29 Apr Day 21 (#30Beers30Days)
Today we’re venturing into Saision territory with the Brooklyn
Sorachi Ace (7.6% ABV, NY). Saisons were first brewed in farmhouses in the French speaking region of Belgium. They were brewed to help hydrate farm workers during the summer months and were refreshing and low in alcohol content.
This farmhouse Saision is perfect for a hot patio session: crisp, light, spicy. It’s unfiltered but golden with good carbonation. It’s made with Sorachi ace hops which are grown in Oregon but were first cultivated in Japan. The lemony taste and aroma they lend make them perfect for saisons which are typically tart and mildly sweet.
The Brooklyn variety is fruity and citrusy in both taste and aroma. The hops are delicate and easy.
Short story: I love this beer. Easy A.
Is it getting lame that I love nearly 90% of the beers I’ve reviewed?Unless its a crappy beer, it’s hard to find one I don’t like! Happy drinking!
