Brooklyn Soriachi Ace Debuts Today!

Quick recap of the Brooklyn Brewmaster’s Series.  Cookie Jar Porter. Black Ops.  Dark Matter.  There are more, but those are a few that have hit Atlanta.  Next up – Sorachi Ace.

Sorachi Ace is a farmhouse ale, brewed with a rare unique hop Sorachi ace.  It was developed in Japan at Sapporo Brewery in 1988.  Ace is a cross between British Brewers Gold and Saaz hop varieties.  This hop is very lemony in smell and flavor.  Unlike other offerings by Brooklyn, Sorachi Ace features only this hop.  Ace is unfiltered, uses a proprietary Belgian yeast strain, and is dry hopped also with Sorachi.  Sorachi Ace is refermented in the bottle.

Ingredients –

Hops – Oregon Grown Sorachi Ace

Malts – German Two Row Pilsner

Yeast – Brooklyn grown Belgian

Taste Expectations – Lemon zest, lemongrass.  Expect floral tones, with some spice and fruit.  A nice clean saison.
