COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lomaland is Belgian-style saison thatís both complex and quaffable. In keeping with the farmhouse tradition, Lomaland is brewed with barley, wheat, and corn, giving it a complex and delicious malt body that pairs beautifully with food. Czech Saaz hops are added in the kettle to give it a lightly grassy, peppery note and just enough bitterness to cleanse the palate. Itís distinctively rustic, earthy aroma comes from the unique blend of traditional Belgian yeast strains (95% Dupont/5% Westmalle) we use to ferment it.

16oz can pours a golden color without much head. Overpowering hops and missing some funk.

Got in a trade with RaulMondesi. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright golden color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, straw, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good big. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice saison style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. It did feel like a cross between and Belgian pale ale and saison; but was still a very enjoyable offering.

An excellent example of the US take on the style. Fruity/spicey aroma leads to the same flavour to start but with a hint of bubblegum and a subtle bitter finish.

dresden (998) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Pale straw yellow but hazy with a small white head. Little spicy yeast aroma. Flavors are light and less of a saison than a rather plain but totally refreshing Belgian pale, some banana and slightly tart flavors going on. Nice.

madvike (2974) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Can - Pours lightly hazy golden with a filmy white head. Nose is white pepper, a bit of tropical fruit, and dry yeastiness. Taste is the same--peppery and bitter, with dry pale malt and a light fruitiness. A bit astringent and spicy. Fluffy, soft and thin.

Can. Almost clear golden liquid with small to medium white head. Aroma of white pepper, earth, grain, light banana, bubblegum and light leaves. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of grain, light banana and floral hops. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty good.

Surprisingly pale yellow, this beer pours out of the can hazy and clean; the surface is topped high with a soft, linen-white head. The head is huge, and is quite full of the beer; wet and sticky, it clings to the sides of the glass as I drink down. An aroma of hay and a seemingly docile Belgian yeast come up from the glass, but the first sip brings a complex and flavorful liquid full of honey and spices. Carbonated appropriately, this is a quiet but tantalizing; refreshing and tasty brew. I would suggest to anyone that does not have a taste for Belgians, that this is an excellent introduction to the style. The palate is comfortable, dry; the taste is not sweet, and not bitter, but a balance between those sensations that just allow the beer to flow over your taste buds without attacking them. Pure and simple, I like this a lot. as light as it is, I didnít expect to enjoy it as much as I am, but I would definitely make this a go-to on a hot summerís day! (or a cold winterís night with the wood stove blazing!)

Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a hazy light amber witn a thin white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is dry mineral aspirin citrus. The flavour is acid citrus bitter with a dry mineral citrus palate. Light bodied with average carbonation.

Saison Sunday! Pours a very pale gold with a bit less effervescents than I like in the style. Nose and taste are very spicy. While I generally am not a big fan of overly spicy Saisons, they actually pull this one off fairly well. If this beer was available locally it would be a regular in my fridge.
