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.

ClubGonzo (4756) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2011
Bottle, shared with the "United Norwegian Beer Bloggers’ Table" @ Brooklyn Brewery tasting in Oslo, May 2010. Slightly hazy orange body, massive foamy white head. This is pretty much as good as a saison can look in a snifter. :-) Aroma is Belgian ale yeast, candy sugars, citrus, grapes and champagne yeast. Taste is very dry, with grapes, bitter grassy hops, champagne yeast again and a bit of baker’s yeast in the aftertaste. Palate is smooth, light, fresh and dry. A very refreshing and nice saison.

amg800 (237) - Ada, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Pours golden yellow with a white foamy head. Wild barnyard aroma, slight malty sweetness, and lightly citrus. Sweet and somewhat sour flavor. Bitter palate, thin texture, long finish.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Appearance: Pours a murky dark yellow gold with a big fluffy white head that subsides to nothing over time.

Aroma: Big fruity nose, orange zest, white wine, large herbal hop bouquet.

Taste: Bitter spicy hops. Dry pale malt. Fruity yeast. Finishes crisp and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, a little on the heavy side with moderate carbonation.

Overall: An enjoyable Saison on the big side of both flavor and body.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2011
Nice fresh taste. Bursting with spicy, bready with a full mouth and tastes of citrus, malt and a smooth dry finish. Very good product and a new hop to boot!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2011
Bottle @ Avenue Pub: Pours a hazy gold color with a huge white head. The nose is fresh and hoppy with a light peppery yeast and wheat notes. The sorachi ace is good, fresh and piney, but it doesn’t have much punch to it in the background, more like a garnish than a brewing hop. Good underlying saison and they pair together very well.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/gold, thick white head, lovely lacing. Nose is perfumed - cold cream, lemon, sherbet, meringue, goddamn this smells great. Flavours of fresh cream, spicy lemongrass, cold cream, sherbet, lovely florals! This is a pretty epic brew. Almost on the same level as some of the Hill Farmstead stuff.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2011
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color; medium sized head. The aroma is fruity and very refreshing, playing on tropical fruits and a dash of citrus fruits (bergamot...); also a light touch of rose water. Highly carbonated and smooth, the Saison flavor is pleasant, mild, without a too strong character, and it allows to the noble hop to mark its presence, with similar remarks as for the aroma. Extremely balanced, refreshing, and very pleasant.

Aroma of bread, cereal, grass, citrus. Somewhat earthy. Appearance is pale a bit cloudy with some lively carbonation. Minimal head with decent lacing.

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.
