Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: seaoflament on 02-12-2008

Brewed in celebration of Lent and Easter season, Carnevale is light bodied Saison, using Brettanomyces along with Amarillo and Simcoe hops to generate flavor and depth. Carnevale’s complexity grows with time. The citrus notes tend to wane and the wild yeast rears its wonderfully tasting head.

2008 (first release) did not have brettanomyces.

Poured into my Lost Abbey Teku glass.
A - Pours a hazy golden orange. White soapy head that sticks around and some lacing.
S - Aroma is citrus and yeast.
T - Tastes like a Belgian ale with a peppery bite, a little sour and a slightly bitter finish. No citrus at this point.
M - Dry, light body with a fair amount of carbonation.
O - Very good saison with a little twist. This bottle is almost a year old now and is tasting just like they said it would.
