3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Hazy yellow with almost no head. Nose : yeast, coriander, orange peel, pepper, cooked vegetables, delicate saffron and fresh ginger. Sip : oily texture with almost no carbonation. The beer is grainy and soapy. It tastes more like a German wheat brew then a Belgian. Citrusy and spicy. The soapy aromas are in the background from start till the aftertaste. I would wish for some more carbonation.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy straw color with a thin white ring. Aroma of sweet fruits, a bit of spice, coriander, clover, and some lemon. Taste is much like the aroma. Lemongrass, coriander, subtle Sorachi spice, honey, and sweet over ripened citrus. Very light and refreshing. Nice spicy tingle that warms you up all the way down.

Meh...cloudy hay colored yellow with pretty persistent pillowy head, almost like a hefeweizen. Some nice lemongrass on the nose but didn’t work for me overall. Bummer... I love Brooklyn Sorachi Ace but this doesn’t let it shine.

Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki
Pours dark yellow with a foamy head. Aroma of fruits, spices, hints of bubblegum. Taste is fruity and spicy with a touch of yeast, grass and lemony notes. Finish is smooth and mildly fruity with some spices and hops. Probably one of the first Sorachi Ace beers I’ve tried where it actually fits in quite nicely.

30th July 2012
Very hazy gold beer, thin white head. Semi soft palate turning crisper, a little dry. Mild seltzer minerals. Slightly herby lemon, mild spice. Very mild and mellow ginger. Semi dry finish. Nice flavours here but they are a bit wishy washy and could do with more intensity.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, 04/09/2013. Pours hazy golden orange, completely opaque, frothy white head dies to a healthy glaze on the surface, nice, lacing. Aroma is soft, lemon wheat which blends nicely with the sorachi ace, coriander and white pepper. Taste is wheat, sweet lemon overtones, herbal spicy bitter finish. Light palate but still retains some body, very drinkable. Nice now that spring is here.
