COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Enniskillen (2044) - Salinas, California, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Aroma is lightly spicey, with citrus, and a light hoppiness. Taste is much the same as the aroma, fairly hoppy for a belgian style.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle. Golden clear colour with a nice white head. Aroma of yeast and spices. Flavour of spices, citrus and yeast. Not bad at all.

IrishBoy (4064) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 27, 2007
750ml bottle; nose of flowery citrus hops; lightly hazed dark gold with a medium straw haed; flavor is hop bitterness, lemon, and a slight bit of caramel. Not Lost Abbeys best! Tastes like a mediocre IPA.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 bottle....appearance: orange-brown hue with a thick/fluffy white head. very much resembled an ipa in nature.....aroma: crisp, hoppy citrus nose.....taste: light medium body, somewhat like a lighter belgian ale with a nice citrus bitterness. some wheat qualities come into play as well.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Golden-hazy pour with a nice white head. Aroma is grainy and yeasty with a nice bit of citrus. Flavor has a bready, yeasty mix to it with some orange and spice. Nice brew, but way too average to be worth "Lost Abbey" prices. I’ll take these average brews if it means Tomme makes such great brews.......

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Bottle: Hazy, honey-ish golden pour with a frothy white head. The nose is Belgian yeasts, plastic-y phenolic notes, and citruc spices; slightly herbal. Has lively carbonation on the medium body. Spicy citruses dominate. Lots of orange type fruits, herbal undertones, with a spicy (white pepper) character. The finish is long spicy (peppery). Not very complex, but somewhat well made.

toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Another awesome offering from Lost Abbey. Pours a light amber with a thin white head. Flavors of spice, hops and malt.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2007
Light hazy fully golden colour with a dense white head. Malty, sweet aroma with fruity and light spicy notes with a vague hint of alcohol. Malty, fruity flavor with spicy notes and hints of yeast. light dry finish.

Sammy (10572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2007
Lovely pale yellow with lots of foam, normal Belgian yeasty aroma. Leaf dry hoppiness that works with the yeast, and works up in the finish a fruity and grassy climax. Well done "blonde". Finished the bomber myself at lunch, I was tempted by the relatively lower ABV. It was a good pale Belgian.
