2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
My first experience with sorachi hop. Very interesting beer . Important and intensive . Flavor fruity , lemon , spice and a lot of hop. Evident high fermetation with complex aromqs of yeast. Full body. I don’t like specially because the bitterness is too dry and aggressive. I will wait to drink again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
There’s a slight hint of lemon, and a bit of spiciness in the aroma, it pours a hazy straw with very large amounts of carbonation and a fluffy white head. The lemon notes come through a bit more in the flavor, with a strange aftertaste along with it. The spice notes are there as well, and it is exceptionally dry. I’m not sure that the Sorachi Ace is a hop that works well with the rest of the Saison notes. It’s not bad, but I’ve had better.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a large bottle into a snifter glass to sample. The beer had a pretty cloudy straw-gold color with a very large creamy-foamy white head with very good retention, cling, and lacing. Its aroma featured grapefruit, citrus, and straw notes with some grain and lemon. It had sweet and bitter taste, with lemon zest, citrus, and a light grain and straw undertone. The body was fairly well carbonated with a dry, thinner mouthfeel.

Pours a hazy pale gold, with 1 finger of foam. Very grassy and herbal aroma, slight funkiness from the yeast. Medium bodied with a grassy taste and a hint of lemon. Excellent

On tap in a tall tulip. Fine white head. Clings to the glass all the way. Straw yellow with a slight haze. Big tart lemon rind in the nose. Great dry first bite across the palate. Not sure if its the Sorachi, bit there’s a fun funk through the middle. Crisp finish. Great beer!

W aromacie cytrusy, trawa cytrynowa. Barwa złota, mętny, kiepska piana. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Cytrus, trawa cytrynowa. Mocno nasycony, aż szczypie w ustach. Bardzo ciekawy saison.

Hazy pale yellow brew. Light and quite fizzy, refreshing, yeasty and with a dry finish. The hops are a bit thin, as are the spices. It is what it is, a pretty good hot summer day brew.

From growler into a tulip glass pours cloudy orange with a little head. Earthy smell of hay. Earthy taste a little lemon after taste finely carbonated like a sparkling wine. Not a bad says on especially considering it was 9.99 for a growler

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy light gold with minimal head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is difficult to describe since there are some notes I don’t usually smell. I can detect some lemongrass, funk, a little spice and earthiness. Taste is lemon, yeast. The finish is bitter, dry and crisp. Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Interesting.
