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.

On tap. Pours a hazy gold with an aroma of yeast, clove, and pale malt. It has a light flavor of pale malt and yeast up front with the clove and banana stronger towards the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Savage_Night (58) - California, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours a pale orange amber hue with a lovely white head. Head retention is amazing. AROMA: malt, citrus, tangerines, hop floral, slightly sour, light caramel, dry white wine and hop spice. TASTE: hop bitterness, spices, peppercorns, tangerines, citrus, slight tart/sour tones, herbs, caramel, earthy and malt. AFTER TASTE: hop spice, light citrus, bitterness and a very light funk with an oily yet dry finish. Great tasting brew with an amazing lacing left behind on the glass. Now to try Saint Devotion.

Bottle thanks to Don. Pours a cloudy gold with large frothy off white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is belgian yeast, spice, and toast. Medium mouth feel, similar flavors to nose, spice finish, decent.

Danyel (1332) - Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Tap at Backcountry. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma is slightly wild, oranges, very light aromatics. Taste is light bodied, funky, thin, really kinda boring. Overall, simple.

A nice brew, light on the nose with a bit of hay and citrus. Crisp taste with a tiny bit of funk but mostly hay and bread. Finishes quick and clean. Also, ElGaucho is the man

750ml. Followed almanac sourdough wild. Very similar beers. This one is peppery, perhaps more subtle funk. Interesting that this is more highly rated because both my buddy and I prefer the almanac. Excellent and refreshing

Very nice. Saison-like. Good Belgian yeast. For an American Belgian, surprisingly high carbonation. Recommended.

Draft at Salt and Cleaver. Pours hazy golden amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like dry yeast, doughy malt, lemon, grapefruit, light spice. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like light banana, yeast, light spice, and citrus.

Joli nez de fruits jaunes et céréales. Belles notes épicées. En bouche, texture incroyablement soyeuse... On retrouve toute de suite les fruits jaunes, accompagnés du caramel du malt. L’amertume arrive petit à petit. Finale très sèche et amère sur les épices et les fruits.
