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.

Pours a cloudy gold with a nice white head. More hoppy than I would expect from a Belgian style beer but overall nice flavor. 12oz botle

Poured into a tulip. 4.5 A: Nearly clear golden straw color. Two and a half fingers of creamy/pillowy white head that retains excellently and leaves tons of pillowy lacing. 4.0 S: Good amount of barnyard straw funkiness. Lemony citrus. Some clove and a pleasant yeasty spiciness. Good aroma overall, but could be more pronounced. 3.5 T: Not as fruity in the taste. Actually, it’s a dry fruitiness if that makes any sense centered around lemon. Unmalted wheat is one of the more pronounced flavors. Straw funkiness again, but not as much as in the nose. Pleasant yeastiness with pepper and a touch of clove. Decently bitter. 3.0 M: Light body. Too light actually, even for a saison and thus could be a bit creamier. Carbonation is very spritzy, but fine. 3.5 D: Good brew. I like a good brett’d beer every once in a while and this one didn’t disappoint. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-19-2009 03:47:43

4oz sample @ Rattle N Hum, New York

Fruity, sour, a bit sweet, proper Belgian styled saison. Pours light yellow, clear. Palate isn’t that great.

Hazy golden color in the glass. Spicy yeast aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, good wild yeast character. Nice to see someone putting effort into a relatively uncommon style.

750ml bottle. Very light in color. Yellow gold with a finger sized foam head. Yeasty and very light. Somewhat of a lemon zest in the aroma and flavor. Does have somewhat of a champagne type flavor to it, made for a nice enjoyable, sipping beer.

Pours a turbid blonde, head is thick lacy and lasts a fairly long time. I am partial to dark looking beers, but this is a very pretty pour. Aroma is that of orange juice, orange peel, and yeast. Tastes of mostly orange, light malts, and nutmeg with a hint of bittering hops. The mouthfeel is nice, thick, good carbonation, definitely adds to the beer. This is a very nice light belgian and I would definitely buy again.

Garito793 (241) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2011 The color is an absolutely gorgeous cloudy gold. I mean really beautiful, almost-jizzed-my-past-while-pouring-it beautiful. Of course, unlike women (or maybe not...), appearance counts for little in comparison to taste and smell. The aroma entices, very sweet, very floral although spruce and caramel also come to mind. With a pleasant but overly potent presence of alcohol, the aftertaste satisfies.

From a 65cl bottle. Pours a yellow color with a small white head. Drank half one day and the rest a couple of days later and amazingly the taste, smell, and even carbonation was the same. Very sharp and crisp. Flavor is spicy, coriander, lemon, with just a touch of fruit sweetness.
