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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Dark copper color with a lid of off white bubbles. Interesting aromas of raisins, asparagus and melons. Light earthy malt and stewed dark fruit are present, but certainly not big and robust. Quite light, perhaps in the tasting the finer qualities were lost, just seemed quite faint.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2007
750ml - thanks Foolish_Mortal - Aroma of bubblegum, dark fruity malts, alcohol and typical Belgian dubbel yeastiness. Pours transparent red with cascading bubbles, a small head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma without the alcohol. Palate is creamy and smooth. A very simple yet tasty dubbel.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Brown w. a hint of orange, decent amount of sediment, light tan head. Nose is fruit - apples, cherries, grapes mixed with a healthy dollop of yeast, caramel, slight alcohol, fig. Flavor is caramel, fruit, nuts, yeast, alcohol. Chocolate in the finish. Butter but in no way aggressive. Very solid.

BBB63 (6045) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Bottle and served in my St. Bernardus chalice: Poured a rich deep mahogany hue with an initial fizzy head which left a small ring and some lace. The nose detects plum, starfruit, fig, candi and brown sugar, toasted bready malts, hint of spicy hops and a smack of phenolic activity.

The taste is quite fruity and earthy malt dominated, not that it is such a bad thing. I get a mix of undertones in the middle of vanilla, oak, musty and dusty yeast, and a pinch of marzipan. The finish is quite spicy really (clove and ginger I found) and the aggressive carbonation makes this unique. Perhaps a chalky and somewhat mineral aftertaste is itís downfall for I enjoy this more when tasting and less so after it was done. Worth a try but be forewarned this is not a prime example of a old world dubbel.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Huge aroma of apple, banana, plum, raisin, vanilla, brown sugar. Appears a crystal clear mahogany color with some reddish hues, and with a mountainous brown head that dissipates almost immediately. Flavor is figs and raisins at the start, with vanilla, bourbon, and oak in the middle, and ending with flavors of spiced fruitcake. Palate is quite dry. Overall, a good brew that could be made better with a bit more residual sweetness and a bit less of a dry mouthfeel.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 9, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2007 Courtesy of Pailhead. Another bottle from winetr santa, I will revisit shortly. Absolutely loved this beer, appears I am in the minority. brilliant dark ruby, huge beige head, fades to ring of film. Spotty lacing. All kinds of dark fruit in the aroma and flavor. Fig, prune, grape, raisin. Certain chewy yeastiness to it. One dimensional in a way, but really enjoy it.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Thanks to KAME for this one. Pours out a nice deep brown with a moderate white head. Aroma was of some yeast, spice and caramel. Flavors are very complex with fruity notes of raisin, prune, fig with some other spice notes going on in the background. Very solid beer, cantí wait to try a few more from this brewery.

Zeswaft (1370) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2007
Mike oberdorf brought this home. I wish I remembered to rate it earlier. I remember it being ok but nothing spectacular. In fact when I compare it to other dubbels like the Bellís or Westmalle, it pales. However it was a nice treat. Light flavor, sort of sweet and a little spicy, and not as robust as the aforementioned beers.

ChazMania (653) - Pasadena, California, USA - JAN 3, 2007
Ginormous bottle, I guess itís the 750ml that others mentioned. I have been sick and so this is my first real beer in a while. There are alot of complex things happening with this puppy, molases, carmel, raisen, prune, date, fig and much more. (updated) I originally rated this while it was cold from the frig, wow, it is definetely much better at room temp. I like my IPAís cold, still learning how to drink the Belgian styles at room temp, this is a winner in that regard!
