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 tans with a bit of frothy white head. Aroma is full of lemon and doughy yeast. Sweet taste with a well rounded wheat and yeast flavor. Finishes crisp and smooth. A great saison

HKdIPA (296) - HONG KONG - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle at Brian's in Brooklyn. Very hazy orange-golden pour with dense frothy head. Aroma is zesty spicy saison - orange and lemon peel with clove and cinnamon. Taste follows - very lemony zesty (sorachi ace?) and usual saison flavors. Crisp and bubbly (fine bubbles). Very solid saison but maybe not as special as I'd hoped.

rejtable (1431) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours clear straw gusher of a head and tons of lacing. Nose is yeast and fruit. Flavours of apples, dough, maybe some peach and lemon and some great grassy bitterness. Taste is light sweet med/light bitterness. Medium body with lively carbonation. So drinkable.

aleksander9 (519) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2014
Golden with huge foamy head. Good lacing. Aroma is orange, lemon and basically all other citrus fruits. Grapefruit, some lemongrass and some spicy saison. Fruity palate with average carbonation. Aftertaste is fruity, dry, spicy, alcohol, citrus fruits and lemon peel. Overall: Very nice single hop. I could drink tons of this.

Alpha10 (359) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
2014/12/14 - Pours a hazy, golden-straw colour with a massive, soapy, white head that slowly reduces. Aroma is lemon citrus, funk, herbal hops and mild honey. Taste is similar to nose; lemon citrus, herbal hops, funk, light pepper and mild honey. Mouthfeel is light to medium with sharp carbonation and a, spiced, drying, citrus rind finish. Very enjoyable. Fellow Ratebeer guzzler & all around philosopher of the suds Helsdon (his review is two below mine) has been pushing this brew on me & man, is he right. Pops out of the bottle & into the glass a beautiful saffron yellow & offers a foamy cap of three -- no, jeez look -- four fingers. A quick action sip prevents spillage & wastage. This a fantastic saison with all the spices, pepper & funkiness you’d want. The bonus here is the bountiful Sorachi hopping. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

veronneaupy (175) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Au nez, c'est frais, crisp et levuré. En bouche, on goute la levure, l'aneth et le miel. La finale est fraîche, assez courte et sèche. Bien joué ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer pours a hazed light golden yellow with a generous bubbly off-white head. The aroma is light fruit, yeast, citrus, and spices. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. There is a hint of creaminess. The flavour is honey, hops, yeast and some light fruits and spices in the background. Very drinkable.

TheJester (1958) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2014
750 mL bottle. Pours almost clear straw yellow with a large, rocky white head. Mild aroma is fairly typical for a saison, only perhaps a touch sweeter. Lemon candies, maybe. The flavour is mild, and the hopping is subtle. Not as dry as many saisons.
