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.

Push over Miller High Life. For this is the true Champagne of beers. This is an enormously interesting beer that challenges me. The color of this drink is a foggy whitish yellow, almost like pear juice but is topped with a suddy head. The aroma is a yeasty spice like coriander, orange zest and white wine. The taste starts off with a bit of malt and melon fruitiness but is quickly overtaken by an overwhelming tartness and dryness. As the tartness fades a light vanilla is all that is left in the mouth. A sharp carbonation bites with each sip. But the body is light and even refreshing.

auerbrau (3177) - 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.
