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.

This one is very tart and sweet. There was a lot of head, especially when I first opened the bottle. This one is a bit too tart for my taste.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Golden color, citrusy and nice carbonation. Dry but fruity. Very flavorful saison, as flavorful as you can get before it drops off. Almost like a saison foret ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sofie pours a hazy golden color with a huge fluffy white head. Nice carbonation throughout. Just a good looking pour. The smell is fantastic. Yeasty, funky, spicy, and fruity. Taste is fantastic and refreshing. A good amount of funk from the wild yeasts. White pepper and other spices. Round that out with citrus and lemon. The mouthfeel is slightly sour and tart and has a nice dry feeling to it. Between light and medium bodied

This is a very nice, crisp beer. Orange esthers introduce a slightly bitter/orange finish.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle, Capital Grille. Hazy bright yellow, light and spicy aroma, orange peel and grains. Taste is crisp, light, more orange peel and lemon. Dry finish. "Elegant" comes to mind in describing this. Complex and subtle. Well done for such a light bodied beer.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Great looking beer! Tan-yellow and a bit hazy with a fantastic, thick, fluffy head and very nice lacing. Smells slightly sour, fruity and yeasty, earthy and pungent, spicy. Very nice. Tastes really good, pungent and earthy flavors accented nicely with apple, pear, a touch of oranges, and ample spices. Feel is quite rich and full despite a medium body. Very nice lingering spicy tastes. Lots of carbonation. Pretty dry finish. Drinks great. A terrific beer in every respect.

Bottle to snifter. Pours pale golden yellow with a quick white soapy head that dissipates to a thin collar. Aroma is fruity with a little spice. Taste is more fruit and spice with some yeast and a warming finish. Palate is medium and crisp with a dry warming finish. No complaints on this one.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pours a pale yellow with a big, long lasting white head. Aromas of citrus, grass, leather, and wood. The flavors are medium sourness with hints of some sweetness. The carbonation is fizzy with a light to medium body. Overall a very nice saison. The Brett flavors meld well with the citrus. Great experience!!!

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pear, orange peel, vanilla and white pepper notes. Thin and watery texture. Slightly tart and dry. Not picking up the 20% wine barrel. Needs some carbonation. Good, but not great.
