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.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2009 draft @ Datz Deli -- Phenomenal aromatics! A tropical cornucopia of pineapple, guava, mango, lemon & tangerine. Super spicy, Herbal & euphoric! I am intoxicated by the aroma…. Saison, Nahhh.... A soft bodied Belgian IPA at it’s best!

mrjez (193) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 27, 2015
Bottle at Brooklyn Parlor, Osaka. L: pours a bright yellow-gold, very hazy, a tiny fizzy head, plenty of lacing with a swirl. S: initially a whiff of lemon and yeast funk. This then gets overtaken by the herbal notes, dill, spice. Unmistakably Sorachi Ace. Personally not a huge fan of the herb aroma, but it settles and balances well with the citrus and yeast funk, which are divine. T: tastes like the nose, herbal with lemon rind, a dash of pine and pineapple. Very barnyard flavour in the spicy finish and hay-like notes. White wine grape. The taste grows on me as my palate settles. F: it’s crisp and dry, nicely spritzy throughout, medium body. O: so glad to finally try this. Hits many right notes, pairs well with a range of foods.

Nice. A bit sweet but nicely aromatic. A bit funky, spicy, some lichees and well hopped. The first brooklyn I feel is really interesting and original.

Beers0mniac (59) - Joensuu, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Hazy yellow color with a foamy and frothy head that stays long. Smell of yeast, hops, fruits and a bit of citrus. Very similar, fruity taste with smooth hops end. Average carbonation. Good balance and very refreshing, excellent

14.11.15-Flasche 0,355L. Gold mit kleiner weisser Krone. Geruch modrig, verfault. Überreife Ananas, Gewürze - irgendwie eigenartig. Sorachi Ace- nicht mein Ding.....

Bottle from giant eagle Pickerington. Nose is citrus and spice. Light bodied and smooth with bit of crisp sharp hop bite. Some off putting raisin and strange spice doused moldy wet cereal flavored ruin it for me. Will leave the rest for tigers to try and see if they like better.

Tap at MDM Michael Mina. Liked this, big bold Sorachi hops, the ABV is well hidden and the beer is refreshing with a big Sorachi hit.

TrefwoordPunk (850) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear yellow to golden with a medium but fading white head and an aroma of banana, grapefruit, lemon, yeast, fresh spices, wet earth, vinegar and hops. The taste is medium sweet with a nice hoppy finish. This is a really nice beer.
