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.

A unusual saison. Looks like a wheat beer, mirky and white with a very frothy head. A lot of carbonation and reminds me of a champagne or prosecco. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright straw colour. Peppery, musty saison aromas with a touch of citrus. Big whack of herbaceous and clove with a pleasant citrus hop presence tailgating.

Countbeer (5264) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2015
bottle: Shaker: Cloudy orange body. White head. Aroma is stingy, there’s some stingy hops and herbal tones but also a synthetic plastic stingy note which unfortunately comes back in the flavour too. Of course there’s yeast and a peppery tone but the yeast isn’t typical Saison ish as the beer also has a subtle fruity note and of course the Sorachi Ace does it’s work. But for some reason, As I like the hop sort a lot, I am not to fond of this beer... Unbalanced, stingy, plastic... Aftertaste is grains, light fruity, lighter bitter... Low carbo, creamy stingy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Nah, not my cup of tea, unfortunately as I was looking forward tasting this one! Already the aroma from the bottle marked the plastic tone. But I am open minded.... Unfortunately it didn’t work out with this one...

Smaak gaat van bitterzuur naar prikkelend licht zoet. Witte wijn, meloen met limoen flinters. Nasmaak fris fruitje en bittertje, wat droog. Aroma is zacht en wat op de achtergrond. Ondertoon van een fruitsalade, daarnaast ook bitter (wat je niet kan ruiken...), bepaalde complexiteit. Die complexiteit boeit, ook de smaak doet je naar volgend slokje hunkeren. Geen kraag op geel vloeistof.

Spicey and hoppy aroma! Koriander, chili and silty. Also a bit grassy from the hops. Light yellow, a bit cloudy and a small white head. Strong fresh flavours. Bitterness, full of lime, grass, lemongrass and some spicyness. A bit dry, malty aftertaste.

rikstar (1305) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2015 0,33l fles bij AH vandaan. Typisch zuur met wat wijn en vergistende mandarijnen en gist. Niet echt mijn ding.

Yeasty champagne taste. Fairly dry texture. Grassy and fruity aroma. Pretty hoppy for a saison.

Ik ben geen liefhebber van Saison, maar de omschrijving van dit biertje was prachtig. Dus maar eens proberen. Helaas viel het wat tegen qua smaak. Geen uitgesproken smaaksensatie. Ja, ik proef de hop, ik proef citroen, ik proef gist en mout, maar niet uitbundig. Tegenvaller.

Calisky (1627) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 1, 2015
Couleur dorée, petite mousse blanche. Nez sec typique, levures, genevrier, citronnée, notes sureaux. Gout levures, citron, sureaux, genevrier, assez astringent. Saison, c’est pas mon type de bière.
