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.

Cloudy straw color with a giant fluffy white head that settles slowly to leave thick lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and bubblegum. Flavor has citrus up front, then banana and bubblegum. Slightly sour finish. Reminiscent of a German wheat beer.

22 oz bottle. Some light crackers, citrus fruit cocktail, grapes, and minor spicy funk in the aroma. Nothing too crazy there, but pleasant. The pour was very nice though, with good full, bright white, bubbly foam head that dissipates steadily, a cloudy body, and a mellow golden tangerine color. This was a very easy drinking beer. The medium body started off a bit flat, but livened up through the fruity finish. Orange citrus fruits stand out as far as the flavor profile goes, but other aspects seem to blur together into a slightly sweet, bready, spiced funk clump that almost had some medicinal qualities. I think I really wanted to like this one more than I actually did. Still, it is a pretty decent drink.

Bottle from a trade with FlssmrBrewAlum. Pours hazy hay color with white head. Aromas of citrus, spices, floral hops, bubble gum and wild yeasts. Lots of citrus and wild yeast flavors with some spices. Light to medium body with effervescent carbonation and a dry finish. I’m really liking this one. Thanks Adam.

2009 22oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a rich white foamy head. Nose is flowery and lightly fruity. Very effervescent body. Palate is very tingly and very much alive. Flavors of light grassy and floral hop notes with a toasted biscuit malt that is very pleasant.

Bomber courtesy of tytoanderso – thanks Tyler! Pours clear light yellow with a one finger snow white head. The nose is grass, lemon, peppery yeast and spice. The taste is faint funk, spice, bready yeast and citrus zest. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Tasty stuff – very refreshing.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2010
22 oz – Hazed gold, creamy white head. Lemony oak and white grape aromas warm to soft swirls of yeasty pineapple and funk. Soft peppery orange-lime and herbal wood tones round with a touch of drying grassy funk and yeast from beginning to end. Borders dry white wine territory at times. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Complex and elegant…

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Pours bright gold into a snifter. Bright white micro head with medium retention recedes to skim surface leaving spot lacing. Lemon and brett aromas. Sweet and sour coriander upfront turning to a dry lasting brett finish.
