451. Blue Lobster Lunatique Homard
This beer was brewed for the opening of WHYM Craft Biere Cafe in Portsmouth. Love it when two of my customers get together to do great things. This is a saison brewed with honey and tangelos which sounded very interesting.
I tried the beer at the brewery while chatting with the brewer David and took home a couple of 750s, one for me and others to share with my Maine beer friends. The beer has a great bright orange color with no head or lacing. Lots of things happening with the aroma with some earthy hops and other things that I can’t quite place. The taste and mouthfeel are where this one excels. Plenty of citrus notes and sweetness from the honey.
This beer had a lot of things going for it being a saison with a fair amount of citrus flavor, just the right amount of sweet and a very clean finish that leaves you wanting more. I hope this one comes around again and is not a one time thing.
Pros: Taste and mouthfeel
Alcohol Content: 8.4% ABV
