3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at CBC Islington. Orange, light haze, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is yeasty, spice and honey. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is spice, tangerine, yeast and candi sugar. Quite nice overall. Has that Belgian vibe they were looking for.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
75cl bottle, shared with friends. Served in Tulip. Pours golden-orange with white head. Both aroma and taste are candy, yeast, cereals banana and some hops. Very lemony on the palate, similar to a Saison beer. Mouthfeel is medium with decent carbonation. Nothing incredible, regular Belgian stuff is a much better option than this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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...

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.
