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.

675ml bottle from LCBO. 6.5% alc.vol. pours a clear gold colour with two finger of lasting white head. Aroma of grapefruit and some caramel. Taste matches the aroma. Citrus flavour is pronounced. Light body with lively carbonation. I don’t taste the typical Belgian flavours tho. Excellent farhouse ale.

Sofie is exactly what I expect from a saison. You can immediately taste the spices that you’d expect from a saison, but its finish is so smooth that you know you’re drinking something special.

It pours a light golden with a full white head. It is somewhat hazy and does produces lacing as the head disappears. It has a lemon fruit aroma with moderate spiciness and notes of pepper. There are also aromas of sourness and hints of orange. It’s initial flavor is of high fruit sweetness highlighted by orange and topped with spices including notes of pepper. There are also hints of lemon and tartness. It has a light moderate feel with light bitterness and a dry finish.

Nice Belgium beer, citrus and sweet complexity. Yet this is still a Belgium beer that is not worth buying again

Murrow (93) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours pale straw, very slight haze. Copious, fast-receding white head. Grapefruit and green apple on the nose. Very slight hint of something funky, but not unpleasant. Flavor is sharp, more apple, some citrus. Slight sweetness develops throughout, resolving with a tart, crisp finish. Thin mouthfeel, high carbonation. Refreshing, very pleasing and drinkable.
