"Most Brooklyn beers are made with a blend of hop varietals. As a chef does with spices, we look to get the best qualities of each hop and create a harmony of flavors and aromas. However, a few years ago, our brewmaster ran into a hop unique enough to deserve its own moment in the sun. A large Japanese brewery first developed the hop variety 'Sorachi Ace' in 1988. A cross between the British 'Brewer's Gold' and the Czech 'Saaz' varieties, it exhibited a quality that was unexpected — it smelled really lemony.

"The unique flavor of Sorachi Ace was bypassed by the big brewers, but we thought it was pretty cool. So we made a special beer with it, and added the beer to our Brewmaster's Reserve special draft beer program. Most Brewmaster's Reserve beers are only available for a short time, and then they're gone. But we liked this one so much, we decided to bring it back and give it the star treatment. Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a classic saison, a cracklingly dry, hoppy unfiltered golden farmhouse ale, but made entirely with now-rare Sorachi Ace hops grown by a single farm in Washington. We ferment it with our special Belgian ale strain, and then add more Sorachi Ace hops post-fermentation. After the dry-hopping, the beer emerges with a bright spicy lemongrass / lemon zest aroma backed by a wonderfully clean malt flavor.

"It tastes like sunshine in a glass, and that suits us just fine, especially with seafood dishes and fresh cheeses. It's just the thing on nice summer days and beyond." —brewer
"Hazy golden color. Robust and integrated aromas of toasted fruit nut bread, ginger, lemongrass, lime leaf, and Asian spices with a vibrant dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and long, pear custard, dried strawberry, and spiced roasted nut finish. A delicious food beer." —Beverage Testing Institute

"Weathered but clear golden color. Massive head is produced from the expressive and high level of carbonation. Very aromatic with suggestions of Asian pear, faint jasmine, lavender, hibiscus and green peppercorn. Smoothness is very deep here, which helps with telling the beer's story. Lighter body is fluffed by the bottle conditioning, adding a huge refreshing quality. Fresh herbs with some dried fruit; yeasty and medicinal, cracker maltiness and earthy. Nearly bone-dry finish and not too far off from being an epic brew." —BeerAdvocate Magazine
