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.

Very hazy golden copper pour. Course white head w/ lots of lacing. Lots of bright lemon and spice. Pick up quite a bit of wheat malt. Flavor is very similar. Tastes like a sorachi whet smash. Alright. ---Rated via iPhone

Bottle. I remember having this for the first time at Spuyten in Brooklyn, shortly after it came out, must have been 2009-ish? My favorite beer by Brooklyn. This beer does everything right and is criminally underrated. This beers pours a murky gold, a classic saison appearance. Aroma is Sorachi Ace, some lemon and funk. Taste is passion fruit, lemon, yeast, light peppercorn, and biscuit. A wonderfully complex beer, And this from someone who is not a huge saison fan.

An important beer for me, after having this at PSBH 2013 realised I love sorachi ace hops. Lemon, coconut, creamy smooth, very mild spicy esters from the yeast. Unbelievably good. Had fresh at Brooklyn brewery in 2014 and it was simply amazing.

Bottle from SAQ A: nice citrusy highlights, with fresh herbs, peppery, spicy. App: clear golden with thick lasting white head. Great lacing T/p: med body with light acidic finish. Moderate high carbonation. O: I usually despite 750 ml bottle cause I easily get bored by a beer. Not this time, Im in for a treat. Super drinkable and fun to sniff. Im about to start stirring a risotto, Im in good company.
