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.

Pale yellow-grey pour with a diminishing off-white head and ample lacing. Nose offers a corn-like graininess along with citrus blossoms and light coriander spicing. Flavor reflects the nose and adds a sweet-tart mandarin orange flavor to go along with the smooth, creamy, vanilla-tinged finish. Mouthfeel is full of soft carbonation which marries beautifully with the lightly nuanced and refreshing nature of the brew. As a ’side note’, the bottle artwork is simple but magnificently elegant. Interesting, fun, and worth trying ... like the most demure, polite, and unimposing saison. "Sophie" would be a classy date ... deceptively ’fragile’, with a beautiful mind, and a gorgeous smile.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2010
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy beige/orangey color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of medium-sweet Belgian malt with some notes of orange peel and lightly tart whine wine is quite enticing. Taste is a wonderful mix between some tart notes from the wine barrel with some refreshing notes of Curacao and a nice attenuated Belgian malt backbone. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done overall with good drinkability factor and some good complexity.

Bottle thanks to beerad666 (BA)!
Berliner Weisse appearance with pale yellow-gold body and a soapy white head. Nose is predominately lemon and banana with light orange, overall very clean fruit profile. Flavor is light spice with more lemon and dry yeast, again straightforward, clean and fruity. Thin body with fizzy carbonation.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 16, 2010
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.
