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.

BrewDad (5324) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Golden in color hazy with a thin bubbly head. Interesting champagne yeast dry flavor and aroma. Crisp light fruit flavors and aromas linger. This was the toast brew for the starting of the conference.

750ml bottle cork and caged split at Brass Tap, poured a light golden color, aromas of light funk, lemon, orange zest and light pepper. Flavors are the same as aroma light funkness throughout, light spicy finish.

teorn88 (5581) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Pint at Euston, London. Pours a yellow canary colour with a small white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy and mostly grainy and cereals, like rice. Taste is grassy and grainy with a sweet-acidic ricey note. Strange but pleasant. Body is thin with good carbonation. Overall, nice and interesting, but lacking the spicy yeasty true saison character to me.

PumpkinBurger (46) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 27, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 pours golden with some cloudiness, very thick foamy head. aroma carries lemon, some yeast and pepper.. maybe a tiny amount of sweetness up front but otherwise pretty tart, acidic and dry.. crisp and refreshing.. somewhat like a light shanty without the syrupy mouthful

bottle. Very happy this beer is widely available and not as expensive now. It should be an every day kinda go to. Huge head on hazy yellow. Aroma just like the deScription...lemon rind and Belgian yeast and sweet grassy malt. Flavors are the same with a nice dry bitter middle and end on a soft yeasty palate.

chanokokoro (138) - Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into 15 oz. gold-rimmed Brooklyn Brewery-branded stemware. Pours an attractive hazy gold with a huge pillowy three finger clean white head that has almost supernatural retention. Leaves behind considerable lacing. Pleasant smells of bread and slight citrus dominate. Mild grassy and citrus flavors combine with an exceptionally creamy mouthfeel that finishes with just the right hint of spice. The refreshing flavors make this beer a joy to the tastebuds and the quinntesential warm weather saison. Truly a world class beer and one of the most original and highest quality saisons brewed by a American craft brewery. A must try.

I sometimes read the commercial deScription of a beer and wonder if I’m really rating the same thing but "sunshine in a glass" sums this one up pretty nicely. Tangy zesty bright lemon pepper goodness.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Rotem’s place. Thanks Ariel. Hazy golden with frothy white head. Sour aroma, then a little flowery, very faint honey. Light bitterness, green taste. Light body, lively fizz, smooth finish. Cool.
