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.

[2908-20100618] 650mL bottle. Spicy citrus juice yeast aroma has great fruit characteristics coming through. Hazy, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sour lemon spicy zest flavour hast bitter tart hints and a nice gentle fruitiness throughout. Medium body. Tasty, nicely balanced with carbonation.

was really excited seeing this, thinking it was Juliet. Oh well, here we go! Hazy yellow with small white head, not much lace. Yeasty spicey cereal aroma--nothing interesting or unexpected. Taste is the same. Meidum to light body on the palate with effervescent carbonation. Overall: all saisons are the same to me, and it just ain’t my style--very 1D IMO. And where the F are the "wild" yeast???

aroma of cloves, grains, and citrus, some fresh cut grass and light wood. cloudy light orange, filmy white head. sweet and spiced in front, with a light bitterness. light-medium body, lively carbonation, wheat-like finish. a bit too sweet, but this is good.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Overrated: this brew is average with decent flavors although it skanks up as it warms. The head is on the spritzy side and the aroma is very mild.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 7, 2010
This is a nifty little/big beer. It’s got some serious spices to it alongside some orangy citrus. A little bit yeasty and sweet. Summarizes the flavors. The aroma is similar to the flavors. The appearance is nice with a nice ibg fluffy head.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle. Pale golden pour, lots of yeasty particles in it (thanks to me shaking them up), fluffy white head. Very bright, lemon and orange citrusy nose with coriander and pepper spice and floral characteristics. Tastes sweeter than I was expecting, as well as very yeasty. Creamy moderate body. Lots of lemon and orange citrus to this, apple/pear, a little tart acidity, dry herbal, coriander, and pepper on the finish. Refreshing and complex.

12 oz. bottle. Light yellow golden pour, slightly cloudy. Good carbonation, medium head that fades to a small persistent one. Aroma is yeasty, some tropical fruit notes, hint of clove. Medium heavy body, good carbonation. Little alcohol prescence. Finishes long and malty, somewhat dry, notes of pears and bananas.

Bright, funky brett nose, lots of golden fruits, light pineapple, touch of peach and some honey. Taste is fairly dry, lightly bitter, some citrus hops, fresh herbs, lots of tart unripe fruits, touch of cotton candy.
