Notes / Commercial Description:
A brilliant and calming sunset; the eternal ebb and flow of waves crashing on the beach; a dog’s smile-all of these the simple complexities of a life lived well. We constructed Lucybelle, a straightforward saison with Brettanomyces, to complement life’s little pleasures. Crisp, dry, and doggone refreshing, we hope Lucybelle reminds you to slow down, relax, and take in the mystery and beauty of being. Sante!

a divine and as my buddy says, transcendent little beer right here, my first one from these guys in quite some time! on tap at the trappist in oakland, what a treat to encounter! its a brett saison, and its exactly the way i like them, subtle, dry, layered, and rustic. this is soft on the wheat malt but still creamy feeling and full, its got very little acidity to it but a light clean citrus profile in the brett, and a wonderfully mature funk, a brett drie type, but im not sure what their culture is exactly, its belgiany and old school, timeless really, with notes of green melon, preserved lemon, wet hay, and gentle white pepper. overall this beer is incredible, the yeast and the grain together, nuanced and intricate, with the fruit notes coming in the finish, mild white wine and dried apricot too, just awesome. the perfect amount of funk meets with jovial effervescence in the finish, and all of a sudden its gone. world class saison here, one of my favorite beers from sante adairius to date! i could drink this endlessly and be perfectly content.

On tap at Beavertown Extravaganza. Aroma has yeast funk, grass, hay and a light aspirin note. Taste is tart with yeast funk, fermented stone fruits and wood bitterness.
