Inspired by crisp white wines, Saison Blanc features New Zealand hops, golden raisins and white pepper for a decidedly bright, spicy, and robust low ABV beer. Finished with Brettanomyces at packaging, this beer will evolve for many more years to come.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Deep cereals, rustic fermentation character and herbal hop bitterness coalesce in this very authentic, effervescent French farmhouse brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam sits atop the cloudy gold.
-Mouthfeel is dry and very effervescent; this is nicely drinkable too.
-The farmhouse character is salient despite never falling wild territory.
-A touch of citrus fruitiness is found as well.
-Raisins and white pepper add nuances, never leaping out of the flavor profile.
-A sulphur-y hint hides in corners.
-This could just as easily have been brewed on the border of France and Wallonia.

Bottle; 2013 vintage.

Scopey (12505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle from Ølbutikken. It pours light hazy gold with a minimal white head. The nose is barnyard, grain, orange, pear skin, peach, cat litter and hay. The taste is grassy, grapefruit peel, barnyard, peppery spice, good deal of bitterness, wood and some alcohol with a dry, peppery finish. Medium body and next to no carbonation. Let down by the complete lack of carbonation. Pretty poor by Lost Abbey’s standards.
