COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons.

Doughy spicy nose. Hazy straw yellow color, big long lasting head. Sour cotton candy, bitter, tart, rich, good balance. Huge carbonation, medium body, incredibly fresh spicy citrusy finish with nice light funk and alcohol warmth. An outstanding beer. Full, complex, yet approachable, a must try.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2017 De couleur jaune claire avec une fine mousse blanche. Les arômes sont frais et citronés, la saveur est acidulée et rappelle les agrumes. Laissée en bouche on lui découvre une arrière note poivrée.

2016 bottle vintage. Sophie is a delicate wine-like take on a saison. Earthy aroma of must, white pepper, wine and lemon. Crisp and very effervescent with an active carbonation that, along with the peppery hops, lends a prickliness on the tongue. Pale hazy yellow pour with a big frothy white head.

from a bottle during a halloween party. It has a lovely wheaty whiff of apple juice to it and a clear yellow fizz appearance. The taste is slightly funky with a strong belgian yeast overtone ruling it all from on high. It is chuggable and goes well with a karaoke performance of the Prince classic Erotic City. Good for being Calvin, Hobbes, and Susie and singing songs and drinking beers and doing the whole cute thing hell yeah.

Got this one from my neighbours as a nice gathering around supper. Excellent choice, a saison/belgian ale. That's is an automatic win.

hauxe (967) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - OCT 18, 2017
Bottle thanks to wombat23. Gold and hazy with a foamy white head that soon fades. Aroma is green pear, spice, yeast. Taste is tart up front, turning increasingly sweet at the finish. Dry. Hints of citrus, spice and bubblegum linger in the aftertaste. Body is medium with a prickly carbonation. A rewarding brew with a subtle depth that at the same time remains undemanding and refreshing. Good stuff.

A solid, but not outstanding farmhouse ale. Lightly sour, peppery, Notes of lemon. Interesting Yeast profile ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

labeerinthum (1081) - Milano, ITALY - SEP 15, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso riconosce lo speziato e il pepe bianco. L'intensità olfattiva è molto elevata e la continuità olfattiva è apprezzabile. Il cappello di schiuma resiste poco. La grandezza delle bollicine è medio-fine. La carbonazione è bassa. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. La frizzantezza si manifesta sotto forma di bollicine fini. La carbonazione è abbondante, frizzante e vivace. Il colore è giallo spento. Il corpo è strutturato. L'amaro è moderato. L'intensità gustativa è elevata e la costanza gustativa è buona. Il finale è bruschino. Il retrogusto è intenso. L'aroma in bocca riporta sentori di cereali, frutta secca, chiodi di garofano, spezie e pepe bianco.

OnTheTrail (593) - Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2017
Pours slightly hazy yellow, big but quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is big yeast, spicy, banana, white fruit. Taste is fruity, a little tart, yeast, than a blast of sourness. Very creamy full mouthfeel. I get more pepper taste than citrus.
