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.

Fatehunter (1647) - 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.

Tognetta (334) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 30, 2015
Amarelo palha, turva, espuma de boa formação e média retenção. Aroma levemente ácido, frutas amarelas, amargor de lúpulo diferente de tudo que conhecia. Paladar trás um pouco do álcool aparente, lúpulo mais aparente que o malte. Aftertaste aveludado, média duração. Um estilo novo para mim, muito boa.

12 ounce bottle. Bland compared to my favorite saison: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/new-holland-monkey-ki Sorachi Ace hops are interesting.

Cloudy, light golden in colour with a slight white head. Slightly fizzy in the glass. Flowery herb, lavendar and citrus notes - tasty.

jackadutton (5) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015 does not count
Bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with small white head. Not too strong of an aroma, but one of bananas and cloves - smells very ’French’, which I imagine comes from the champagne yeast used for secondary fermentation. Quite an odd taste, with banana, lemon and grassy notes. It is quite floral, but not bitter. Doesn’t taste anywhere near its ABV. A refreshing summer beer, but nothing too spectacular.

mikesaum (642) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Pours bright gold with a white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is very nice and fruity, I can’t really pinpoint the aromas but damn it smells nice, just very refreshing, light lemon and even some banana, nice yeasty notes as well. Taste is also very nice and refreshing, also light lemon, grassy hop flavors with light bitterness, some banana notes and a sweet semi dry finish. Awesome summer time brew.

leaparsons (8837) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle. Hazy gold with a large white head. Wheat with caramel and funky lemon cheesecake. Woody with lightly nutty cereal and green pine. Banana yeastiness. Floral with grapefruit bitterness to finish. Very good.

weordie (328) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Pours a straw yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of bananas, yeast and cloves like a wheat beer. A strange taste, it’s smooth, bit of lemon and some herbs but nothing over powering and not very bitter. Pleasant and could drink a few of them but nothing spectacular.
