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.

Dieser Bruder wurde definitiv gut abgeseift, aber auch der Sorachi Ace zieht abgefahrene Furchen durchs Saisonbeet. Sieht gut aus (trb,matt orange und passend grobporig beschumt) und der Trunk geht ebenfalls ansprechend citrusfresh und gekrutert an den Start. Klasse, blo leider bleibt es nicht auf diesem hohen Niveau, denn schnell verlieren die ppigen Knospenstreichler ihre Wirkung. Trotzdem ganz geil...0,75/11. Bottle from VAN ERP in Groningen.

355ml Bottle: Pours a hazy golden with creamy white head. Aroma of vanilla, citrus and a spiciness. Medium light body with medium to low carbonation. Similar flavours to the aroma, however more fruity and the malt flavours provide a nice balance to the hoppiness. I like the hop bite at the end. Overall a well balanced beer that I enjoyed.

Aroma is grassy with citrus notes. Really can taste something bitter - not sure if licorice but something gives it a very unique flavor to other saisons. So excited to see this now bottled in a six pack

Bottle from L&T World. Pours a hazy orange with 2 fingers of foam. Light saison yeast nose with big cream cheese and dill notes with a touch of lemon. Nice full body, but not over the top. More dill and cream cheese on the palate. Soft and well-rounded, but good carbonation. Clean and crisp finish with a touch of hay and lemon. Diggin it!

[2016-10-22] The aroma reminds me of sea grabs, which are eaten commonly in the autumn. Salty too.
