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.

Very hazy golden copper pour. Course white head w/ lots of lacing. Lots of bright lemon and spice. Pick up quite a bit of wheat malt. Flavor is very similar. Tastes like a sorachi whet smash. Alright. ---Rated via iPhone

Raistlin (282) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
Yellow, hazy, very thin head, low carbonation, loads of powdery sediments floating around. Aroma is grassy, floral and spicy. Mouth feel is bitter and carbonated, long bitter after taste. Flavours are spice, lime zest, grass and loads of SA hops.

flatmatt (1458) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2016
12 oz bottle, best by September 2016. Pours golden, filled with fine to medium particles, and a white head. Aroma is skunked at first, but then more of a lemony citrus, wild mint. Pale malty flavor mixing with pear, herbal flavors (like that wild mint), white grape, with a touch of the skunkiness still hanging in there. Pretty good other than the problems caused by the age/storage (skunking and appearance). I think I would really like a fresh bottle were one to be found.

hrabren (855) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 11, 2016
Bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Marko. Clear light yellow, medium white head. Citrus, bubblegum, light smoky, stinging yeasty. Dry and spicy, medium carbonation. Medium carbonation, long dry finish, resembling a Champagne. Drinkable. Innovative take on the saison style, interesting.

PanMarek (208) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Fruity nose with some citrus and floral notes and some barnyard yeast. Hazy yellow pour with moderate white foam. Crisp on the tongue with very active carbonation and very dry finish. The flavor balances the hops and the yeast well. The dryness is very surprising. The alcohol is noticeable but does not seem like it’s over 7%. If I were blindfolded, I might not have identified it as a saison, but after having it in several different places, it makes perfect sense.

nazzty (1256) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2016
Very interesting blend of flavors that caught my attention. The result is a well produced saison with interesting hoppy flavors that distinguishes the brew from the traditional saison.

cattaneopapa (285) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
Straw colored and clear with a large, fluffy white head on top. Good retention and some lacing on the glass. A punchy aroma starts things off with a bang. Dill and lemon initially, then bright peppery spice gets your attention. Almost perfumy or floral in a way with notes of grapefruit and apples. Tasting it brings out a citrusy flavor with notes of pumpkin sweetness. Long aftertaste with a heavy, spicy, and dry finish. Medium-light bodied with lively carbonation that gives it an effervescent quality.
