BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

Had at Nine-Ten restaurant. The body is a cloudy straw yellow with a finger white head. Aromas consist of barnyard straw, peppery spiciness, and some clove/bubblegum. Flavors consist of the same, but also includes lemon. The beer is dry. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, but a kind of watery on the finish.

Serving type: 16 oz can, a Blue Ticket beer from work

Pours bright straw gold with a moderate amount of turbidity. Smells like fresh hay, slight bubblegum, dried grass, along with a pleasant subtle doughy scent. Taste is bright grassy hops, bubble gum fruitiness, along with a solid doughy taste. Feel is light and airy, perfectly refreshing. Overall this is a really good beer with great qualities all around.

Straight up the best Saison on the West Coast. Fantastic recipe. Super clear and super clear finish. Corn helps with that possibly? Nice balance while maintaining the Belgian yeast flavor profile.
I have offered this to Corona swilling lady friends who agree this is fantastic. That's a tough bridge to cross. Believe it.
"Only" scored 4.5 because I think I can homebrew a better copy!

Awesome beer for year around.

Interesting beer. Smells a bit funky, lemon peel. Has the subtle characteristics that are typical in hefeweizens (peppery, banana, clove). It is a refreshing beer and something that I would enjoy drinking more often.
