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.
