Pours a golden yellow with 2 " brilliant white head. High carbonation you expect from a Saigon.

Smell is heavy on citrus and less barnyard than accustomed to for the style. Certainly a lighter crisper taste as well which my ignorance will attribute to the sorachi hops.

If you are looking for more earthy Saison this probably isn't for you but a very nice beer in many respects.

Serving type: on-tap

This one pours a hazy deep gold with two fingers of tight, white-frothy head that settles gradually. The aroma is bright and refreshing with notes of lemon zest and a crisp, crackery malt backbone. Notes of herbs and earth lie faint in the background. The flavor is dry and clean, with a crisp, light-bodied mouthfeel. Some appropriate astringency hits on the back of the palate with each swallow. Sorachi Ace is a uniquely refreshing example of a style I'm still learning to appreciate.
