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.

Draft. Pours golden with a medium white head. Aroma is hay, yeast, and herbs. Flavor is quite complex with spices including coriander and allspice, citrus fruits, yeast, hay, grain, malt, and some pepper with a good earthy taste to it. Light bodied with high carbonation. Very good brew.

jtclockwork (7902) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Pours yellow with white head. Very quick dissipation. No retention. Nose is very strong peel, lemon, citrus, coriander and yeast. Taste if peel, lemon, white pepper, vanilla and light spices. One of the juicier and tastier saisons I’ve ever had. Quite phenomenal drinking. Perfect for sitting out on the porch on a hot day and chasing kids off your front lawn.

A-pours a slightly hazy pale straw color with a thin bubbly white head. S-light toasted biscuity malt up front taken over by yeast and sweetness. lots of yeast, notes of lemon, touch of orange, hint of musky cellar, herbs and some floral soapy notes. T-sweet lemon right up front, lots of wheat and yeast, hint of toasted biscuit, a good bit of floral sopay notes, hints of herbal hops, citrusy orange, and a touch of bitterness in the finish. M-very grainy feel, quite chewy and thick, full bodied and syrupy with a good carbonation and a strong crisp finish. D-this is pretty darn tasty with a good balance of sweet and toasted malt, I really enjoy this and love the thick chewy body.

Nickls (1809) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - JUN 20, 2010
(Old BA rate - bottle) ight greenish-yellow hue; mostly clear; poured with a thinner pure white head. Fresh white grapes; yeasty; a bit tart and sour; bit of earth/wood. A little vinous; green grapes; bit woody; touch of sweeter apples and pears. Medium to thinner; very vibrant and bubbly carbonation. Great stuff here; lightish and dry overall; tasty. Overall, an interesting take on the style and I very much enjoyed this one.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2010
2010-06-18. Hazy pale pastel yellow body with a modest white head. Modest aroma, floral character, grassy, touch of spice. 7+ Flavour is similar, light bitterness throughout, interesting melange of spice and mild herbal notes. 7+ Average palate is very lightly carbonated which make sit feel lighter than it really is. Very very drinkable, but just a touch mild overall. A little bit more of everything would step it up a notch. Enjoyable. Bottle shared by Blankboy

Sampled at American Craft Beer Fest 2010. Pours dark golden. Aroma of doughy malts with the Belgian, spicy yeast. Thick texture, and a nice spiciness to the finish. A good beer.

pours very clear and could easily be mistaken for a pilsner or kolsch from its appearance. However, when you take a sip you are treated to very rich flavors of orange, coriander, straw, and hay, with almost a creamy flavor (not texture) quality that’s hard to describe. Very clean and not bitter in the least. An outstanding brew.
