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.

Good example of saison style. For me cooler in creation than in actual outcome. Tart and dry slightly overwhelms other qualities.

Pours a mostly clear light amber color with fizzy off-white head. Light citrus and some vanilla on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little tartness, and very dry.

la description de la bière ne me donnais pas le choix de l’acheter, bon choix, une saison de haute qualité et facile à trouver. Le gout est complexe mais tout en douceur.

On tap at Redwood Cafe. Pours a hazy straw color with a lot of frothy head. Wild yeast flavors but a little sweet. Citrusy.

Brentv (309) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2014
From bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of Belgian yeasts and a touch of citrus. Taste is the same, perfectly sweet, no real hops. Medium mouthfeel and good carbonation. This is a delicious brew.

Tstamba (294) - Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Bomber to a tall pilsner. Pours hazy straw color with frothy white head, good lacing and loads of effervescence... Fruit and spice on the nose, white grape (Chardonnay ?), orange zest and white pepper... The palate is Brett funk, tangy, tart, citrus, white grape and some oakiness. Light and refreshing, great beer!

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with a nice frothy had and great lacing. Aroma is clean, fresh, zesty. You get some good yeast notes definitely some citrus and lemon. Some have said coriander but I would go with more orange and pepper. Flavor is initially bready and pepper. But you get some nice lemon in there as well. There is a slight fruitiness to that citrus zest that goes on with maybe even some wheat. Mouthfeel is sweet and dry. Carbonation is average. This is a great beer.

Clear pale golden color, fluffy white head. Sweet, malty, fruity scent. Phenolic, yeasty taste. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet aftertaste.

On tap. Pours a clear golden color with white lacing. Aroma is Brett, lemons and white wine sweetness. Flavor is funky, with mild lemon sourness, white grape tang, and brettanomyces. Quenching.
