Petschen's and picked up a few brews to fill the fridge. Sorachi Ace is a favorite that I haven't had in a while. In fact, in my opinion, it's one of the best beers from Brooklyn Brewery. Bittered and dry hopped with the rare Sorachi Ace, it's a showcase single-hop beer.
Frothy, stark white head settles a bit on the second and third pour, then falls to a thick lace. Sun gold colored saison sparkles in the glass from a continuous effervescence. For me, the nose makes the beer with a clean lemongrass, citrus and underlying sweetness like Hawaiian bread. An assertive and lingering twang on the tongue from carbonation and a blended hop/yeast spice combines with lemongrass and a slight pepper note through the dry finish. Lemongrass turns to tart lemon as it warms.
Love this hop. Drink this worthy beer.
