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.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt, belgian yeast, spices, bubblegum, and brown sugar. Flavor is similar, dominated by the malt and spices. Decent dubbel.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2007 Dark amber/brownish color. Very smooth with flavors of figs, raisins, caramel, cherries, and other items contributing to this very sweet ale. I would have preferred a little more balance in the sweet department, but I think that is what they were going for anyway. Does not compare to the trappist beers it was trying to imitate.

acearl (403) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2007
From a 1pt 9.4 l bottle. Brown rust pour with small light brown diminishing creamy head, not much lacing, smells like a hint of hazelnut, brown sugar and dried and candied fruits such as figs and raisons (just like the bottle description depicts,) light carbonation, creamy to syrupy texture, full body, initial brown sugar sweetness light spice and a bit of a nutty average lasting finish, but as it warmed the finish became alcoholic, however, this is not too strong of a brew. Although not a belian trappist it is almost on the level. I love Dubbels and this one is very much worth trying.

badlizard (5535) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Tasted at Lost Abbey tasting room. Brown with thin white head. Sweet candy and raisin aroma. Taste of raisin, some sourness, and a slightly alcoholic finish.

kepano (247) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 26, 2007
The durable yellowish foam and deep crimson body suggest, at the outset, a beer of quality and pedigree. With a wink to St. Bernardus, the nose breathes of custard and fig. Hinting also to coriander and caramel, the scents are subtle and hide beneath a predominant mineral water quality. Fruit flavors reminiscent of fig and plum are balanced by malted intonations of dark caramel and illusory coffee. Pepper and custard add familiar connotations to an otherwise dilute body – unfortunately allowing too much alcohol to transpare. As the beer warms, a faint complexity appears: hop and orange peel lead to dried apricot and pear, as well as raisin. Finishing with nutmeg and a note of hot anise, Lost and Found is a brew that tries as it can to imitate tradition but is only somewhat successful. An enjoyable effort but I wouldn’t chose it over any of the Trappists.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2007
draft- real dark brown, yellow head, wild yeasty aroma, bannanas, cherrys. Sour taste, pretty decent, but not my favorite style.

3.5
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
IEBAILI (126) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Clear dark brown, amber orange when held to light, beige head that fades quickly. Smells like Belgian yeast and caramel. A little tangy, fruity and spicy. Very smooth and slightly sweet with some dried fruit flavors on the finish; a hint of brandy. Slightly bitter with no noticeable hop aroma. Nice but a little short on flavor, especially compared to other Port/Lost Abbey products.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Caramel and candi sugar throughout. Dates and raisins also noted. No head or lacing. A bit too lively carbonation and a slight sour character. Brett? But, I don’t think it was intentional. A certain wheat character on the finish. Some good complexity and a decently made beer, but a little let down and expecting more from such an esteemed brewery.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Hazy garnet with fine, long-lasting head. Aroma of figs, dates and light apricot. Light banana. Light caramel malt and alcohol. Thinnish smoke-laced body surprisingly lacking in sweetness. More banana and hearty bread flavor. Strangely spare, puckering finish.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a raisiny brown with no head and no visible carbonation. Nose is porty, raisins and prunes. Flavor is a blend of dried fruit, with notes of licorice and root beer. This was a pretty decent sipper. Thick and viscous, with a light brown sugar sweetness and a malty backdrop.
