Picked up at a local market; big boy bottle cap n corked. Opened that night.

Poured gently into a pilsner (all i had) and the head roared up to 2 inches, it held stubbornly opaque cream/lightly toasted marshmallow throughout the drinking. Carbonation stayed active to the sight glimmering through the sea of foggy gold.

Sweet maltiness, autumn spices on the nose. Clean and pleasant scent.

Tongue not far from the nose, malt first and then an apple fruit like spice. Those autumn spices on the nose are warm nutmeg on the aftertaste. The alcohol is there, as it should be. Aftertaste remains fruity, still apple. Mouthfeel is a little thick for the flavor, but it's not poor, the carbonation keeps it lively.

Might buy this again, I believe this would be good with food. Wishing I had a nice think pork chop right now :)

A: pours a cloudy gold yellow orange, lots of head. Served in tulip glass
S: lots of funk, pepper, fruit, grassy, spicyness. Very aromatic
T: funky, spicy, with a fruity sweetness. It's very similar to the carnevale ale by LA, but has a little more spice. Very dry
M: very carbonated, on point for saison
O: awesome saison available year round from LA, tbh I skip this over for other lost abbey beers, I think that will have to change as this is awesome saison and cheap compared to other la stuff
