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.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 11, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 22oz Bottle. Bottled July 17 2009. Oooh. Cool kaffir-lime like aroma, with a bit of mint and herbal characters. Soft and cool. Flavor is a great amalgam of classic Saison characters. Bright pink peppercorns, tropical fruits edging a touch green and bitter, fresh leafy grasses and a restrained, yet expressive yeast character. Super dry, super fresh-tasting. Finishes on a juicy tangerine note, while spanning a spectrum of wonderful summery flavors. Wonderful!

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 10, 2010
22 oz bottle thanks to Vince. Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with a big pillowy pure white head. Aroma of earthy barnyard yeast, spicy pepper and light wheat. Flavor is very sour and tart up front, the yeast flavors dominate, there are also some bitter hop flavors followed by some very light malt flavors. Light to medium body with very active carbonation and dry tart mouth feel. Very nice beer, full of flavor for it’s light body and abv. Thanks again Vince for another great beer.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2010
Pours fairly hazy pale peach tinted gold with a tall, frothy off white head that has excellent retention and leaves very nice lacing, beautiful brew. Aroma is pepper, grass, earthy wet leaf funk, dried citrus rinds, green wood, hints of cellar and other ligher funky notes. Flavor is sweet citrus and light cereal grain up front, followed by warm spices, black pepper, green wood, thistle flower, ginger, white mulberries, basement funk and there is some vanilla and sweet grass to the finish. Palate is medium bodied with a dry feel throughout and a nice active, but not to sharp and velvety smooth carbonation, very nice.

22 oz bomber received in a trade from leaf from ufck. Drank 3.9.10. Pours a slight hazy, golden yellow that looks beautiful in the glass. Thin layer of creamy, bright white head that lingers for a short time. Smells of hay, grain, orange and a slight lemon zest, with some spicy notes in the background. Taste is magnificent, one of the best saisons I’ve had at this point in my life. The subtle spice flavors are just at the appropriate levels where they’re noticeable, but not controlling the beer. Orange, barnyard, and grassy flavors emerge the further I get into it. Light carbonation gives it a great feel and I definitely had no problem drinking a whole bomber by myself. Would be a great beer for summer afternoons.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear and sparkling light gold with a medium-large, frothy white head. Good head retention with fair lacing. Aroma is light malt with a complex spice bouquet of citrus and pepper, along with some wild yeast character. Faint notes of oak and wine are present later on. Flavor is a delicate marriage of light malt, subdued spicy hops, wild yeast, and spices. Lightly creamy with an effervescent carbonation that finishes dry. Spices, particularly the orange, linger into the finish and then allow the pepper to join the party late. Nice, light bodied, smooth, and refreshing ale.

Pours light yellowish golden with a white head. Has a light lemony aroma with some orange zest. Light flavor with a touch of lemon and a peppery spice with a bit of vanilla.
