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.

from Erzbierschof - slightly hazy golden beer under a huge white foam; a fair presence of bretts, notes of old apples, pear, wood and barnyard; medium-bodied, lively and gently acidic, some bitterness and long fruity and woody notes in the finish - complex and refreshing

Savage_Night (57) - California, USA - MAY 26, 2015
Pours hazy golden orange with a nice white head. Head retention is good. AROMA: peaches, tropical fruit, funk, Brett, slight hop bitterness and light peppercorn. TASTE: tropical fruit, peach, sour tones, Brett funk, sweetness and peppercorns. Nice crisp finish and slight tartness/bitterness as an after taste. My aroma and flavor notes might be off since I was at a bbq. Definitely enjoyed it just wish I could give it a proper rating. Will revisit this amazing brew soon.

ABT_S54 (256) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
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.

jflopsu (767) - New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2015
Pours yellow with heavy white head. Has a strong citrus, wheat and yeast aroma. Has a strong citrus, dry wheat, yeast, light fruit, and some spices and pine. A very dry aftertaste.
