Bottle from Au Grain D’Orge - cloudy pale yellow color, persistant big white head - Monstrous coconuts, pineapple and tropical fruits hops aroma - Coconuts and tropical fruits flavor - light body, medium carbonation, strong bitterness with long dry and bitter finish - really impressive for a low ABV beer, aroma is monstruous, really good.

Encore une Mont Saleve qui déchire ! Collet bien présent sur une robe orange voilée. Les arômes du Sorachi Ace font ressortir les agrumes, citron en tete, et autres fruits frais. L’attaque est vive et l’amertume se fait sentir tout de suite. Malgré le très faible titrage (2.5%) ce n’est pas pour autant de l’eau que l’on a en bouche. Bonne longueur.

Un merveilleux goût de coco citronné en début de dégustation . Dommage que l amertume coupe ce superbe houblon en fin de bouche ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Le houblon sorachi ace est tout simplement magic il développe des arôme d agrumes et de cocos qui rendent les bières extraordinaire. Cette Mont Salève est excellent et le bitter c est pas de la frime, l amertume est très très (presque trop ?) présente. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Head: white, small, bubbly, poor retention. Colour: golden-amber, cloudy. Aroma: strong citrus, pine, raisin, a bit of malt too. Taste: faint citrus, moderate to strong piney bitterness. Great aroma and bitterness. Very pleasant and does not feel too light for its minuscule abv.

popery (1703) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Pours cloudy and beige-ish orange, a light wood tone. It’s opaquely hazy, but there was quite a bit of sediment on the bottom, so that may have contributed. The head puffs up aggressively with each pour, which made filling the glass into a bit of a chore. Tons of lacing and good retention. The aroma is pretty much all Sorachi Ace, a difficult to describe mix of herbal and citrus notes. There’s lemongrass, lemon verbena, lemons, grass, peppercorn and earth, but it’s heaviest on the herbs and not terribly juicy, as far as citrus-y hops go. There’s some fresh barley in the background. The taste is dry and bitter. The bitterness doesn’t knock you over the head, but it’s firm and somewhat sharp, as such beers are wont to be - and by that, I mean low abv beers that are dry and hoppy. Very good hop flavor on the tongue. You really get a nice blast of Sorachi Ace’s lemony herbal notes. There’s also a pleasant background of fresh malt sweetness, though, again, the beer is pretty dry. Mouthfeel starts out quite lively, but once the head dies down enough to drink the beer comfortably, the beer has a certain smoothness. It’s fuller than expected. This beer packs a ton of flavor into 2.5% abv. Great showcase for Sorachi Ace, probably the best that I’ve come across. I would love to have this on local store shelves, and considering it survived some time traveling around Europe and a flight back to San Francisco, I would encourage the brewery to consider distribution here. It’s particularly interesting to see some excellent, non Biere de Garde/Saison work come out of France. I would love to try more from this brewery.

barnyard, resin, hay, golden, cloudy, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, very bitter, light body, medium body, creamy, lively. For the alcohol percentage a really good body. Great beer for a hot summers day.

For such a light beer it has a solid body. Pours a deep cloudy orange with white head that disappeared in a few minutes. Aroma is strong pine. Light bodied and dry as expected from a 2.5% beer. Easy to drink if you like piney hops.

erickok (4340) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2013
Very hazy yellow golden body with off white head. Farmhouse aroma, dry yeast, floral hops, grassy, not bad at all. Taste starts with some cheesy yeast but is mostly bitter. In fact, a bit too much even. Great body to carry it, but it hides the other flavours in this will made beer. Overall not the brewery’s best. Still, great to have this kind of beer in France. (33cl bottle from Abbaye de Saveurs)
