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.

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!

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.

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

Pours translucent golden with a bubbly white head. Scent is light spices as well as citrus. Taste has the Belgian spiciness with some sweet citrus. Mouthfeel is effervescent, similar to champagne. Quality unique beer.

WVHouseofBeer (1065) - West Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2017
Pours a hazy golden color with surprisingly little head. Aromas bursting with citrus and funk...........but very one-dimensional. Flavors are fairly nice with citrus, mango and other fruit upfront with a mellow and slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied. A solid Saison but not great.

3.5
17Beer (343) - Connecticut, USA - APR 26, 2017
Sour barnyard smells. Pours a golden orange haze with a very big tight white head. Giant lacing. Citrus and apricots and a solid yeast uderbelly. Constant champagne bubbles. Very nice saison.

berkshirejohn (6451) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2017
12oz bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring. A straw coloured pour with a fast fading white head, and high carbonation; aroma of damp straw cut through with white grape juice; soft and creamy in the mouth with a tart fruity taste; and an interesting finish with coriander and white pepper providing warmth. The initial impression is that this is very sour, but the sharp edge wears off leaving a very pleasant beer.
