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.

Beautiful dark amber color. Memorable for the weirdness in aroma and taste that I related to burnt electronics.

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.

HammerTroll (792) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 27, 2015
Hazy to cloudy yellow color, minimal white head. Yeast and sourish aroma, some coconut, wheat and grain. Coconut taste, sweet and sour. Thin body, watery, soft carbonation. Extremely tasty, too bad for its wateriness. This is only second beer with Sorachi Ace I’ve tried, and both had coconut aroma/taste. I must say I’m a big fan of Sorachi already. //stellabeer2go

SkillsFactory (147) - ITALY - JUN 25, 2015
Dorata chiara, leggermente velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aroma acre, limone, aneto, floreale ed erbaceo. Al palato parte dolce, quasi acida, per poi passare esponenzialmente ad un amaro citrico ed erbaceo. Corpo tra medio e medio-leggero, ben carbonata.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2015
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Bruges. Aroma has grass, dill, some fruity tones and peaches. Flavour has grass, dill, menthol, some plastic vibes and . Finishes with menthol. A bit too foamy palate. Nope, Sorachi Ace is still Sorachi Ace even when it is done by Brooklyn. No signs of saison here.

skmikeg (1275) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Pours hazy golden with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of lemon balm, tropical fruits, light biscuit malts, some mustiness, some black pepper, ripe fruits, light barnyard funk, and some wet hay. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma with some mild hop bitterness in the finish. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a dry, semi bitter, medium-long, refreshing finish. Overall, a tasty, refreshing, slightly more hoppier then normal for the style, saison that would be very nice on a hot summer day.

tillmac62 (403) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2015
BBD 8/15. Pours a semi-cloudy gold. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Nice nose of light lemon or lemongrass with a subtle yeast character. Light medium body with a texture that has creamy aspects. Superbly well carbonated with nice effervescence from the middle on. The outstanding profile is intense, somewhat complex and is hop and saison flavor forward rather than balanced. It begins with a lemon like flavor that flows into the spicy Sorachi hop. A very subtle mild bitterness emerges in the middle over a weak biscuit character. From the middle on, the slightly funky farmhouse character dominates. The dry finish lingers with a receding lemon flavor over farmhouse funk.
