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.

rondphoto (3573) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2016
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- (2015 bottle) Aroma of malt and light sour. Slightly hazy light amber, white head that slowly drops to a cover, bands of lace. Taste is light malt that adds medium carbonation, a spritz of citrus sour, a little orange and, deep in the finish, a little vanilla. Refreshing, light, palate cleansing, super with homemade pizza.

Bottle from the LCBO. 2014 version that I am just getting to. Slightly cloudy pale yellow with a large white head that recedes gradually to a sheet and leaves sparse lace. Nose is orange peel, white wine, lemon, yeast, light honey, pepper, wheat and a good dose of funk. Flavour is medium tart with a light honey sweetness and a moderate pepper. Mouth is slightly thin with prickly carbonation and a very dry finish. Many interesting layers. 8/4-/7+/4-/16-
