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.

The pour is a golden color with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, some fruity hops and esters such as lemon, pineapple, apple, and maybe some banana. Just the slightest musty funk in the background. Like the aroma, there is a sweetness to the flavor along with some slight tartness of citrus fruits. A hint of pineapple, some banana, and a touch of apple. Mild spice notes, too. Not really what I think most would expect, but still an enjoyable beer.

Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours hazy orange gold with a transient white head. Aroma is mild citrus over possible barnyard - gotta struggle for any hint. Med body. First impression is lots of sweet fruit. It’s kind of thickly fruity. Sour just is not in it. A little earthy, a hint of barnyard. Given the mouthfeel I’d be happy to label this an imperial saison. It’s an ok beer. I think I can even detect the indicated pineapple. But the "funky, sour edge"? Equate this as the Bud Light version of that. It is dryish. But not extremely so. It is so sad, but I put it down the drain to get into a Berryessa Brewery growler. Sigh!

Tmoney99 (11218) - 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.
