Saison van 6% gebrouwen met 100kg ongedroogde verse Sorachi Ace hopbellen van hopboerderij Hoppecruyt in Proven. Sorachi ace is een heel uitgesproken (Japanse) hopvariëteit die bulkt van kokosnoot-, citroengras-, en citrusaroma. Dat we deze keer brouwden met verse ongedroogde hop doet het bier alleen maar ten goede, de kenmerkend houterigheid van Sorachi wordt vervangen door frisse, groene citrusaromas. Droog, dorstlessend, romig op de tong, verfrissend, alles wat je van een goede saison verwacht!

Pours unclear yellow. Small white head. Scent is sorachi indeed, fresh coconut, grassy, milder phenols. Taste is full, bit bitter. Highly aromatic, coconut, bit creamy- yet ends fairly dry. Phenols remain rather mild.

New saison by Dok, probably named after one of its staff members and one of its familiar (and always highly welcoming) faces if you are a regular visitor of Hal 16. Small-bubbled, irregularly edged, snow white, opening head on a hazy ochre-tinged golden blonde beer. Aroma weirdly very perfumey, ladies’ perfume and lavender-scented air freshener, lemon-scented hand soap, margarine, unripe banana, raw potato juice, white bread, sweet red apple peel. Crisp, rounded onset, pear-like esteriness next to hints of apple and banana, stingy carbonation, smooth cereally malt core with a white-bready edge; this perfumey soapiness increases towards the finish, ending very aromatic, like these lemon-scented hand freshener wipes you always get when you go out to eat mussels with fries, or like bath foam with a lavender aroma. Minerally and cereally notes linger through a long, earthy and floral hop bitterness. Bitter, clean, crisp: in itself very likeable on a warm day, but the soapiness is a bit over the top here and the perfumey aspect quickly becomes too much for me – sorry Joeri!
