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.

Pours translucent golden with a bubbly white head. Scent is light spices as well as citrus. Taste has the Belgian spiciness with some sweet citrus. Mouthfeel is effervescent, similar to champagne. Quality unique beer.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2017 Very good for a saison, but I'm only in the mood for a saison when the time is right

WVHouseofBeer (1081) - West Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2017
Pours a hazy golden color with surprisingly little head. Aromas bursting with citrus and funk...........but very one-dimensional. Flavors are fairly nice with citrus, mango and other fruit upfront with a mellow and slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied. A solid Saison but not great.

Sour barnyard smells. Pours a golden orange haze with a very big tight white head. Giant lacing. Citrus and apricots and a solid yeast uderbelly. Constant champagne bubbles. Very nice saison.

berkshirejohn (6614) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2017
12oz bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A straw coloured pour with a fast fading white head, and high carbonation; aroma of damp straw cut through with white grape juice; soft and creamy in the mouth with a tart fruity taste; and an interesting finish with coriander and white pepper providing warmth. The initial impression is that this is very sour, but the sharp edge wears off leaving a very pleasant beer.

Carlisle (787) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours gold with thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of citrus (orange and grapefruit) with pepper notes. Orange citrus with pepper notes. Crisp, effervescent finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
