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.

355 ml. bottle @ home. Purchased @ Malt Attacks. BBF 06/04/2016. Light hazy pale lemon, ginger golden. Little white head. Nose is that blue cheese Sorachi Ace hop smell that I love so much, intense, spices, lemon, light ginger, touch floral, above everything, intense blue cheese, I love Sorachi Ace so much, this right here is it, damn. Taste is a bit more on the floral side unfortunately & less blue cheese, strong grass & floral bitterness, wine gums, juicy lemon, light ginger, lemon, orange peel, I would love to try a dark version / DIPA version so much of this one, very juicy, light touch of grapefruit, touch cantaloupe, touch of milt almost,… As much as I love this one with a touch more blue cheese this would be just perfect for me. Light sparkling, touch of booze. Almost vaguely reminiscent of Duvel but better for sure. This one I would love to buy all of the time. So close to what I love. This one has been a want of mine for many years & it is better than I expected. Wow, I wish this one was sold in supermarkets here. I was debating between 4.8 & 4.9 for this but it is just so drinkable – I can actually see this becoming a staple if distributed locally which is something I feel very rarely about any beer (we get Brooklyn Lager now so who knows) – it does serve a 4.9/5 as far as I am concerned.

Wow, what a fabulous beer! Served at proper temperature. Poured with a good sized, white, foamy, frothy head that lasts a while and a bit of lace. Color is a clear medium yellow. Aroma is yeast, fresh hop that smells like weed, malt, grain, fruit and a bit of citrus. Flavor is similar but with the hop tasting only like fresh hop; good pungency which is true to style and a little sweetness in there to balance it all. Body is perfect mouth filling and almost champagne carbonation. Finish is like flavor and short except for the great burps! Wish I had more to make it a session. This is superb! cwalexander1 (14) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2011

Another proof positive that American beers are the best in this world! Commercial Brooklyn Brewery, but what a beer! Light hazy lemon colour with the unforgotable taste. Peace of art! paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Great saison! Funky farmhouse beer with a nice straw color, thick white head. Hopped with Sorachi Ace hops, lots of lemon.
