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.

On tap, pours hazy gold, good tight white head. Nose is barnyard funk, sharp lemons, astringent citrus and hint of clove. Gets in your sinuses. Sauvignon notes right up front, champagne dryness, hay, orange peel and peppery finish. Nice angle on a saison.

Aroma is sour and tart with citron, some apples and spices. Flavour has rather intensive sourness and tartness with earthy notes, citron, hints of apples, wheat and yeast. Soapy citrus starts to occur at the end of the glass. Refreshing!

I found this at the grocerie store the other day, $9.99, vintage 2010. Pours pale cloudy yellow, kicks up about an inch of white head. The aroma is full of tangy fruit, some citrus. Nice tart fruit flavors, sour cherry and some woody notes. Light mouthfeel with a very lively carbonation. Awesome beer!

Pure golden pour with foamy white head. Orange, pepper, and a slight wine fruity alcohol smell. More wine in the taste, but texture is more like a cider...thin body, tartyness and excellent balanced flavor of alcohol and fruit. Very admirable saison
