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.

BeerViking (4712) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Bottle bought in San Francisco. Pours golden with fast-settling head and a very faint haze. Aromas of lemony funk with hints of pineapple and melon. Body is lightly lemony-tart, dry-sweet and dry-grassy bitter, more Bretty farmyard, complex yet clean, almost *too* distinctively Farmhouse, but very tasty.

rayaron (1811) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer&Beyond, Tel Aviv. Hazy yellow with white head. The aroma has lots of flowers, yeasty and perfumed with some funk, spicy. Sourish and bitterish flavor, spicy with lots of flowers, perfumed, citrus, white wine, dry. Medium to full-bodied. Very nice.

Allboutdatbeer (1) - Kentucky, USA - DEC 6, 2016 does not count
Over all, a very satisfactory beer. Isn’t too strong in the alcohol content, allowing more servings to be enjoyed when dining or out within a social atmosphere. Has a nice fruity, sweet like taste and a smooth intake that is astounding. Definitely recommend this one for anyone who wants to take their beverage up a few notches.

La más fina entre las Saisons que he probado. Casi más un champagne que otra cosa. Una table beer en toda regla

tekstr1der (482) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Slightly hazy golden pour with thin cap of white. Aroma hints of lemon, slight funk and maybe a touch of candi sugar. Flavor is similar with some light sour notes of citrus, and a decent malt sweetness. Nothing about this beer is overly dominant. Very tasty and very balanced with a slightly tart finish. One of the best I’ve tried for the style.

Johnstledger8 (1142) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 11, 2016
Draught. Pours a hazy light orange with a bubbly to lacy off white head. Aroma is of pepper, orange, citrus, biscuit. Taste is of orange, lemon, pepper, biscuit, clove. Hard to detect the wine barrel ageing. Oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Clareeses (90) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2017 On draft at AB (yep, judge away). Mild, slightly apricot aroma. Pours clear golden, moderate carbonation just enough to make it crisp. Doughy initially with apple notes but slightly musty finish, which is what takes this beer down a notch for me.

3.8
crispaire (234) - - NOV 5, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Yeast, a bit of farmhouse funk, orange peel, with a hint of citrus. Nice mouthfeel and aftertaste. This would be a great brew for the non-beer drinker or those looking to get into the craft beer world. Not particularly fond of Saisons, but this one tastes fantastic.

thomashall (984) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2016
12oz bottle. Somewhat cloudy golden pour. Aroma is orange peel with some funk. The white pepper really come through in the taste, balances nice with the citrus. Nice dry finish. Really well done.
