33cl bottle thanks to Papso. Round one! Nice cloudy dark golden appearance. Taste is high bitter and medium sweet. Carbonation is medium. Aroma is nicely fruited and honeyed. This is interesting!

Dejlig svedig humleduft. Sorachi Ace er ret metallisk og fresh men dejlig. Ingen anden duft end humlen selvom flasken er ret gammel. Ret bitter men ikke stikkende. Metallisk.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Bottle at home, courtesy of Scott. Thanks man! Pour is slightly hazy orange with a small white head and good lacing. Big peachy, apricot, pineapple, bretty, lemons and toffee in the aroma. Taste is apricots, fresh caramel, perfume, grassy, vanilla, light lacto, mangos and papaya with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with soft carboantion. This beer has aged beautifully and was such a treat to try.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle, a gift from Mr. Papsø himself, thanks! BB date was 12.2012. Very cloudy brownish-yellow colour, low white head. First a surprisingly fresh hoppy aroma, notes of lemongrass and dill, then some stale malty notes. Intense Sorachi Ace flavour, strong notes of dill, also lemon grass. Bittter finish. I love Sorachi Ace, but wonder if Mr. Papsø and his brewer friends have gone too far here?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, from a trade with Papsoe. A coarse big-bubbled white head, upon an unclear yellow colored body with lots of micro-floaters. Probably past it’s prime this one, considering the level of hop-freshness versus age. Regardless, an inviting aroma of fruity and resinous hops hit the nose, reminiscent of orange marmelade and lemon peel, with some leafy and minty tones. A rich caramel-scented malt aroma is there to balance. Feels full in the mouth. Thick and oily. Sweet flavor. A fine rounded malt-sweetness without any cloying alcohol. Bold bitterness. Clean and crisp. Not much hop flavor left, lemon peel, spices and something herbal is noticeable. Alcohol is very well masked. Sweet rounded, gently warm, lingering bitter finish. Nice all over!

12 oz. bottle directly from the man himself! Thanks Henrik. Best before date 12/12. Oh well... It pours a light orange color with a white head. The aroma is still pretty perfumey with florals, pineapple and coconut. Not sure if the coconut is partly due to oxidation or the SA hops... The flavor is still amazingly somewhat fresh tasting with some tropical fruit, peaches and cream, bitter florals and mild coconut before a strikingly bitter finish. Very interesting beer. Makes me want to try brewing a single hop Sorachi beer myself. Wish I could have had this fresh, but better late than never I guess. Thanks again Henrik!
