Notes/Commercial Description:
New Belgium Brewing and The Lost Abbey brewery from San Marcos, California have a shared passion for a variety of things, not the least of which is the wild Belgian yeast brettanomyces. So they decided to join forces and collaborate. Lost Abbey Collaboration is brewed simply with pale malts accompanied by Target, Centennial and Sorachi hops for a hint of citrus. Focusing on their mutual respect for the ingredient, the spotlight shines on the brettanomyces, where a full brett fermentation offers bold pineapple overtones and funky, sour edge. The beer is a shining, golden shade and is warming and dry.

3.1/5  rDev -6.3%

Poured from 22 oz bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a hazy lemon yellow with high carbonation producing a 1/2 inch white head. Good retention.
S: Farmhouse funk and bright citrus notes courtesy of the brett. White pepper and hint of Belgian spice.
T: Whoa...nose dive here. Watery and weak. Nothing like the aroma...which was fairly pedestrian to begin with.
M: Light body. A bit oily feel. Nothing special here either.
D: Not a very good offering here. Lost Abbey and NBB produced a bastardized beer. Not recommended.

On tap at Max's (from notes)

A: Slightly hazy blonde.

S: Yeasty, funk, and farmhouse.

T: Lots of farmhouse. Heavy and thick. Eh, ok. Horse blanket with a fair amount of saison flavor.

M: Decent carbonation with light bubbles.

O: Ok, but not at all what I was expecting.

3.54/5  rDev +6.9%

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours a hazy dark golden with a 2 finger white head. Thick wall with trails of lacing remain.

Sweet honey, bread dough, faint citrus, light funk.

Light sweet pale malts, bread and light citrus with very minimal funk.

Ok beer, that can't decide what it's supposed to be. Is it a Belgian golden with some Brett or was it supposed to have more funk and sour notes?
