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.

750 ml. bottle. Served in a snifter. Yeasty aroma hits as soon as the bottle is uncorked. Spicy nose with, as mentioned earlier, heavy yeast. Pours a pale yellow with a three-finger head. Highly carbonated, fruity, crisp, and dry. Saison isn’t one of my favorite styles, but Brooklyn has brewed a nice one. This one ranks up there with Goose Island’s Sophie.

Barreras (1294) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours a golden color with a citrus champagne like aroma. Taste is light, lemon zest, and easy drinking. More bubbly and champagne like. Dry, and grassy, typical of the style.

smaynard6000 (804) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a golden color with generous foamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with spices. A bit of tropical fruit in the flavor along with a touch of bitterness and spices. Really well balanced. Light to medium bodied with creamy texture. Quite good.

trapped (1428) - New York, TURKEY - AUG 25, 2015
Draught. Clear rich yellow with small white creamy head, faint floral aroma, low carbonation, sweetish taste with citrus flavor, long bitter lemon zest finish. Interestingly perfume like.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a soft hazy burnt pale orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Lacing slid into the beer. The smell started off with some zesty lemon pulp and rind leading into nice sweet lemongrass tones. Some peppercorn helps to balance in a nice spicy sort of way. The Belgian yeast helps to add a light little bit of breadiness as it warms. The taste offers the nice zesty appeal flowing over the sweet and spiciness of the previously mentioned flavors. A dry citrusy aftertaste leads into a sweet dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable feel to it. Carbonation rises softly allowing the bitterness of the citrus rind being the harshness on my tongue. Overall, I actually went into this with low expectations, and it turned out better than I had thought. I’d have this again.

77ships (5500) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2015
355 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Malt Attacks. BBF 06/04/2016. Light hazy pale lemon, ginger golden. Little white head. Nose is that blue cheese Sorachi Ace hop smell that I love so much, intense, spices, lemon, light ginger, touch floral, above everything, intense blue cheese, I love Sorachi Ace so much, this right here is it, damn. Taste is a bit more on the floral side unfortunately & less blue cheese, strong grass & floral bitterness, wine gums, juicy lemon, light ginger, lemon, orange peel, I would love to try a dark version / DIPA version so much of this one, very juicy, light touch of grapefruit, touch cantaloupe, touch of milt almost,… As much as I love this one with a touch more blue cheese this would be just perfect for me. Light sparkling, touch of booze. Almost vaguely reminiscent of Duvel but better for sure. This one I would love to buy all of the time. So close to what I love. This one has been a want of mine for many years & it is better than I expected. Wow, I wish this one was sold in supermarkets here. I was debating between 4.8 & 4.9 for this but it is just so drinkable – I can actually see this becoming a staple if distributed locally which is something I feel very rarely about any beer (we get Brooklyn Lager now so who knows) – it does serve a 4.9/5 as far as I am concerned.

ShivanDragon (2339) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2015
Pours clear yellow/golden with a small white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of citrus, malt, staw, herbs, yeast. Taste is weak/medium bitterness, fresh, weak sweetness, citrus, long lasting, grassy notes, hay, very drinkable when chilled, floral, nice summer beer, should have had a bit less alcohol abv. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pumpkin87 (143) - - AUG 21, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 Pours cloudy straw yellow with smallish white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma when chilled is standard pine-citrus cleaning product, with underlying sweet malt; improves as it warms, adding buttermilk and honeyed note. On the palate, peppery pine gives way to strong menthol, almost camphor, before honey then pepper come through again. Very dry, and 7.2 percent ABV seems high for the light-medium body.
