COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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. Itís always been a simple life Ė 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 wouldnít 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 werenít 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.

Pours light yellow with white head. Waited for more intense aroma, but it wasnít there. Tastes like normal ale, nothing special. Too expensive for this kind of beer. Opens up a little at the end of the glass and I started to like it, but still nothing special about it.

Aroma of belgian yeast and a bit funk, tastes like a Leffe but less sweet and with more hops.

Quality taste pale ale, but nothing impressive. The intensity aroma is not quite as expected. Price performance is inadequate. Heavy metal farmer would not appreciate it.

Vells (544) - LATVIA - OCT 27, 2013
Dominating malts, quite yeasty, bit fruity with decent hops. Easy drinkable, but nothing special brew. Too pale for me, inexpressive. This is OK brew, but not for me

Bottle at WilliamK Annankatu. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, peach, earthy notes, yeast, floral hops and herbs. Bitter finish with citrus and hops. Excellent belgian ale.

Not our favorite Lost Abbey beer. Pours a cloudy orange with a foamy why head. A good amount of sediment. Citrus in the smell, like a saison. Green apple right up front in the taste, followed by a bit of lemongrass. Strange bitter sour aftertaste though. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Honestly, Iím not a big fan of this one. It was sort of a bland swill. There werenít any pronounced Belgian qualities to this one. It was on the dry side without any of the sweet body that I expected. Hints of lime and a slight amount of bitterness. Maybe my expectations were too high, or maybe I got a bad bottle.

Large head on this hazy amber beer. There is a sweetness on the tongue which last well after each sip. Coriander and lemon flavors.

Bottled 07JUN12 Reviewed 12JUL13 Pours a nice golden with a soild quilt of creamy, tortuous head. Smells of grain, yeast, a little clove and vine, simple nose. Flavor is grain, metal, some botanicals, a little yeast, a little something I canít put my finger on but I like. Medium bodied with soft carb and a wet finish. I like. I would like more in a 12oz bottle for $2 each ish.

One of the least tasting beers I ever had. Totally stripped of any taste, 100% forgettable if it wasnít for the disappointment. Has a very slight malt going on and a bit of citrus, but other than that Iím very puzzled about how they managed to make it so anonymous - I couldnít do it! But Iíd almost rather have a beer that tastes bad, just to get some character; had a sip of paulaner while drinking this and it seemed packed with taste in comparison. Good call to use this for a base to brett in their Saint version though.
