This is delightful. The Aroma is slight though pleasant, I would prefer more esters in the noise. It is beautiful golden color slightly hazy with a creamy dense head which laces just so. Slightly sweet slightly bitter with a perfect mouthful. Great Beer.

Fruity flavour of spices, brett and yeast with notes of dish wwasher and hops.
Reminds me of an Orval, though this one is less hoppy.

Hazy yellow pour with a big frothy white head.. Aromas of citrus, pear, and feet. Flavors bring some spice to the table. Pretty good mouth feel. I probabl wont be getting this one again.

Hazy light amber pour with a thick creamy head that sticks to everything. Nice aroma of citrus, apples, peaches, pepper, spice, alcohol and yeast. It’s got it all! Flavor is similar, but not quite as good or complex as the aroma. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy, slight alcohol kick. Smooth and creamy on the palate. Very nice.

750ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber with a medium creamy/rocky head. Aroma was pear and biscuit , peppery spices, cloves and a bit of banana. Taste was fairly dry with a big spice kick that lasted through the finish.

Think Duvel, without less carbonation. There’s an old saying about imitation and flattery, and it applies here.

Thanks Jimbo. Pours golden with a huge white, rocky head. Aroma of wet hay, fresh dough, apple juice, vanilla, spice and candi sugar. Taste is crisp and dry, with lots of fruits: apples, pears, peaches, some light citrus (like tangerines), a bit of spice and honey. A bit of clove in the finish. An absolutely awesome brew.

Smells of Saison from 2 feet away. Peppery, clean and grainy. It poured nice and has a cloudy straw color that is both plain and pretty. Mouthfeel surprises as it’s more oily than spritzy. Alcohol taste is non-existent. Refreshing. Has a creamy-malt background and is a beautifully put-together beer. Good balance.!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle: Deep gold pour with a sizeable frothy head that leaves surprisingly little lace. Amazingly clean aroma with lots of hay, fresh dough, lemon, white pepper, clean alcohol and fresh cut grass. Moderate carbonation leads into an esthery experience that offers granny apple, sweet pear, underripe peaches. The yeast plays off the moderately maltiness that adds light caramel, straw and earth to the mix. Finishes a bit sweeter than would be preferred, but this is well built and flaw free. I guess imitation is indeed the most sincere form of flattery. Nicely done Lost Abbey.
