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.

HUGE white head. Kind of annoying actually since it took forever to go down. Good Saison but I donít get the uniquness of this hop? Seems to be lacking the farmouse ale saison spice. If Saison Dupont are on the shelf together, I wonít be taking this Brooklyn Ale home.

KimJohansen (10347) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2010
Cloudy golden with a medium white head. Sweet aroma with fruity, yeasty notes. Hoppy flavour with fruit, hops and piney notes. Finished dry and bitter.

750ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a frothy white head. Great nose of lemon pepper, clove, banana and faint yeasty esters. A damn tasty saison.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
My bottle [750ml] shared with garthicus, GregClow, tupalev, jerc & mabel. Pours a hazy yellow with an average size lasting frothy white head. Lovely aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, spices, pepper, yeast and light herbal hops -- man, I really like this. Flavour is yeasty, spicy and citrusy along with some light sweetness -- delicious and refreshing. Average bodied. Well done, I donít understand some of the lower scores, I thought this was phenomenal.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Cloudy gold, big head, good lace. Funky nose, funk and bread and yeast in the mouth, with a hop that I donít recognize. I like Garretís big bottle corked takes on Belgians, but this one seems over-priced again. An interesting take on a Saison, made more interesting by the hop.

oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Smells of funk and spice. Soapy funk barn yard spice. Does that make sense? Probably not. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium head, highly carbonated. flavor is highly spiced. Lemon balm, burnt orange, pepper corn. Palate is clean, smooth, interesting. Very tasty.

SpringsLicker (3233) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Nice pop when the cap was lifted. Pours a hazy lemon yellow with a big frothy meringue like head. Spicy fresh lemony aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet with peppery, spicy lemon. Light and refreshing.

degbert (1317) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Poured from bottle. Color is a brilliant yellow-gold with a long-lasting, white head. The nose is lemon, toast, lemon, some funk, and, oh yeah, lemon. Taste has malt, lemon, and a clean hoppy bitterness. Palate is clean and prickly. Damn, Gina, this is a good beer.

Pours pale straw yellow, nose is spicy and fruity, taste is like lemon pepper marinade, delicious.

From a bottle poured a golden color with a good amount of head. Light crisp hoppy flavor with a quick finish.
