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.

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.

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.

The first thing you notice about this beer is it has an odd appearance. Not so much deep and dark as it is murky. The aroma is ginger and fig. A little on the unusual bend. The taste though is heavy in the raisin puree but unfortunately unimpressive. Felt as though this beer promised a lot but fell short.

Dark ruby red color with a big foamy head. Aroma of raisins and candy sugars. Sweet malt flavor with spicy raisin.

750mL bottle, Pizza Port / Port Brewing event at Brickskeller. Pours a murky, brownish color; light tan head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Generous, dried fruit and caramel aroma; biscuity and slightly dry. Medium-to-full, chewy mouthfeel: pleasant dried dark fruits and bready, biscuity warmth; very nice American-made dubbel, the best I’ve had in a while. Medium, dark malt and bready finish.

3fourths (8558) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Full nose of spicy brown sugar yeast, toast, nuts and dark fruit. Up front, though, it’s candied sugar cherry and a little wet/harsh/thin. Even smells a little bit boozy for 7-8%. Seems like it has the gravity to try to be a stronger Belgian, but as that it lacks body and smoothness. For a dubbel, it’s decent enough, has some nice sugary yeast esters, some caramel malt and candied bananas, but again, it lacks smoothness. Good but not great.

750. Thanks, Aspidites! Murky brownish amber. Thick moussy bubbles and intensely deep tan head. Lots of stalagtites on the side of the glass, too. Big musty apricto and plum nose. Smells like breakfast preserves you might spread on toast. Plummy body in a huge way--nougaty, too, and sweet, delicious...but almost too sweet.

Pours a ruddy brown color with a thin off-white head at the edges of the glass. Looks well-carbonated. Belgian yeast aroma with a pit fruit character. The carbonation plays well on the palate. Taste is moderately sweet, with some caramel and spice notes present. A good dubbel.
