spice. P- High tingly carbonation and a lightweight, yet full somewhat spritzy body with a hint of juicy consistency. O- Overall this is a great, hoppy, slightly dry, enjoyable saison. ABV is pushing 8% but is not noticable at all throughout the profile. Garret Oliver shows here for a second time that he really knows how to make a great saison/pale belgian ale.

Wholly crap the cork just dented the roof when in it exploded of the bottle. Brew looks hazy gold with a massive cap. Sweet sour, vanilla, lemon, honey floral aroma, this shit smells good! Wow I’ve never smelt a beer like this before. Taste is the awesome yeasty, wheat malt that’s has a creamcicle like taste. A yummy and unique herbal hop shows up in the finish. Oh man I love this beer!!! I swear the citrus vanilla flavor starts to turn into a mint vanilla, so very good. What a great beer I’m so glad Gully shared it with me.

Bottle, shared with Malfair. Hazy light gold, lively lingering head. Interesting aroma is sweet and spicy with fresh vegetal undertones, bringing celery root to mind. Nice sweet pale malts with a smooth texture, kind of buckwheaty in a way. Gently spicy palate, lightly herbal, again with that difficult to define fresh vegginess. Finish is dry and very peppery. Delicious and intriguing, a real treat!

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.

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 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.
