Do you ever have that problem where people come to your house and they leave all their beer? No? Just me? OK, apparently I have badass friends.

I decided to try Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace. It has a nice summer-yellow color like amber waves of grain. The bottle claims that it has aromas of lemongrass and I can go for that. There are definitely citrus smells and it makes for a pleasant nostril experience.

It really does taste like a nice, fresh saison. I feel like saisons have a flavor that range from bread made from Fruity Pebbles to cotton candy that’s been dropped on the ground a few times but this beer is more dry and lemony than that. There’s almost a sparkling quality to it. It’s bracing and fruity with many many bubbles. It tickles all the way down! Tee hee!

It’s a pleasant beer and an especially pleasant Saison but I don’t find myself craving more. It’s solid and very drinkable for 7.2% but I don’t feel that I’m crying out for another. It leaves your mouth with an odd fuzzy feeling like your tongue is wearing a felt hat. I can give it a solid recommendation but it’s not going to change your life.

Man, this was sounding like my perfect beer right up until

“It leaves your mouth with an odd fuzzy feeling like your tongue is wearing a felt hat.”

I’ll try it anyway, but that’s weird.

    I think it’s still worth a try and you would probably like it!

    I prefer my tongue to feel like it’s wearing a sensible 10 gallon cowboy hat.

Saisons usually taste like a musty potato cellar full of yeast to me, but I’ll give this a go if I ever run across it. I know it took me a while before I was able to appreciate IPAs so I’m trying to expand my horizons a bit by giving saisons and sours a fair shot.

    Some day I will hopefully be able to give stouts an unbiased opinion…
