SORACHI ACE 2020 USA 10,8%
Karakteristikk: Sitron, Lime, Dill, Te, Koriander.
Sorachi Ace hops are mainly used as a bittering hop, but with their intense lemon flavor and aroma, as well as light dill, tea, and coriander notes, some brewers use them for flavor. These hops are great in Saisons, IPAs and wheats, although the extreme lemon makes them ideal for any summer beer.
Aroma/Flavor: Bold Lemon – all sources stated it’s lemon aroma and taste. Maybe a dill, cilantro, and coconut notes to it too. Slight background oak flavor.
Beer Styles: Probably any beer that would work with a lemon taste. Saison is one that comes to mind. Maybe an IPA with other hops that have citrusy tastes like grapefruit and orange.
Typical Usage: Bittering, but with that focused lemon note – it would probably do well when used later or after the boil.
Developed in Japan in 1984 for Sapporo Breweries, Ltd., Sorachi Ace is a cross between Brewer's Gold, Saaz and Beikei No. 2 male. It is available in limited quantities, however, it remains a popular variety among craft brewers for its unique citrus fruit, herbal and dill aromas.
