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.

DoublEE (782) - South Euclid, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Yeasty, rich lemon pie and zest, some lemongrass. Hints of orange and sweet grapefruit. Some pepper. Very prickly but refined hop behaviour. A little tartness balances the modest sweetness. Abv well hidden.

Cloudy whitish yellow. Big creamy head. Typical Belgian white though advertised as saison. Tart lemon. Pasty.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Orange hazy, massive white head. Smells of spices, yeast esters, fruity notes, sorachi hops and the blue cheese i often find when sorachi ace is used. Moderate sweet, quite spicy, super fruity, not easy to identify fruit examples here. Moderate bitter finish, apple peel. Interesting saison, the sorachi ace takes this quite far away from the mainstream saison, and it works remarkably well

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales aged at least a year - I tried this a couple days ago and found that it foams up heavily, but settles to a clear amber. Aroma has some nice lemon notes, which come through in the taste. Nice!

bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Nice estery notes, some spiciness. Slightly hazy light-medium golg color, with a long lasting, healthy white head. Spicy flavor mixing with wheat malt and medium bitterness. Effervescent. a sweet note in the middle, finishing dry.

Keg at Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Dry, yes. Yellow and fizzy, but no head. Nice flavour of that hop what they are used and what the beer be named after. Slight sourness to finish, which it nice. Very refreshment. Yes?

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Not really my favorite from Brooklyn. A typical golden style farmhouse ale, but with a little too much mustiness, basement funk for my taste.

4.2
ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 13, 2013
750ml bottle, cork exploded out of it and frightened the shite out of me. Pale, hazy gold, big pillowy white head. Smashing nose - cinnamon spice, herbs, belgian yeast, must, candi sugar, lemon zest and dried fruits. Classic big saison flavours, really sweet sugary malt and cinnamon. Fizzy carbonation lifts everything, dry in the mouth and nice and light. Tends toward the sour in the finish. Really nice.

3.4
larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
Big offwhite lasting head. Clear yellow body with strong carbonation. Fruity herbal sugary aroma with peppery funky dandelion notes. Sweetish herbal oily sugary taste with peppery funky notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, fizzy mouthfeel, even quite hot. Dryish funky sugary dandelion aftertaste with herbal Belgian yeast notes. Nice, drinkable, interesting, balanced. (0.75l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

4.1
HogTownHarry (6622) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
On draught at Volo. Mostly clear brassy gold with a huge lasting fluffy white head. Aroma and taste - subtle, balanced, great; light pear, some banana, grassy bitterness, tons of wildflower spiciness, a lot going on and not boozy or aggressive at all. Average to light body, a wisp of astringency, decent low-level carbonation and a moderately quick, dry, crisp somewhat bitter and vaguely acidic finish. Great stuff. I am having another, I think.
