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.

Poured into a Brugse Zot glass. Very light colored; transparent yellow. It has a perfect finger and half of white head the held nicely. Smells like cottoncandy and orange. Too faint though. Mild citrus fruit, sour something and seltzer water. The mouthfeel is amazing. It was so soft at first, then a little crisp and bubbly. Really, really nice. It looked and felt good but the smell and taste were really lacking. Easy to drink because it tasted like flavored water. Not really impressed.

2013 bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with lively carbonation and a foamy white head. Aroma is spicy with some vanilla and orange peel. A bit citrusy with some spices and a bit of vanilla in the finish. Somewhat tart. Light bodied with a dry, tart finish. Somewhat nuanced. I enjoyed it.

9 month old bottle from Brooks Place Tavern. Pale orange and hazy appearance with a lacy white head. Aroma of tart fruits, yeast, herbs, floral notes, citrus zest, light peppery spice and light white wine notes. Similar flavor, crisp and smooth with a medium body. Nicely done American saison.

765 ml bottle into wine glass. Belgium style saison, my favourite style. Love this beer. Funk, yeasty, citrus, micro-carbonation, dry finish. Pours straw yellow with big, fluffy white head. Complex taste, tart and bitter and mild spice to start, but mildy sweet finish. Love the balanced funk (Bret). Buy lots and start a vertical.

Pours a clear yellow color with a pretty big white head and lots of carbonation. Nose is lemon, some apple, white wine, sour candy, banana, kind of funky. Sour taste you can definitely feel the citrus lingering in the mouthfeel. Medium body. Pretty good.

765ml? bottle. Light golden pour with a white head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a bit of lace. Fairly funky nose with some apple notes and a certain white wine quality. On the palate there’s an interesting slice note with a more notable wine character. The funk is a little less pronounced and the finish lasts quite a while.

Bottle picked up from Ralphs in Studio City, CA. I am enjoying my last beer for a few months as I start winter triathlon training, so I am very happy I picked this guy up today. Pours a murky golden hue with a medium white head that is mostly diminishing. Lively carbonation as well. Aroma is yeasty with lots of hints of barn yard. I smell some banana and ginger in there as well. Smells like its going to be one refreshing brew! Aroma is yeasty, with a slight tart beginning that fades to spicy middle and end. Light mouthfeel with lively carbonation

Best Saison I have had to date. Big, bold and wonderful notes fo apple, white grapes, lemon, yeast, wheat, floral hops and clean basement. Light and hazy piss yellow with a sexy white topper following the action downward. Tart, lightly funked, bitter up front and sweet but not cloying on the back end. A curious spiciness lingers inviting more suckling upon this mid carbonated and very lightly oily temptress.
