COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Corruption, Greed, and Lust. They’re all represented on the hooks of today. Tomorrow, they’ll be stinging Gluttony, Desire, and Sloth. Go ahead. Tell yourself you’re better than all of them. But you can’t. Hell can be funny like that. Down here it’s all just sin. Everyone here is screwed just like you. They don’t care who you sliced, diced, or cheated. No on is escaping this heinous place. Your roommate is an ax murderer. Eerily, he’s not threatening. How can he be? Here, the Fallen Angel owns your body, mind and soul. As such, no one can take your life. It’s already been taken. Or was it given? Neither matters. Did you seriously think you were living a virtuous life. At least Satan serves beer in Hell. He brews it himself right there in that flame stoked cauldron. Rumor has it the beer is straw yellow, bone dry and simply labeled Inferno.

Maxbier (77) - Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Dark yellow (straw color) with big white natural head, cloudy if you pour the whole bottle (bottom half inch has sediment from bottle conditioning). Aroma of fruits, yeast, and sweet honey notes. Both sweet and sour, but mostly sweet. Fruity, citrus notes, apricots. I have had a lot of beers of this style that I did not care for, this one is wonderful. So far, the Lost Abby is batting 1,000 in my experiences.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2013
2008 Bottle, aged 5 years+: Hazy golden coloured body with a rich, thick three centimetre just off-white head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of alcohol, yeast, grain, hay, white pepper, a touch of sour grapes and a little brett. Light to Medium-bodied; Grassy herbal flavour with a very smooth sweetness, some light honey, a touch of flowers and dry oak and a bit of complex yeast strains. Aftertaste shows a very smooth, robust yeast and grassy flavour with a little bit of herbal notes tucked throughout with a good sweetness. Overall, a nice and super subtle and mellow beer with more of a yeast taste than anything else - this was a saison, pure and simple, no belgian anything about it. Great to sample, especially with the age, which I think helped it, almost perfectly in this case. I sampled this 2008 aged 75 cL bottle purchased from City Beer in San Francisco, California on 29-June-2010 for US$11.99 sampled at home in Washington on Christmas Eve [24-December-2013] 2013. Bottle Dated (hang tag) 2008 // Purchased 2010 // Sampled 2013

Bottle shared thanks to Coleman! Pours a translucent golden orange with thin white head and good lacing. Aroma is fruity with spicy yeast a sweet tropical backbone. Taste is caramel up front, then sweet fruitiness, hint if apple, then grain. No real booziness, nice.

Tomy63 (173) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - NOV 19, 2013
Couleur : or profond. Nez : assez levuré, fait très bière belge, légèrement sucré, notes d’agrumes (surtout d’orange). Bouche : bien plus fruitée que le nez, légèrement sucrée, très fruitée, beaucoup de pêche et d’orange, un peu de citron aussi. Un tout petit peu de levure et de caramel, on est enter la belge d’abbaye, la saison et l’IPA. C’est très désaltérant et très facile, elle n’a pas la lourdeur des triples belges, mais une bonne puissance avec ses 9%. Finale : longue, très fruitée, un peu de céréales et de caramel, assez fraîche, amertume très légère. Une bonne bière très facile, assez originale, loin au-dessus de toutes les bières blondes belges.

esox (971) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Bottled. Hazy orange beer, thin creamy head. Yeasty, somewhat funky nose. Spicy, almost peppery nose, green pear, some bretta. Sweet, caramelly flavor, too sweet for a golden strong. Decent bitterness and sour finish. Medium body, slightly oily and flat. For me, it is just too sweet. And where is complexity?
