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.

Tap. Pours clear gold with thick, frothy white head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is grassy hops, biscuit malt, corn, straw, and citrus fruit. Flavor is sweet malt forward with medium hops and fruit esters; dry finish. Light body and warmth with medium carbonation.

750mL bottle: Pours a bright, hazy yellow, with a large white head, built with larege bubbles of CO2 which keep pouring. Aroma of lightly citrus hops, earthy yeast and fresh grass. Taste is slightly spicy with grassy and citrus hop notes and a complex array of yeast and hop tones layered nicely. Palate is bubbly and slightly astringent. Decent flavor overall, similar to champagne.

I drank this flat out of a recorked bottle....so I am being gentle on it. Banana flavored. Sorachi hops are delicious.

Draft. Yellow/golden color. White head. Great lacing. Taste is another story. I have to preface that with I’m not a big Saison fan. I think a Saison is good for beer #3 or 4 when you lose your palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light in taste and medium bodied. Slight citrus/fruity taste up front and strong effervescence on the end. Would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fatehunter (2123) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy straw color with a finger and half of white head. Just wonderful looking. The smell is a super mix of malt candy and grapefruit and sharp lemon zest. Sharp bitterness from beginning to end; strong lemon and little lime. There’s a malt backbone there, but barely. It’s like drinking a cloud. It’s light and fluffy texture, medium carbonation. Incredible. An amazing drink, sipping on heaven.

Served on draft at the Cloverleaf Tavern in West Caldwell, NJ. Pours a bright golden color with a rocky white head that disipates rather quickly. There’s only modest funk on the nose with some white pepper, bready malt, and hay. The flavors are wonderfully balanced and rich. Sweet to open with some dry spices to close. Very refreshing saison. Makes me want to try and brew one.

Lemony hop aroma and cloudy light golden body. Taste is a mismatch between the fruity belgian notes and the sharp lemon hop flavor. I can almost pick up a note of the bubblegum character of the Sorachi hops. Crisp and dry, not a smooth ending. Not really a fan, but I am finding most of the Brooklyn Brewery stuff I don’t care for.

Bright cloudy orange with a huge wafting white head. Aroma is of adding fresh hops to a batch of wort (slightly raw and unfinished). Taste is of malt, HUGE lemon, light hint of flowers and grass.

travita (4779) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Clear, big billowing white head, golden orange in color. The smell is spicy and fruit hop character, citrus, yeast, homebrew day, and good. Good lacing. The taste is lemon, citrus, yeast, raw hops, a little unrefined.
