IPagan5 (101) - San Marcos, California, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Probably best brewery in US and by my house! This one is unreal with tons of fruity esters and funk from Brett. Vicious vinious olumbrasinbcharacter. Great carbonation light and perfect carbonation. Finishes malty and balanced mouthfeel world class, or universe class.

lusikka (6976) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted malts, raisins and bread. Flavour of toasted malts, sweet caramel, syrup, mild earthiness and mild spiciness. Medium bodied. Dry sweet finish. Nice.

tiong (4574) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 7, 2015
750 ml bottle from Bierkompass

Pours dark brown with a large foamy head. Aroma of ripe fruits, raisins, plums, wood, spices and honey. Taste is sweet, malty, ripe fruity and syrupy with notes of plums, honey and spices. Finish is warming, sweetish and malty with notes of ripe fruits, plum, honey and spices. Okay.

weihenweizen (2086) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle corked and capped 2013 poured into a Trappist glass. Dark brown with medium/small beige head. Aroma is light dark fruit, medium body, medium carbonation, and some small-bubble lacing. Taste is dark fruit (mostly raisins), rosemary, some chocolate, and some honey. Quite a bit of rosemary and it doesn’t work for me.

JStax (3551) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2015
750 ml bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head of foam. The aroma is dry, musty, bretty, chocolate, herbal. The taste is moderately funky and roasty. Bigger bodied beer and soft carbonation. Not great, but oddly acceptable.

Cork and cage into snifter. Smells of dark fruits, yeast and booze. Surprisingly bubbly head for an antique white color. Smells of a quad, raisins, fig and candi sugar. Starts of with sweet raisins, then the rosemary kicks in and balances the sweetness out with some herbal earthy tones. Leaves a taste of tobacco and leather(ish) on the tongue. Call me crazy. Overall an enjoyable beer and look forward to cellaring one.

Kevés olyan gyártó van a sörfőzés tágas világában, melyek esetében az egyes palackok külleme annyira összhangban lenne a beltartalommal, mint ahogy az a Lost Abbey darabok esetén megfigyelhető. Az üvegben lapuló "belgian strong ale" kifejezetten egy olyan típus, amihez a főzde mesterei eszeveszettül értenek, ezt pedig anélkül is elmondhatnám, hogy belekóstolnék a sörbe; az összefüggés kulcsa ez esetben is a dizájnban keresendő. Egy szó mint száz, remekbe szabott palackokat készítenek a kaliforniai zsenik. Kitöltve olyan, amilyennek lennie kell, rubinos árnyalatokat megcsillantó, tengermély barna árnyalatú testére a krémesség mesterfokát jelentő, soha el nem múló habréteg omlik. Tejszínillatú habja alól megannyi belga csemege képe kapaszkodik elő; pirosgyümölcs-lekvár, szilvalé, füge és egyéb aszalványok, selyemcukros édesség árnyalatai telepszenek meg a levegőben. A kategória kereteit szinte szétfeszítő módon robbanak az ízjegyek, enyhén pezsgő édes vörösbor, krémes alkoholok, befőttszerű komponensek főszerepe köré izgalmas összetevők színes hada gyűlik. Az édeskés jelleget a mézes mazsola, kekszes-sütis-lekváros hangulatok erősítik, de a mélység és összetettség foka a legmagasabb minőségbeli elvárásoknak is maradéktalanul megfelel. A vibráló befejezést fűszeresen száraz utóíz színesíti. Egészen kivételes, igazán autentikus alkotás.
