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.

blipp (7223) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours gold with a big white head. Sharp lemony aroma with some light spicy notes. The flavor is relatively understated and well balanced, with light lemony hops notes, spices, and flowers. Some slightly funky yeasty notes hide underneath. Awesome.

The pour is a light hazy yellow body with a thick three finger off white head. Huge carbonation in the body with some thick frothy lacing. The nose is very spicy (coriander, cloves, pepper) with an overall floral yeast note and a light woody note. Citrus esters and a bready malt on the nose. This smells alot like a dry white wine. The taste is sweet in the middle with a big citrus component with a very dry hoppy finish. The spice profile is very present with a big coriander and estery taste. There is a bit of an alcohol note on the finish. This is a very unusual beer with a nice spice and fruit profile with a dry and bitter finish. overall, this is a great Saison from Brooklyn.

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.

drowland (7103) - Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2011
11/2/11. 750mL bottle. Slightly hazy golden pour with a nice off-white head that sticks and laces a bit. Somewhat light aroma of lemon peel, hay, and pale grains. Sweet flavor with a bit of dusty grains, lemon peel, some pear, and lingering funky fruitiness. There’s also a touch of lingering dryness that also reminds me of honey. Not too shabby!

thewolf (11589) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Systembolaget, Halmstad.
Pours light golden with a big, staying, frothy, white head. Aroma has plenty of white pepper, bubblegum, mushrooms, apricot, crisp maltiness. Spritzy carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, crisp malts, still some bubblegum. Dry bitter, floral, peppery bitterness in the finish. One of the best Sorachi beers? Probabaly.

GlassBrass440 (306) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 12, 2011
Aroma: Citrus peel, candied ginger, and grass fill my nose. Appearance: Ever so slightly cloudy. Straw gold with a bright white head that lingers. Tiny bubbles slowly migrate to the top of the glass much like champagne. Taste: Lemon. Lots of lemon. Very unique. Some grassy notes as well. There is a slight metallic character that comes in far behind the citrus. As the label states, "it tastes like sunshine in a glass", and I couldn’t agree more. Palate: Amazingly light for such a strong brew. Very well attenuated and dry without being thin. The carbonation is reminiscent of champagne. Overall: This is a good toasting beer as elegant as the label.
