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.

Brentv (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 21, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2014 From bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of Belgian yeasts and a touch of citrus. Taste is the same, perfectly sweet, no real hops. There is a little bit of funk there in the background. Medium mouthfeel and good carbonation. This is a delicious brew.

berkshirejohn (6371) - 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.

josanguapo (1504) - SPAIN - MAR 5, 2017
From Saveur Biere. In Goose Island glass. At lunch, with maccaroni bolognesa. Noticeable yet elegant, non agressive funkyness. Notes of white grapes/wine and refreshing amarillo hops. Effervescent. Sounds good but the truth is that it took much long to finish, wasnt easy drinking.

belfastjames (15) - Belfast, NORTHERN IRELAND - FEB 27, 2017
This surprised me, a lot better than I thought it would be. Pours pale golden with a quickli disappearing head, smells are citrus, pepper and herbs. Taste is sweet, citrus with a dry peppery finish. Plenty of carbonation. I expected this to be like a wiessbier for some reason which I hate, but its not, its a very very nice beer.

Raspberry, bubblegum type of Aroma with a white head that dissipates quickly. Very clean taste with a tart citrus aftertaste that leaves quickly. Very good. Aroma is very deceiving upon drinking.

panzerwolf (352) - 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.
