New Belgium Brewing and The Lost Abbey brewery from San Marcos, California have a shared passion for a variety of things, not the least of which is the wild Belgian yeast brettanomyces. So they decided to join forces and collaborate. Lost Abbey Collaboration is brewed simply with pale malts accompanied by Target, Centennial and Sorachi hops for a hint of citrus. Focusing on their mutual respect for the ingredient, the spotlight shines on the brettanomyces, where a full brett fermentation offers bold pineapple overtones and funky, sour edge. The beer is a shining, golden shade and is warming and dry. Lost Abbey Collaboration is available on draft and in 22-ounce bombers.

Bottle. Clear dark yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet floral fruity aroma with notes of malt and bread. Lightly tangy taste of citrus bread and sweet lemon zest. Not bad.

Beautiful golden blonde color. Maybe a half finger of head. Nose is all yeast and bread, with hints of fruit and a slight funk but nothing crazy. Nice light body, bready and slightly fruity flavor, and a finishing spout note, but again nothing crazy. A very good beer from two of my favorite breweries.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured hazy, golden amber with a frothy white head. Nose had a bit of malt and fruitiness. Quite dry, very sweet, worty and lots of fruitiness. Funk was on the back burner. Earthy, and mineral-like tones. I really think this needs more time to allow the brett to shine.

22oz bottle. Hazy golden pour with lots of head. Aromas of barnyard, pineapple, bread, and earth. Flavor is slightly tart with some wheat and citrus. Underwhelming.

22oz bomber poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly hazy yellow with about a finger of white head. Aroma of light brett, bready malt, a little fruity. Taste is light-medium sweet. Bready malt and a little fruity. Not as much brett as I expected. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, itís ok. I just feel like this could have been a lot more.

22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Thought Iíd rate this one before the brett really kicked in and made it too sour for my liking. Light lacing. Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Aroma is herbal hops, light esters, and toasted grain malt. At this point, it kinda smells like a Pils. Flavor is similar to the aroma with the addition of some light sourness startiní up. Medium body. Not quite sure what to make of this beer. Iím sure it will develop over time.

Aroma is tropical fruit and funkiness. The flavor is pineapple, fruit/berries, an undercurrent of malts and a mild sourness/tartness in the finish

650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is mild with sweet white fruit, grapes and some light funky brett. The taste is sweet and sour with light lemons, sweet grapes and some lightly sour notes. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is long, dry and bitter-sweet/bitter-sour. Overall: I think that this is lousy as a sour ale, but quite good as a bretty saison. I like it to that extent.

Reminds me of a funky Tripel. The brett gives the beer a slight barnyard aroma, but the beer has a fantastic spicy taste with a warming finish. Pours a beautiful yellow with a cloudy head. Overall a very enjoyable beer. Aroma: citrus, herbs, barnyard Appearance: golden, cloudy, white foam Taste: light sweetness, lightly bitter Palate: full body, creamy
