Lazy Mutt Farmhouse Ale
Review Date 2/15/2008
Lazy Mutt Farmhouse Ale pours to a pale golden color with a light fizzy head formation and a tangy, slightly spicy nose. The palate is mostly about crisp, tart wheat, and that makes this a refreshing enough beer. But there’s some spice, too, coriander coming to the fore most readily. Cirtic orange is evident, too, especially into the finish. The finish is a bit thin, though, and I think it could use more zing, as could the entire beer, really. A little more body, a little more hops, and a little more spice.
At the end of the day, nobody is going to mistake this for a Saison Dupont. But it did surprise me with a little bottle-conditioning going on (there was yeast at the bottom of the bottle), and it is a beer more flavorful than most of the stuff the macrobreweries throw at you.
And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
