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.

eaglefan538 (2892) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 20, 2007
Bottle shared, courtesy, slob. Poured a cloudy brown with reddish hues, beautiful tan head, great retention. Aroma was candied sugar, spices, light floral notes. The flavor was raisins, coriander, spice, yeast, breadiness, light cherry-plumby thing going on. Mouthfeel was creamy, spicey, zingy. A pretty nice dubbel. Thanks, Bert!

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 20, 2007
Pours a muddy red/brown with some yellow highlights and moderate head. Most things about this beer are better when you’ve got all that sediment poured in the glass, including the aroma. Raisins are pretty noticable here, but there’s some light banana, some cloves and other spices, some caramel and candy sugar. Strong and totally inviting. Taste is sweet and earthy, some slight raisins at first, but quickly overtaken by some caramel brown sugar, tobacco, dirt/leaves, and persistant burnt toast dryness. The dryness on the tongue is a little off in the first glass, but with the cloudy glass is nice and well integrated in the profile. Finishes with more toast, light coffee, leaves and butterscotch. There still some effevescent yeast and fruit to brighten the flavor a bit, but you detext in the back of your nose and don’t really taste it. That’s fine by me. This is an earthier abbey and very mellow and well-rounded. If it didn’t wow me from the start, by the end of the second glass, I realized how many things I like about this beer. Good stuff!

Bottle sampled on 12/2/06: Pours a transparent deep copper with an airy, light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark biscuity Belgian malt with some toasty caramel and authentic yeasty character. Sweet, dark caramely malty flavor has nice complexity and a full bready body. Well-balanced, very authentic and enjoyable.
