Brooklyn Sorachi Ace

Brooklyn Sorachi Ace

Style Pale Ale
Country American Beers
ABV 7.6%
Serving Temp 6 to 8 °C
Bottle Size 355ml

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.

    Review by Neale

    One of the best Saisons out there. 7.2% so beware don’t drink too many in one sitting!!! (Posted on 07/12/2017)

  • Has to be tried

    Review by Lee

    This was the first beer i've had that was made using Sorachi hops. I remember getting it out at a little Christmas gathering I was having. I couldn't think of anything else when I started drinking it. It was delicious....I've had a Weird Beard Sorachi Faceplant since and it wasn't a patch on this Brooklyn classic. I would say it's their best beer. (Posted on 02/12/2017)

  • Not impressed

    Review by Richard

    I'd heard about this type of hop and expected great things, could just not be to my taste but wasn't at all impressed. (Posted on 27/11/2017)

  • Bring me sunshine...

    Review by AdyG

    Where's summer, because this is the perfect summer drinking beer. A classic saison that is crisp and refreshing (Posted on 11/08/2017)

  • Slightly disappointing from Brooklyn

    Review by Jo

    Golden, hazy (looks like a snowglobe), fragrant, slight caramel, orange and perfume aroma, thin to medium crisp, dry mouthfeel, banana, slightly spicy (clove?) and earthy flavour, dry, hoppy aftertaste. (Posted on 30/07/2017)

  • A Summer drink

    Review by Shunt

    Perfect crisp flavours with citrus of the sorachi ace hops shining through - all perfectly balanced with the unique saison yest esters,
    A great drink to enjoy ice cold on a blistering summers day. (Posted on 08/07/2017)

  • A hoppy fizzy delight

    Review by John

    I had an ice cold bottle of this to celebrate the birth of my daughter.
    This was my first bottle but will not be the last.
    Hoppy, fragrant and fizzy. Reminiscent of a good saison. (Posted on 26/06/2017)

  • Brooklyn At It's Best

    Review by Simon Lee

    I went to NYC recently and paid a visit to the Brooklyn Brewery. During the 2 hour visit I got to try 6 different beers. The Sorachi Ace was by far the best beer (the other 5 were superb also)!! I orders a few bottles and wasn't disappointed at all. Will definitely be buying more in the future!! 10/10 (Posted on 05/05/2017)

  • Zesty Belgian!

    Review by Oddrods

    Really gassy but that suits the style, lots of zesty citrus on the nose this carries through when tasted. Very Belgian saison like dryness at first but a late sweetness comes through. I drank mine ice cold, it was very refreshing. (Posted on 09/04/2017)

  • Hoppy!

    Review by Mark

    Loved this...great, floral hoppy taste. Definitely worth a try. (Posted on 19/03/2017)

  • 'Ace' sums it up

    Review by Llamaman

    Huge nose of lemon and orange zest. Spritz carbonation but tastes smooth. Saison funk, fruitiness and a spicy kick. (Posted on 17/03/2017)

  • decent Saison

    Review by mattyjp

    Golden color, cloudy liquid and nice head. Floral hoppy aroma.... Taste is bitter and sweet... like belgian ale
    not to my taste but i prefer hoppy IPA's, no doubt this will be loved by saison lovers tho (Posted on 15/03/2017)

  • Superb

    Review by AdyG

    A sublime take on the classic saison. The Sorachi hops work well in this style (Posted on 13/03/2017)

  • The Ace of Spades

    Review by TurboRay

    I'm not one for IPA's, but wow, Sorachi Ace is fantastic! The achohol kills any bitter aftertaste and it's as smooth and flavoursome as anything! Who knew the yanks could brew beer this good! (Posted on 30/12/2016)

  • Ace

    Review by Leedj1

    Very nice, easy to drink, bitter finish with what I thought was a slight aftertaste of bourbon type flavour. (Posted on 16/12/2016)

  • fantastic

    Review by shunt

    A fantastic saison beer that is elevated into something wonderful with the sorachi ace hops. Full of zingy citrus with grapefruit and hint of tropical flavours. A real winner. (Posted on 14/12/2016)

  • Saison

    Review by Birky

    Hazy yellow with a hint of grapefruit and nice bitter finish. (Posted on 05/12/2016)

  • Nice and then some

    Review by Ninja Terrier

    I do like the American 355ml bottles they give you that little bit more that a european 330ml bottle. This has all the classic Saison qualities with added zing from the Sorachi Ace hop. Another quality offering from the Brooklyn boys. (Posted on 24/11/2016)

  • Lemons

    Review by Tworopes

    Not too bitter, with a big hit of lemon, would have preferred a bit more hops but good all the same. (Posted on 16/11/2016)

  • Decent

    Review by Blind_Drunk

    I have had a few from Brooklyn now and I must say they are starting to win me over. Not a fan of their lager but most other things I have tried from them seem to offer a nice tasting beer including this one. Very light and delicate, you could enjoy this beer at any time (Posted on 13/11/2016)

  • Loved it

    Review by Bancini

    A very nice hopped up saison, taste is bitter with a very dry finish. (Posted on 23/10/2016)

  • Definitely worth a try!

    Review by arejaypea

    Really delicate, sophisticated brew. Think it may be made with Champagne yeasts, as the bubbles are incredibly fine. Feels almost like a special occasion beer-- rich in dark caramel and orange peel, yet refreshing and refined also.

  • Lemon Curd beer

    Review by Cresp

    I\'m yet to try a Brooklyn beer I don\'t like, the Sorachi Ace is a gorgeous ale that smells and tastes of lemon curd. You could easily get through 5 or 6 bottles of this wonderful ale without even realising... that is until you attempt to walk. (Posted on 07/09/2015)

  • BeerMart has it spot on

    Review by Annie

    Looks and tastes almost like a wheat beer, extremely refreshing (Posted on 11/08/2015)

  • Amazing

    Review by Andrew

  • Delicious summery treat

    Review by BeerMart

    330ml bottle from Fathers Day selection. Served cold at home. Slightly hazy yellow, with a proud white mousse for a head. Earthy yeast aroma with a hint of beech smoke. Lemon cheesecake, spicy sweetness, grapefruit flavour, astringent finish. I really appreciated the champagne yeast which I’ve previously felt to be an affectation in other beers. It makes sense in this sparkling little delight. (Posted on 15/07/2015)
