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.

Pours a clear golden yellow on tap with solid white head and good lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, citrus esters, wheat, and a hint of spice. Taste follows, much more citrus sweetness and a hint less spice. Solid, but not very funky, better saison out there.

MrFecesious (927) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap at Darby's. Pours a hazy straw yellow with a frothy white cap. Aroma is stuffy straw, lemon, wet blanket, light fruit. Taste is bitterness, with a sweet tartness. Crispy and dry finish. Not too much carbonation.

PotjeBier (1602) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2014
Sample from 75 cl bottle @ Beer Temple. Pale yellow blonde color, hazy. Dense white head with good retention. Aroma’s of fruit, citrus, slightly sour, along with some caramel sweetness retronasal. Flavor is light to moderate sweet, caramel, hints of sour, crisp, refreshing. Light to medium bodied. Finishes caramellish, dry, rather bitter. Really nice.

dslam (34) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2014
Beautiful and crisp golden color, with a lot of carbonation that leads to a nice 3 finger high head. Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Not much on the aroma side or I just don’t have the sensors for it. The carbonation comes alive in your mouth and the entire liquid quickly turns into light foam. Simple crisp and leaves no trace behind. Overall I prefer beers with a good palette, so I didn’t enjoy this one as much.

kevinator (872) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Really pleasant and unique. Fruity esters and spicy aroma. Subdued golden coloring with plenty of effervescence. Dry and light mouthfeel that left a sharp impression. Almost a palate-cleansing effect. Dry fruits and peppery from what appeared to be a low final gravity. Hops presence was really well blended and strong but not harsh. Really interesting.

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 (581) - 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.
