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.

panzerwolf (339) - FINLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Its a little bit champagne-y, for sure. Moderate bitterness, a strong taste of oranges and herbs and spices. Very subtle and refined tastes, but maybe just a little bit too sweet for me to fully enjoy.

tricksta_p (4029) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. Aroma is pale malt, slightly funky yeast, tart dried fruits, orange, citrus peel, floral, peppery and soft herbal notes, mild bretty, touch of wood and creamy vanilla. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and fairly tart with a dry finish. Body is medium. Has all the qualities and complexity of a fine Saison.

Bouteille 33cl. Couleur champagne, mousse blanche tnue. Agrumes aux nez et au palais. Armes de vin blanc, banane, poivre par moments. Final trs lgrement houblonn et raffrachissement. Manque mon sens de caractre pour dpasser le stade de "bonne bire".

vulcanmeister (269) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2017
On draft at Goose Island bar at OHare Airport pours a hazy, golden yellow body with a thick white quickly dissipating head, although the lacing persisted. The aroma was wheat, citrus, and fruit. The flavor is citrusy and hops, some yeast and pepper spice. The mouthfeel is light. Finish is dry crisp bready tartness with a long lasting blend of citrus and yeast.

Seguindo o estilo Belgian Farmhouse ale, em sua composio temos um blend com 80% de cerveja fresca e 20% de cerveja envelhecida em barris de vinho com raspas de laranja. Traz agradveis notas ctricas, complementadas com notas picantes de pimenta branca e um aroma selvagem vindo da fermentao com brettanomyces. Junto temos casca de laranja, e um requintado acabamento seco, levemente cido e que remete baunilha. Temos um perfeito equilbrio entre doura e acidez. Sofie produzida com trs tipos de malte e uma discreta lupulagem com amarillo. Antes de ser engarrafada a cerveja descansa trs meses em barris. Resumindo uma bebida bem refrescante e excelente!

Frudel (126) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
Clear Golden/orangish color with a decent head retention. A lot of effervescence inside the liquid. It smells like barnyard, tart wheat, orange. Sparkling bubbles on the tongue, light to medium acidity, pretty dry, the bretts ate every sugars they could, light bitterness, lemon. Very good farmhouse saison, not too much barnyard and leather side its more subtle.
