Lucette 15BBL Batch Series #1: Rye’d On Man Brown Ale
Tap at Sidedoor. Solid offering. Medium bodied, the brown malt tones and rye merge well, good balance. Refreshingly classic, more of a a Brown than a Rye. Medium bodied, quite sessionable. Not mindblowing or extreme stuff, just a solid Brown Ale.

Lucette Slow Hand Stout
Can poured into a glass. Dark black. it did not have the tall, thick head I was expecting. Heavily roasted grain, some chocolate but i am not getting coffee. Good, smooth palate. Some sugar, but the roasted grain quality is stronger than the sweet flavor.

Lucette Shining Dawn Golden Ale
Bottle. Pours light and clear golden with a bubbly, rock two finger head. Nose is fresh yeast and mildly sour grain.. Flavor is quite dry with only the lightest residual sweetness. Pronounced plant-like bitterness beginning in the middle and growing into the finish and well into the aftertaste. I usually like bitterness, but that threw me off a bit - not well integrated. A pretty good attempt at belgian using US ingredients but the hops seem incongruous.

Gravity @ ABR 2015. Golden pour with a small head. Bizarrely strong licorice accents on the nose. Some dry erase marker. Banana. Taste is similarly all over the place. Equal parts licorice, citrus, weird plastic. Light body, soft carb. A total fiasco. Thanks for bringing this, Lucette.

Lucette Shining Dawn Golden Ale
Pint at taproom/brewpub in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Consumed on 8-15-15. Pours a pale blonde to straw color. Mostly clear. Slight haze, but it may be a chill haze. Smooth, creamy, even, nearly white head. Light effervescence. Looks good. Strong, fruity aroma features scents of orange, green grape, and golden raisin. Nice, dry, Belgian golden ale flavor. Apricot. Fruity yet hoppy in taste. A hint of lemon and minerals in the finish. Easy to drink. Lively and frothy in the palate. Light to medium body. Likable beer. Nothing special but solid. This is a decent to pretty good beer; I’m a tough reviewer.

16oz can from Ray’s in Tosa. Root beer colored pour with a tan head leaving streaky lace. Aroma has chocolate, some roast and some caramel. Taste is huge caramel with light cocoa. Medium to full bodied with little alcohol presence. Finishes sweet with light bitterness in the end. Nose was better than the taste, unfortunately, as the promise of the roasty chocolate faded.13.4

Lucette Double Dawn Belgian Imperial Golden Ale
22 ounce bottle from Costco. We had the Shining Dawn before this and this beer is very different. Light golden in color with average carbonation. Small white head. Aroma and initial taste is sweet. Very small bitter finish, almost nothing and it doesn’t linger. Leaves a sweet coating on your mouth. I liked this better than the Shining Dawn and would definitely buy this again.

Lucette Slow Hand Stout
Sienna brown, very dark, with a thin lining of beige foam. Toasted graham cracker, prune, cocoa powder aroma, with a bit of oxidized coffee. There is warmth and depth, though the vague sourness of black malts is distracting, along with a pinch of butter. Malt forward, balanced flavor, quieter on roast and rough character and more toward delicate, tempered sweetness; cookie dough, red fruits, caramel. Soapy, astringent black malts are not entirely absent, and again, quite distracting. Thin but textured mouthfeel, stylistically appropriate. Quiet, bakers chocolate and bread crust finish. Though not suited to my taste, this is definitely a good effort.

16 oz. can, consumed on 1-11-15. Pours dark brown with a moderate to large amount of taupe/tan head. Produces good lacing. Malty aroma features scents of dark chocolate and rich, dark chocolate cake. Charred, malty taste. Quite nice flavor. Tastes like overcooked pie crust. Really nice, likable flavor. Good, charred aftertaste. Light body. Soft and smooth in the palate. Insubstantial palate effects. Overall, this is a darn good stout, especially given that it is fairly low in alcohol content.

Can - Pours black with a filmy tan head. Nose is ashy, dry dark malt with hints of chocolate. Same taste up front--real dry and ashy. Stay dry through the finish, as that chocolate peeks through again. Thin and watery, with mellow carbonation. Just ok.

On tap at 2014 GTMW, pours a clear amber with a thin head, the aroma has a decent amount of citrus and hops with a nice malt backing, the flavor has a hoppy front end with a well balanced finish of sweetness, but just enough, more hoppy and fruit than anything, not bad.
