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.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAR 17, 2007
A nice, dark ale. Very much a peppery, estery belgian-style ale. Tastes of coriander, a little bit of caramely raisin and also banana. A good beer, but really not my style. I cannot say that it is not well crafted, because it is definitely that. I just do not appreciate the style as much as I should I guess.

TChrome (1434) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2007
Beer pours dark mahogeny color with a nice thick tan colored head that is mostly retained. Aromas of bread, dark fruits, mostly raisins, candy sugar, and earthy yeastiness for good measure. Flavor of sweet, dark malts, bread pudding, and the finish is nice yeasty and dry. Palate is dead on for belgian styles. Perfect carbonation. Yummy.

Bottle traded by Sean in person at the knoxville tasting, thanks BB. After drinking angels share and being disappointed, I figured I might as well try this one too, to see if it was good. I drank the Avant Garde or whatever a few months back, and remembered it being very good, so whatever, off goes the cork. Pours out a dark brown color with a thick head that tapers out around the glass into just a little ring. Heavy carbonation. Smells fruity, full of raisins, malts, some figs, really good smell. Smells like a bottle of beer straight from Belgium. Taste is sweet and thick, pretty high in carbonation, typical mouthfeel for a belgian style beer. You can really taste the sweet fruits and biscuit malt in this one. Yeasty and very smooth. Certainly a good experience, way better than the angels share. Thanks for this one Sean, now work on getting me the red barn ale!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle: Muddy brown, quite dirty, caramel highlights, large light beige foamy head, fairly sticky lacing.   Big bready malty nose, slight pale fruit skin, along with raisins, figs, and dates.   Even though its only 7%, it seems like there is a bit of alcohol there.   Subtle notes of caramel and toffee.   Extremely bready on the tongue, warming for a 7% brew.   Aformentioned dark pitted fruit, but mainly a strong breadiness with a minor spiced aspect.   Seems to be a little bit of alcohol that is noticeable.   Almost seems its higher than whats stated on the bottle.   Wow, this one really is meaty!   Moderatey body, heavy mouthfeel.   Figgy finish, trailering alcohol, remains heavily breaded.   This is one malty mo-fo.   Very yeasty too.   Well built, but quite heavy.   T’was somewhat sweet, but towards the end it gets drier and a little salty like.   Tiz best to share a 750ml with someone as this one here drinks like a meal!   Thanks Tad for the bottle!
