3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was thick, rocky, and off white with good retention, but only a bit of lacing. The aroma was of subdued orange, yeasty bread dough, and mixed spices, none of which my nose accurately identified prospectively. Nice smell, though. Very attractive. Spicy, effervescent, and dry on the tongue. Delicious spices (again, none that I was good enough to pick out specifically without help form the label), orange, and bread dough graced the flavor. Very good beer. I’d happily drink this any day.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Doughy yeast aroma with some grassy and herbal hops apparent. Opaque yellow-blonde body is topped by a low white fine bubbled head that leaves some lace. Yeasty character in the flavour also with moderate bitterness that balances the sweet malts. Spices and grassy hop flavours in the aftertaste. Medium body with very strong carbonation. It almost seems like this fermented out far drier than intended. Sampled at Oakes’ Xmas tasting 2007.

Pours a golden orange with a thin head. Nice aroma of clove, other spices, and some orange. Nice spicy flavor, it was an enjoyable beer. I was glad to be able to taste so many Lost Abbey beers on my trip to San Diego.

On tap at Stone. Pours light orange with a lasting foamy head. Aroma is citrus, spice, and yeast. Tastes sour and refreshing with good carb. Aftertaste is nice, but has a slighty stale, bitter finish.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy, cloudy, lemon brown color. Light head - quickly runs down and away from glass rim. No residue in bottom of glass. Spicy, coriander, pepper, a bit tart, sour smelling. 2nd sniff reveals more doughy, yeasty hints. Carbonated, acidic on tongue. Banana-yeasty flavor. Dry, quick finish, like a tease. Grassy, earthly elements noticeable but not too prominent. Nice job here.

Deep golden with a tinge of orange. The aromas were of orange rind, spice, lemon, yeast, pepper and a forest floor/pine element. In the mouth it is medium-bodied with lots of carbonation running through the midpalate. Tart and rather simple with an earthy dry finish.
