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.

An absolute delight and the epitome of the style. Clean, golden yellow color. Coriander, bananas on the nose. Medium bodied. Taste was sweet, estery, a hair spicy at times with a delicate finish/bubblegum notes.

This is my first rating, and, without a doubt, my favorite beer. (Hence the overall rating of 20.) Sofie has a refreshing, sparkling, semi-sweet taste that is unique and never gets old. I start most evenings with Sofie. Try it, you’ll like it.

Swaroga (1758) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
Butelka75cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor jasnej żółci z odcieniami złota. Przejrzyste o średniej wielkości pianie. NOS : piwo ma bardzo świeży aromat gdzie na pierwszy plan się rzuca morela, białe winogrona i czerwone jabłko. Aromat słodowy jest podobny do słodkiego biszkopta posypanego cukrem. Typowe aromaty brettów nie są intensywne ale wyczuwalne. Reszta aromatów takich jak obora, fenole, trawa jest zdominowane wyżej wymienionymi owocami i biszkoptem. USTA : piwo jest średnio nasycone i puszyste. Ogólnie piwo jest średnio słodkie i winne jak słodsze pół-wytrawne białe wino. Gorzkość jest delikatniejsza niż delikatne uczucie kwaśności w posmaku. Piwo również zostawia ciapkę w ustach o smaku wysuszonego siana i drożdży. ODCZUCIA : smaczne piwo, bardzo przystępne piwo między blondem a saison. Bretty jeszcze nie wykonały niestety swojej roboty ale fajnie się wżeniły w całość. Ogólnie mówiąc piwo jest bez wady ale jak pomyślę, że za cenę tej butelczyny mam trzy rasowe Saisony to prawdopodobnie do tego piwa więcej nie wrócę.

Pours a slightly hazy straw gold with a fairly tall eggshell cap that settles slowly and leaves some nice-looking ropes of foamy lace. Nose involves soft fruit notes of peach and white grape, a subtle funkiness, hearty bread dough, light spice, perhaps a light nuttiness. Lightly sweet, somewhat bitter, a touch tart. Light to medium bodied, creamy, fairly oily, decent action, finishing on the dry side with a lingering fruity toastiness. Not the most dynamic or refreshing saison, but it is delicate and enjoyable.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on my birthday while watching Cubs vs. Sox. I can’t believe I’ve never had this one as it’s been out for forever. Appearance is champagne like, light and dry, bubbly, with a rich head that bubbles away relatively quickly. Aroma of clove, dry yeast, light pepper, light banana, light and good. Taste is more wine like than it is brew like, and I like that. Definitely finishes dry, peppery, feels like there is a lot going on and it melds together very nicely. Great stuff!

Draught. This is a nice tart brew for summer drinking on the porch or with a fish dish.
