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.

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a hazy yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head that lasted a little while, receding to a large puddle and collar of residue, which had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of light grain and cereal malts, herbal hops and a funky Brett yeast with notes of citrus (orange and lemon), and a hint of spice (coriander and clove). The taste was a little sweet and a tad sour with a hint of citrus at first and then became rather hoppy with a slight bitter lemon peel presence and a mild peppery spice ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a hoppy slightly sour peppery taste left to settle on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body with a smooth dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall a refreshingly different Saison, with a nice sour spicy taste that had an outstanding blending with the hops...

I love the taste, it’s perfect but this is expensive. Balanced flavor of this Saison 750ML bought in Sweden (Systembolaget). Not too sharp or too quiet, for us who do not hunt hops or sour. The downside is that there are equivalent Saison for cheaper price. If you take a high price, you have to deliver at a high level, ideally have a unique flavor. For me this is good beer with full body, fruit, apple, citrus, but not worth the price because there are loads of similar tastes out there.

Svår definierad doft, piggelin och brie doft. Grumlig i färgen. Lost Abbey gör en inte besviken men överträffar inte förväntningarna. Det var en rejäl bonde som drack denna. Man känner tydligt Brett i karaktären. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

markducommun (190) - Wilmette, Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Yellow gold, super cloudy. Light white head. Lemony, some honey sweetness, banana, clove. Touch of bitterness upfront, slightest touch of sourness, some sharper sweetness. Mid-light body, pretty acidic, slight oiliness. Awesome beer. Very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from systembolaget. Fresh and light with a nose reminding of citrus and fruits. Pours hazy orange with a porous white head. Very tasteful with a fresh and strong taste of fruits. The palate is light and easy together with a full body. A good beer which delivers. Very pleasant and drinkable.
