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.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Brewed in the USA !!! Courtesy of AFI96..Thanks Waylo. Pours a hazy yellow color with a very small white head. Aroma of sour white grapes, lemon peels and some barnyard funk. Taste is also kind of funky with some mild spices, wheat, yeast and cloves. Mouthfeel has a slight bite on the tongue when you first sip this saison yet it doesn’t finish in the same manner.

guzgorog (969) - FRANCE - JAN 17, 2018
Robe blonde pale, légèrement voilée, fontaines de bulles mais mousse blanche minimale. Nez levures et blé, épices, poivre. Bouche subtile et évolutive avec attaque sur céréale/blé et levure, puis notes poivrées et citronnées. Corps léger, carbo faible, très belle longueur, faible amertume. Belle bière avec des saveurs qui évoluent bien en bouche, belle équilibre.

jinroh (2451) - ESTONIA - JAN 5, 2018
Bottle from Beery Christmas advent calendar. Pours golden yellow, light haze and measured white foam on top. Aroma has lovely farmhouse character, bit of orange, lightly fruity and tropical. Taste displays these funky yeast side notes, light, fruity and full of barnyard. Feels also quite dry, so very drinkable. Light-bodied funky saison, just the way I like them.

On tap at Dive Bar, NYC. Pours cloudy golden with medium white head. Very soft texture, light sourness, just a tad vinous, some citrus lemony note, yeast, sweetish middle. Very balanced. Medium bodied. Good.

m_kennedy (18) - FRANCE - DEC 30, 2017
35,5cl Canette Beery Christmas #16 Mousse : Fine mousse blanche Couleur : Blonde clair limpide Nez : Arome poivré, citron, raisin blanc vineux, levure épicée. Beau bouquet de season avec le raisin en plus. Bouche : Attaque fraiche et fruitée, orangée et poivrée, levure. Ensemble délicat, légèrement vineux et savoureux, le fruité contrastant avec le poivré / raisin tout en restant équilibré. Longueur sur ces saveurs, amertume faible. Avis : Saison Américaine de style Belge viellie en fut de vin blanc. Superbe produit frais, fruité, savoureux, pouvant faire le liens avec le monde du vin blanc.
