Brooklyn Sorachi Ace

In in the past of I have written that I don't really like the Brooklyn brewery, but yet here I am writing another post about one of they're beers. But this here, a classic saison ale (farmhouse Ale) is quit good, not the best but good. Sorachi Ace is not something that is a full production brew, it is sort of limited, and only comes in a 1 pint 9.4 fluid ounce bottle. Sorachi Ace is brewed with they're special Belgian ale strain. They also bottle re-ferment this with Champagne. This brew is 7.6% ABV, but doesn't taste nearly that strong, but close. Now this one is not as easy to find as other Brooklyn beers, but I would not say that it's hard to find. Sorachi pours a cloudy gold color with a nice thick white head. It looks good. Now there are nice scents of hops and small amount of grain and zesty lemon. notes to it. But this here doesn't have really have strong hop scents like an IPA. Just more that some. There really isn't much scent or smells to right about. But that's not a bad thing. The taste is hoppy, but not overly hopped. There is a nice hint of Champagne like taste there, that is nice. But to much Champagne taste and it's starts to become not as good. A beer should be a beer not something else. There is a nice lemon zest to this that makes it a fine hint of sourness but in a good way that is tasty. Sorachi Ace has nice white wine finish that is has a tiny sweetness to it. This brew here goes very nicely with cheese and crackers, very good. Now this is not heavy it is light somewhat drinkable, but not entirely due to it's higher abv percent. To much of this and you'll be drunk faster than some other beers would. Remember that! This is good but it more of a special thing, something you have for a certain time or a specail time, like a celebration or something or that nature. This wouldn't be you everyday beer. But this is good really good for what it is, saison, and not a lot of people know what that is, so there isn't a lot of them being brewed but more that you'd think. This is good for a special day and makes it better. Cheers! Please Drink responsibly!
