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.

750. Classic saison aroma wih plenty of funk. Outstanding flavor depth. Balanced fruity but not too sweet. Funky in all the right ways. A true pleasure.

Gold with good, foamy, white head / Elegant nose of hay, brett, and banana / Medium body, soft, creamy carbonation, a touch on the malty side, with long, bitter finish / Flavors of fresh banana, hay, biscuit, violets, white pepper, and a hint of manure / Great stuff.

SPDickerman (941) - Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2013
2012 Vintage. Pours pale golden yellow with a large soapy white head. Smells like hay with a bit of citrus and solid barnyard funkiness. Taste is a bit dry with some mild bitter citrus and hay funk and a subtle touch of sweetness behind it all for balance. Medium-bodied with a crisp texture and active mouth-carbonation, Lost Abbey Carnevale finishes wtih a drying, almost woody sensation.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2010 Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with James. Pours clean orange golden, with a thin, wispy, lacy white head. Aroma of corriander, sage, clove, lemon zest, slight funk, and traces of yeast. Medium bodied with a mildly spicy, crisp, refreshingly smooth and thirst-quenching palate. Finishes a bit dry and florally. Excellent saison. One of my all time favorites that never lets me down. Hail Lost Abbey!

Golden color with small head. Bretty, lemon aroma. Wow, nice flavor from the hops complementing the fruity yeast. It’s wine-like in some aspects. So light-tasting yet mouth-warming. It’s better than the best cocktails. Amazing beer. Score one if you can.

Wow. This is lovely. A great impression on Saison. I really enjoy the extra hop factor. Poured from bottle - thanks beermerchants - into my ESB glass from Fuller’s. A lovley light creamy unbalanced head. A gorgeous blonde texture and lots of bubbles escaping to the top. Can detect a lovely malt texture with citus hops, marzepan, caramel and a similar mouth feel to melted chocolate. I can feel dry fruits too. I really dig this impression of a Saison. Thank you Lost Abbey. Wonderful effort.

Poured froma 220z. bottle into a over sized wine glass. The color is a clear gold with about two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing. The smell is pretty funky. Some green bean or vegtable flavor in the nose. It has a yeast flavor that mixes with some slight fruit flavor as it sits and breaths. The taste is sweet at first with a smooth with some nice dry fruit flavor. I have a white grape flavor that is followed by a slight green apple flavor. There is a slight rasin flavor as well at the end. The feel is a pretty easy drinking feel to this beer and is slightly acidy but very pleasing. The first Lost Abbey beer I have had and I am very happy with this experience.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Had at St Stevens green with Katie. Pours cloudy gold with a off white head. Aroma of yeast, spices, and citrus. Flavor is similar. Well balanced. It has a sweet fruit flavor but also a little bit of funk as well. Solid Saison though.

Caged/corked. Very light colored beer, bright and golden. The aroma is vaguely citrusy and yeasty. This drinks with a subtle finesse that’s hard to find ... easy to drink for even the most persnickety drinker, yet with a complex and enticing balance of spice, fruit, yeast ... Very well done.
