Modern Times Lomaland

Posted: September 26, 2016 in Modern Times Beer, Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Modern Times has been making an appearance in New York, so last time I was picking up beer in New York, this came home with me.


ABV: 5.5%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Lomaland is an earthy, rustic Belgian-style farmhouse ale that’s both complex and quaffable. It smells like hay, pepper, and friendly sunshine. Its dry, cracker-like body and lightly-hoppy finish makes it a beautiful compliment to food. We named Lomaland after the brilliantly crazy utopian community that was the first settlement built in Point Loma, the San Diego neighborhood where our fermentorium is located.”

Random: My littlest cat is starting to get jealous when I pet the other cats. It’s pretty funny since he was the most skittish when we got him.

This beer poured with a three finger, thin white head that dissipated quickly. It left no lacing on the glass. It did leave a slight crown was left on top of the clear, straw yellow body with high carbonation visible. The nose was yeasty and had a note of musty basement. There was also lemon curd and old straw. I would characterize this one as rustic. The taste was equally rustic. Unlike the taste, it started with lemon zest and curd first. It went into notes of white bread, crackers and instead of being musty, it had an old dusty note. The body was on the thinner side with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with lemon curd and saltines. A pounder can of this was $3, which broke down to $.19 per ounce. This was a really drinkable saison and had some nice flavors. I would highly recommend this one.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
