From BeerAdvocate Magazine #85 (Feb 2014):

Rustic, Lemony, Earthy, Yeasty

It was hard to resist drinking straight from the can, but the meringue-like fluffy pour was worth it. A lovely rustic, farmhousey ale, with a lemony edge that pierces through earthy, peppery, hay, wheaty, green banana and yeasty flavors. It’s a bit too yeast forward, but Lomaland easily rivals many traditional Belgian Saisons.

Tastes more like a Belgian ale than a Saison. (45 characters)

Appearance: Way too much foam, at first, until I settled into a very gentle pour; a huge head covers the clear golden liquid and leaves strands of lace

Smell: Bready and herbal, with fresh cut grass, white pepper and cilantro tones

Taste: Bready, up front, with the grassy edge developing; cilantro and white pepper emerge in the mid-palate and lead to a rather herbal finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: More of an interesting lawnmower beer than a Saison, I am afraid

Thanks, lincolnbeard, for the opportunity (558 characters)

Saisons are generally hit or miss for me. This is a hit. Maybe it's because it's bordering on a hef or because of my fickle tongue, but, overall, I like the slight funk, spicy kick, and lingering bitterness. Quality stuff that's worth trying. (242 characters)

A: A clear, almost fluorescent, golden yellow.

S: Yeast funk, pepper, white grapes, and a lot of sweetness.

T: The flavor is what you might expect from a pilsener brewed with a Belgian yeast. This is more like a Belgian Golden Ale or a Belgian Strong Pale Ale than a Saison.

M: A bit syrupy.

O: I've liked everything else I've had from Modern Times so far. This is by no means a bad beer but neither my style nor what I was expecting. (438 characters)
