Sorachi Ace

March 27, 2011

I bought a bunch of these because hot damn it’s a hell of a beer. Tons of bubbles give a luxurious effervescence akin to champagne and I mean good champagne. When it was young it had a distinct lemon note, almost like a fresh lemon, amongst other smells I’ve heard described variously from feet to flowers. I opened one the other day after about 9 months or so of aging and was a little apprehensive; needlessly because it was smokin. The bubbles were very persistent and the fruit was more than intact. The savory element had integrated too and there were no longer any heavy fermentation aromas to compete with. The flavor is so on point. The finish is amazing and I think the texture may have improved. I hope they release this one again in bottle someday, magnums actually.
