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.

bottled. pours light golden color with a large tight white head. aromas of citrus, grass and hay. moderately sour and fizzy with a load of carbonation. it is light bodied with a lasting finish of citrus and yeast. only complaint is an odd flavor i cant place after the flavors wear off the tongue. decent, but not great.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Nice stuff but slightly unusual. A little sour and a little spicy. Almost a dryness to the taste. Serving: Bottle

A nice golden pour with a thin white head. Smell of yeast, a little citrus, maybe banana? Good flavor of yeast, banana, and spices. Smooth finish, really nice saison! Would definitely drink again!

Wow recent ratings for this are all over the place. It is a pretty drinkable refreshing saison but nothing to warrant the rating swill crap. Pours a cloudy yellow. Grassy herbal earthiness running through the whole thing like fresh cut grass on a spring day. Not sure if it is appropriate for the freezing ass weather going on outside but whos watching. A funky musty sort of aroma. Pretty effervescent texture and mouth feel as well. Pretty entertaining beer her and a pretty entertaining example of this style. Getting a little more complex and interesting than what I am used to.

Sampled at the Black Hills Beer Fest. Hazy yellow color. Very unique taste but all in all it was nothing special. Im glad I didnt piss any money away for a bottle of this. Has nothing on the bourbon stout.

Very hazy golden pour, lots of yeast in suspension, large fluffy white head, good retention. Aroma is pear, floral, champagne, butterscotch comes out as the beer warms. Medium light body, brief tingly carbonation, sweet up front that slowly fades to a mildly dry finish. Good one!

Ron (3813) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Since we did not want to pay the cover at Lovin cup, we were only allowed to stay for one beer. We then went to McGregs were I found this one I never had before. Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow beer with a large white head. The aroma is malt, fruit and yeast. The flavor is malt, fruit, yeast and some sweetness. The palate is sweet. The distinctly Euro aftertaste I did not enjoy.

wilnatp (689) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Very light in yellow/gold pour. Yeasty and very light and refreshing. Lemon zest in the aroma. Flavor is clove, banana, a bit sour. Almost a champagne flavor and palate. Great as a sipping beer.

22 oz. bottle from Woodmans in Madison, WI (bottled June 18, 2010). Pours pale yellow to light orange with a bubbly champagne-like head. Aroma of orange zest, peppercorns, and pinot grigio. Wonderfully refreshing flavor with citrus at the forefront but with funky and spicy notes on the finish and just enough sweetness to balance it all out. Exactly what a saison should be.
