COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a classic saison, a cracklingly dry, hoppy unfiltered golden farmhouse ale, but featuring rare Sorachi Ace hop.Fermented with our special Belgian ale strain, we add Sorachi Ace hops post-fermentation. After 100% bottle re-fermentation with Champagne yeast, the beer emerges with a bright spicy lemon zest aroma. It tastes like sunshine in a glass, and that suits us just fine, especially with seafood dishes and fresh cheeses.

Dacrza (920) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2016
DATE: December 29, 2016... OCCASION: Having finished a monster game of LOTR Risk with Will and Michael, its time to unwind... GLASSWARE: Corsendonk tulip pokal... slightly hazy, uber-active, swirling body of bubbles... head thickens in snowy sheets all around the glass, caking to tall icebergs--looks imperious... body is yellow gold... first hit is a wondrously aromatic cologne-like citrus, with the secondary accents of hay, lemon grass, pepper, leather, and sharp cheddar... complex and alluring.... the first sip is soft, almost soapy, with a lingering presence at its end... light-bodied, champagne-like yet not as bubbly, with a nice arrival at the teeth... in a word or two, unbelievably drinkable at 7.2%... apple, lemon, bubble gum, spicy cheese, subtle funk, some dry white grape, and slight graininess... quite a peaceful way to deliver the goods, with every category exhibiting strength and quality... a win for Brooklyn, and a great start to sampling their box set...

LouisP (365) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2016
Une bire blonde, grande, grande carbonatation et tres bonne effervescence. Au nez, on sent une bonne prsence rsineuse des houblons donnant le ton, ainsi quune levure belge de saison qui impose avec surprise sa prsence. En bouche, on gote normment les levures de saison qui donne un got trs frais cette bire, avec une bonne prsence de citron galement - digne des saisons traditionnelles. Le citron est sans doute ce que lon remarque le plus, apportant un beau ct dagrumes cette saison.

corkyrory66 (1772) - BELGIUM - DEC 11, 2016
Golden farmhouse ale de 7,2 % abv. Mon exemplaire tait 3 ans de sa date limite, puisquil pouvait attendre les annes 17, 18 et 19 entires jusqu janvier 2020 .. cela fait plaisir voir. Couleur dor tendre, un peu citronn, la clart nette. Bulles fines, par milliers, partout, bien vives. Mousse blanche, crmeuse, stable 6 mm. Armes de fruits blancs, malt fin, cnes de houblon, cire dabeille, poudre teint. 1re bouche structure, avec malt fin, pointe menthole fine. Arrire-bouche trs agrable, quilibre. 2me avec fruits et bois blanc mls. Arrire-bouche trs fine, prcise, lamertume fine. 3me avec une fine pointe danis. Arrire-bouche agrable. Longueur un peu moins intressante. Jambes fines, assez collantes. Levure correcte. Alcool bien, mais il ne peut tenir la longueur, ni surtout la finale. Finale faiblarde. CONCLUSION: bire trs agrable, dont on pourrait discuter le classement en "saison". Pour moi elle est plutt une "golden ale" mais quoiquil en soit, elle est largement surcote sur ratebeer ...

tekstr1der (468) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Pours cloudy golden with lasting cap of off-white. Aroma is very lemon/lime citrus rind. Much of this comes through in the flavor as well, though balanced with a dose of crackery malt and some almost melon-like flavors. A bit of peppery spice rounds things out and finishes rather clean and somewhat dry. Different, and nice.

ALIBALI (1440) - Kiel, GERMANY - DEC 3, 2016
Dieser Bruder wurde definitiv gut abgeseift, aber auch der Sorachi Ace zieht abgefahrene Furchen durchs Saisonbeet. Sieht gut aus (trb,matt orange und passend grobporig beschumt) und der Trunk geht ebenfalls ansprechend citrusfresh und gekrutert an den Start. Klasse, blo leider bleibt es nicht auf diesem hohen Niveau, denn schnell verlieren die ppigen Knospenstreichler ihre Wirkung. Trotzdem ganz geil...0,75/11. Bottle from VAN ERP in Groningen.

AntonyWilson (269) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 3, 2016
355ml Bottle: Pours a hazy golden with creamy white head. Aroma of vanilla, citrus and a spiciness. Medium light body with medium to low carbonation. Similar flavours to the aroma, however more fruity and the malt flavours provide a nice balance to the hoppiness. I like the hop bite at the end. Overall a well balanced beer that I enjoyed.
