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.

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.

genius. So great. Tons of layers of enjoyment. Sweet, refreshing. Crisp like champagne. Awesome. Yeasty and citrusy. Pours a hazy yellow. The head dissipates fairly quickly leaving small circles of lace on the surface. I reinforce the tasting not above with the addition of the tartness. Wonderful brew

falco242 (381) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Light color with tart and sweet aroma. Tart flavor with noticeable carbonation but very balanced and a nice citrus finish. Palate leaves me wanting more.

arkurzynski (2268) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Hazy straw gold with plenty of white head. Wonderful aroma of tart citrus, peach/mango/pear, light pinot, vanilla, mild funk, and yeast. Fresh citrus flavor, white wine, and peach. Nice dry finish with lingering tart citrus. Springy carbonation. Clean.

Sour spicy aroma. Similar flavour with some extra lemon sour at the end. Yum yum.

On tap at ckbb. Golden straw pour with slight haze and a monstrous white head. Grassy herbal lemon, wheaty straw, lead to crisp doughy bread and the slightest brett hint. Medium body with ample caressing carbonation, finishing dry.

Blairgus (4182) - California, USA - DEC 30, 2011
30 dec 2011, bottle. Pale yellow, slightly hazy, steady bubbles. Faintly tart, faintly cobwebby farmyard ale. Thin body and a bit fizzy. Very light and refreshing. A tally a quite refreshing beer. I’d say it is more of a saigon, though it has some faint tart notes and is probably fuzzier than a Saison.

Delicious, yeasty, dry, crisp, sparkly. Thick white head that dissipates with abundant lace. Refreshing with a good alcohol content. Cloudy golden appearance. Much carbonation. Just like the description: "A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish".
