COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons.

Liquide légèrement ambrouillé tirant du blanc ou blond. Arôme typique de bière belge. Côté épicé et fruité. Acidité plaisante en bouche. Plein de subtilité.

tambrico (44) - New York, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a thick foamy head that lasts forever. Aroma mild citrus with some cloves. Floral notes as well. Light to medium body with a lively carbonation. Flavor pretty mild is mild and it works! You can certainly taste the belgian yeast, and the orange peel becomes more apparent towards the finish, and as the beer warms up. Almost reminds me of a white wine in a strange way. Either way, fantastic beer. Would drink again.

tmongoose (1094) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 25, 2014
draft pale hazy yellow color with white head. aroma of mucho bananas, bubble gum and yeast and bread. yet all very light...the flavor is much more of the same. lots of bananas and yeast and light bread...very sweet to the nose and yet mild on the tongue. almost evervescent in flavor...lots of carbonation. I did get a feel for some citrus in the mix yet mild enough and very good.

lesifflebiere (1036) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Gushing léger à l’ouverture. Couleur paille légèrement trouble, avec une mousse blanche cottonneuse et tenace. En nez, arômes de levures sauvages, d’agrumes (surtout du pamplemousse) et de l’acidulé intense. En bouche, sèche et désaltérante, fruitée et complexe, plus du moins qu’annoncée en nez. Excellente saison, assez accessible pour être une bonne introduction au style, mais d’une profondeur intéressante et de qualité suffisante pour le buveur aguerri.

Frothmeister (527) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
765ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a good sized white cap. Aroma is heavy with dry apple cider like notes, light cotton candy, light moscato like notes, light lemon, and paraffin. The taste has floral notes, cider heavy characteristics, noticeable moscato like notes, and light bitterness up front that leads into Belgian yeast, white grape juice, and mineral notes in the finish. Perfect champagne like carbonation. This is excellent stuff. Thumbs up!

Not sure where to begin with this. I had seen this beer once in local paper being reviewed and always wanted to try, even saw it at LCBO for longest time but never pulled the trigger. Well got a bottle to try finally. So, pours a light light cloudy pale yellow, with some carbonation. aroma is citrus, grapes, almost a hint of wine to it. sip is tart, I don’t get vanillla, after taste to it, almost makes me think wine. Interesting but will not buy again.
