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.

Bottle. A- Citrus, spices. A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Yeasty, citrus, spices, grapes. P- Medium body, average texture, high carbonation, skunky finish. O- The wild yeast and wine barrel aged makes this interesting to say the least. The flavors were very odd.

Small bottle from Elizabeth Station. Bottled on 2016-06-02. Slightly hazy blonde with a white head. Aroma is slightly flowery and earthy, typical for Belgian Saisons. Taste is similar. Pleasant and refreshing. Good stuff.

Cajun (534) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle (2017) - Pours a hazy gold, peach tint, white head. Aroma of that great Belgian yeast (cloves, bubblegum, banana), fruity and floral, dry wine-like, light bread, hops end. Very good Saison.

FinnIckler (479) - GERMANY - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle from saveure-biere. Bottled on 29.09.2016. Pours hazy orange, very short lasting head. Nose is super fruity, orange peel and citrus peel, with a sourness almost like a sour wild ale or a gueze. Palate is tart and lemon zest, orange, hoppy finish. Awesome Belgian Saison!

StevieT (2013) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2017
On tap at GABS 2017. A dry finish, hints of hay amongst the funk, very drinkable and refreshing.

Itzjerm (2866) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2017
2013 bottle which added amazing body with the age. Really this is an amazing. Beligian saison. The saison is muted as is the wine barrel. But you can detect the smoothness a wine barrel will add. Nose is light fruitiness and rose water. Body is medium. Very nice lasting head. Wow! May be inbev... but with some age amazing!

chicagobears (473) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2017
2015 bottling. Carbonated pour into Duvel snifter. Very yeasty aroma. Kinda dank and fruity. Sour taste that lingers and a lot of vanilla. Very estery and mildly spicy. Not quite on par with the best Saison but has an interesting taste for being aged for a couple years.

agl108 (1241) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2017
On draft at Old Burdicks. Poured hazy gold with very thin head. Lemon, pepper. Dry finish. Enjoyable.

3.2
MarcoBasile (420) - DENMARK - MAY 31, 2017
2016 vintage. Aroma is tart and funky. Hay, wet grass. It pours a slightly murky light orange body with little head. Taste is funky with notes of yeast. Again, hay and a little tartness. Watery body with medium carbonation
