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.

tambrico (50) - New York, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a thick foamy head that lasts forever. Aroma mild citrus with some cloves. Floral notes as well. Light to medium body with a lively carbonation. Flavor pretty mild is mild and it works! You can certainly taste the belgian yeast, and the orange peel becomes more apparent towards the finish, and as the beer warms up. Almost reminds me of a white wine in a strange way. Either way, fantastic beer. Would drink again.

Smooth aroma, very soft on the palate. The hops and the yeast were mild, fruity flavors and a flowery profile. Would definitely drink this again.

Draught. Pours a hazy light orange with a bubbly to lacy off white head. Aroma is of pepper, orange, citrus, biscuit. Taste is of orange, lemon, pepper, biscuit, clove. Hard to detect the wine barrel ageing. Oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Clareeses (39) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2016
Mild, slightly apricot aroma. Pours clear golden, moderate carbonation just enough to make it crisp. Doughy initially with apple notes but slightly musty finish, which is what takes this beer down a notch for me.

crispaire (96) - - NOV 5, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Yeast, a bit of farmhouse funk, orange peel, with a hint of citrus. Nice mouthfeel and aftertaste. This would be a great brew for the non-beer drinker or those looking to get into the craft beer world. Not particularly fond of Saisons, but this one tastes fantastic.

12oz bottle. Somewhat cloudy golden pour. Aroma is orange peel with some funk. The white pepper really come through in the taste, balances nice with the citrus. Nice dry finish. Really well done.

Satyroneto (330) - BRAZIL - OCT 20, 2016
Cor amarelo palha, brilhante e levemente turva; espuma branca de baixas formação e persistência com pouco lacing. Aroma ricamente picante com leve cítrico de limão em segundo plano. Sabor picante com notas cítricas (limão e abacaxi) e leve dulçor de baunilha; retrogosto apimentado. Corpo leve e alta carbonatação. Alta drinkability, conjunto muito interessante.

Cerveza color ámbar turbio. Con aromas cítricos a Lima, y cáscara de naranja. Al paladar se perciben notas cítricas intensas con toque de naranja y al final con un ligero sabor a fermentación que perdura. Cerveza agradable y fresca. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

De geur is lekker fruitig. De kleur troebelblond met een mooie schuimkraag. De smaak is ook lichtfruitig, maar het hinderd niet. Een goed biertje.

jc1762 (948) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 10, 2016
Bottle poured into a pilsner showing well filtered neon yellow with half a finger of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of clean lemon zest, orange peel, and sweet bready malts. The palate is medium bodied and well carbonated. Moderately tart with flavors of light lemon and hints of orange. Light Belgian yeast influence apparent throughout. Excellent example of a saison.
