4.25/5 rDev +3.4%
Appearance: Hazy vibrant yellow golden color with a huge head and ton of lacing
Smell: lemon zest, yeast, spice
Taste: Follows the smell with lemon citrus, yeast, and slight spice, but I get more doughy malt on the palate which rounds everything out nicely
Mouthfeel: Medium body; Perfect carbonation, smooth and extremely drinkable, with slight bitterness
Overall: I haven't dabbled with this style much as saisons don't usually impress me, but this was just interesting enough to keep me satisfied. The flavors and aromas are a bit subdued than what I prefer, but its clean, balanced, drinkable, and ultimately damn tasty. This is a summer beer for the record books. Recommended!

Hazy golden in color with a prodigious head. Retention is very good, and lace rings the top of the glass. Aroma is not very powerful, but there's a definitely floral hop note along with the some of the lemongrass character that Sorachi Ace hops are known for. The yeast lends a hand, too, giving the banana and clove notes that you'd expect.
Dry and crisp on the palate, finishing with a solid hop bitterness. Citric hop character, solid malt presence, and just a bit yeasty. Carbonation is somewhat aggressive but softer than a sparkling wine. While this is no session beer, the flavor and mouthfeel give it a very refreshing character, with only a bit of alcohol warmth. Brooklyn's big bottle Belgians (Local 1,2) are great beers, and Sorachi Ace is no exception.
