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.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
4 year vertical ’9-’12, Pours clear straw golden in color with with an off white head. The aroma brings sweet spring fresh floral notes, but not hops as much as the saison yeast brings a grassy meadow style. The body is quite bubbly like champagne, as described, and not as dry as I expected. The wine comes out stronger with the fresh batches, sweet grapes ending nicely with citrus orange notes as well settling on the tongue. So refreshing and delicious!

DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellowish color with a one inch head that falls apart quickly. Some mild lace sticks to the glass. Barnyard funk with honey and citrus notes. Belgian yeast dominates the nose. Starts off with subdued bitterness and a playful saison yeast and finishes a little tart. Picking up more lemon and straw upfront with a lingering green apple skin sweetness that’s equally tart. Elegant usage of spice notes from coriander to clove to white pepper. Light juicy apricot note. Chalky yeast finish with some caking. Enormous complexity as there are fruit and yeast components I can’t quite pin down. Light and airy in the mouth, smooth and drinkable, mild citrus/floral aftertaste, not drying or overpowering on the palate. A subtle, and yet complex saison, definitely seems to have mellowed out with age, smooth and mild.

Hazy pale gold beer. Short lived white head. Light palate, crisp and semi dry. Delightfully light malt. Tiny bit of sourness. Shandy like lemonade with elderflower. Finishes soft and semi dry. A lovely light saison.

From the bottle. funky aroma from the yeast, bitter orange and some white grape present. some tart notes on the palate, not overbearing and a little sweetness to balance, slightly vinous. Light carbonation with a soft mouth feel. Dry finish, overall a pleasant beer
