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.

2013 edition. Fruity sweet aroma. Pours clear straw with lots of rising bubbles. Sweet flavors with a bit of woodsiness at the end.

Shag (2598) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Murky yellow with a white head. Aroma contains some lemons, spices, and white grapes. The flavor is sour and tart with a strong citrus flavor. The aftertaste is very tart and sour more so than most saisons. Overall a good beer.

Alpha10 (320) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
2014/06/01 - Pours a translucent, golden/honey colour with a soapy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is yeast, citrus, orange, funk and mild vanilla. Taste is yeast, Brett funk and tangy orange/citrus with white wine, oak and peppery notes. Mouthfeel is light, with effervescent carbonation and a refreshing, drying finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

milara (45) - Ste-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
Une bière complexe, très fruité et facile à boire. Il faut que je ré-essaye et en garde une dans la cave pour plus tard.

fishonmyplane (422) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 30, 2014
A light, refreshing take on a saison. The aroma is heavy on the fruit and yeast, very inviting. The flavor is all over the place, but still quite good. Dry champagne mixed with orange, yeast, and a little funk. Low ABV and light on the spice notes for the style.

leybrown (1) - - MAY 30, 2014 does not count
Good example of saison style. For me cooler in creation than in actual outcome. Tart and dry slightly overwhelms other qualities.

TXBadger (1336) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
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.

desrochesb (40) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
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.

Bule (732) - California, USA - MAY 25, 2014
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 (327) - 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.
