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 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

Bottle. Light cloudy orange pour. Heavily carbonated but this dissipates quickly. Spicy, yeasty aroma. Pretty unique taste with lemon spice, very dry, hop bitterness that is different from the usual. Interesting beer; spicy food seemed to overpower it. Definitely worth a try if you’re into variety.

Rated based on notes from 25 May 2012 -- The hops on this are very distinct and imo overpower this beer. Otherwise a bubbly saison that’s pretty good.

jahshuwuh (483) - USA - MAY 17, 2015
A dull orangeish copper color with finger of white head. Smells of tropical, citrus, coriander, perm, lemon grass, corn. Taste is lightly spicy hop, coriander, clove, barnyard, then some sweet malt, banana, juicy fruit at the end along with some more barnyard funk. Fairly well balanced, drinkable, traditional. Moderately dry, moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ScipioA (376) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pour is a bright cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aromas are tons of fruit and yeast that continue into the flavor. The hops put out some citrus and herbs that come through stronger on the tongue than they do on the nose. Thick and chewy, but maybe a little harsher carbonation than I like.

Tap at brewery. Hazy yellow orange pour with a big white head. Yuzu, lemon zest, honey. Medium light body. One dimensional bitter light finish

I DONNT UNDERSTAND WHY U PUT HOT SAUSE IN BEERS. I SAW ROUGUE HAD A SIROCHRA BEER NOW BRROKLYN HAS ONE TOO. TEH GOOD NEWS IS THAT IN THIS BEERS I CANNT REALY SMELL THE SIROCHRA. ITS JUST A LITTEL SPICEY; NOT TOO BAD. THIS WOULD PROBLY TASTE GOOD WITH MY FAMUSS BIG MACS MY BARBEECUE? TtHE PROBLEM IS I DIDNT DRINK THIS WHILE I EAT MEAL, SO ITS KIND OF WEIRD. TASTE LIKE SPICES AND FRUITS. BUT IF TWAS MORE LIKE PLINY (THE GRATEST CRAFT BEERS EVER) I COULD DRINK ALL THIS TIME,

A good saison with a strange hop profile. I don’t know what to say or how to describe the flavors imparted by the sorachi ace hops. It is not great, it is not bad either--more of a novelty to me. I don’t think I can drink that much of this beer, but regardless, it is solid.

Cool_Bond (1931) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2015
Scent of flowers, fruit and tropical fruit. The taste is spicy, fruity and bitter. Mediocre bitterness which fills the upper and front part of the mouth for a long time. Gets worse towards the end. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

erickok (4135) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 9, 2015
Very active carbonation, crisp body with light yet characterful fermentation. Spiced, lemony hops, very mineral. Refreshing even after drinking the whole body. Quite bitter and great looking. Yum! (75cl bottle at La Reserve Tours)
