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.

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.

Bottle. Unfiltered bright gold, 1 finger tight white head. Lemon zest, yeasty with crisp spice, super dry, grassy cracker notes. Perfect carb for a saison without being too bubbly. Really great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really liked this beer a lot. Pours a golden color that is a little on the light side with a big frothy white head that leaves generous amounts of lacing. Smells of lemon zest, spices and herbs. Tastes more of the same but with a more pronounced tangy sensation. Finishes dry and crisp. Light and oily on the tongue. Very smooth.

Look, I've been salivating over this beer for about two weeks, and it didn't disappoint. Spicy, dry and definitely worth a try.

Pours a slightly hazy dark straw from a bottle, thick white head with good lacing, lots of effervescence. Certainly looks the part of a belgian ale. Aroma is of candied lemon with some apple notes. Flavor is a nice grassy, dry bitterness, some floral quality in there too. Alcohol towards the end. Good beer.

Tasted from the bottle on the Barcelona Beer Fest (14/03/2015). Hazy golden colour with a decent off-white head. Aroma is very fruitly with presence of bread and grains. Taste is fruit and acid with full carbonation and medium body. Next one please!

I really love this beer. It's the perfect Belgian beer for someone who likes hops but doesn't want a Belgian IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
