Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a hazed orange-yellow with very active carbonation jets producing and maintaining a billowy 3 inch white head. Faint lingering lacing. Beautiful brew.
S: Sweet and light citrus (?lime and grapefruit), dry minerals, soft brett funk, melon, white pepper, and just a faint hint of soft pine. Nuanced and nicely complex.
T: Lime and white pepper hit first followed by dry earthy minerals, soft grapefruit and pine, spicy bitter hops, and a mild toasted malt backbone. With warming, a note of honey emerges.
M: Light body. Nicely effervescent. Bright citrus and moderately sweet up front, then turns drier in the mid-palate and finishes dry and mildly bitter. Mildly spicy throughout.
D: Outstanding drinkability. ABV is spot on. The complexity keeps it interesting and yet it all holds together extremely well.

Pours golden yellow, slightly hazy with an orange hue.

Nose boasts hay, lemon zest, pepper and some brett character.

Much fuller in body than I anticipated. Very smooth and almost silky. The Brett cuts through and adds a dry finish. Lovely zesty hop character to go along with the Belgian yeast character.

I am really loving this beer. Absolutely delicious throughout. Drinks so easy for being full bodied and 6.6%. The Brett must helps this with drying it out. Nothing cloying or sweet but just a touch or vanilla coming though.

I cannot wait to try another from the lost abbey

Purchased in an Atlanta bottle shop and shipped home in my luggage. Corked and caged – almost impossible to open. Poured into a tulip.

I was waiting for zing or a bite that never happened. This beer starts with optimism but that vanishes as this beer fails to fully deliver. A refreshing and very juggable beer. A Belgian pale ale that could have been brewed to compete with a pilsner. I call this beer “Bret Bud.” 3.75

A – Pours crystal clear but slightly hazy in the glass. A light golden color with a half-finger white head that dissipates almost immediately (-). Some light lacing. 3.75

S – Some funk from the bret, some sour notes as well. Maybe a bit of orange. 4.25

T – Some minor tartness, malt, light hoppy bitterness in the finish. 3.75

MF – Smooth light bodied with a dry finish. Almost no aftertaste. 4.5

3.53/5  rDev -8.8%

A: Hazy golden body with an off-white head and small a remnants of lace with above average head retention.
S: Aromas of champagne & barnyard funk.
T: Somewhat fruity, green apple flavors finish dry and lightly tart.
Brettanomyces presence at end is distinct and welcome.
M: Dry and refreshing brew.
O: A memorable beer due to the addition of Brett. Drinks like a saison.
