Bottle 2013 Aroma of slight citrus, sugar, sour smell. Taste is sour to slight spice, yeasty. Carbonation is the best part, constant stream from the bottom of a belgian glass. Good beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 4/13/14, 2012 Bottle, Bottled on 8/22/12
Aroma: It has a really nice Belgian yeast aroma, some citrus, spice, and a some clean malts as well
Appearance: Bright orang pour, somewhat hazed, light, frothy, white head, with a drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of yeast and spice, some citrus notes, and a light bitterness
Palate: It has a decent mouthfeel, with too much carbonation, and a mid-dry yeast/spice finish
Have I really never rated Sofie? I thought this was a more than solid Saison. It has a good Belgian yeast feel, decent spice, and an alright finish. I have enjoyed this beer in the past, and it is surely a good beer.

Nice golden colour with small white head. Smells like pear. Not overly effervescent. Very smooth nice belgian year character, sweet and slightly phenolic. Tasty but prefer some of the other Good Island Belgians.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve had Sofie a few times before and I love it. This time served out of 765ml bottle at a little over a year and a half old.
Aroma- Pilsner malt (buscuit), white pepper, pineapple, lemmon, rotten white grapes
Appearance- Deep hazy yellow golden
Taste- Very different from my first few experiences. Very tart and chardonay and champagne like this time arround. Big dry citrus bite.
Mouthfeel- Very very dry. Creamy and dry at the same time. Really awesome.
Finish- Tart, dry, finishes like a dry white wine

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a bottle pours hazy gold with fluffy white head, aroma is lemon, with wet hay and a little funk. Taste is inline with the smell, some citrusy lemon and bitter orange, honey like malt that finishes with an acidic tartness. Mouthfeel is medium body with high carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml. Pours out a bright yellow color with a large white head. Body is lively, full of carbonation. Smell is malty, citrusy, some wine. Taste is smooth, refreshing when fully chilled but as it warms the citrus and wine notes really come out. Fucking good beer this one is. I don’t care who owns them, this ranks up with DuPont.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really nice saison. Bright yellow pour, with a brilliant white head. Great spicy, citrusy nose, and a slight peppery bite on the tongue. Effervescent mouthfeel. Not exotic or exciting, but a really solid beer.
