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.

Nice fresh taste. Bursting with spicy, bready with a full mouth and tastes of citrus, malt and a smooth dry finish. Very good product and a new hop to boot!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle @ Avenue Pub: Pours a hazy gold color with a huge white head. The nose is fresh and hoppy with a light peppery yeast and wheat notes. The sorachi ace is good, fresh and piney, but it doesn’t have much punch to it in the background, more like a garnish than a brewing hop. Good underlying saison and they pair together very well.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/gold, thick white head, lovely lacing. Nose is perfumed - cold cream, lemon, sherbet, meringue, goddamn this smells great. Flavours of fresh cream, spicy lemongrass, cold cream, sherbet, lovely florals! This is a pretty epic brew. Almost on the same level as some of the Hill Farmstead stuff.

fiulijn (16144) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color; medium sized head. The aroma is fruity and very refreshing, playing on tropical fruits and a dash of citrus fruits (bergamot...); also a light touch of rose water. Highly carbonated and smooth, the Saison flavor is pleasant, mild, without a too strong character, and it allows to the noble hop to mark its presence, with similar remarks as for the aroma. Extremely balanced, refreshing, and very pleasant.

Aroma of bread, cereal, grass, citrus. Somewhat earthy. Appearance is pale a bit cloudy with some lively carbonation. Minimal head with decent lacing.

A nice effort, beautifully packaged. The japanese hop works well, imparting a nice spicy fruitiness. Fairly light in color with just a bit of haze. refreshing and delicious.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold, with frothy white head. Bready malt, lemon zest, bitter floral hops, light brett funk, citrus, and hay. A very nice dry citrusy saison, that is clean and drinkable.

Elegantly packaged 750 ml corked and caged brown bottle. It pours an elegant clear yellow/gold with a billowing bright white head. It looks clean for the style, but it does look magnificent. The smell is a bouquet of springy fruit flavors. The hops give a huge lemony scent off to go along with the peachy, apricoty, spicy saison yeast. It has a touch of sugar in there too, smells like a summer breeze. This one has such a fruity flavor. Apricot, orange, lemon, maybe some melon, it is pure light fruity goodness. The malts here are also dynamite, they accent the yeast to perfection. There is a subtle bitterness but not overpowering that make sit even more of a refresher. With more tastes I’m getting some candied mango int eh flavor. The yeasty spice complements the fruit flavors, especially the peach exceptionally. They did this one right. It seems like American craft brewers have learned to perfect the Saison, I was enthralled by Sofie, this one takes my enthrallment to a whole new level.

On tap at The Brickskeller. Reviewed from notes. Pours a light straw lemon color with some haze. Good white head. Nose is lemon, grass, and a bit of earth. The taste brings out lemon, grass, some herbs, and a hint of earth. Bitter and dry. Drinks quite well. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-19-2010
