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.

Thanks to badgerben for sharing. Nicely balanced malt and hops on the nose with plenty of raisin, fig, and other dark fruit characteristics. Similar body with the alcohol burning through.

Stine (1713) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2007
A reddened oak shade of brown. Aroma of raisins burned in a brown sugar reduction. A bit of port character, molasses and oatmeal cookies. Iron is unmistakable at first. Plums, cacao, and raspberries. Dense and approachable with its sugar-rolled doughy sweetness. Finishes on a dry rub of anise seed and ground cloves. Palate is fairly light and lively given the general construct. Plenty of possibilities here with scattered conclusions. One of those that never evolves into the full sum of its parts. Thanks Larry!

GaltScat (195) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2007
A brewery that fails to make a less than great brew. Reddish brown with a heavy whitish head. Raisins, sugar, malt, yeast, and figs are the aroma. Similar is the taste but with emphasis on the yeast. The finish left lingering flavors.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2007
A 22-oz bottle courtesy of badgerben and shared with Friday beer tasting group. Pours a dark ruby brown color brew with a thick off-white head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate malt, sweet raisins, candi sugar, figs and prunes. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium to full bodied, with flavors of figs, dark pitted fruit and dates. Finish is smooth, slightly dry with a spicy banana aftertaste.

Thanks to Dirty_Martini for the trade! Copper color with a thin head. The aroma is packed full of spice, yeast and brown sugar. Much of the same in the flavor... sweet malt, brown sugar and raisins. Something a little like wintergreen or weak mint towards the finish. Damn fine.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 Enjoyable though nowhere near as great as their Judgment Day. Mine was crystal clear mahogony brown, small tan head. Nose of sweet toffee and dried fruits. Mouth a little thin but ok. Taste a little simple ... sweet toffee and candi sugar, a little raisin and prune. // End of the bottle is not as clear as the first pour, of course.

Pours a beautiful dark amber, hazy, cloudy color with a few hints of ruby tones, peircing through the goblet. There wasn’t much in the way of a head, or lacing. There were tiny bubbles that cascaded through the beer on the pour, but they slowly subsided and made their way down to join the fun in the liquid. The scent was purely wonderful. Raisins, figs, malt, fruit, yeast...couldn’t wait to sip this baby. The taste fully consumed my palate and made me crave another. Very beautiful taste and mouthfeel with a coating, lasting malty flavor and a perfect play on the palate. This is my first Lost Abbey of many to come. I loved this beer and look forward to many more from LA.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2007
Brown colored with slight red hints. Little yellow head. Nicely spiced aroma with some chocolate and lemony spices. High carbonation. Flavor is also rich with sweet sugary touch, yeast and biting alcohol, which is still not too strong. Aftertaste dries strongly with some alcohol and yeast. Not very Belgish brew.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 7, 2007
750 ml bottle. Brewed Iced-tea reddish brown coloring. Carbonated and similar in appearance to the classic trappist ales. Sugary, malty, fruity tones a la prunes and raisings. Distinctively dry, sour in body and taste. Interesting ping-pong of taste and sensation from tongue to roof to back of throat. Alcohol a little too present (not sure I complain usually on this front) - would have preferred more balance. Small complaint, though, doesn’t counter-act a solid offering.

yespr (37013) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2007
From 75 cL bottle. Pours amber with a crispy white head. Citric and bitter aroma. Malty metallic, vague dried fruit note. Dry fruity/malty and alcohol finish.
