Saints' Devotion is Lost Abbey's regular Devotion with Brettanomyces added at bottling and it was created for their Patron Saints Club.

There's a nice pop when it's opened. Poured into my Bruery tulip. Appearance is a vibrant, orange/gold with a nice two finger head. Retention is very good, and the soapy lacing on the glass disappears after a minute.

I served this one too cold so I let it sit for a while and the aroma becomes more apparent. There's a distinctive Brett smell when it warms up. Citrus hops with lemon and apricot aromas. A nice yeasty spiciness and grassy, herbal aromas. There is a lot of hop character to the aroma and the Brett fits in nicely.

The taste is initially hoppy. Like the regular Devotion, Saints' Devotion is a well hopped Belgian Pale Ale, but there is an added layer of sour funk. Flavors of tart lemon, spices, and some coriander. Long bitter, dry finish with a final lingering tartness. The beer is not very sour but the Brett is definitely there. The carbonation is very good.
