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.

bottle. Very happy this beer is widely available and not as expensive now. It should be an every day kinda go to. Huge head on hazy yellow. Aroma just like the description...lemon rind and Belgian yeast and sweet grassy malt. Flavors are the same with a nice dry bitter middle and end on a soft yeasty palate.

This beautiful, smooth saison fills the mouth with mild spices & green tea. The champagne yeast makes this taste like the queen of beers. Light & refreshing yet subtly complex. Rated by BrewTom

freretoc (556) - Besançon, FRANCE - JUL 4, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 75cl, couleur blonde effervescence moyenne mais une mousse très très intense qui continue même à monter dans le verre ( trop de levures ?) bière très agréable très rafraichissante le côté Sorachi casse complètement l’idée de la saison avec un côté très vanillé ultra agréable, peut être un peu écœurante à cause de ça pour une saison.

Chadski4 (95) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Huge foamy white head that dissipates slowly. A bit on the light side in terms of flavors. Pear, apple and pepper are evident but a touch disappointing relative to the cost.

Ron (2440) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle has been in my beer cellar for almost a year. Golden color, slight hazy, fluffy two finger head. Yeasty lemon nose, a little bit of citrus hops, hay. Well carbonated, continous bubbles. Taste of yeasty lemon, grapefruit, then some kind of sweetness. The finish has a bitter, dry and clean finish with yeast. Thanks Ed.

VDuquerroux (208) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle, 75cL. Home. A golden pale yellow beer with a huge thin white head. Good persistence. Beautiful lacing. Fruity aroma (tropical fruits, lemon), herbs, resin. Medium refreshing bitter. Light body, medium silky texture, average to lively carbonation, dry bitter finish. Overall, I enjoyed this one : really fruity, nice bitterness and palate.

UXO (111) - CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with one finger of white head, good persistence and moderate spotty lacing. Nose is dusty funk and citrus with some malt. Taste is dusty and bitter, caramel malt, with a bitter and floral aftertaste. Medium body, moderate to low carbonation. Not my cup of tea. I’ve had Sorachi hops before, and had the same reaction. Musty and dry, without much malt.

Nische (633) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
Pours a hazy gold with full head and lots of carbonation. Aromas of lemon, dill, light honey, and melons. Flavors are similar with a bit of white pepper and a light bitter finish. Fresh and clean. Very nice.

MatteoD. (135) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle. Grande cappello di schiuma bianca e pannosa, colore oro giallo e limpido, aroma di torta di noci, note di cocco dovute al luppolo giapponese, al palato corpo medio pieno e leggera carbonazione, nota alcolica abbastanza nascosta, mote ancora maltate e retrogusto di cocco. Mi è piaciuta molto questa sai son fuori dagli schemi, un prodotto di grande qualità.

Lele (82) - ITALY - JUN 22, 2014
Ottimo e particolare esempio di saison. Non è ricca di vari sapori, anzi, ne è accentuato solo uno (volutamente), quello dato dal luppolo giapponese Sorachi. Questo, insieme ai lieviti dello champagne, la rendono una birra di gran classe e dissetante. Magari per una cena di pesce...

Meilby (7189) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle 750ml @ Haand Ølfestival 2014
Pours hazy golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, wheat, fruity, caramel and yeast. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long yeasty, sweet and fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.
