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!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy yellow body. Nice white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Peppery and lemony. Pilsner malt. A little brett.

Taste - Lots of pepper again. A bit of lemony tang. Pilsner malt again. Bretty and dry in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light and highly carbonated. Minimal tang.

Overall - Lacks complexity, partially due to the malt bill. Still pretty tasty.

Big thanks to nicks6217 for sharing. Reviewed from notes.

Clear and bright piss-pear colour with a moderate but persisitent.

Nose shows lifted funk, sharp and perky with clean floral and honey sweetness.

Wild herbs, pear, spiced honey, grapefruit and lemon zest amidst a backdrop of musty funk.

Very busy acidity and lively carbonation on the front end, before a dry and surprisingly earthy finish.

Assertive but well contained Saison. Good balance between dry funk and focused acidity.
