4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle at the International Great Beer Expo in Uniondale. Pours a very hazy pale yellowish gold with a white head. This beer was surprisingly devoid of aroma except for a few wisps of malt and yeast. Thankfully a bit more flavorful than the aroma suggests with malt, yeast, coriander, and orange. Mild bitterness at the finish. A bit spritzy on the palate. Light-medium bodied.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a tulip glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with an inch and a half white head that stays around for a while. There’s a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like bready malt, bananas, some tropical fruit and a bit of clove. It tastes like lemon and orange peel, bready malt, pears, and a bit of banana, spice and a floral hop flavor. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it has high but soft carbonation and it’s easy enough to drink. I think it’s a decent brew, it’s worth trying but at $11.99 a bottle it’s not something I’d buy very often.
