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.

750ml, corked & caged bottle with a sweet label from grape & gourmet. pours a very bright, slightly hazy, yellow/gold with a thick, fluffy, snow-white leaving sticky lace. aroma is fantastic and refreshing with notes of freshly grated lemon zest, spicy white pepper, nectarine, and a touch of lime with sweet, perfumey, floral hops, dry grass, and dusty, rustic, belgian yeast. flavor is wonderful and a beautiful compliment to the aroma with fresh fruit notes of lemon and lime, honeydew melon, and a unique, sweet yet herbal floral quality sliding across the palate just before the spicy, yeasty finish. palate is medium bodied with spritzy carbonation and extremely refreshing after a hot day. overall, a fantastic saison and a very unique hop. i’d love to see a dipa dry hopped with these aces!

A huge thanks to Bigsilky and TheCheeseMan for recommending some awesome cheeses to pair with this brew. Bottle pours golden color with white head. Aroma is lemon rind. The smell is very refreshing. Mouthfeel has a lot of carbonation and is spritz like. The flavor continues the lemon fresh taste and is really good. This was quite refreshing as it was pretty hot here when I drank it. I didn’t really get any hops out of this one though. Still a solid brew. And the manchego cheese pairing was perfect.

Light citrus aroma. Pours a honey color with a bright white, airy head. Taste is light starting with a delicate wheat moving into a distinct grapefruit finish. Light body with a thin texture and fizzy carbonation. The ideal summer beer.

Bottle. Pours with a hazed vibrant yellow body with amazing retention and lace that sticks to the glass like foamy glue. A ring per sip. Aroma is very fragrant, perfume, lemon, hoppy, sharply spicy and lemon hop character, citrus zest, vanilla and herbs (provencal herbs). Lightly peppery. Taste is very dry, lemon, herbal, bitter, vanilla and dry grain. Very lively bubbles, dry, uplifting. One of the best products that I have had from Brooklyn. An excellent saison, that is right up my alley (a hoppy or bretted saison that smacks you in the face with flavor, yet is astonishingly drinkable and refreshing)!

I was surprised to see this sitting on the shelf in Dallas so I had to pick on up. Good thing I did because it was very good. The beer pours a hazy gold color with a white head. The aroma is strong lemon with some wheat and Belgian yeast. The flavor is lemons with some oranges. I also get some wheat, yeast and grassy hops. Low to medium bitterness. Very soft, creamy mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation. A very good saison.
