Details

Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a classic saison, a cracklingly dry, hoppy unfiltered golden farmhouse ale, but featuring rare Sorachi Ace hop.

Fermented with a special Belgian ale strain, Sorachi Ace hops are added post-fermentation. After 100% bottle re-fermentation with Champagne yeast, the beer emerges with a bright spicy lemon zest aroma. It tastes like sunshine in a glass, and that suits us just fine, especially with seafood dishes and fresh cheeses.

Brewery Info

Originally one of America’s foremost brewing centres thanks to its large German population, the last Brooklyn-based brewery closed in 1976 in the face of overwhelming competition from bigger Midwest breweries and consumer preference (at the time) for light pilsner beers.

Brooklyn resident Steve Hindy made it his mission to reignite brewing in the area, and in 1984 founded Brooklyn Brewery with the goal of bringing good beer back to New York City. Now headed up by Brewmaster, beer author and all-round beer icon Garrett Oliver, Brooklyn Brewery has become an international beacon for good beer.

I'd read a few good things about this beer so decided to have a go. Not really to my taste but decent never the less.

Always on any online order, it is one of the few Saison in my opinion better than Dupont.
The Sorachi Hops provide the perfect complement to the herbal notes from the belgian yeast.
It has a good dryness, and the herbal notes are balanced against the lemon
