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 great beer in its simplicity. A wonderful fresh, fruity, hop aroma and a very smooth taste. Soft carbonation creates a great mouthfeel.

On tap in a tall tulip. Fine white head. Clings to the glass all the way. Straw yellow with a slight haze. Big tart lemon rind in the nose. Great dry first bite across the palate. Not sure if its the Sorachi, bit there’s a fun funk through the middle. Crisp finish. Great beer!

W aromacie cytrusy, trawa cytrynowa. Barwa złota, mętny, kiepska piana. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Cytrus, trawa cytrynowa. Mocno nasycony, aż szczypie w ustach. Bardzo ciekawy saison.

migwell (80) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2015
Hazy pale yellow brew. Light and quite fizzy, refreshing, yeasty and with a dry finish. The hops are a bit thin, as are the spices. It is what it is, a pretty good hot summer day brew.

From growler into a tulip glass pours cloudy orange with a little head. Earthy smell of hay. Earthy taste a little lemon after taste finely carbonated like a sparkling wine. Not a bad says on especially considering it was 9.99 for a growler

GSH1976 (217) - Delaware, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours a cloudy light gold with minimal head that dissipated quickly. The aroma is difficult to describe since there are some notes I don’t usually smell. I can detect some lemongrass, funk, a little spice and earthiness. Taste is lemon, yeast. The finish is bitter, dry and crisp. Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Interesting.

I can see why Anastasia, of the Beerists says this goes well with any food. Good nose. Hoppy bitterness is well balanced and doesn't build or linger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy medium amber with a long-lasting white head, cobwebs of lace. Taste is lemon citrus and malt right from the beginning that grows through the palate to a finish that is lightly spiced and shot with enough citrus hops to keep things well-in-hand. A solid, palate cleansing, balanced and great tasting brew.

64oz growler into tulip at 45°. Muted cerealy aroma. Hazy light-golden appearance, with a small white head after a fairly aggressive pour. Hoppier taste than I was expecting. Aftertaste of banana and clove. Would have guessed it at ~5%, alcohol is well-disguised. Overall a pleasantly hoppy saison/farmhouse.
