Danish: Den japanske humle Sorachi Ace blev udviklet specielt til Sapporo Bryggerierne i slutningen af firserne. Den har en distinkt citrusagtig smag og aroma og er helt sin egen. Sorachi Aced er brygget på pale ale malt, en smule karamelmalt og havreflager. Massivt humlet selvfølgelig, og kun 4,6 % alk. Humlet forår til jer alle!

English. Sorachi Ace was developed for the Japanese Sapporo Breweries in the late eighties. It has a very citrussy and lemony scent and taste.When used in large quantities it may resemble dill. Truly a unique hop that resembles nothing you’ve had before. Anyways, here you have a pale ale brewed on pale malts, a slight addition of caramel malts and oats for the smoothness. Massively hopped of course.
Hops: Sorachi Ace Malts: Pilsner, Caramel

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange/amber with a big creamy egg shell head. Good lacing. Lightly spicy, grassy citrusy hop aroma. A wee bit tart. Has a weird off-note; somewhat barf-like, but not really. Flavour is also a bit spicy, with an orange peel note and and a grape fruit-like bitterness. Tart. The finish is dry and has the same grape fruit bitterness. Lingering light alcohol burn, which is surprising considering the abv. A bit too much carbonation. Overall okay and well-balanced, but the bitterness feels intrusive; guess I’m not really a Sorachi Ace person. 17.08.12.

Pours bright orange with a nice whote head. Smells... hops! Citrus with hints of herbs. Tastes... nothing new, just as it smells only with sweetness and bitterness added into it. Nice ale.

mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2012
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some caramel and fruitiness, citrus - herbal (parsley, dill) hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and dryish flavor, faint caramel, citrus - herbal hoppyness and caramel. Finish is average, malty and dry, lots of sharp herbal hoppyness. Well hopped but in the finish parsley/dill hoppyness gets bit soapy. Not very succesfull Sorachi Ace experiment.
