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!

I think anyone who is on the fence about Saisons needs to check this out. It's that good.

Handsome can and package design!

A: 3.5 - Very cloudy amber with a low head.
S: 4.0 - Light grassy hops, pungent yeasty phenols, some nice fruitiness (appleskin).
T: 4.0 - Moderate bitterness (with well-attenuated body) makes for a dry start, peppery phenols rounding out the taste with a light tannic fruitiness.
M: 4.25 - Nice body, very effervescent and light despite the strength.
O: 4.0 - Very solid saison. Would buy again.

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.
