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.

Pours a hazy light yellow color with a small white head. Smell is funk, citrus, spice. Taste is as it smells with some light fruity sweetness then ending a bit dry and spicy. Light body with average carbonation level.

(Tap) nice farmhouse aroma. But, super astringent and lots of "farm" taste. I don’t like this one.

Slightly hazy golden yellow pour with large white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, orange peel, yeast and pepper. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, peppery spice, yeast, slight hops. Light bodied, higher carbonation and peppery dry finish.

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.

ajnepple (2394) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - OCT 27, 2014
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.

guil0000 (274) - New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 25, 2014
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.

Atheist_Peace (972) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
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.
