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.

Just a fabulous saison. Not much else to say - subtle citrus and spice, nicely balanced, very tasty.

Pours a hazy gold with a thin head, highly carbonated. Spicy orange peel and pepper yeast aroma. Classic spicy farmhouse yeast taste with orange peel. Slight grit and mostly clean mouthfeel.

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
Cloudy dark yellow. Light white head. Aroma is a little sour, vanilla, and mild funkiness. Flavour is smooth, wheat, slighty chalky, a little sour with hints of wildflower. Tasty and smooth. Elegant for style compared to many.

LinusStick (2854) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2014
I typically shy away from American saisons as I believe itís one style we havenít nailed down yet. This beer proves me wrong. Delicious beer. Aroma was spicy with light malt, orange peel and grass. Pour was a nice cloudy light gold with a two finger white head. Taste was light and delicious. Melon, orange and notes of grass with a slight graininess. Very refreshing. Mild carbonation which was disappointing compared to others in the style

Beachmaster (124) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bomber into a tulip glass. pours a light straw yellow, with a huge white head that lingers, leaving good lacing. Nose is tart citrus. Taste is tart, dry citrus with a hint of pepper and spice. Very refreshing. Medium length finish, with high carbonation. In the style of Belgian saisons, and this is a good one.

Cirrhosis (1208) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2014
Can this be better than the Watemellon Boxer we just started the night with........ only time will tell. Piss gold body with just a thin film floating on top. Lemon grass, zesty, hay.................... sweetness, honey. Taste and aroma are close to the same. This is so drinkable, so very drinkable. Lemon, tangerine, grass, and an acitic finish. Hit gingerale, yes ginger. Yes this beer is better then Watermellon Boxer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2046) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2014
Sample at the Wrigleyfield Goose Island. It is a very pale straw gold with a foamy eggshell white head. The aroma is of white pepper and citrus with funky saison notes that are reminiscent of sweat socks but still somehow remains very light and appetizing. A light zesty body compliments the peppery, green, citrusy saison flavor well. Really nice for summer.

765ml brown bottle. Bottled 25 Jun 14. Pale lemony yellow pour with some haze. White cap that fades into a thin swirl, minimal lacing. Interesting nose, some fruity apple notes, spice/pepper, citrus. Taste has some fruity notes, grass, spice, citrus, trace of sourness sneaking in. Orange peel lingers a bit as well as that fruitiness from before and a good hit of yeast. Good carbonation. Enjoyable, a bit sweeter than expected.

RyanE (145) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2014
Orange yellow pour, with nice frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, orange peel, coriander, some dry grass. Extremely well balanced, touch of sweetness on the tip of the tongue. Complex on the palate and the finish. Citrus, spice, and herbaceous.
