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.

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. Theres 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.

alexmate (138) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Slightly cloudy golden colour. Aroma is of lemon, hops, grass, orange peel and that sour farmhouse yeast. Taste is of lemon, orange, slightly sour wheat and a malty finish. Nice beer, but unremarkable. Price Paid: 1 (out of date).

tezarak (121) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - MAR 3, 2017
Poured from a 35,5 cl bottle at home. Hazy orange with floating particles. Bubbly slight off-white head with moderate lacing. Strong yeast aroma (Belgian) with slight fruit and some bubble-gum. Body is medium and texture watery to oily. Quite dry and bitter. Unfortunately I do not enjoy the flavour of Belgian yeast. Otherwise a very nice beer.

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.
