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.

Frothmeister (727) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
750ml bottle that spent slightly more than a year in the cellar. Pours a hazy light gold with a white creamy head that almost looks like it came out of a nitro tap. On the nose, an amazing floral lychee fruit note with black pepper, some citrusy/resinous undertones, and some light Belgian Triple-esque wet concrete notes...but wow, that lychee!!! As for taste the lychee notes are RIGHT THERE, with light sweetness, and then lighter notes of black pepper, wet concrete, a tiny hint of fresh dill, and some light tropical fruit notes that fades out into spicier, yeast heavier notes with lots of citrus in the finish. This is a totally unique beer (which may be from the year in the cellar), with a flavour profile I have yet to encounter. I love it! I would 100% buy it again.

Vestergaard (1696) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2016
On tap at City Tap House. Pours a clear golden with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has coconut, wheaty malts, light spicy yeast, light honey. Taste has more minty dill spice, sweet malty wheat and a light bitterness. High carbonation and a slight oily body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dambor (397) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2016
Pours light yellow with medium head. Aroma: very interesting aroma of sorachi ace hops (coconut?) coupled with citrus. Taste: the coconut taste is also present, some biscuits and a nice hoppy aftertaste. Very original and super drinkable

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Very bubbly light straw color with a popcorn colored, lasting/regenerating head. Pale malts, citric blossoms, eucalyptus, passion fruit and other tropical and exotic spices. Quite sweet, with wheat and light caramel in the front. Very light and airy on the palate. Interesting mix of citrus, pine and spice. Light bitter and acidic mingle. A saison with wit tendencies. 8/10

Raistlin (295) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
Yellow, hazy, very thin head, low carbonation, loads of powdery sediments floating around. Aroma is grassy, floral and spicy. Mouth feel is bitter and carbonated, long bitter after taste. Flavours are spice, lime zest, grass and loads of SA hops.

flatmatt (1466) - Northville, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2016
12 oz bottle, best by September 2016. Pours golden, filled with fine to medium particles, and a white head. Aroma is skunked at first, but then more of a lemony citrus, wild mint. Pale malty flavor mixing with pear, herbal flavors (like that wild mint), white grape, with a touch of the skunkiness still hanging in there. Pretty good other than the problems caused by the age/storage (skunking and appearance). I think I would really like a fresh bottle were one to be found.
