notecard_LFULa Ferme Urbaine (LFU) is our unique take on a farmhouse ale.

One of the tastiest Beligian style ales I've had in a long time... and brewed in Pawtucket!

Imagine!

[Original rating 2015-12-30] Draft at Horseshoe Pub, Hudson, MA. Aroma of citrus, straw, bread. Taste is similar, with a hint of spice, black pepper. Dry finish. Really good saison, glad I tried it.

On tap at Cassarino's in Providence (Federal Hill/Little Italy). Not too sour which I liked. Not overwhelming Belgian, a saison/blonde if you will.

12oz can, served in a snifter glass. Pours a darker orange copper body, one finger thick white head, long retention and plenty of lacing. Smell is light caramel, cloves, allspice, a bit of rye, noble hops. Touch of banana bread. Flavour follows, a bit spicy, floral and a bit earthy, caramel, straw, touch of lemon, crackers. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, fairly spicy on the backend, with a moderate noble hop bitterness. Decent farmhouse ale, different than most; the spice is kind of interesting as well.

A wonderful Saison. Beautiful unfiltered copper color that produced a decent head which dissipated somewhat quickly. Highly carbonated, light yet slick mouthfeel. Not overly spiced like some. Does a fantastic job of hiding this 7.8% ABV. Very drinkable. Very well may be my beer of choice this summer.

A: Pours a cloudy yellow color with a massive head that slowly fades down to a decent cap and leaves streaks of puffy lacing

S: Belgian yeast notes full of spice and fruitiness and some lighter grassy notes. Hints of wheat, rye, and spelt as well. Solid

T: Follows the nose, minus some of the yeasty punch. Starts off with the yeast still, delivering the spice and light dried fruitiness and then goes into the complex malty aspect. Get the spiciness of the rye and spelt along with the slight chalkiness of the wheat. Finishes with lingering spice and malt

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A bit chalky

O: A solid American farmhouse ale that does the style justice. Very drinkable for pushing 8% and quite refreshing
