COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lacu, a "Beer of the Abbey", boasts an ancient heritage dating to the days when friars brewed this fine blonde bier from secret recipes they guarded for centuries. Today, Belgium brewers use these same recipes to produce Lacu, an exquisite bier made from the finest ingredients: spring water, barley malt, hops, coriander, and orange. Lacu is labeled and corked by hand in order to preserve its superior quality. Uncork the elegant Lacu bottle and you’ll hear the effervescence releasing its subtle and original flavors. The refined taste of Lacu evokes memories of the world’s earliest brewers and their distinctive style. Enjoy Lacu, the "holy grail of Beer".

Bottle: pours cloudy, pale orange with lots of yeast particulates floating around. Yeast, dough, bread malts, coriander and orange on the nose. More clove, citrus, cracker and bread malts on the tongue. Full bodied and rich carbonation. Short, dry finish. pleasant and drinkable if not distinctive for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy yellow/orange with lots of floating yeast. It has a big foamy head that rings the glass as it subsides. The aroma is very typical of the style as is the taste. It has a nice refreshing quality and is quite easy drinking.

Yeasty aroma ,smells a little bit like baked beans to me for some reason!, cork flew out the bottle upon opening, Bready malts on the palate with some spice and slight lemon, not much else going on, I felt like it needed some more estery flavours going on, ends up being a little dull and uninspiring.

Aroma- Has a slight citrous smell to it. some malt, slight hay aroma. Appearance- Poured hazy golden with a big 3 finger white head. Bottle conditioned. Taste- Lemon citrous flavor. Mild maltiness. High carbonation as expected. Very slight spiciness. Overall- Picked it at Hopcity (6 750mL bottles for $13) entirely based on the price. Not bad but not great. Drinks decent.

An Italian take on a classic Belgian style, the first thing you will notice about Lacu is its frothy, creamy, and unyielding head. This hazy golden ale’s aroma is full of lemon, orange, and yeast. Sweet grapes, grassy malt, and a mix of lemon and orange. Hops provide just a touch of bitterness. The 6.3% ABV warms a bit, as well. I also like the champagne characteristics with its effervescence, slightly dry finish, and flavor. Lacu is smooth, creamy, and exceptionally well balanced. It will also take forever to get through it because the glass is half full of foam after every pour. Perhaps not mind-blowing, but my, is that tasty

Pours cloudy golden yellow. Aroma is full of spice and lemon curd. Full-bodied palate has lemon, clove, ginger and floral flavors. Tasty.

bhensonb (12047) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2012
750 c&c from total wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy orange gold with a very frothy 4 finger near white head. Aromas of citrus and yeast/spice. It’s pretty earthy, somewhat fruity, and spicy. Finishes dry. The flavor strikes me as more saison/farmhouse than anything else. Nice stuff.

Cloudy straw yellow color with a tall frothy white head. Funky barnyard aroma with hints of lemon. Tart lemon flavor with coriander aftertaste. Dry finish. Nice beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5250) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a clear pale straw color with a small white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was dryish, tart and lemony. The flavor was tart lemons, faint bread and dryish mustiness. The finish was long, dry and tart lemons. Light to medium body. Ok.

Draft. Cloudy golden color, huge white head with great retention. Aroma of dusty, funky barn attic. Taste is barnyard hay, straw, sour lemons. Tastes and acts like a proper saison.
