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!

Poured from a 750, into a Rasta Teknu glass. Semi-clear light yellow golden with a small white head. Nose is fruity, peachy sweet, taste is a blend of lemon and brett, just a tad funky. This is good stuff, with a nice dry finish.

Bottle. I think this is batch 1...no label saying otherwise. enjoyed at 44F in HFS stemware.

A - Hazy really muted golden yellow 2 finger head, faded to a small lacing. really nice pour.

S - Nose is interesting. A hard boiled egg / egg yolk, oak, lemon graham cracker and angel food cake. slight fecal aroma but very faint.

T - A lot of doughy lemon zest, bread and yeasty brett funk with lemon and cool whip

M - Excellent body! Full bodied, insanely dry, great bottle conditioning so delicate.

O - This is a really good saison! I love the mouthfeel. wish I could have more.

750 ml bottle shared with the Quebec City crew. Pours a veiled pale straw with a resilient white head. Aroma is white wine, spices, pear, coconut. Flavor is grains, oldish, dusty, woody, pale malt. Finish is lemon, citrus...skynky? Medium body, average carbonation.

Huhzubendah (2522) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle shared by mendvicdog. Thanks Pat! The beer is straw yellow and mildly hazy with a white head. Aromas include lemon, hay, grass, floral notes. Easy drinking and tangy with notes of citrus and Meyer lemons. Mild tartness. Light in body, but not thin. Tasty.

ineedbeer (734) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Poured from a 750 mL bottle. Batch 2. Aroma is fruity and floral with some background phenolics and a light graininess. Light over ripe stone fruit and tropical fruit with faint red apple notes. Light coriander and pepper. Moderate floral notes of rose, yarrow and fruit tree blossoms. Pours a pale straw, yellow with a hint of gold and a fluffy, white head with decent retention. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a faint sweetness with a light graininess. Medium light bitterness and a medium mineral character. Light acidity with medium citrus notes. Moderate notes of over ripe stone fruit with some tropical fruit including pineapple. Hints of cherry pie and barnyard funk. Light pepper notes. Has a hint of salinity in the finish? Mouthfeel is light bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, another great saison from SARA. They definitely make some of the best saisons out there right now and this one seems to be overlooked sometimes. I think I prefer batch 2 to batch 1 for those keeping score.

750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy bright off-white/yellow with lasting wisp of white head that fades to the edge. Aroma is bright lemon zest, hay and Belgian yeast spicyness. Flavor is mild Brett with bright carbonation bringing out the tart and funky characteristics. Light to medium bodied, white wine grassy finish.

Steve_0 (2652) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is slightly hazy lemon peel with a big white head and great lacing. Funky, lemon peel, straw, wheaty, white pepper, basil, grassy, hay, and biscuit in the aroma. Taste is ripe lemons, husky, spice, basil, coriander, citrus, dough, and herbs with a lightly tart and spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. One of those beers that you could drink any day and every day. Awesome stuff!

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Stephen! Hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, grass, hints of grain, hints of earth, slight yeast, hints of lacto. Taste is a mix of white fruit, nice spice, yeast, grain, biscuit, bread, hints of grass, finishing fairly bitter, dry. Very nice, sessionable.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland! Pours a medium golden with slight haze and a couple fingers of fizzy white foam. Flavors of clay, lemongrass, trace of sulphur, lemon pith, lime, smarties candy, unripe pineapple and foggy grain. Really bright acidity and a good rustic malt backbone lead this beer down the path of deliciousness.
