4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Pale, clear, golden yellow color that glows underneath a towering fluffy white head. Super thick lacing just coats the glass and sticks a bit. Beautiful looking beer.

S - Lemon, grass, some of that barnyard funk, in the back I detect notes of champagne probably from the yeast plays against some faint lemony citrus hops. The smell doesn't jump out of the glass, I had to work to pull out the aromas even in a snifter.

T - First, there is zero alcohol presence I mean it's amazing this beer is 7.6%. It's got a nice bright lemony citrus hit up front, grassy and some funk give way to a champagne sweetness. It finishes super dry, slightly bitter and tart. So drinkable, that dry finish begs for another sip, no alcohol presence.

M - Highly carbonated, thin body and super dry. Nailed it.

O - This was amazing. My first saison and it has opened my eyes to the style. Refreshing, amazing taste and mouthfeel. I had it to celebrate the first day of spring but this would be great in the heat of summer. I'm going to seek this out again.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Reviewing after the fact. 750 poured in to pint glass.

Great color, great head. Wonderful retention and lacing. Not quite as bright on the nose as you would expect a Belgian, but still the spiciness and tangy, straw/hey characters you want. This thing is almost dead on the money for flavor profile. The yeast compliments this brew nicely and I'm digging the subtle hop character. Some brewers use an overbearing yeast strain on the malts, but not this, and the Champagne yeast used for condition really drys it up nicely. Nice carbonation in the mouth. Drying, warming, tingling spiciness.

What a great brew that I almost passed up on. If you like the Saison/Farmhouse/Belgian style, pick it up.

4.59/5  rDev +11.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance - Incredible head. Like whipped cream. Very tiny bubbles, very active in the glass with bubbles racing upward. Super dense, thick and buttery. Bright white and heavy lacing. Retention is excellent as well. Very impressive. Perfect.

Smell - Lemon, mango, fresh hop/ hemp/ lupulin oil, raw honey, subtle dill pickle funk is noticeable, zesty, vanilla, fresh flowers, plants, coriander seeds/ spice, pear, lemon peel and fresh bread.

Taste - Lemon, apple, pear, bubblegum, sour dough, fresh white bread, candied orange peel/ lemon peel, coriander seeds, clear Belgian candi sugar, cookie dough, pilsner malt/ wheat grain, and fresh-cut grass/ flowers. Quite dry and bitter, but works so well. Dry hopping a second time during fermentation really creates a cleaner, stronger bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Extremely chewy, yet sharp and clean. Stimulates sour and acidic taste buds. High carbonation that helps to make this beer really pop! Coats the mouth. Felt all throughout the mouth -- mainly on the roof and front. Tingly and fizzy. Champagne-like.

Overall - This may be one of the best Farmhouse ales I've ever had, personally. Perfectly balanced, perfectly dry-hopped, perfectly succinct. A wonderful Farmhouse. Crisp, clean, sugary, complex and layered. The Sorachi Ace also makes quite a statement. Very floral, funky and natural tasting, almost like flowers and cannabis with rich sugars and fresh yeast. Delicious. It doesn't get much better than this. Teetering on perfection -- in fact, I do not know what could be improved. I rate this even higher given the fun experimentation.

Lemon sets the tone from the bright yellow color to the nose and taste. Some bubblegum and white pepper, there is a sweet and spicy feel about the whole experience. The malt is subdued but present with a more yeast tones an light lemony hops. Really like this, maybe not love it but worth the try.

750ml corked and caged bottle marked '0822'. so it's about 2 years old

Look is a very hazy yellow, like a yellow crayon, with an orange background. Sudsy head that fades. Smell is peppery yeast, rice paper, and lots of lemon, grass, and lemongrass. Taste is crisp and buttery yeast, well water, and lemon drop tasting hops. Not too bitter. Feel is light and much less cloying than other saisons.

I like it, even with ~2 years on it.

4.03/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a corked and caged bomber dated 1/7/13 (I think?) into a Jester King Funk and Sour tulip.

Appearance: Deep golden beer, with a fluffy and persistant thick off white head. Thick lacing too.

Smell: Lightly floral hops, and lots of belgian yeasty sweetness. Slightly vinous. Really nice.

Taste: Really unique floral flavors, likely from the Sorachi Ace hops. A solid belgian backbone makes this a very easily sessionable, but ultimately too light and fleeting flavor beer. A slight bready malt comes through. Next to no aftertaste, nothing lingers for long.

Mouthfeel: A light body, yet still manages to be creamy. On the lighter side of carbonation, but still substantial.

Overall: A good beer overall, and I'm glad I tried it. Perhaps this beer is better fresh, but it isn't knocking me out of the park. Prairie standard seems like a better representation of the sessionable hoppy saison style, I'll probably stick with that.

Appearance: hazy honey color. 2 fingers of a foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a bit of a lacing behind.

Smell: lemon bread and sweet lemony citrus. small amount of belgian yeast and just a little spiciness.

Taste: Lemon bread and sweet citrus. belgian yeast. The overall taste combination comes off grassy to me

Mouthfeel: sticky, too light and very dry

Overall: i like some of the tastes but the combination comes off unbalanced and grassy

Had this before and gave it a good rating so I wanted to do a full review to see where it fell. Excellent overall beer, outstanding look for a saison, will even better smell, and a very interesting, and satisfying flavor. One of my favorites and one I will revisit from time to time.

750ml cork and caged bottle served in a DFH signature glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark golden yellow color with 2 fingers of a white soapy head. Body is very hazy but translucent with lots of visible carbonation. Really good retention and lacing.

Smell: Lemon, white grape, green apple, belgian yeast, spices, grass

Taste: Follows the aroma pretty closely. Bready/doughy malt, white grape, lemon, lightly tart, spicy yeast.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp. High carbonation. Really dry finish with a mild lingering bitterness.

Overall: Really nice saison. The sorachi ace hops add a nice twist on a traditional saison. Definitely worth picking up a bottle.

3.79/5  rDev -8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Sampled on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. A light yellow to amber colored brew with a minimal white head but ample carbonation, sparkly and with a champagne-like mouthfeel. Aroma extremely bright, fruity, and vegetal, redolent with lemon zest, green herbs, yeast-derived spicy notes, and a dry nutty earthiness, perhaps a tad musty. Palate is unique, a combination of more typical earthy, spicy flavors characteristic of classic saisons and assertive herbal/citrus hops, as one would expect from a beer billed as a single-hop showcase. The pilsener malt and nutty yeast elements are present but take a back seat to vibrant cilantro, lemon grass, and spice seed flavors that make for a memorable and perhaps polarizing taste experience. There is also a root cellar earthy peppery spice lurking in there, with a floral perfume and some alcohol peeking through at times. Crisp and dry, body is just shy of middling and the lack of sweetness becomes more apparent as one proceeds through a pint. Approach this one in the right mindset and you'll be intrigued by some unusual flavors. Sorachi Ace is a distinctive hop.

Got a gift of great beer from great people today – Christmas came early this year. Cheers!

Brewed 07/12/2012, over a year before the date of this tasting. Not ideal, but it’ll do.

A: Pours a rich gold with light haze. Extraordinarily fizzy: turbulent bubbles rise through the body to support a tall, frothy, white head. After a minute, what’s left is a wonderfully smooth inch of retention and webs of chunky lacing. Gorgeous.

S: Hop aromas are forward and absolutely succulent, with an unmistakable character of lemon and tangerine. Natural, juicy, absolutely mouthwatering citrus scents. Towards the end, there’s a couple more subtle scents of spice – white pepper and coriander – and bready Belgian yeast scents.

T: You can taste the age, and that’s both good and bad: it has a slight flavor of stale, grainy pilsen malt, but the soft breadiness of the champagne yeast it’s been sitting on is quite apparent. I love the way Brooklyn utilizes that yeast flavor (a great component in the flavor of Black Ops), and it definitely works here. The most forward tastes include white bread and butter, clove, and sugar cookie, though these are all under the blanket of a zesty lemongrass hop character. Finishes with dry spice: mild puckering of citrus and grain husk.

M: Soft carbonation and a light, creamy, champagne body: very, very drinkable. Best at just a little colder than cellar temp, but even as it warms it never gets offensive in any way.

O: I’m surprised such a hop-centric beer was still so great after almost a year and a half, but if anyone can make that happen, it’s Brooklyn. Definitely a must-try; and hey, if you’re looking for a gift beer, this one was greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

From the corked, caged bottle no. 0042. Sampled on December 23, 2013. I acquired this as a clearance bottle for $5.99 which I thought was a good deal since I hadn't had it before.

The pour is golden yellow with a white fizzy carbonated head that lingers longer than your typical glass of champagne.

Loads of sparkling grapes, lemon,. and other citrus on the nose intertwined mild roasted malts and a feint hop kick.

Light to medium body with a lot of carbonation that increases what I like refer to as the "belch factor." Yup, plenty of that going on.

The taste is parallels what I get on the nose with a significant lemon zest and citrus zing flavor, mildly toasted malts, and a tart yet dry finish. It is very much like champagne with that slight maltiness to remind me it is a beer.

Poured into a tulip out of a 22oz bottle.

Pours a hazy light straw yellow with a very fluffy, billowy white head. Globs of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass along with amazing head retention.

The aroma is typical of a saison but is very rich. Lots of bread and yeast notes along with a tremendous punch of citrus. A little mustyness along with some lemon and a touch of citrus. Very nice and quite deep.

The flavor is a bit on the light side but is quite nice. Spicy yeast esters along with orange peel and a touch of lemon. Some bread and hay along with grass. Some vanila finishes things up along with a drying finish and a touch of bitterness. Mouthfeel is quite dry with just a little bit of stickyness to end things up.

Overall, a very nice Saison with a twist. The sorachi ace hop lends some very nice citrus notes that compliment the Belgina yeast nicely. A good beer that is worth picking up.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a 750 ml bottle into a goblet.

A - The beer is a very pale yellow or straw color. It is milky but not what I'd call cloudy. The head is thick, active and fluffy and a bright, just off-white color. Lots of lacing. This resembles a Belgian wit more than anything, but looks appropriate for a saison as well.

S - Very interesting and unique aroma. I get mostly black pepper, but there are other indistinct spicy notes behind there that add complexity. There is some citrus at a low level. There is also a bit of grainy pilsner malt.

T - Grainy pilsner malt that is just about overwhelmed by black pepper and lemongrass flavors. Slightly sweet finish. No noticeable hops.

M - Medium to full body. Prickly, aggressive carbonation that is in line with the style. Moderate hops bitterness. Moderate alcohol burn.

O - This is a good saison with some unique flavors that I assume are from the sorachi ace hops. I find it just a bit too heavy in the body, but have no other critiques.

1 pint 9.4 oz bottle; Back of bottle "0083"

The beer poured a hazy orange color that produced a huge white head that was very well retained and faded into a thin cap. Carbonation was streaming to the top of the glass. The beer gave off a very good Belgian yeast aroma and slight citrus, lemon maybe. The taster was excellent, just what you would expect, but with a dry aftertaste. The beer follows the nose perfectly. The beer had a medium body, good carbonation, and it was extremely drinkable and smooth. Overall, very high quality.

My first Sorachi Ace beer. Local beer guy saw me picking up Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale as usual & convinced me to try this one instead. Short summary - a perfectly respectable beer, but I'll be staying with the Tank 7 in future.

This was a large format bottle poured into pint glasses. I was startled by the amount of head - a lot more than I expect from a saison. Appearance is cloudy & unremarkable. Surprisingly low aroma beer in general - every description I've read talks of lemongrass, but I didn't catch it. Taste - the "other" hops seem to dominate over the Sorachi Ace. Very good on the amount of "sourness" that you get on the front of a saison, before settling into a hoppy back end. Mouthfeel is definitely on the dry side which I appreciate very much.

Obviously I need to try a couple more Sorachi hopped beers before I decide if they are worth the fuss for me. This is a very drinkable saison but not a great one.

With the rampant availability of this in my area, I'm smacking myself in the head for not having tried this sooner. Picked up a bomber at the local Stop & Shop. It definitely needs to warm a bit before all the complexity comes out. First glass was a bit too cold and I found it good but not great. Second glass, I let sit for about 10 minutes and that's when this beer really shined. Very pleasant mild funk on the nose with grass and lemon interwoven. Poured out with a nice head that held on till I drained the glass. Kind of earthy taste, again with the grass and lemon. And it goes down quite easily. A very good beer which I will definitely buy again; and can find virtually anywhere.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Solid straw golden color. Very cloudy body. Pours with a head of about a finger and a half of bubbly head which subsided but was present the entire time while drinking. Low active carbonation in the glass while drinking.

Smell: The front is a unique soapy, heavy straw aroma that really carries throughout the aroma. Bready yeast and biting hops are also present.

Taste: The sorachi ace hops make themselves known right away. I love the peppercorn, herbal, ginger, and leafy greens flavors. The earthy yeast characteristics mix very well with what the sorachi ace hops are bringing. There is also a nice fruity body to this beer filled with pears and apricots. The finish is a mild amount of straw and prairie grass with lingering pepper accents.

Mouthfeel: Mild carbonation especially for a saison. Lots going on in this beer but everything mixes well.

Overall: Sorachi Ace seems like a perfect fit for a saison. Herbal/wild tones of the hops play along well with the strong yeast saison background.

Sorachi Ace from the bomber, poured into a square mason jar/jug with handle.

A: wallopping three finger head. Rocky, could support the empire state building on this head! Easily floated 4 bottle caps on it. That's that champagne yeast and bottle conditioning!!! beautiful deep yellow unfiltered hue.

S: Lactic funk and smooth malts. Lemony Sorachi Ace. lemongrass, hay. Gets medicine-y as it warms. Very slight astringent in a very, very pleasant way.

T: Smooth biscuity malts, hay field, grassy, earthy and lactics. Gently bitter finish. Very smooth. Spicy yeast and bready.

M: Smooth tight bubbles yield a very creamy experience. Deceptive due to alcohol and style because it's never cloyingly thick or overtly boozy. It started going to that grass, then funk followed by a milky, gently bitter finish. Slight booze heat on ultimate outbreath. This finish is perfect. Reminds me of pannacotta with a bittering agent. I am blown away.

O: My hat is off to the discovery of Sorachi Ace hop varietals and how Brooklyn Brewing assembled this brew. This is fantastic. It is hands down one of the best Saisons out there.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery tulip glass. It pours a beautiful slightly hazy straw color with a thick bright white head that settles into a thin cap.

The smell is lemon citrus with a hint of grass. These is a slight pleasant funk. The taste reminds me of being in a field on a summer morning. There is a light sweetness at the start with a blast of lemon from the hops and some fruitiness. The finish is clean, dry and refreshing. There's a hint of a pepper with pleasant alcohol warmth. This is an excellent beer.

Had this on tap at the Brooklyn Brewery last fall. It poured just like a saison should - light gold with light froth. The smell straight from the tap was a lemon explosion. Enjoyable on a hot summer day I would presume. The taste was clean with some fruits hidden, like lemon and pear. The mouthfeel was dry right from the start but the carbonation was medium.
This beer is all about the Sorachi Ace hops. It showcases them deliciously and refreshingly.

T: crisp crackers, lemongrass, flowers and herbs, wet with dew and slightly sweet with honey and spice

M: light, fuzzy and fizzy, clean finishing and refreshing

O: a very nicely done saison, simple and straightforward - nothing tricky, just good, clean craftsmanship using German two-row pilsener malt, Sorachi Ace hops, and Belgian house and champagne yeast.

A- looks pretty light with a very straw color that haze a tad bit of haze.

S- This brew has a very spicy smell. It smells a bit peppery and is nice and strong.

T- up front it is pretty mild with a slight hop presence. It is very crisp and refreshing and I taste a bit of sweetness from a fruit.

M- it is not as thin as I thought it would be. The crispness comes from the nice carbonation.

Overall it is a great summer porch drinker but more of a sipper in the sun.

This pours clear and the color of golden rays of sunshine. It has a streaming effervescence and a tall creamy white head of foam that just won't fall. Leaves a much of itself behind as lace and as a layer on top. Nose is delicate. Light malt, like a soft wind has brought the scent of grain. Light fruit sweetness and a little earth. A little funk and some lemongrass. The sweet zest of the lemon and a grassy herbal quality. There's a touch of cracker int he nose and a little pear to add some sweetness.

Taste is superb. fresh, crisp, clean. delicate, feather light malt creates a supple mouthfeel. Flows so easily. The lemon is bright and light. the pear adds crispness and a little sweetness. It's bone dry and thirst quenching. The sparkling carbonation adds to the lightness of the body and makes it drink even better. There's a little soft white pepper in the finish and the after taste is just as delicate and just as flavorful as the first taste. It's simplicity itself both on the nose and in the drink.

This beer evokes images of still life paintings, french meadows, rays of sunlight. It drinks easily and is enlivening and vivid. A terrific beer. Would pair easily with a variety of cheeses, light dishes and even with salads. Has a body and a palate that would compliment plenty of fresh and pungent herbs as this is so clean with only a very simple palate. Mild and gentle.

Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, fruit, earth, and slight funk aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and mineral-like flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid but not in your face hop presence.
