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.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2009
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!

Ik ben geen liefhebber van Saison, maar de omschrijving van dit biertje was prachtig. Dus maar eens proberen. Helaas viel het wat tegen qua smaak. Geen uitgesproken smaaksensatie. Ja, ik proef de hop, ik proef citroen, ik proef gist en mout, maar niet uitbundig. Tegenvaller.

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 (798) - 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 (148) - 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.
