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.

The Sorachi Ace Saison was poured into, appropriately, some Brooklyn Brewery snifters that just happened to be sitting out in the kitchen. The golden amber, slightly hazy liquid is topped by a fluffy white head. The color was warm and rich. The aroma had a bit of yeastiness to it, along with fruit and a touch of lemon zest. The flavor is mildly spicy, with hints of white pepper. There’s a distinct lemon zest flavor, not sour, over a substantive malt base. The finish is quite dry with lingering bitterness. The beer has less of the "funkiness" of a typical Saison, and comes across relatively mild. It maintained its flavor as it warmed over discussions of life and politics.

Bottle. Pale gold in colour, with a decently-sized, white, head. Light grains, floral hops yeasty, stone fruits, a touch of lemon sharpness, leading to a dryish finish. Good.

Very nice farm house ale, pleasant malty body with a lot of complex flavours in the body. The sorachi hops have a presence but are a bit mild. A very good well balanced beer. Not a mind blower for me but a solid brew.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2017 On tap at ITAP Xroads Aroma 9/10: very bright aroma with lemon on the forefront. Appearance 4/5: bright gold color with a sticky white head. Palate 4/5: Solid carbonation and relatively dry finish. Taste 9/10: Fantastic blend of yeasty goodness and bright citrus flavors. Not really traditional, but I dig it. Overall 18/20: Far from a traditional saison, but an excellent beer all the same. 4.4

Pours hazy hazy gold with a short bubbly white head. Aroma is grassy, lemon, yeast ester. Sparkly mouthfeel and a taste that follows the aroma but with a balanced hoppy bitterness and a semi sweet linger. A bit of funk throughout. I am not a big saison drinker, but this is a good one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alc : 7,2% -- Léger col de mousse blanche, bière jaune légèrement troublée, nombreuses fines bulles, Arôme fruité, ananas, mangue, un bonheur! A la première gorgée c'est l'explosion au palais, du fruité, là aussi mangue, ananas, un régal. Une pointe d'amertume et une longueur sur le palais, c'est une très belle réalisation de Brooklyn. Je recommande d'essayer cette saison! -- 355ml Monoprix

Pours a hazy orange with a finger of white head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, and herbal hop notes. Mouth feel is medium-thin, with a crisp, watery-edge to it.
