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.

( 22oz counter-pressure filled bomber thanks to BA ballewblake) Pours cloudy yellow with nice fluffy head. Nose is funk, brett, spices, minimal vinous notes and florals. Taste is citrus oils, perfume, brett with a spicy and very dry finish.

Draught at Taco Mac, on Peachtree Street (metropolis). Light transparent yellow appearance with a fluffy head. A bit lighter than other Saisons that I have had. A very fruity banana aroma. I think this beer is a bit overpowered by the banana aroma. Not the aroma I was expecting, although the beer is very pungent. Beer has an odd banana, chemically engineered fruit flavor. Ah...the flavor is a bit harsh; it seems rather fake to me. A smooth Saison, but that fruit and banana flavor dominate. Not very light in terms of texture, which is what I am used to with Saison style beers. I think this is a bit too much for me. This is more like a weak tripel.

Pale golden pour white head a spicy lemon aroma ..some lacing on the glass .. a very different taste than the usual saison had a spicy lemon earthy taste and a spice of something different which must be the zesty sorachi ace hop ..... definitely worth a try this is a good brew

Interesting IPA from Brooklyn. Was expecting a bit hoppiness here. It was described to me as a hopped witbier...

Draft at Mr. Dunderbak’s. Pours light gold with a white head. Nose is light malt, some mild hops and bitterness with citrus, grass, pepper, and spice. Flavor is similar with an enjoyable dose of light malt and very mid Sorachi bitterness. If this is what Sorachi hops do, then I like it. This is a great, relatively light Saison.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Draft at RedLight. Lightly hazy yellow gold. Hop notes of lemon, grass, and clean bitterness. Fresh, crisp grains on the malt front. Yeast adds a bit of pepper and mild dose of funk. Medium body, softly carbonated, great mouthfeel. Excellent saison.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Draft at redlight redlight. Golden with a thick white head. Lots of mint and candy in the nose, hints of the farm. Nice and crisp on the palate, though a little too thin. A bitter earthiness comes to the forefront whereas the mint and candy subside. Opens up as it warms. Pretty good. Found it hard to precisely pinpoint the sorachi hop as this is the only beer I’ve yet had (that I know of) brewed with it. I’d be interested to try another syle with this same hop.

Pours hazy amber with a white head. Smells of pineapple, sage. Tastes of pineapple, spicy, citrussy, peppery, lightly bitter.
