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.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy golden yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white fluffy head that reduced down to a medium cap and had excellent sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral and grassy hops and a funky Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple, and a bit of spice. The taste was lightly sweet and rather creamy with a hint of citrus, and a mild fruity ester from the onset, progressing into a mild bitter yeasty taste with a light spicy finish. The flavor stuck around for a little while with the spicy fruity taste left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was light in body with a creamy and slightly dry texture and a mild carbonation. Overall a nice crisp tasting brew with all components working harmoniously together, which did a great job of concealing the somewhat high ABV making this one very enjoyable drinking experience...

Nice light orange color with a big fluffy head on top. Hoppy, hay, slightly orange nose with a trace of coriander. Crisp, refreshing nice taste. Highly carbonated, a bit grenadine in the taste. Fast going .

A wonderful saison beer. I’ve had Sorachi Ace hops in various beers and they always add something interesting. Never have they been better used then in this beer.

Beer to Piraat tulip, pour is a hazy light golden color with a massive white head. Aroma is very citrusy, a bit of barnyard, hay, orange peel. Not very complex but it’s quite strong. Taste carries the aroma notes but adds bread/hay elements. Quite grainy, thought there would be more hop notes, do notice a bit of pickle which is odd but characteristic of the hop. Palate suggests this is just OK, probably should’ve been colder. Co2 looked heavy but wasn’t. Mouthfeel wasn’t as thin or dry as I was expecting but the beer tasted and feels watery. Balanced well and the alcohol is very well concealed. Overall this is OK...the aroma was pretty wowing but this beer left more to be desired.

mgajdaczewa (550) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 5, 2014
W aromacie owocowo, głównie winogrono, kokosowe mleczko, lekkie przyprawy, bardzo elegancki. W smaku wytrawne, musujące, przyprawowa goryczka, posmak białych winogron. Dostojny trunek, choć smakowo niczego nikomu nie urwie.

jksipa (381) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
Slightly cloudy yellow with a huge white head that lingers and clings to the glass. Nose has yeast, hone, lemon zest and other citrus notes, some light toffee and vanilla as well as some coriander and light pepper. Well balanced light sweet front and a medium light tart middle and end with a complex spice throughout. Mouth is medium light with prickly carbonation and finishes dry and crisp. Interesting.

rotaman14 (104) - Potsdam, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2014
75cl bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow, with a huge white head. Interesting aromas of weeds, bubblegum (which I understand comes from the Sorachi Ace hop), banana, lemongrass. Taste: medium sweetness, lightly sour, hints of spices and citrus fruits. It’s got a thick mouthfeel and a short, bitter finish. Very nice.
