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 youíll 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.

marcus (7552) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
This dark brown ale poured with a thin off-white head and a sweet malty aroma. There is a candy and raisin flavor typical to the trappist dubbel-style ales, although there is not the degree of complexity the monks have developed over the years. Itís pleasantly carbonated with a nice body. Overall, a pretty good approximation of a trappist ale.

Bartzilla (568) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Good ole Lost And Found. This is the bottles that I can get at most discriminating beer outlets in town and has become somewhat of a go-to ale when I am craving the delicious belgian candi sugar flavors with that delicious plum/prune/fruit backbone. I like. So should you.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Pours a dark clear brown color, off white head. Aroma is strong belgian notes. Raisins and plums come to mind immediately. Flavor starts with vanilla, sweet with some lavender/floral notes. Sweet end with a nice body to it.

ElGaucho (2299) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle brought back from California by McBeer and shared during Dark Lord Day 2007. Subtle aroma. Dark reddish amber with a nice tan head. Barrel aged character. Has a backbone. Pretty good. Not outstanding but has enough oomph to keep it interesting.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2007
This offering from The Lost Abbey pours a clear auburn with small carbonation bubbles throughout that leave a thick tan head that quickly disappears. The aroma is funky, sour, horse blanket, caramel, vanilla, some pepper, and nice herbal spices throughout the nose. The taste starts sweet upfront, caramel, malt bomb, dark pitted fruit, plums, raisins, followed by a sour unripened twang in the finish. This overall beer is good, a little alcohal strong for 7% that could mellow possible with age.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2007
It pours a slightly hazy, brownish orange body with a tight little off-white head. Nice aroma of sweet malts, dark fruits (dried and fresh), molasses, and a lightly soapy yeast. Light bodied, itís sweet with caramel, candi sugar, dark juicy fruit, watered molasses, and yeast. Finishes sweet with a low alcohol burn. Not bad.

Quake1028 (633) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 26, 2007
750ml bottle generously shared by Degarth. Thanks, Joe! Pours an apricot color, with a bubbly, small off white head. No lasting power on the head. Aroma of dark fruits, apricots, yeast, and some mustiness. Fore is spritzy and lightly astringent. Finishes with yeast, candied dark fruits. Finish is sour, crisp and dry - medium length. Something about this beer screams "old", and Iím not sure if that was intended or a good thing.

mabel (7277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2007
[261-20070413] 1pt9.4floz (c/o HogTownHarry, w/ him, blankboy, jerc, mds, tupalev). Deep barrel wine-grape richness in the aroma with not unpleasant light plastic background notes. Hazy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting bubbly creamy off-white head. Tastes like sweet candied booze with light caramel and floral notes. Medium-full boozy body. Super alcohol with strange candy is an interesting blend.
