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.

Great lacing on the glass. Fine fruity aroma. Fantastic velvety mouth-feel that goes down smoothly. Complex tastes between spices and fruits.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2014 Pours the color of golden straw with a bubbly white head. Loads of carbonation, as the bubbles just keep coming. The smell may be my favorite thing about this beer. Yeast, grape, a bit of wood and brett. Light mouth with a crisp fizz. At first taste, I wasn’t terribly impressed. But as it warms - and I mean really warms - the flavor really pops.

Bottle 2013 Aroma of slight citrus, sugar, sour smell. Taste is sour to slight spice, yeasty. Carbonation is the best part, constant stream from the bottom of a belgian glass. Good beer!

Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 4/13/14, 2012 Bottle, Bottled on 8/22/12

Aroma: It has a really nice Belgian yeast aroma, some citrus, spice, and a some clean malts as well
Appearance: Bright orang pour, somewhat hazed, light, frothy, white head, with a drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of yeast and spice, some citrus notes, and a light bitterness
Palate: It has a decent mouthfeel, with too much carbonation, and a mid-dry yeast/spice finish
Overall Impression: Have I really never rated Sofie? I thought this was a more than solid Saison. It has a good Belgian yeast feel, decent spice, and an alright finish. I have enjoyed this beer in the past, and it is surely a good beer.
