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.

Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, barnyard funk, dirty feet and light citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dy finish. Flavors of bread, barnyard funk and a hint of citrus with a smooth dry lingering funky finish.

Sweet golden fruit nose, light pepper, a touch of cider. Taste is rather sweet, herbal, pepper, floral hops, estery yeast. No brett, probably wouldn’t have saved this beer anyway.

GT2 (9132) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap at CK. Pours a cloudy light golden to straw with smaller white foam. Nose is heavy lemon peel and major grain with mild urea. Smells like an export pale lager. Okayyy. Taste is sweet pineapple, sugar, some medicinal character. Mild astringent and major sugar. Don't think the Brett has done any work on this one. Probably stalled in secondary. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a bright yellow color with a decent white head. Strong malty aroma with some grassy notes. Lemon flavor. Malty notes with a light dry finish. Solid balance and very light. Great, light beer for the summer.

Disappointed for the price tag, great head but not as exciting as I was hoping for. Go Heels.

mansquito (3909) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Churchkey, DC tap ($6): Pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is just straight Belgian singel. Taste is straight up Belgian singel. Where is the sourness? Where is the funk? Where is the brett? I might have got a tinge of the funky earthiness, but just a tinge. This is pretty much the same as any Belgian blonde ale and the name is kind of a misnomer. Tis a disappointment.

Sharp sour cheese aroma. Smells like a sunburn. Golden with rocky white head. Sweet easy pils type malt taste. Slightly earthy. Big letdown.

portableparty (2000) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours hazy pale yellow with a soapy white head that fades to a sudsy film and collar. Aroma is malt yeast and grain/corn. Taste is all of the above with a subtle funky tartness. Palate is thin to medium with a dry finish. This is either a very poor sour/wild or very young!

Tmoney99 (11564) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear yellow color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour & sweet flavor with a medium sweet & sour finish of moderate duration. This is a soft beer for style.
