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.

ej (789) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy light golden producing a large and fluffy head. Aroma of zezty lemon, hay, grass, hints of tropical fruit and clove. Taste is fairly balanced; a little sweet at first then a mellow bitterness to finish. Citrus, lemonpeel, clove and pepper. Highly drinkable and refreshing. Body is medium to light, co2 levels avg to high and it’s quite lively on the palate.

DiarmaidBHK (3581) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Draft at Brixx Knoxville. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some decent lacing. Solid lemongrass notes on the nose. Crisp and tart on the tongue with a bit of funk on the finish. Interesting interpretation of the style.

A very nice crisp. Pick up hints of the lemongrass and herbal flavors. Sorachi ace very forward and nice. A very solid beer!

Benzai (8999) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle shared by Eline @ Van Moll Brewpub. Lightly hazy yellow to light orange color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma is lightly malts, sorachi ace is clearly present, lightly a hint of yeast. Taste lightly malts, some yeast again, sorachi ace again, a touch of orangepeel, slightly zesty, lightly a soft bitter finish. Decent body and carbonation with that 7.6% ABV pretty well hidden.

tomer (1806) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 22, 2014
At a tasting, thanks Ariel, big almost gushing fluffy stable head, very cloudy palre orange color, aroma of rotten oranges, candid fruit and some spiciness, strong flavor of rotten oranges with hints of fruit and candy, light and a touch coarse bitterness and a light sweetness. Nice but not too interesting.

HKdIPA (300) - 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 (1439) - 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.
