Notes / Commercial Description:
The workday is done, and it's time to unwind...
notecard_LFULa Ferme Urbaine (LFU) is our unique take on a farmhouse ale. Influenced by the Belgian saison style, LFU features a complex blend of German hops, pilsener and pale malts, wheat, rye, oats, and spelt. The beer pours a hazy straw color and delivers a spicy, dry finish. So raise a glass and enjoy!

Pour is lightly hazed golden amber with a tight white head. Nose is heavy candied sugar, strong stale grain, faint spice and some lemon and golden fruit. Taste follows suit, lots of sugar, candied sugars, lemon, light grain. High carbonation, smooth body.

Tried this new local beer here in RI. Was very tasty. Want to try it when I haven't had any other beer before this.

Nothing special about this beer, solid but not very exciting or interesting.

A - Hazy, straw gold body. Medium white head fades quickly and leaves moderate to light lacing.
S - Fruity esters, pepper dominates.
T - Light malty sweetness, white pepper spiciness, banana.
M - Medium, which I think is unusual for the style, but then again this is a 7.8% Saison, so I suppose I would expect it to be a bit heavier. ABV is well-hidden.
O - I'm used to Saisons being a bit lighter, but knew it had to be different given the ABV. This is a good ale, worth seeking out, but I wouldn't return to it.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

The color is a yellow/gold with two and a half fingers of foamy white head with a soft lacing left on the glass. There seems to be lots of bubbles in this beer.

The smell is boozy like an American lager with some slight hints of banana and figs in the nose.

The taste is light with a sugary dough flavor that is a pick to take in a first. The sweetness sits for a bit on the tongue for a bit making this a slow sipper. There are some interesting dry fruit flavors that appears after each sip. There is a touch of cherry and hints of melon.

The feel is a light bodied smooth drinking beer with some interesting character that keeps me involved. The flavor is better then expected and is very pleasing even after the beer is gone.
