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.

750 ml. bottle. Served in a snifter. Yeasty aroma hits as soon as the bottle is uncorked. Spicy nose with, as mentioned earlier, heavy yeast. Pours a pale yellow with a three-finger head. Highly carbonated, fruity, crisp, and dry. Saison isn’t one of my favorite styles, but Brooklyn has brewed a nice one. This one ranks up there with Goose Island’s Sophie.

Aroma is nice and fresh, with citrus zest - lemon, farmhouse grass, hay and yeast. Taste is nice also, juicy and sweet. Slightly bitter and with a hint of grassy hops, medium body. Orange, lemon, some pine, slightly tarty, honey

Koelschtrinker (22493) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 5, 2018
Frischer, wenig hopfiger Antrunk. Moderat herb, süffig, etwas langweilig. Naja... 10/8/7/8//7

SinH4 (6909) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2018
Tap. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is dill, cereals, caramel, yeast. Taste is dill, lemongrass, caramel, yeast. Silky mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Solid, but Sorachi Ace stays Sorachi Ace.

AlainG (2439) - Montr�al, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2018
Une mousse tenace recouvre une bière blonde voilée. Un nez poivré et houblonné au début. Ensuite ce sont des levures et des pelures d'agrumes. Puis viennent des effluves florales et d'herbes grasses. La levure est plus prononcée en bouche. Un goût fruité par le melon miel et la papaye font partie du décor. C'est fortement effervescent alors que la texture est soyeuse. Plaisant à boire.

drjoeng (1481) - SINGAPORE - JAN 31, 2018
7.2%ABV. Saison. Poured out light gold. 6ºSRM. Nose had aromas of menthol, mint, citrus oil and hint of lemon zest. Floral character consistent with a spicy perfume with sandalwood and ambergris. Mouthfeel is dry. Palate has flavors of raw bread dough and flour over which are layered minty, hard wood, pepper, hint of sandalwood, incense. Finished dry with woody, spicy flavors. Overall an interesting play on the classic flavors found in a saison augmented by the use of a Japanese aroma hop. Good.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy apricot color topped by a small white head. Doughy, sweet fruity malt nose. Dry, peppery notes upfront. Sharp, bitter hops in middle. Bitter lemon peel and yeasty notes in finish. Crisp dry aftertaste.

Pale golden, hazy. Beautiful fruity aroma, tangerine. Sorachi Ace, definitely. Fairly sweet, a bit sour, fruity, spicy. Bitterness develops to pleasant dryness. An excellent combination. Solid mouthfeel. Excellent. One could get used to this beer very quickly.

3.7
Kavu (5318) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2017
A taste from wiosna (bottle) @ Siilinpesä. Pours hazy golden with a medium head. Aroma is weird fruits with malts. Flavor is sweet and fruity malts with some hops. Strange but good.
