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.

Pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a dry tartness of white grapes. In the taste, starts dry to a small tartness and acidity of a white grape. A small sour bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry white grape sourness in the aftertaste. A small tartness and just a hint of fruit, nice and enjoyable.

A bomber. Poured into a small wine glass.

A delicate, complex brew. The aroma itself is complex, hard to describe and worth the purschase.

A - Poured a cloudy straw color, half-finger dense white head, which quickly dissipates.

S – Barnyard funk, grassy, maybe a little litter box, slightly fruity.

T – Medium to low bitterness balanced with light maltiness, some oak, medium dryness.

MF – Some smoothness.
