3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
75 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Rated on 23.07.2009
Aroma has citrus, some earthy notes and hints of grassy hops. Flavour has somewhat soapy citrus, slight tartness, caramel and saison‐like yeasty notes. Also some harsh grain and grassy hops here. A disappointment from LA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from Ryan and Casey Liquors Greenfield, MA. Bottled on 1/10/2012, just over a year old. Light hazy amber like color in my Allagash Tulip. Smell has a light malt sweetness. Flavor has pale malt, fresh cut grass and light pepper spice. A very subtle Belgian yeast note. Held up very nicely after a whole year of sitting. However, a very light sour note does show up in the finish. This happens to be rating number 100 from the State of California!!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 750 ml bottled over 8 months ago. Pours light orange and cloudy with a thick, rocky white head that slowly diminishes and sticks all over the glass. Interesting spiced aroma, yeast, light hops, fruit, bread, grass. Light-medium body, somewhat thin and dry, sticky texture with average carbonation. Moderate bitter dry hop profile balanced by a blend of yeasts. Metallic and peppery with a lingering, extra dry finish. Meh, not my style and a bit pricey for what it is at $9.99

aged bottle pour...didn’t know what I was getting into here as I didn’t plan to leave it sit as long as I did. poured an opaque golden color with lively carbonation...seems solid. aroma is very nice..lots of light fruit..oranges and grape come through in particular. a general yeasty character with some fresh bread. flavor is very yeasty, some malt, similar light fruit, hint of raisin...pretty tasty actually, and a nice change of pace from what I’m used to by lost abbey. palate is again quite lively for the age, but I found this to be an easy drinker. I would say this beer exceeded my expectations...nice beer!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a relatively dry (FG=1.005) Belgian Pale Ale made with peppery Tettnang hops. Three types of yeast, but not much yeast character. Not much aroma. The flavor is mild apricot with a moderately bitter finish. My least favorite Lost Abbey so far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Hops & Pie. Pour is hazy gold with a small white head and gray lacing. Lemon zest, biscuit , orange, light vanilla, light grass, yeast, dough, white grapes, and pears in the aroma. Taste is light banana, biscuit, bread, green apples, straw, lemongrass, and earthy hops with a lightly spicy/bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Crisp, dry, and refreshing; easy drinking, solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a honey straw yellow, almost like a wit beer. Sparse head. Aroma of orange peel. Not very complex, but pleasant orange astringent flavorings. Very nice, light beer (it’s rare to find a Lost Abbey ’light’ beer). Well done.

Cloudy orange with a good sized pale head that leaves some lacing. Some suspended particles. Aroma is sweet orange, lemon, coriander, slight funk. Light mouthfeel, well balanced and fruity on the palate with a subtle tang on the finish. Taste is coriander, caramel, orange juice, honey. Tasty!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle from Sun Devil Liquors in Phoenix AZ, served in a tulip. Pours cloudy amber with a medium-tall, dense tan head. The head remains and leaves lots of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of lemon and orange peel, pale malts, grass and subtle piney hops. The flavour is moderately sweet, with appropriate acidic hop balance. There are prominent spicy notes and Belgian yeast. The hops become a little more prominent towards the end and linger through the long spicy, hoppy finish. On the palate, it is medium-full in body with a smooth, creamy texture and intense carbonation. Overall, this is a nice Belgian style ale with strong citric overtones. The yeast imparts a very nice spicy quality. Another great ale from Lost Abbey! 2012-03-12
