Brooklyn Brewery. I met some of their representatives at a beer festival in the past, and they were really great people. That makes me really want to love their beers, because I know that they care very deeply about what they're doing and they want people to enjoy the fruits of Brooklyn's labors. So it saddens me that I haven't found one of their beers yet that I absolutely love. Their Brooklyn Local 2 is perhaps my favorite of their products. (Must remember to review that one soon...)
Sorachi Ace is a very interesting beer. It's a Saison style Belgian ale, but brewed with a unique variety of Japanese hops called Sorachi Ace. The Sorachi Ace hops reportedly have a very lemony aroma, which comes through clearly in the finished product.
It pours with a thick, foamy white head that lasts quite a while. The beer itself is amber in color. The flavor is mildly hoppy, reminding me somewhat of the Japanese beer Asahi... just a bit hoppier. There is some Belgian-like spiciness to the flavor, and a fruity/lemony note that comes from the Sorachi Ace hops, I suspect. I like Sorachi Ace, but don't love it.
My rating: 6/10
