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.

2010 bottle from EricAndersNavy, thanks! Pale blonde, hazy. Oaky aroma with orange peel and leathery notes. Initial mal, yet very dry. A soft oak character with leather and orange peel. Anis. Brett even. Delicious with some complexity.

When I tasted this for the first - and second time I wasnít sure but I thought it was possibly a Belgium Strong Ale. I would never thought it was a saison. Iím not a big fan of saison but this is really delicious. I usually find a bit of a grassy taste almost like a wheat beer but this is great. Crisp slightly malty noticable hops. A really nice beer

22 oz. bomber. Poured a light orangish color with a white head. Crisp and refreshing. Very drinkable. not as tart as I would prefer but all around a nice belgian style beer.

beerdad (397) - Kansas, USA - FEB 6, 2011
bottled. pours light golden color with a large tight white head. aromas of citrus, grass and hay. moderately sour and fizzy with a load of carbonation. it is light bodied with a lasting finish of citrus and yeast. only complaint is an odd flavor i canít place after the flavors wear off the tongue. decent, but not great.

Nice stuff but slightly unusual. A little sour and a little spicy. Almost a dryness to the taste. Serving: Bottle

A nice golden pour with a thin white head. Smell of yeast, a little citrus, maybe banana? Good flavor of yeast, banana, and spices. Smooth finish, really nice saison! Would definitely drink again!

Wow recent ratings for this are all over the place. It is a pretty drinkable refreshing saison but nothing to warrant the rating swill crap. Pours a cloudy yellow. Grassy herbal earthiness running through the whole thing like fresh cut grass on a spring day. Not sure if it is appropriate for the freezing ass weather going on outside but whoís watching. A funky musty sort of aroma. Pretty effervescent texture and mouth feel as well. Pretty entertaining beer her and a pretty entertaining example of this style. Getting a little more complex and interesting than what I am used to.

a white golden cloudy mess of a beer that is yeasty and wheaty. flavor of wheat and coriander and funky like infected wheat, but sweet. brought to you by the dirty lines @ r& h nyc.

Sampled at the Black Hills Beer Fest. Hazy yellow color. Very unique taste but all in all it was nothing special. Iím glad I didnít piss any money away for a bottle of this. Has nothing on the bourbon stout.

Very hazy golden pour, lots of yeast in suspension, large fluffy white head, good retention. Aroma is pear, floral, champagne, butterscotch comes out as the beer warms. Medium light body, brief tingly carbonation, sweet up front that slowly fades to a mildly dry finish. Good one!
