This is an interesting line of beers. I like the presentation with the old school corked bottle and really cool artwork on the label.

After all I had read and heard about these "Lost Abbey" ales, this one didn't disappoint. The pour was good and the head stayed on top all the way down the glass. The color is burnt orange with a slight haze from the yeast.

The taste is good, but not quite as balanced as I thought it would be. The hops taste very fresh and green, but almost overwhelm the subtle malt, which is very interesting in that I pick up notes of figs and other fruits in both the smell and the taste. I love the strong hops anyways, as they seem to fit into what a beer from 400 years ago might taste like (didn't hops help preserve the ale??).

Overall, very drinkable. I love bottle conditioning as it seems to make the mouthfeel turn creamy, almost smoothing out the ale. I'm intrigued in these ales and will have to try all of them now.
