COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at thirsty monk. Pours golden with a thin white head that leaves no lacing. Not much on the nose. Not much on the tongue either. Thereís a sweetness I didnít expect. I didnít get any sour notes at all. Finish is a bit watery. Itís a disappointment. Youíd expect these two to make something a hell of a lot better than this.

Tap @ the thirsty monk - pours a clear gold with a finger of white head. Aroma is faint and I canít place it. This reminds me more of a saison then a wild ale since I donít find it very sour. Overall, interesting.

Bottle. Rubber and light horseblanket and lemon/pineapple aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Mildly funky, very lightly sour wheat malt flavor. Okay - not really much to get excited about though.

Bottle. Musty sweet citrusy pineapple aroma, and something that reminds me .. I know... it sounds strange... but of hotdogs. Golden yellow with a large white head, nice lacing. Sweet musty/funky wheat malt flavor with a light spicy grassy edge. Creamy medium body.

pours a hazy straw yellow. head is large and white right after pouring but settles very thin with some soapy lacing around the edge of the glass. aroma is earthy with some hints of citrus and pineapple. funky taste of hay, along with some lemon zest on the finish. dry and slightly tart. creamy mouth feel.

on tap at ChurchKey. First off this is not supposed to be a Sour beer - it is a 100% Brett fermentation using B. Anomalus (which is a more subtle strain of Brettanomyces yeast which puts off pineapple notes and is light in aroma). Donít expect the normal funky barnyard Brett notes you may be used to in other wild ales using other strains of Brett (bruxellensis, lambicus). I believe the low ratings on here are reflecting the mis-interpretation of what this beer is and how it is supposed to taste. Thus, it arrived to the table a nice golden / orange color with a 1 finger white head. Light pineapple / citrus nose. Med body - semi-dry - with clean citrus notes (including lemon & orange). Finishes semi-dry with a light funky presence overshadowed by citrus notes. When used as a primary fermentation yeast, Brett produces very clean and dry beers. Interesting and very drinkable beer - Iíll have another!

Started out promising enough- was nice to behold in the glass with a lively head and nose, but fell flat on the palate and tasted very ordinary- nothing stuck out at me.
