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.

Pours a cloudy blonde color with a medium white head. Very pleasant aroma of noble hops, yeast and spices. Very good flavor of noble hops, yeast and spices with a dry, bitter finish. The body is light to medium while the carbonation is moderate. This is a very good, refreshing, sharp, belgian ale, Tomme Arthur is a master.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Poured a hazy yellow orange tone. Nose was a bit musty, with a two finger foamy off white head. Flavor was yeast with quite a bit of spice and clove. Not a lot of flavor here, though. A bit bitter from the middle through the end. Just O.K.

thegreat78 (42) - San Marcos, California, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Decent bready malts, a rather full mouthfeel - really hits the the entire mouth with flavor. A big rush of hops - flavor and bittering. The yeast flavors provide more balance against the hop than the malts, but I found the beer to have enough malt to hold up. Long fresh hop finish. Fresh cut grass, a bit of citrus. The hops tasted freshly harvested, maybe the label is effecting me....but that fresh hop flavor really came through. As with so many of Tomme’s beers - complex, flavorful and perfect beer for rish cheeses and crusty bread.

Enniskillen (2045) - 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.

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 (4102) - 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.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2007
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 (3045) - 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.
