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.

Draft at Jerrys. Yellow with big, foamy, white head, fine legs / Elegant nose of citrus, straw, biscuit, spice / Medium body, somewhat fat, dry and astringent, lots of bitterness on finish / Flavors of passion fruit, orange peel, lemon, straw, coriander / Excessive bitterness detracts from this otherwise well put together ale.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2013
Draft at Funky Buddha in South Florida. Snifter. Pours a nice hazy yellow with a thick white head. Lacing heavy throughout. The aroma was fruity with banana, spices, lemon and bread. The taste was full of flavor including lemons, bread, lavender, and cloves. The mouth was yeasty with some carbonation and a slight bitter finish. Very good saison and I love the Sorachi Hop.

My first experience with sorachi hop. Very interesting beer . Important and intensive . Flavor fruity , lemon , spice and a lot of hop. Evident high fermetation with complex aromqs of yeast. Full body. I dont like specially because the bitterness is too dry and aggressive. I will wait to drink again.

AndyW68 (1525) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 31, 2013
This is good, but I think overrated. Nearly clear golden pour with huge white head. Aroma is mild floral and hops. Taste is the same with the addition of some bitter.

Pours a hazy light orange with a fizzy white head. Funky barnyard aroma. Citrus, lemon, leather, and horse blanket notes. Dry finish with a high level of carbonation and a crisp sparkling champagne like mouthfeel. Very good saison..

Aroma is lemons, yeast, mild sweetness and bread. The flavor is citrus, lemons, mild/medium sweetness and a mix of slight tartness/mostly smooth throughout in the finish.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle from five bar. Nice light golden pour with a thin white head. Aromas of doughy yeast, banana and lemon funk. Aroma is tamed. But the taste is quite chewy. Chewy lemon zest and banana yeast. All about the cream mouth feel. Very full mouthfeel. Deceiving considering the aroma is pretty tame. This beer actually goes alright. Cheers! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours tans with a bit of frothy white head. Aroma is full of lemon and doughy yeast. Sweet taste with a well rounded wheat and yeast flavor. Finishes crisp and smooth. A great saison
