3.63/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 22 oz bottle into cervoise. Best by 28 May 24 (5 years).
A: Pours a clear golden yellow with 1 inch finely-bubbled white head that fairly quickly recedes to a thin skim.
S: A burst of brett funk, white pepper, earthy minerals, and blackberries.
T: Blackberries with an odd red wine note, white pepper, brett funk also comes across different here, and the earthy minerals are more bitter and astringent here. Hmmm...not as good as the aroma.
M: Light body. Moderately effervescent. Odd clash of bitter astringent mineral and soft berry sweetness with a subtle vinous note. Not well balanced.
D: Save your $10 and take a pass. I wanted to like this given how much I like the original Sofie. Just get regular Sofie.

This has a substantial yet delicate funk, bringing notes of hay and barnyard, with a light but firm froth in the medium-light body, accented by light but tart blackberry that's slightly herbal, finishing barely semi-dry.
