Brooklyn Sorachi Ace

Beer: Sorachi Ace
Brewery: Brooklyn
Style: Saison
ABV: 7.6%

 Serving Style: Bottle
Glassware: Imperial glass
Drinking Establishment: Chez Wood
Primary Consumer: Kerensa



Sight:  Hazy honey body with a bright white sticky head.

Smell:  Bright aroma…lemon, grass, biscuity malt.

Flavor:  Sorachi Ace hop is a particular beast, lending a clean, grassy flavor. Notes of citrus and cloves as well.

Feel:  Medium body with crisp carbonation.

Concluding Remark:  To say that Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace is aces is an understatement. It is not only perfectly balanced, but the complexity and dynamism of this Saison is surreal. It’s at once bitter and sweet, smooth and sour. Sorachi Ace, a Japanese hop, is noted for its lemony, clean flavor. While it is the presence of the Sorachi that does define this brew, there is still a spicy, herbal taste as well. Brooklyn’s Saison is really extraordinary–one of their best, for sure.
