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.

TET (2954) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2013
A golden and lively beer, a head is big, lasting, slightly cloud and blond. The nose is aromatic, fruitfull, mandarin, citrusfruits, fructose and exoticness of Sorachi. Taste of fruits, lemon and lemon zest, spices and herbs. Now the Sorachi is clearly on the stage, first time when I find a dill. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonation, that fitts nicely into sophisticated habitus, the drinkability is fresh. Quite straightforward but still interesting beer, nevertheless, even the big bottle can hold the interest.

notalush (5856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle - quite a lovely-looking beer - hazy gold, very lively with a huge, thick, lasting frothy head - nose of pepper, lemon, pineapple, mango, honey, vanilla - medium sweet, but with a quenching acidity to it - complex tropical flavors, some vanilla, and even a hint of coconut - some honey, peppered mango, pineapple - medium dry, moderately bitter finish - interesting and tasty beer.

Pours ever so slightly cloudy. Spicy, peppercorns, lemon, citrus, dry perhaps not so dry as you would expect. I loved it

9/30/2010. 750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Aromas of citrus, Belgian yeast, grass and hops. A little tart with yeast, spices and lemony flavors. Excellent!

Minderbinder (3469) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle 750ml. Pour hazy blond with low white head. Aroma is of fruits (estery), slight garbage juice, citrus. Taste is of fruits, citrus, honey. Palate: Light-medium body. Overall: Good. I dont believe the bottle was in very good shape. Not an outstanding saison at all. Still enjoyable but was waiting for more...

tom10101 (5966) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Clear golden with a medium mostly lasting white head and good lacing. Aroma is yeasty with orange/citrus, bubblegum and herbal notes. Taste is of slightly sweet and quite fruity (mostly citrus) along with floral notes and bubblegum again. Medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Well crafted, but not my favorite Saison. Maybe my bottle was too old or I just dont like Sorachi Ace hops.

Slowbeer ontap (29-Nov-13) Spicy savoury citrus lemonade aroma. Yellow amber colour, good head and fluffy lacing. Lemonade spicy savoury herbal flavour. Big savoury herbal lemon finish that pulls thru to the aftertaste.

StephBoisvert (4) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2013 does not count
Lemon and green tea aroma. Nice head size when pouring but does not last long leaving a small ring. Color is a yellow haze.Taste is dry with a medium bitterness that stays long in the back. Medium body with low carbonation. A long bitterness with a bad feeling. I like the aroma of the Sorachi Ace hop but not the taste of the bitterness. Ok beer but not enough for a second try. ;-(

Seeing this bottle gives me high expectations. Unfortunately, it doesn't meet these expectations. "Thin" and "spineless". Quite dull. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice and clean beer. Beautiful color and a citric smell. Pours nicely in the glas. A recomended beer!
