COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2011
Bottled. Cloudy straw yellow with almost no head. Sweet pineapple aroma along with citrus, fruits and spicy yeast. Good lively, prickly mouthfeel with pretty much sweetness and suggestions of sorbet pineapple. Didn’t really find any Brett here.

spilledpint (352) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Notes from 12/23/2010 750cl bottle from Binny’s Chicago Ar: Brett is complimentary - not overpowering. Orange rind, pineapple. Nice bit of barnyard funk. Ap: Pours hazy blonde-orange, little head, little lace. T: Light citrus and brett sweetness up front. Kiss of hops and barnyard on the finish. P: Soft carbonation, medium body. O: Love this style, and this is a great offering.

09 vintage. Pours a deep golden color with a decent sized off white foamy head. Notes of apple juice, canned pineapple, yarn, lemon rind, dough, honey, and spice. Creamy mouthfeel decent length finish.

BeerMePodcast (96) - Palm Desert, California, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Nice, tight carbonation (not the fizzbomb that the Inferno is) with a medium head that lasts. Nice funky, somewhat spicy and citrus-sour aroma. The barnyard flavor comes out a little more in the taste with a great, warming, spicy finish with a touch of helping bitterness. Very nice and more depth than I was expecting for a saison.

AskForJenny (1061) - Ontario, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2010
0.75l - Lively carbonation for Lost Abbey, hazy orange liquid. Bretty nose, but less so on palate. Yeast was dominant flavor. Solid

nuplastikk (5612) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2010
750ml bottle. 2009 bottle drank in late November 2010. Murky orange-tan color. Fluffy, foamy off-white head. Floral barnyard hops and some mild funk, nails the aroma. Has aged quite nicely. Sour and funky, with some oddly pungent yeast and malt tones. Not really authentic tasting, but still pretty nice. The Brett isn’t super apparent, but certainly adds some nice complexity. A really nice beer, well done.

Golden of color with a nice off white head. Nice aroma of malt, coriander and Brett. Flavor of sweet malt, spice and some Brett.

kennydiaz (355) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Pours a nice golden color with a lot of carbonation. It has a nice sour banana taste a little earthy with hints of citrus.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Pours a slightly hazed golden straw color with a medium white head. Aroma is pepper, wild yeasts, grass, lemon, zest, wheat, coriander. Flavor is a light funky brett, spices, lemon zest, grass, wheat, very enjoyable and has appropriate carbonation. I prefer this over the non brett spiked version for sure, really pleasant beer.
