COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A life worth living is full of discovery and we are reminded everywhere there is opportunity. All it takes is desire to seek out and find these things, these moments and everything in between. We brewed Lost and Found Abbey Ale to pay homage to the great monastic breweries of Belgium. Like us, we hope you’ll take the time to discover a beer that breathes aromas of figs, raisins and candied fruits. Please join us by raising your glass as we offer a toast to patience, perseverance, and all the things we have lost along the way and were somehow lucky enough to find once again.

omhper (21416) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2007
Bottled, thanks cquiroga! Cloudy nut brown, average head. Caramelly nose. Sweet and fairly soft with medium body. Mild and spritzy, fruity and lightlyestery. So melon and metal shows up as well. Stays shy of being overpowering and cloying, and is instead mild and laid back. Somehow the flavour doesn’t really cover the whole mouth as in the best Belgian ales.

oh6gdx (22982) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 4, 2007
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sour fruits, nuts and slight caramel. Flavour is caramel, nuts, some alcohol and a bit of licorace. A very smoothly and pleasantly balanced brew.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Sample from 750 ml bottle at the Mondial, Montreal (May 2007). Dark, hazy caramel body with a decent jigger of head, nicely lasting and with thick lacing....wonderfully rich, sweet, decadent aroma, fine herbs and a bit of hardwood smoke, caky and juicy....the body, however, is fairly dry and yeasty-cobwebby, the sugars much subdued....hints of dry grape/wine character grow stronger towards the effervescent, lightly tart finish....quite supple and airy on the tongue, but never for a moment feeling thin or watery....this is quite an interesting take on the dubbel, beautifully constructed and uncompromising, just lovely.

TBone (14267) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2007
Bottled 75 cl
Hazy nut brown color, small brownish head. Caramel, yeast and fresh vegetables in the nose. Quite alcoholic, feels even higher than 7 %. Caramelly-toffeish, some hops, loads of yeast there. This beer has lost its soul on the way, but drinkable it is.

decaturstevo (5487) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2007 Sampled the night before DLD. Slightly hazed brown pour with off white head. The aroma and flavor are dominated by the yeastiness. The flavor has some dried fruit like raisins as well. Slightly fizzy/foamy for me but a good beer. Carbonation is a bit of an issue for me but the flavor and mouthfeel over come that to make this a solid offering.

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2010 (Bottled, 0.75l) Murky amber color with a small, but lasting head. Lots of sweet, dark fruit, raisins, touch of ash, grainy malt, and some alcohol in the aroma. Sweetish-malty flavor with lots of dried and fresh fruit, lots of ashy yeastiness. Some acidity, and a drier ashiness in the finish. Medium-bodied, quite low-carbonated palate. Too sweet, yeasty and acidic to be really enjoyable. It was not a bad bottle, just a so-so beer.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2008 dark red color. sweet fruity aroma. Perfect blend of maltiness and sweet raisin flavor. Amazing beer!

drewbeerme (3902) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 750ml, pours brown with tan head. nose has brown sugar, bread, dark fruits, and spicy yeast. flavor is nutty, bready, slightly spicy yeast, and some dark fruits. a basic abbey beer that doesn’t really do anything special.3.4.

rated blind from "Better Know a Style: Abbey Dubbel" tasting. pours ruby with tan head. nose is smokey, caramel, alcohol. flavor of red fruits, doughy, yeasty, alcohol. mouth feel is smooth. meh. 3.1.

2/23/08, another sample from a bottle shared by holdenn. This is easily my least favorite LA brew as it continues to unimpress me. lots of dried fruit and some yeastyness leaving a lot to desire. i keep trying this brew and wanting more but I guess that’s what Amazing Grace is for. 3.2.

750m courtesy aspidites. Pours hazy dark copper with a pale yellow head. Aroma of brown sugar and figs. Tastes a bit like fruitcake with hops and carbonation: lightly spicy, fruit, bread, nuts, molasses. Sweet, but not overly so.
