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.

From the bottle. funky aroma from the yeast, bitter orange and some white grape present. some tart notes on the palate, not overbearing and a little sweetness to balance, slightly vinous. Light carbonation with a soft mouth feel. Dry finish, overall a pleasant beer

DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2012
On tap. Nice hazy yellow color. Little white head. Good light fine carbonation, more dry texture. Nice tart sweet taste. Aroma of spices, interesting (belgian?) yeast, citrus peel. Nice light refreshing saison, a good choice for the summer. Sort of a belgian wit / saison hybrid.

solidfunk (9729) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Pours cloudy blond. Smells yeasty. Agree with the guy before about the white wine - I couldn’t put my finger on it. Has a lot of fruitiness, almost a cider like apple taste. Different feel from the other saisons I’ve had. A little hay in there as well, but the barnyard tastes are pretty absent for a saison. Bottle from Lebanon Health Food Store, NH.

Dorwart (2613) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Decent sized bright white head of fine bubbles that reduces rather quickly. Light and fruity aroma with some lemon and pears, straw and some mild cheddar cheese. Color is a bright medium gold. Wow, what a refreshing beer. Light crisp and very satisfying. The perfect brew to have after standing around out in the sun all day. More light fruit, grains and some dry grass. Light white grape in there also. Very easy drinking. A very, very good light and refreshing summer saison!

2.7
mrohia (283) - Ohio, USA - MAY 31, 2012
On tap at Chappy's in Dayton, OH. On the heels of a barley wine and with spicy food, I just don't taste anything. No head, no lacing, no discernible flavor. I smell slight licorice, but barely. Licorice, citrus taste, but very slight. Wrong time, wrong place for me and this beer. Disappointed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
