It’s an unassuming road leading to the priory. Here, off the corner of two intersecting roads, dedicated monks have been making beer for over 150 years. It’s always been a simple life – the kind that requires they brew only enough to sustain the activities of their monastery In the silence of passing seasons, they pray, they brew and retire in a solitary existence behind the sheltering walls. They live a most interesting life. Most likely one we wouldn’t sustain. Nearby, each summer, the trellised fields spring to life as rows of resinous green cones are trained toward the heavens. Rumor is some monks love these hops and being surrounded by budding yellow aromas and the leafy pungent fields inspires them. Since we weren’t sensible enough to locate our brewery near hop fields, we can only offer this blond ale in celebration of our Abbey brethren and their steadfast Devotion.

Draft at monks cafe. Really nice, floral and fruity nose. Great almost creamy mouthfeel. Lots of lacing on the glass. Nice bitterness on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hanoi (709) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle. Nose is is funky, brett, tangerine, hint of white chocolate, brie, potato (oddly), lime, floral. Taste is leather, tangerine, lime, floral, lots of funk, hint of the white chocolate, greens, cereal, milky, doughy, a very dry bitter finish which has citrus rind and the faintest hint of resin. Further investigation yields grass, cloves and a little spice. A very nice beer which is a Saison to my mind.

77ships (6512) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
750 ml. bottle split by 3 @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Presumably some years on the bottle but I cannot find any date so… Deep orange, small white head. Nose is mildly fruity, dull, metallic, sugary with herbs. Taste is sweet milky, sugary, candy cereal, sugar, dough, milky yeast, esters. Milky yeast body. Meh, I would expect way better from Lost Abbey. Possibly a fresh bottle works way better.

Art (2695) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2015
On tap at Monks Cafe. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aromas of fruity yeasty esters. Slight Belgian banana yeast in there. Pretty "beery" beer. Easy drinking.

Mortlach (1548) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 6, 2015
750ml bottle (vintage 2012) shared at Brasserie 4:20 (Rome), thanks Dino! Pours amber with a minimal head. Aroma of honey, lots of oxidation, sponge cake, overripe fruit. Flavour is medium sweet, unbalanced, one-dimensional. Light body, watery, almost flat. Too much old...

ippopotamo36 (1081) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle at a tasting in Rome 4:20 pub on 27/08/2015, many thanks Dino for sharing this. Quite an old-vintage bottle 2012, signs of aging around the cork. Mmmmm. Anyway, pours an orange hazy bright color, tick white cap. Nice. Nose: some signs of oxidation, metal, honey. Not terrific neither that bad. Mouth: thin, easy drinking, a bit flat. I think a bit too old but still a Belgian Ale should age better.

Draft at The Confessional. Poured a light amber, orange color with a small white head. Light fruits, some mild spices make up the aroma. Light pepper, fruit, and a touch of humidor on the finish. Pretty tasty.

Muggus69 (1767) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2015
750mL corked & caged bottle. Bottled 11/9/14 Good loud pop on opening. Pours a hazy orange-straw body, fluffy white head holds. Aroma somewhat subdued - cereal malts, husky, hay-like, distinct yeasty spice; peppery, dough, minerals; Saison-like. Floral hops, touch of citrus. Medium bodied, lively slightly creamy carbonation, drying texture good length though. Rather pleasant on the palate - cereal grains, bread dough, white pepper, earthy spice, grassy, floral hops. Dry finish, lingering bitterness is lifted but well balanced. Something really enjoyable about this beer - not sure what really, but everything works nicely; has a certain rustic charm about it too.

procraste (381) - FRANCE - AUG 7, 2015
Relation compliquée avec celle-ci. Dégustée un peu fatigué en soirée alors que je ne pensais rien ouvrir. Déçu au départ: trop de gaz en bouche, pas assez aqueux, arôme trop simple et trop ténues, délicats ... Pour au finale, en fin de compte, l’air de rien, finir séduit par la légère amertume et le côté très aérien, de cette bière qui sait ne pas en faire des tonnes et caresser gentiment le palais de celui qui s’y adonne ... A déguster une nouvelle fois pour mieux creuser l’affaire donc ...
