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.

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…

ketchepillar (1054) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Aroma has lots of clove and spicy citrus. Flavor has too much hot alcohol, but some redeeming spice characteristics. Very slight brett b like dryness.

thegreenrooster (3159) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is lots of lemon peel with some clove and mild funk. Flavor is a little toned down with some citrus and spice but not much else. A little corriander is left on the tounge but it finishes kinda watery.

22oz bomber. Pours a cloudy neon yellow with a bright white poofy head that has good retention and lacing. Very little lacing. Aroma is canned pineapple juice, white pepper. Taste is grainy, dry, watery, plain, dull. Wow this really sucks. Slightly oily mouthfeel (but on a saison? yuck). People hate on saison thinking it is not complicated or rich enough, but let me tell you, plenty of breweries get their ass kicked trying to recreate a Belgian farmhouse.
