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.

The best part of this beer was the citrusy grapefruit flavor. There were subtle notes of vanilla that snuck in. Really good, light and refreshing.

Foggy blonde with a white head. Nice, sweet, Belgian aroma. Sweet, yeasty, lightly hopped. Medium to slightly light body. Not terribly unique but drinkable. Thanks to PorterPounder.

Pours a hazy straw holding decent effervescence and showing good retention and lacing properties. The nose is mostly yeasty (but also grainy) with orange peel, nice floral and earthy elements. The taste bold and fresh with the yeast at the frontline giving nice acidity to the brew. Citrusy, floral, a touch resinous with a light grassy finish. Very nice beer to enjoy with light dishes like salads or fish. Cheers!

Nice refreshing beer, a very subdued sour. Kind of lacking anything that makes you go wow, slightly thin mouthfeel.

Bouteille de 765ml. Arôme très agrume. Belle couleur orangée vive et rafraîchissante. En bouche, c’est très acide. Manque d’amertume pour balancer le côté Brett.

Bottled. Pour into a tulip, hazy yellow golden color with a white fluffy head. Aroma is orange, citrus, lemon, banana, wheat, coriander. Flavor is lemon, citrus, orange, sour and funk. Actually really nice. But it is the most sour I’d enjoy.

BeerInHeaven (194) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 6, 2015
pours a murky straw gold with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma is complex. some hay/grass, some spice like coriander, hint of citrus. The taste is refreshing. Slight citrus, but also some warming spice fades in. Quick dry finish with some pleasant alcohol warming on the end. Really a good beer!

Sofie, Sofie, such a good tasty beer named Sofie. Slightly hoppy farm ale, light in color and refreshing in taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours with a foamy head, need to wait a while to pour all. Beautiful color, hazy golden with a lot of head. Smells of citrus, coriander, tastes tart, fresh, like spring. Great beer for a hot day.
