3.76/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 2.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: light and very cloudy, whipped cream head at 1.5 inch holds stubbornly like merengue. Cloudiness is rather disturbing.

N: dirty, light toasted Saison malt strong on the nose, slightly fruit overtone, touch of pepper. Pleasant yeasts.

T: close to the nose. Very nice ale, can pick up the raisins on the taste but not the pepper so much. Very bubbly and light on the mouthfeel, a lingering warmth. (Thick head still holds thru duration)

The appearance threw me, but this is actually a pretty good farmhouse ale. I would purchase and serve to friends.

What a head on this beer! Took me quite some time just to pour. Smells like a dry champagne, drinks like a dry champagne. Don't get much of a raisin flavor to it, but I do get a hint of the white pepper. Overall, I'm enjoying it. It's a pleasant "lazing on a sunny afternoon" kind of beer.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

375ml bottle into snifter. Vintage 2013 printed on bottle.

A: Pours a clear light straw color with a very dense and soft whipped egg-white head that took forever to slowly collapse into a thick mousse of a film. Chunks of rocky laceing were left down the glass.
S: The nose reeks of earthy yeast and herbal, dirty and farmy scents, as well as slightly tart golden fruits, green fruits, golden raisins, and mild white pepper. Strong smelling, unique, and a bit funky.
T: Leafy and herbal notes hit first followed by earthy and musty notes. Fruit brings up the rear and the finish is tingly and slightly sour. I get flavors of damp basement, barnyard, yard trimmings, chopped wood, slight lemon, peach, golden raisins, golden pears, white wine, and green apples. The finish is bready and slightly sweet and the aftertaste contains notes of the white pepper and leafy garden herbs.
M: Frothy tight carbonation bubbles up on my palate. The body is medium, and slightly bitter/sour (not acidic though), and the mouthfeel is airy, light, a tad watery, and fairly smooth.
O: Interesting flavor but a bit off putting at times. Unique, but I probably wouldn’t buy this again.

375 ml bottle was poured into a large tulip glass. 2013 vintage cork and cage. I would recommend something with great grip or a corkscrew to open this sucker. At least you can say it was sealed well.

Appearance: This beer poured a frothy two finger head that reduced to a thin layer. Nice layering from reduced head. It is a slightly hazy pale yellow color with bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing as the beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, pepper, bready malts, white grapes, apples, pears, and golden raisins.

Taste: White grape, apple, pear, pepper, vanilla, bready malts, golden raisin subtle sweetness, and lingering bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, refreshing, a little dry, medium carbonation, a little chewy, and a little bitterness in the rear.

Overall: Pretty solid Saison. I could enjoy these more often.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2013 vintage stamped on the shoulder.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Some chunks settle to the bottom of the glass. A bit of lacing inside.

Smell - Diacetyl, which is really weird. Pear fruit aroma. A little white pepper. Some brett earthiness.

Taste - If I hold my breath and take a sip, I don't get the diacetyl until the very last flavor. Grainy malt with some doughy sweetness. Pepper is much more prominent. The finish is bretty with that diacetyl flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Heavier than I expected it to be. A little sweet. Medium carbonation.

Overall - As always, once I get that diacetyl aroma, that's all I can focus on. Ruined the rest of the beer.

375ml bottle, 2013 vintage, poured into a The Lost Abbey Teku.

First off, the cork was literally fused to the bottle, requiring not only a corkscrew, but also a pocket knife to open, which was a struggle for about 5-10 minutes. Once the cork was removed, parts of it were still stuck to the side of the bottle. The beer pours a very soft straw color, hues of gold, orange and lemon peel, hazy and cloudy with a few noticeable bubbles rising to the top of the glass. A big, 3 finger head, white in color and soapy and frothy in texture rises from the beer and settles nicely leaving huge swatches of lace behind. The aroma is very peppery, yeasty with a big amount of ripe fruit, soft malt, light earthy funk and some tangy citrus. It's not very balanced or remarkable, but complex to the style, it just comes off as a bit harsh rather than delicate. The flavors really accentuate the sharpness, lots of prickly pepper, ripe fruit, don't really denote any raisin character which is unfortunate as it's a signature ingredient, but the yeasty fruit flavors are more on the lighter side. There is some soft funk, earth, but this beer is really dominated by the pepper and its sharpness. The body doesn't really tone that down at all, it's quite carbonated, extremely crisp, and a bit abrasive. The finish is a bit smoother and creamier on the lips, but it's certainly dry and zippy as it goes down.

Verdict: A miss from The Lost Abbey. The pepper really takes over this beer and the body is a bit too much when matched with this flavor profile. I had no trouble finishing a 375ml bottle, but I doubt I'd ever purchase this again.

Kenwood Liquors - Homer Glen, IL

Good luck popping the cork. I had to resort to a corkscrew. The body is straw golden, very pale, when leaving the bottle but appears more like filtered honey when in the glass. There is a murkiness to the body and excessive swirling carbonation. An impressive three finger head easily forms on the pour becoming meringue like and leaving big chunky lacing. This is a great looking saison!

Grassy herbals and orchard fruit intermingle with a spicy white pepper characteristic. Gritty pear and slightly underripe peach kick things off. A deep whiff pulls up white grapes more so than raisins but either way it's deep in the background. The white pepper adds a nice kick to the somewhat spicy esters and buzzsaw dry grassiness. The spice is subtle but noticeable. The grassy hoppiness is bold.

Stride for stride the flavor profile keeps up with the nose. Orchard fruits begin and follow through to the finish. Spicy white pepper kicks up in the middle along with some subtle spicy esters and white grapes. There's a flash of candi sugar like sweetness before the swallow where the grassy bitterness takes over. I'm a fan of the ebb and flow of fruit, spice, and grass.

The body is light and the carbonation is dialed in like some of the best examples of the style. The carbonation is active enough in fact to get the tongue tingling before that buzzsaw of grassy hoppiness cuts through. A dry finish accentuates the white pepper and bitterness.

Saison Blanc tastes like a fresh, old school saison. I don't very often come across the noble hop bitterness in saisons anymore. The spice is well done with the pepper adding bite instead of overly spicy esters that I'm not a fan of. This is an all around delicious beer. I'm highly impressed!

The beer pours a very strong and foamy head that lasts for a long time. Some very nice lacing is left on the glass. The beer itself is a slightly hazy golden straw. The beer smell is interesting. The smell has the usual earthy and bitter smell of hops but the pepper and raisin are fairly prominent. The pepper mixes well with the earthy smell and the raisin add a bit of sweetness to balance it out a little bit. The taste is different. The bitter hops and the pepper dominate the taste and overwhelm the raisin. The sweetness comes out a little bit but not as much as in the smell. The beer has some crisp carbonation and medium bodied. The beer itself feels smooth with a very dry finish. Overall, a pretty good beer. The only that would make it perfect is if the raisins were more prominent in the taste.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 375mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium golden hue with a haze-free body and a moderate effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy ivory foam. Not bad!

Smell: quite sweet with a light level of farmhouse funk. There's a mild fruitiness and a very light tang; not sure how much of that is attributable to the raisins, but it's definitely there. I like it.

Taste: the sweetness is a little subdued in the flavor, which has more of a grainy character and a bigger farmhouse bite. There's a light fruity tartness here which complements the overall effect well; there's also a spiciness which is subtle but complementary -- whether this is the pepper or just the saison funk, I don't know. In any case, it's balanced and satisfying.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a strong carbonation and big creaminess. Kudos!

Overall: this beer is tasty and drinkable. Definitely worth a try if you're a fan of the style.

Corked bottle poured into a pint glass

Hazy yellow with no visible carbonation. Pours a massive, billowy, fluffy white head with plenty of lacings. Looks amazing.

Aroma of grass , citrus and spicy pepper.

Sour,mild bitterness on the front of the tongue. Grassy, citrus which reminds me of a hefeweizen . Can't taste the raisins or white pepper. Gentle sour and bitterness on the finish. Light mouthfeel.

This beer has me all over the place. Looks great but the sourness puts me off.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazed golden/yellow color. At first a large rocky white head forms, and rises to over two fingers. The head gently recedes in a minute with light lace.
S: Earthy, grassy, and light citrus aromas. I think I get some raisins, but it is closer to a dry tannin like grape skin. Finishes with a peppery spice, and a bit of bitterness.
T: A bit earthy, and grassy. Lemon rind, and some white grape skins. White pepper. Green, leafy, tea like that is very astringent and bitter. That lingers on forever.
M/D: A light body with moderate carbonation. A nice puckering dryness that I enjoy. Still a bit on the thin side. Easy to drink. I am going through this bottle in no time.

Not a bad Saison. Very colorful flavors. The strong lingering astringency and bitterness keeps this from being special. Not something I would turn to often, but a nice curiosity every once in a while.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of lemony citrus and peppery spices are present in the nose.
T: The taste resembles the smell, except that there is less of the lemon citrus and some notes of oak.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be pleasant. It has a lot of properties that a dry white wine exhibits, except it lacks the grape-like flavors.

Lovely clear pale yellow - looks like a pilsner. Best clarity on a Lost abbey beer I've ever seen... Quick to lacing.

Hops and funk on the nose. Sweetness too. Honeydew melon, some pineapple, and pepper spice. Really nice.

Grassy, herbal hop punch. Fades into fruity, yeasty notes, medium-high bitterness lingers. Slight bubblegum. Bitter melon, mango. Noble hops.

Good body for the low abv. Finish is bitter and crisp.

This is a really great session beer, and a good beer for a saison lover. Would have it again, and again.

375mL corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a cloudy pale yellow color. A solid pure white head with good retention.

(S)- A bit dry with a grassy spiciness to it. Subtle lemon peel. Ever so slight funk.

(T)- Again, quite dry with a little lemongrass. I get the white pepper now but the green raisins are elusive in this.

(M)- A lively carbonation level. Dry and well balanced. Just not a ton going on; a basic saison, but its obviously well made.

(O)- Its a solid Saison for sure, it just does not stand out for me. Definitely enjoyable though.

Very thick, foamy head. Settles slowly with a definitive dome. Leaves some spotty, but chunky, lace. The color is straw with a bit of white haziness.

Sour cream aroma. A bit of clove and white pepper to the nose as well.

Spicy flavor with plenty of black pepper and hop bittering. Very brief, pale malt start with a touch of sourness. Proper body for the style--highly carbonated. Subtle and short-lived aftertaste.

Got it at Binny's! Served in a DryHop taster glass. Vintage 2013.

A - Giant white foam settles to a creamy meringue-like cap, with glass-coating lace. Hazy pale golden body.

S - Very peppery and phenolic, with musty farmhouse yeast, wheat and other grains. There's perhaps a hint of green grape skins in the periphery; wouldn't guess raisin though. Minimal sweetness.

S - The taste is also very peppery and phenolic, with a hint of aromatic pear skins and grains of paradise. Again, very grain and yeast heavy, with very low sweetness to it.

M - Medium body, with lower carbonation (guess it's all in the foam). Soft texture with a bit of grain to it and and a moderately dry finish. A bit of lingering stickiness that alludes to raisins. No obvious alcohol.

D - It's a serviceable Saison that's very peppery and phenolic. I could have gone for a bit more malt sweetness and some of the advertised raisin though. Not bad, just not overly exciting or memorable.

Lost Abbey already has a few saisons in its portfolio, though this white saison looks new. Coming in a 375 ml corked and caged bottle, which is a refreshing change from the 750 ml format. On to the beer:

Beauty in a glass. Color is pale yellow like a witbier, slightly cloudy, and topped with an airy, thick bone white head which retains extremely well and is sticky. The aroma brings hope for things to come. The white pepper is noticed, also vague fruitiness, and pineapple flesh. I'm ready for this.

Blah. Much too dry, as dry as Death Valley. The flavor whispers of gum, spice, and a strong bitterness. Again, much too dry. That's a shame, because the texture actually feels pleasant in the mouth, with its medium body and very smooth feel.

Sounded like a worthwhile experiment, but the execution was subpar. Much of Lost Abbey's beers are significantly better than this.

a total winner. 9 bucks a bottle at park and company downtown. once you finally get the cork out, it has a hazy golden color, with a robust and long lasting white head, beautiful really. the nose is slightly fruity, but I don't smell either golden raisons or white peppercorns, its two esoteric adjuncts. a fun flavor profile, light and way bubbly, summery, but it has an almost Arabic spice profile, Ramadan or something, but I can only attribute this to the dried fruit complex of the raisons. pepper is on the finish, but its not too forward. wheat malt is thick and sturdy, a big base for a delicate beer otherwise. yeasty in the final sips. pleasurable and bigger than its under 6% abv indicates. worked well with a blackened chicken and avocado sandwich, and has a really clean and bright mouthfeel that makes it better than it really probably is. lost abbey refuses to quit making unique stuff. I like this a lot, and even at this price I would recommend it.

Golden in color with a towering head that persists for several minutes. Plenty of sticky lacing. Vinous aroma, like a buttery, full-bodied white wine. Ripe white grape and golden raisin notes. Very appetizing smell.

Flavor profile is quite dry, a bit peppery. Mild phenols and clove note from the yeast. Very light malt body that's complemented by fruity notes of tart green apple and some white grapes. Carbonation is vigorous but not overly harsh.

If the flavor had more depth and complexity, this would be a great Saison, but as it stands, it's merely a good one. Very interesting for only 5.4%, but the $5 price tag is asking a bit much.

12 oz bottle. 2013 vingtage 5.5% abv.

Appearance: Pours a light golden yellow color with 3 fingers of a white soapy head. Body is very hazy with lots of visible carbonation. Excellent head retention and lacing.

Smell: Spices, grass, pear, big dry spicy yeast character. Green raisins and pepper are minor but detectable if looking for them.

Taste: Big time yeast bomb. Funky/farmhouse yeast, brett, coriander, pear, green apple, very slight breadiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp with high carbonation. Incredibly dry from start to finish. Long lingering yeasty, spicy aftertaste.

Overall: Another solid beer from the lost abbey. Not up there among some of their best beers, and not even their best saison, but still enjoyable and worth a try.

Wow, what a beer! Poured at a good temperature with a colossal, foamy, frothy, billowy, off-white head that settled after a bit and some lacing. Color is a clear yellow with lots of different size bubble trails. Aroma is a full, heady blend of yeast, honey, fruit, spice, grass, biscuit. Probably more, but I might up all night identifying it all. Flavor's like nose, matches the traditional profile perfectly, has a very strange character of being sweet yet dry! Complemented with perfectly carbonic tang and a lingering bitterness. Body/carbonation are spot on. Finish is like flavor, tapers nicely, and true the whole way. Extremely drinkable any time of the year. Absolutely faultless!

This over carbonated mess of a beer left me wondering why Lost Abbey ever made it. The beer pours a massive overflowing head even when carefully pouring the beer. The aroma was very yeasty. The color was nice but the huge head ruined it for me. The taste was like an average Belgium beer. I dont pick up the white pepper or raisins at all. In the end this beer is a bit of a fail for me.

Bottom Line: Cool bottle, sub-par beer.

2013 vintage.

Pours a cloudy and very dark gold color that kind of looks like apple cider with a massive three finger, pillowy foam head that very slowly settles into a thick, lasting cap. Looks over carbonated taking forever to finally settle. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind.

Earthy, funky aroma with strong zesty spices, sweet vinous fruit and pale. Funky farmhouse yeast notes with musty brett, and prominent peppery spice. Hints of pepper, ginger and coriander along with bread, biscuit, apple, pear, raisin and citrus rind. Nice balance of farmhouse funk/yeast, ester-y light fruit, brett and spice.

On the lighter end of medium bodied with lots of bubbly carbonation. Too much so for my preference. Very earthy and musty with nice farmhouse/saison like flavors. I don't know if brett is added but it feels like it with a nice dry and earthy, Orval-like character. The pepper/spice flavor is pretty strong but not as prominent as in the nose. Zesty and peppery with hints of clove, ginger and coriander providing a nice compliment to the earthy funk. Bready yeast notes come in mid palate, giving the beer fullness and some needed balance. Still, I thought that there need a little more sweetness to counter the other flavors. The light fruit flavors found in the nose are minimal here and only come in on the back end. Just a touch of grape and apple cider-y flavor but the spices and funk dominate. Overall, this was a pretty decent beer but the carbonation level is too high for my liking and it comes off a bit one note. Okay but I wouldn't seek it out again.
