Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Lomaland is an earthy, rustic Belgian-style farmhouse ale that's both complex and quaffable. It smells like hay, pepper, and friendly sunshine. Its dry, cracker-like body and lightly-hoppy finish makes it a beautiful compliment to food. We named Lomaland after the brilliantly crazy utopian community that was the first settlement built in Point Loma, the San Diego neighborhood where our fermentorium is located.

If you're a hophead thinking about getting into saisons this Spring, this beer would not be a bad place to start. It has a lot of true to style saison characteristics (wine-type aromas/yeast/slightly sour/funky) , but also has a generous dose of hops. Personally, I'm not doing hops right now, so the 30 IBUs of hops was more than I really wanted, but for an IPA fan, it will probably be appreciated. Overall this beer met its stated goals, and was well-made.

Light golden yellow in color with just the slightest haze. Poured with a moderate, soapy, bright white foam with medium low retention. Tart fruit, sweet under-ripe banana and wheat malt aromas with a hint of pepper at the end. Medium light bodied with acidic medium high carbonation. Tart fruit flavors up front followed by sweet banana esters and bready malt. Tartness and acidic carbonation through the middle to the end. Finished with tapering tartness, wheat bread, light banana and peppery esters, and light earthy hop notes. A pretty straight forward saison. Esters were a bit subdued and the feel was similar to an adjunct lager. Balance leaned toward the malty backbone. Easy drinking and pretty tasty.

Appropriately pale gold, fluffy head. Aroma has some light citrus zest, cracked pepper, hay but with a very faint soapy industrial vein that detracts a little . Taste is good but not mind-blowing - the rustic yeast could be more robust, malt is wheat cracker, a little greasier on the tongue then I like for a saison, needs to be crisper.

L: Pours a slightly hazy golden-yellow, with gushing pure white head. Ample visible carbonation rising up the beer. It looks amazingly fresh and delicious.

S: A nice rustic barnyard funk. Smells of bread, grass, and must with hints of spice.

T: A very delicious saison. Subtle and balanced. Not overly spicy or funky but not too weak in flavor either. Don't quite know how to describe the specifics of the flavor. No particular words come to mind.

F: Medium body. Slightly above average carbonation level.

pint can into Ommegang fluted stem glass
canned on 8/26/17
L- pours a clear straw with a quickly receding huge white head
S- predominantly wheat from the flaked wheat in the malt bill (as stated on the can)
T- crackery malt, some funkyness, that goes down in a peppery finish
F- highly carbonated and light bodied
Overall I don't like the addition of wheat as it throws the beer off kilter
