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.

Wow, what a fabulous beer! Served at proper temperature. Poured with a good sized, white, foamy, frothy head that lasts a while and a bit of lace. Color is a clear medium yellow. Aroma is yeast, fresh hop that smells like weed, malt, grain, fruit and a bit of citrus. Flavor is similar but with the hop tasting only like fresh hop; good pungency which is true to style and a little sweetness in there to balance it all. Body is perfect mouth filling and almost champagne carbonation. Finish is like flavor and short except for the great burps! Wish I had more to make it a session. This is superb!

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2012 Bottle from systembolaget Uddevalla, Sweden. Hazy yellow colour with a white head. Spicy and citric aroma. What a nice and well blended flavour. Moderate sweet, hoppy, citric and notes of some spices

An excellent Saison, perhaps the best American version of its style (Ommegang Hennepin is also great). If you love the Saison style, this is a can’t-miss beer, inferior probably only to the best of Dupont. Highly recommended.

Nice estery notes, some spiciness. Slightly hazy light-medium golg color, with a long lasting, healthy white head. Spicy flavor mixing with wheat malt and medium bitterness. Effervescent. a sweet note in the middle, finishing dry.

I got this from the Growler Bar at Stony Brook Beverage. It was a tasty treat! It poured golden yellow, with a medium white head. The pleasant aroma made me think it was going to give me hoppy bite, but in turn was very mellow malty taste with a hint of lemon and other sweet fruits. Very easy to consume, was a great craft from Garret Oliver!

Love this saison...terrific lemongrass finish. Probably my fav from GABF ’10. Light, foamy head a sure result of the champagne yeast. Crisp, fresh finish with terrific mouthfeel from the carbonation. Happy just thinking about it...
