Sampled at World Expo of Beer in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

Really good beer -- I've heard great things, so I was expecting great things. This is a clean saison and doesn't have much (if at all) barnyard sort of funkiness that most usually do in the style. This does have a saison mouthfeel to it, and it comes off as champagne-like in this beer. The sorachi definitely gives a lemon kind of citrus freshness that works incredibly well with the bubbly carbonation and lightness of the beer. Very drinkable, very tasty. Will have again.

A: Almost matches the great Belgians w a smokey golden color with a massive head, good stickage, and lots of lace

S: Amazing. Mostly floral, with lemongrass from Sorachi hops rising from a peppery, saison-classic, spicy, yeasty back drop.

T: Follows the smell, but more assertive. The core is sweet, biscuity against which the floral notes, bright lemongrass, jasmine, spice cabinet, and white pepper rise.
Finish is all at once, sweet, herbaceous and bitter. Nice

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation, great finish. Original.

MUST TRY next to Duval and other Belgians. Amazingly well done, one of Brooklyn's best.

Drinkability: I really like this beer; perhaps I would prefer it to be just a tad dryer but that is only a quibble

I was surprised to see this sitting on the shelf in Dallas so I had to pick on up. Good thing I did because it was very good.

The beer pours a hazy gold color with a white head. The aroma is strong lemon with some wheat and Belgian yeast. The flavor is lemons with some oranges. I also get some wheat, yeast and grassy hops. Low to medium bitterness. Very soft, creamy mouthfeel and low to medium carbonation. A very good saison.

750ml bottle, split and served in Stone Levitation glasses

A - pours with a very hefty amount of bubbly, pillowy bright white foam. the beer is just slightly hazy, more so as the bottle dwindles down. leaves behind some thick yet spotty lacing.

M - very sharp lemon, not quite tart or even fruity...just a nice display of Sorachi Ace hops. joined by some sharp grassy piney hops, a slightly musty graininess, and light mustiness. nice but a little one-sided.

T - very bright lemony, grassy, piney hops. some belgian yeast with a light kiss of funk and musty basement. finishes very dry

M - insanely effervescent, with a ton of carbonation...once in your mouth it slowly fades to a pillowy fizz of a beer which just melts in your mouth. very bright and tingly, pairs great with a myriad of spicy food.

D - very enjoyable, leave it to Brooklyn to introduce an entire new unknown strain of hops and make it shine. great unique Saison.

Poured from 750ml bottle into bordeaux glass.

Aroma: A prominent lemony citrus-tea tartness from the Sorachi Ace hop. The aroma profile which evolves from tart to spicy over time, and there is also some noticeable funky brett in there as well.

Appearance: A thick, white 3 finger pillow of light foam, which leaves excellent lacing on the glass. Body is a hazy golden yellow with a tinge of orange. Effervesence is visible through the side of the glass. Unmistakeably a saison!

Flavor: Similar to aroma profile. At first, the flavor struck me as being a mix of tart, lemony hop with some underlying white-peppery bitterness. The beer evolved in the glass, though, and presented some graham cracker-like sweetness, and some yeasty spiciness. Toward the end of the glass, I really began picking up on a wild horse blanket note from the brett. Definitely an enjoyable ride flavor-wise.

Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-to-high crisp carbonation. Slight estery pepperiness.

Overall: I wasn't sure about this one at first, but found it to be highly enjoyable. Saisons normally have quite a bit to think about in the areas of aroma & flavor, and this one definitely did as well. A very refreshing brew for a hot day. I'd recommend this one as a potential pairing for any dish w/ which you might consider a pinot grigio or even a sauvignon blanc!

A: pours a light and clear yellow with a three finger white head that is slow to fade into an ommegang tulip
S: smells lemony and grassy with a bit of spice and a slight pale malt aroma
T: taste is spicy yeast with some lemony and grassy flavor with some cracker like malt. just a hint of funk as well. swallow brings more spice and lemon with a bit of grassyness plus just a touch of medicinal herb
M: carbonation is assertive but not overly so and the beer has a medium feel in the mouth. fairly smooth on the palate.
O: a very nice saison. good flavors and complexity without anything outshining another flavor.

750ml bottle, no freshness date, awesome extra from heyta - thanks man.

Pours a cloudy straw golden with apricot hues, couple fingers of head which have great retention, leaves spider lacing.

Nose is super lemony, sweet, fresh mown hay, touch of cracked pepper. Love the Sorachi Ace addition, fresh lemongrass in the flavor, orange and citrus rind along the lines of marmalade, pepper, a touch heavy for a saison but beautiful bone dry finish, hint of mineral like character in it. Quite drinkable, very spritzy carbonation. Lacking some of the characteristics of a traditional saison but a terrific take nonetheless.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a small table glass at low altitude.

A: Pours a yellow wheat color with a ton of carbonation flowing up toward the top of the glass. There's a huge prickly stark-white head that dissipates rather quickly.

S: Fruity notes up front -- lemon zest and some other citrus -- as well as some funky farmhouse notes in the background.

T: Crisp citrus flavor up front with some nice bitterness to balance. The Belgian funk from the nose comes through at the end. The taste of this beer matches the smell almost exactly -- crisp, clean and refreshing.

M: Dry with some pleasant carbonation to tingle the tongue. Exactly what I would expect from a saison.

D: Very refreshing when served cold, perfect for summer.

On draft in the Newark airport after missing a connecting flight to Portland, OR. A very pretty, almost lemon-yellow with a small, pure white head that leaves a bit of lace. Slightly muted aromas of yeast, citrus and spice - typical saison fare. Taste is delicious - fresh, lively, and so easy drinking. Mouth is just right. Medium body, nice carbonation, somewhat dry and refreshing. Overall, I was quite impressed with this.

Poured a clear straw/golden color from a 750 mL bottle, with a gigantic head and some serious carbonation.
Head dissipates slowly to leave some nice lace.
Aroma is all lemony, with hints of bread and yeast coming through intermittently. All in all this is all lemon/citrus in the nose, the way sorachi ace hops should smell.
Taste is very much like the aroma, there is a clear presence of lemon. Crisp and refreshing ale, very refreshing actually.
There is a tartness in the finish which is complimented very well by the carbonation, a very nice clean finish.
This is very drinkable with really good mouthfeel. An excellent rendition of a saison/farmhouse ale.
Definitely worth a try and comes highly recommended. Pairs perfectly with some goat cheese.

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.

i'm putting this up on the basis of what i had on tap at the hop leaf. by this name exactly. i haven't had all the saisons by brooklyn so it may be differently named perhaps. so if i'm off let someone know.

"Sorachi ace is a little used hop that japanese brewers created by crossing czech saaz w/ UK brewers gold. its now grown in oregon." (some backup info from hopleaf)

the beer was an eccentric saison that pours rather pale golden murky but with a wonderful tight sticky head. nose of rich herbal lemon predominately. lemon grassy, coriander, clove, licorice, and a whole lot of dandelion. rather italian in spice. robust. palate is surprisingly meaty with a lot of chamomile and what would seem like miso soup doughy. deep greens bitter that's earthy mineral but mild when blended with the lemon. although the lemon is vibrant its not very forward. the herbal quality of the beer makes it rather dry with a soft fruit sweet and predominant herbal finish. here along with the herbs do you notice the pollen and the honey of the blend. burps up lemon grass due to the lively carbonation but not bitter. mild sweet honey finish.

all in all a very unique and balanced beer with a malt character and a carbonation that seem to work with its herbal forwardness and unique hop quality. a treat.

had it again a few days later again at the hopleaf... first of the keg.

this time much leaner and not as much murk. not as herbal but just as cream of a head. seems a bit easier to take. very floral this time around. definitely a honey saison with a twist. hops had the same lemon grassy but also very pollen and a very slight sweet pineapple. but not something that made the whole beer sweet. style a large about of flower qualities. chamomile, dandelion, and honeysuckle. much crisper though. clean with only hints of a dense herb. actually quite similar to the Bière De Miel Biologique by dupont this time around outside of the that still unique but interesting miso soup doughy i mentioned earlier. better this time around though.

Purchased at the LCBO for a mighty steep $9.95 for a 750ml bottle. Served at 7deg C in a tulip.

A- Very nice. Opens with a mighty pop and pours a ton of head. Unfiltered

S- WOW I like this one. So new.

T- A bit of pine needles. Not like gin but it's there. So this is Sorachi hops. I like

M- Creamy and bold. Super nice refreshing try

O- Very good. Worth having a couple around

Food Pairing

This light beer cut through the hot flavor believe it or not of..... Ethiopian Berbere curry

Enjoy!

Love the slightly hazy, grain yellow color. thin white head

grains continue in the nose

bananas up front, tart in back. Lingering lemons. Sorachi Ace is an interesting hop, harking back to traditional European hops but a little spicier

Carbonation tingles the tip of the tongue but not overly so. Effervescence continues to rise throughout sitting

Overall an excellent take on a traditional beer without resorting to West Coast hops for a non-traditional spin

Pours a slightly hazy light golden, modest creamy head, good lace retention. Fruity in the nose, mainly pear. Some barnyard aroma, particularly hay. Fruity taste like pears soaked in alcohol . Dry white wine like feel. Very smooth and drinkable. A really good beer.

12oz bottle poured into a chalice.

A: Hazy golden. Fine-bubbled white head settles shortly. Spotty lacing.

S: Lemongrass, pulpy lemon, pithy. Big yeasty undertones, peppery, perfume. Cracker and shortbread malt.

T: Lemony, lemon grass, lemon head candy, very herbal. Jasmine. Yeasty and earthy. Slightly medicinal. Juicy tropical fruits. Simple toasty and grainy malt base. Dry. Yeasty, herbal, and lemony finish.

M: Medium bodied. Round, creamy, and a little chewy in that floury yeast type of way. Fluffy. Very smooth and enjoyable feel.

O: With a neutral malt character, this beer is all about the interplay of the Belgian yeast strain and the unique Sorachi Ace hops. The hopping itself brings enough complexity to drive the beer and keep the drinker interested throughout the session, but the yeast character adds much too. It really gets its hooks into you and draws you in with each sip. As far as pairings go this is an absolute slam dunk with sushi.

A steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a voluminous, four-finger thick, pale tan colored head. The head has a ton of staying power, lots of lacing is left on the sides of my glass and the head forms a variegated, interesting surface as it slowly subsides. The beer is a hazy, straw / light gold hue that shows flashes of bright yellow when held up to the light. The aroma smells strongly of the hop influence; bright fruit notes of juicy-fruit gum, huge notes of freshly zested lemon peel, lemon pepper, a touch of basil and more of a herbaceous grassy note towards the finish serve as the initial focus. Dried hay and pale cracker like malt character serves as a very subtle backdrop to the hop character up front and becomes a touch more noticeable once you really start to spend a focused session of smelling the beer; the malt can never shake the hop character though and even in the finish is a bright citrus note that makes me think of lemon scented furniture cleaner. While the beer seems dry compared to an IPA, I can't really pinpoint any interesting yeast contributed aromatics in this beer; the nose is nice but I feel like I am missing out on some rustic yeast influence.

This is effervescent to say the least, the beer foams up quite well as it crosses the tongue, though it is not too highly carbonated. The beer feels very dry on the palate, though some of the fruity citrus notes contribute a perception of sweetness even if the malt character is quite dry. Cracker like grain notes and a touch of dried straw are joined by a malt roundness in the middle that is almost sweetness, but really just a malt fullness to the palate that keeps this from being overly thin. This has a very firm bitterness to it from the beginning of each sip (much of this is influenced by the peppery carbonation) and this remains through to the finish all the while being accentuated by the carbonic bite. The juicy hop character contributes notes of Meyer lemon, lightly sweetened lemon zest, a touch of floral tropical fruit character and some menthol notes that numb the tongue a bit. After shaking / swirling the beer to expel some of the carbonation the beer gets softer, with more of a fullness to the body (though still light and quaffable) and my first sip has me noticing some warming alcohol (though this seems to dissipate quickly). The hop character definitely has a certain furniture cleaner quality to it, while I wouldn't characterize it as bad; it might get to be a little much for me if I was drinking this over a long session. Perhaps some rustic phenolic character from the yeast helps to accentuate this character; in fact, after further reflection, I think that some clove and other phenolic notes from the yeast do in fact accentuate this character here. As the beer warms it picks up a touch of a medicinal character in the finish as well as getting spicy with peppery notes, a touch of spicy ginger and even a something a bit like a sage-like note 9this last being influenced by both the hops and the yeast character).

A nice hop focused Saison, which with time will likely become more noticeably fermentation driven; this is more due to the hop character fading, than the yeast character actually becoming greater over time though. I admit that I like this beer so much because I am a sucker for hoppy Saisons; in all honesty this could certainly use a touch more of a characterful yeast / fermentation influence, even though this is certainly in evidence here.

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.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle.

Pours a very highly carbonated, yellow, pale cloudy color with a big foamy head that leaves nice lacing. Complexities in the appearance are ridiculous. Smells lemony, with some white pepper, a touch of radish and maybe some light minty pine. Taste is very complex, bitter, astrigenty, then sweet, wheaty, bready and some white pepper on the finish. Dry as can be, perfect substitute for white wine. Nice carbonation, might be a tad too high even but solid. Drinkability is high on this one as its so refreshing. drank nearly the whole bottle myself.

Pours a cloudy bright straw color, fluffy white head, decent retention and lacing. Smell is of grass, yeast, bread, clay, lemon and slight herbal charachter. Taste is grassy and yeasty with a nice hints of lemon and bread, with a faint spice charachter in the background. Crisp, clean and refreshing. A very good and unique saison.

A big thanks to erikkoppin for hooking me up on a trade!

A- Poured hazy, yellow. Large fluffy head that left lots of lacing on the glass.

S- Lots of lemony, citrus up front. Some spice towards the end. Very inviting beer from the nose.

T- Citrus taste at the front of the drink. Some spice and tartness towards the end. Lots of flavors in the middle do seem to make it complex. Flavors are very balanced and make you want to keep drinking trying to figure them all out.

M- Lighter body with good carbonation. Some bitterness towards the end with a little dry finish.

D- Very tasty beer. I could have easily drank another one, maybe two tonight. Every drink made me want another. Very solid beer, wouldn't hesitate to buy another if I saw one.

Poured from 1 pt 9 0z bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. I could not find a bottle dated code.

Pale yellow in color, cloudy with lots of carbonation. Two finger creamy, white head dissipated farily quickly. Nice lacing left up and down the glass.

I smell lemons and grass. From the smell I get the idea this may be a little sweet. Can smell a hint of hops.

Tastes as it smells. First it's citrusy then comes the grass notes and a crisp hop finish. The hops are not overpowering but present. The taste of the Sorachi Ace hops are quite unique.

This is a light bodied beer with a lot of carbonation. I get a grassy after taste that is quite smooth. Fairly high abv at 7.6% but alchohol is not noticeable.

As mentioned before, this is a light bodied and very refreshing beer. Very tasty and would be/is excellent for a backyard barbeque when the weather is nice. I had mine with a medium rare cheeseburger with blue cheese crumbles and barbeque sauce, which turned out to be a fantastic pairing. At about 13.00 dollars a bottle i don't know how many more I'll actually drink. This would be great in a 6 or 4 pack.

Sorachi Ace looks the part of a great Belgian ale. Sorachi pours a hazed and cloudy gold. Things are topped off by a massive white head. The head has some definite staying power. The head finally settles to a ring. It leaves tons of sticky lace in its wake.

The aroma is interesting. A dominating lemon quality sticks out front. Juicy ripe lemons hit first. Things are followed by a strong lemongrass quality. A noticeable wood quality is also present. Behind all the lemony qualities, some definite spice notes hit. Black pepper is the dominate spice note. A bit of an overall earthy quality is present as well.

The flavor is no less intriguing. Plenty of lemon notes throughout. A very pronounced sweet juicy quality gives way to a more pronounced lemongrass quality. The woodiness in the nose is slightly less pronounced in the flavor. Behind all the lemon qualities, there is a definite powdery quality. In addition there is a light bit of bubblegum. The peppery quality in the nose is less pronounced in the flavor. The pepper notes hit lightly in the finish. The finish is dry with more more lingering lemon notes.

Sorachi Ace has a lightish body. The carbonation is boisterous and effervescent.

This is quite the tasty and intriguing brew. Brooklyn brewery has paid righteous tribute to an overlooked hop. This Japanese Sorachi Ace hop, care of Sapporo breweries, is quite interesting. Brooklyn has created a tasty quaff centered around said hop. This is quite the hop-centric brew, yet won't turn off non hop heads. The lemon notes from the hops lend a strong thirst quenching quality. The alcohol is kept well in check. My hats off to Brooklyn for creating a tasty and unique saison.

Acquisition: 02.25.2015 - Bottle Bar, Frankford Avenue - PHL 19125

(Appearance) Very Nice. Straw yellow, slightly cloudy, big pillowy head with decent lacing.

(Aroma) Nice. The aroma changes quickly, early bananas, spice, slight citrus. Later the funk begins to shine, erasers, toast. In this sample the Sorachi hops didn't really shine? I assume my presumption expected limoncello, not the brewery's fault, my fault.

(Taste) Very Nice. This beer is polite and gentle, mouth feel is velvty soft and drinks without demanding attention. Carbonation is perfect. The bitterness is balanced and the malt is not lost, sweet although dry. Alcohol is wonderfully non-existance.

(Overall) I like this beer, alot! I bet Garrett Oliver never anticipated making a beer like this, thank goodness for Brooklyn gentrification.....sorry New Yorkers you deserve it and you can handle it. I would love to drink this fresh in Brooklyn!

Cracked open a 750ml with the family. It was a big success.

A- poured very smooth. A nice layer of foam in the glass. A cloudy look that reminds me of most belgian ales.

S- You can clearly smell a hint of citrus.

T- Tastes of lemon, and the champagne yeast they use gives the beer *lots* of action. It paired awesome with the BBQ chicken I ate, but I could see this going with seafood perfectly. The Sarachi hops reminds you that this is a different type of beer, and in a good way.

M- Fizzy, smooth to drink though. No problems getting this one down.

D- I would look for this as a summer beer. I tried this a year ago on tap at the brewery, and in a bottle it was just as good. Could easily have finished the bottle myself, though I'd need to hide it from everyone else.
