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.

Found on tap at Maxie’s Southern Comfort restaurant in Milwaukee. What a treat! A perfect mate to the fried oyster po’ boy sandwich. A full-bodied saison that had all sorts of fruity flavors happening. Will have to try bottled version.

A: Nice golden hazy yellow. Big carbonation at first but dissipates quickly. A few minute floaties in there as well. S: Funky and zesty, I love this smell. Almost like a gueze actually, but not nearly as sour. Lemons and brett. T: Just like the smell. Tastes funky and with a blast of lemon and pepper. One of the best summer brews or year round. M: Crisp, carbonated and thin. O: Excellent. One of the best saisons I’ve had and I’ve had a lot. This is worth seeking out.

Big bottle, poured a light golden color with a generous head. Aroma of orange peel and some coriander, slight banana from the yeast possibly. Taste is lite sweetness with some lite bitterness touch. Dry finish. Soft creamy texture. Not a huge fan of the saison style, but this has to be one of my favorites of the style.

cmc619 (501) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2011
2011 vintage. 22 oz. into Estrella Damm tall pint glass (not ideal glassware, but it’s what I have to work with). Hazy gold-orange. Thick, sticky foamy head. Smell of funky yeast and spice. Aroma reveals really pleasant barnyard and fresh citrus (oranges) notes, and some herbs. Lively mouthfeel. Great, layered malt profile, and flavor stays citrusy. Leans towards sweet, but has a bit of a tartness in the finish. Bitterness is very low. Outstanding rendition, superb drinkability. This is sessionable at 6.5%.

On tap. Aroma is peppery and and yeasty. Appearance is hazy straw with a thick white head of foam. Taste is yeasty and peppery, much like the aroma. Medium bodied and fairly quaffable. Interesting little beer.

fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - JUN 10, 2011
A hazy, pale blonde color with a quickly dissipating white head and an aroma that is strongly lemon and yeast. The flavor is mostly lemon and yeast up front with a spicy, peppery finish filling in from the back of the throat. It takes a few seconds for all of the flavors to come through, making it a complex and interesting drink.

Bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of citrus fruit, champagne, spice, and sour fruit. Flavour of citrus, low hops, mainly malt. Mild hops. Average.

Yellow color with lots of particulate floating, small white head and white lacing. Smell of lemon, tart malt and orange. It has a complex flavor of citrus and sour, almost like an artisinal ale. this beer seems to be a more flavorful and complex belgian ale. Do not fruit this beer.
