3.45/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- Deep golden color with a thick white head and sticky lacing.

S- The main component is yeast/biscuit, but some lemon aromatics as well.

T- Sweet, pit fruit on the initial sip. More tart citrus as it moves through the mid palate. A bit muddled.

M- Very crisp and clean and the high carbonation offsets the sweet flavors.

O- A very approachable Belgian Pale. Some Saison qualities as well. I'd order or buy this again.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours murky orange with large white head that stays around. Smells of apple skins, floral notes, slight funk, and honey. Tastes of apple skins, slight funk, honey, tart and some grassiness. Medium bodied with spritzy carbonation. A sweet treat that goes well in the summer.

Devotion Ale
The Lost Abbey
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
ABV: 6.25 %

LOOK: Orange colored brew with a nice white foam, leaving little lace before receding to nothing. Clarity is on the low side, looking like a yeasty belgian brew.

SMELL: Belgian yeast, apricot, orange citrus, hay, and a mild funky note as well. Interesting smells and pretty inviting.

TASTE: Brings to the palate some candy sugar, big musty yeasty funk, mild noble style hopping, and earthy qualities. There is a pretty distinct alcohol flavor as well, though the abv is at a relatively modest 6.25%. A lot of barnyard yeast driven flavors without any sourness, just light, chalky and funky. Mild peppery spice, but more or less sweet. Unique.

FEEL: Medium bodied, a bit limp with a soft carbonation.

OVERALL: An interesting take on a Belgian ale here, quite a bit musty and funky. Nothing crazy or too out of place, but compared to its Belgian brethren, this is just a bit above average.

under 10 bucks for a cork and cage 750ml at argonaut on colfax. pours a really pale blonde, brassy color, very cloudy, with a half inch white head which fades to patchy foam on top. smells like subdued spice from belgian yeast and a lot of pale and crystal malt, on the lighter side. less hops in the nose than i anticipated. flavor though is much more hoppy, citrusy in profile and hitting up front and in back about the same. grapefruit zest seems the closest, but its not quite that tart or bitter. a touch of sweetness, and great big yeast flavors round this one out. mouthfeel is very bright on the carbonation with a roughly medium body, made a bit heavier by the sediment suspended within. overall this is refreshing and tasty, but well below the excitement i get from most of their other brews that ive had. still, a nice rendition of the style, especially for an american brew.
