3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with minimal to no head. Aroma has faint mustiness, earthy, floral with lemon and faint banana. Taste was slightly spicy with some pepper, yeast and light barnyard flavors. Some very light floral and citrus hop flavors are present as well as a touch of banana. Smooth, slightly thick body with moderately low carbonation and a slightly dry, mildly astringent finish.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The smell is fruits, yeast, hops, slight funk and nice. The look is golden in color, clear, and has a white head. The taste is fruits, rustic, hops, and good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours splendidly the color of earthly fire.l Golden with an orange hue. Pastel and lit from deep within itself. It glows softly with a soft head of white foam that falls very slowly to a rocky cap and ring, a layer on top and leaves scads and gobs of lace in rings and sheets all over the glass.
Nose is perfection. Fresh wet hay. damp and earthy. Brett and barnyard. Dry and funky. Subtle sweetness from the light grain and a nice light bread. Rich with yeast and a few stone fruits to tempt with their sweetness. Citric and tart, Subtle clove and pepper.
Taste is just what you want when you say to yourself I think i want a saison today. it’s tart with a rush of citrus to greet the palate. Stone fruit sweetness , dry lemon grass, and light honey just behind that. Then, some bitter and pungent herbs. Oregano comes to mind. Delightful! It makes you want to exclaim! Grain that is light but raw and unyielding. It keeps it’s wholeness. Soft creamy body that is firm and crisp and dry. Clove accents the stone fruits and the aftertaste is bright and light and seemingly unending.
Oh! This is one handsome beer. it tempts your eye and then sates the palate with a subtle complexity that is made up of herbs and lemon zest. Drinks forever and then it’s done. Just like summer.

This was a big let down.
First smell I got from this was corn, a big adjunct smell. Then I got some spices. Pours a nice golden yellow with a foamy head that dissipates quickly. Definitely not a fan of this one. Haven’t had a plain boring saison like this in a while. Nothing complex here and nothing that would bring me back to buying another bottle. Did not finish my glass. Very unfortunate as I was hoping for more form Lost Abbey.
