3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle served in a pint glass. Light straw colour with a massive white head. Aroma is very hoppy and funky. Taste is juicy hops and initially quite a severe sharpness which disappears after a while of breathing. A little watery for a Lost Abbey beer and a massive disappointment to me given the wonderful Avantgarde and my love of American hoppy beers - luckily for me the Brett is not very evident however, some people may be disappointed by this.. This just falls a little flat and I expected much more from this brewery.
