COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brilliant and calming sunset; the eternal ebb and flow of waves crashing on the beach: a dog’s smile - all of these the simple complexities of a life lived well. We constructed Lucybelle, a straightforward saison with Brettanomyces, to complement life’s little pleasures. Crisp, dry, and doggone refreshing, we hope Lucybelle reminds you to slow down, relax, and take in the mystery and beauty of being. Sante!

Ibrew2or3 (7960) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2016
Bottle shared at SARA, pours with an amazing glowing totally opaque papery gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet hay, fun fruity funky yeasty notes, soft sweetness and then mild tart notes in the background. The taste starts moderately tart, a bit lemon like, and then running into mild funky yeast and then thin saison like yeasty spices. Wow. Tart forward but restrained. This is light yet deep, crisp and nearly refreshing. Just a solid easy drinking complex saison.

March 27, 2016. Bottle, shared by _angst_, thanks!
Hazy yellow with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is balanced funky brett notes, hints of pineapple, honeydew, lemon, minerals and light spices. Taste is light tart, citrusy and slight spicy. Finish is slightly dry, tart, citrusy, light funky notes, minerals, some juicy orange notes. Light bodied, soft to average carbonation.
Very good, refreshing with balanced acidity and funkiness.

_angst_ (4337) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle received in trade. Thank you troganmi! Pours hazy pale golden with a small frothy white head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly fruity, slightly floral and funky with crackers, freshly baked white bread, lemon juice, pineapple, hay, dry soil, barnyard, minerals, grape skins and lemon zest. Taste is sour, slightly fruity and funky. Mouthfeel is soft, dry, tart, tiny flat and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with cracker malts, citrus juices, pineapple brett and dusty barnyard. Perhaps a bit lacking in carbonation but apart from that a pretty much perfect tart and funky saison. Just the right amount of acidity supported by crisp cracker malts and tropical fruit funk. Lovely...

dpitinga (73) - Mountain View, California, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Pretty sure, Adair Paterno, Esq., knows more about beer than most, if not all, of the throat-bearded homebrewers trying to clone the nation’s whales. And pretty sure this is the nation’s best saison, save for, maybe, the saisons at Seattle’s Holy Mountain. All straw, no barnyard; tastes a lot like good brut champagne.

On tap at Beercraft. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a bit of head. Crisp mild sourness. Some fruitiness, peach. Nice Bret flavors linger.

douglas88 (8019) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2015
750 ml bottle thanks to Mike. Pours a somewhat cloudy yellow color with a small white head when it settles. A big funky citrus nose. The flavor is strongly base earthy, dough-like malts, maybe some pils malt here. A funky ripe citrus note from the brett. Really quite a bit like lemon. Quite smooth. Drinkable for sure. Solid.
