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. Pours hazy yellow with a large, frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (straw, bread, hay, meal), heavy hops (citrus), and average esters (fruity) with notes of key lime and barnyard. Flavor is average malt (straw, bread, hay, meal), heavy hops (citrus), and average esters (fruity) with notes of key lime and barnyard. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, high carbonation and a dry and biting finish. Very nice ale! Sorachi Ace hops are excellent.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2009
From JW77. Man a really hoppy aroma and a nvery nice pale gold beer lead to a flavor that is quite unexpected. It smells like a hop bomb but instead is a nice smooth malty and bit funky beer. I really enjoyed it. Very cool

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Draft… Cloudy, straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. Perfumey, spicy scents of pear, clove and rye. Light to medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Crisp, spicy, dry flavor. Perfectly balanced. The finish is spicy and bone-dry. Not really my thing, but very refreshing, drinkable and interesting.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Tap at Vermont Brewer’s Fest 2009. Very pale straw coloured brew. White head. The aroma is quite nice. Lots of light spice with a bright lemony nose and a lot of nice wheaty spiciness. Fairly dank resinous hoppiness as well that I attribute to the dryhopping, but I’m not sure if that’s the case. Lean and bright with a lot of nice lemony citrus and a good contribution from both the yeast and the hops. Pretty damn tasty really.
