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.

Whew this is pretty tasty. Complex aroma of sweet orange and some gentle dry bitterness. The flavour is a heavy blend of citric fruit, funk and dry hoppiness peaking at the finish. Quite heavy palate.

Douberd (3012) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
(Brooklyn Sorachi Ace) Bottle 750 ml corked and caged, from a supermarket in Germany.Served into a teku glass, ABV 7.6% Golden orange colour on the body, slightly hazy, with a tall and thick snow-white head on top. Very good retention, light lacing left on the glass. Aroma has light malts, sugar, nice floral notes, hops, a bit of yeast. Taste is nicely hoppy, light citrus, some yeast, sugar, apricot, light alcohol. Medium body, carbonation on good levels, mildly dry on the palate. Very good and as times passes becomes more and more drinkable.

As I untwisted the cage the bottle exploded open, the cork almost smashing my ceiling light fixture. So this is a lively one, pale gold with big white foam. Aromas of apple, banana, farmhouse yeast, hay, bread. There is spice here which I like. Light sweetness, medium bitter. Dry and crisp, light body, very lively.

Very good luxury beer from the Brooklyn Brewery. Great beer to bring to a poker night.

Habanero (3045) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2015
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, pale golden. Aroma of citrus, lemon grass, a little dill, spicy notes and yeast. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft to average carbonation. An excellent hoppy Saison. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hazy light gold, medium white head. Some yeasty notes, dill and citrus on the nose. Medium bodied, bit dry, overall rather nice. Finishes on farmhouse and dry notes.

nihtila (1394) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2015
Pours slightly hazy golden with big white head. Nose is sweetish, yeast, zest, banana, wheat, spices, grapefruit. Taste is fruity, spicy, still banana and wheat notes, zest, decent body. Also a bit funky. First sip was strange but after that I liked it. Carbonation is nice and gentle, maybe because of the champagne yeast.

Lightly colored, just ok scent with a hint of malt and no hops. Flavor was very yeasty with not as much hop flavor as the description. Not quite the beer I was looking for

From LCBO. Very pale yellow with lively white head that lingered. Lemon and straw aroma. Flavours of lemon and straw with a mild hop bite. Quite nice.

Barnyard funk with grapefruit aroma. Taste is hay and strong grape fruit. Slight sulfur on the aftertaste. Color is hazy yellow with a constant stream of carbonation from the bottom.

There’s a slight hint of lemon, and a bit of spiciness in the aroma, it pours a hazy straw with very large amounts of carbonation and a fluffy white head. The lemon notes come through a bit more in the flavor, with a strange aftertaste along with it. The spice notes are there as well, and it is exceptionally dry. I’m not sure that the Sorachi Ace is a hop that works well with the rest of the Saison notes. It’s not bad, but I’ve had better.
