3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle bought through Brill & Co. Pours hazy golden with a rather small frothy offwhite head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is funky with crackers, hay, white grapes, raisins, dry soil, leather and overripe tropical fruits. Taste is funky and tiny malty with crackers, hay, dry soil, old white bread, overripe grapes, overripe plums, barnyard, lemon zest, buttery wood and overripe tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is round, dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny bitter and slightly funky with old white bread, hay, overripe white grapes, dry soil and hints of barnyard and overripe tropical fruits. A disappointment but still an OK beer.

Cloudy orange body with particles and a white head. Very nice yeasty and fruity aroma with orange, wheat, wet grass, apricot, a floral note. Excellent yeasty flavour with wheat, apricot, bannana, orange, biscuits, lemon, toast, a dry finish. Great.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled May, 2012
Pours golden with a solid quilt of bone white foam that falls to a central dome in a minute. Smells of sweet grain, a saison like yeast quality, some hay, a little grass, some artificial apricot, and a hint of clay. Flavor reminds me mostly of a belgian blonde - with overtly savage yeast. Too belgian for me. Sweet with grain and plenty of yeast - nearly a unibroue intensity here. Not sitting well with me. Some hints of grains of paradise. Medium on full bodied with lively carb and a wet finish. Glad I only grabbed one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Odense Beer & Ball Saturday - Real Madrid vs. Valladolid. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Yeasty aroma with some weak fruity and spicy notes, a bit like a boring, non-trappist tripel. Sweet yeasty and spicy flavour with a touch of funk. Quite disappointing for a Lost Abbey brett beer...

Bottle shared at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Cloudy golden-orange. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, a bit soapy, a bit floral. Sweetish yeasty flavor with fruity esters. Medium-bodied. Like a middle-of-the-road Belgian Ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL bottle dated 7/23/2012.Aroma is fairly fruit with moderate pear and red apple notes along with lighter notes of tropical fruit and pineapple. Light graininess present. Hint of barnyard funk.Pours a slightly cloudy pale gold with a moderately thick white head that is slightly soapy but had pretty good retention. Light lacing and no legs.Flavor is similar but with a lot more red apple cider character that immediately hits you. Lighter pear notes with only faint tropical fruit and cherry. Funk is fairly low and malt tastes a bit stale and honey-like. Low bitterness. Some lingering honey and red cider notes. Dry finish.Mouthfeel is medium to medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.Overall a good beer but not an amazing beer. Saints Devotion is a much better Brett beer. The cider notes are too strong and it seems a little under carbonated. Could use a lighter fruit character and fresher malt profile.
