COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lectio Divina is a cross between an abbey double and a saison. Open fermentation with a saison strain and a dose of wild yeast at bottling add to the complexity.

Bottle sent by Weezel, thanks! Pours a really hazy orange brownish with an off white head and lots of lacing in the glass, aroma is pretty interesting, some sweetness mixed with a kick of a little bit of funk and barnyard and fruit at the same time, the flavor has a sweet and caramel front end with a fruit yet funky finish, slightly sour but nothing crazy, just a little different, interesting for sure.

Le bouchon de liège a "poppé" dès que j’ai enlevé le bidule métallique qui le "protégeait". Du danger en partant, j’adore ça. L’épaisse mousse beige qui trônait au sommet de la robe très trouble (surtout à la fin) et cuivrée s’est effritée très rapidement. Une odeur de ketchup aux fruits et de bretts nous fait complètement oublier que l’on a affaire à un hybride entre une saison et une dubbel. Le côté dubbel n’est plus là du tout ou presque, autant au nez qu’en bouche. Très acétique et pétillante, un aspect sucré et épicé discret se pointe en toute fin de gorgée. Les bretts sont omniprésents, apportant un caractère assez fruité (mangue) à la bière. Sur papier, c’était invitant, mais en réalité, c’était correct, sans plus. Bouteille âgée de 2 ans (2012).

750ml bottle, from Dutch’s. Shared with friends over a game of Catan. Totally hazy red orange color. Thin khaki head. Some loose dots and ropes of lace, nothing sticks. Medium to bigger body. Soft, kind of sharper carbonation. Gets smooth after a chance to mellow out, though. Finishes dry. Bigger bitter taste, lightly spicy. Nice dark fruit, belgian yeast, light spice aromas. Kind of peppery. Maybe a very light bit of tartness to it gets more noticeable as I go, not really "sour" though at this point. Solid, interesting saison.

Bottle. Pours dark orange-reddish color with a large head that disappears quickly. Smells of some fruit, berries. alcohol. Taste is tart, with a lot of fruit and alcohol finish. Not bad but the tartness takes over in a not-so-good ways.

Bottle at Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to adnielsen for bringing the bottle. Pours a hazy orangish tan color with white head. Malty, slight nutty, caramel, funky aromas. Very tangy, caramel, dusty, yeasty flavors. Not a huge fan of this one.

NielsenRatings (8279) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to Dr. Owl for sending. Pours a murky reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Candy sugar, orange candy, spicy funky yeasty, slightly spicy cinnamon aroma. Tangy tart grape/vinous, black cherry, caramel, funky yeasty flavor. High carbonation. Doesn’t blow my mind and kind of a creative idea but not my favorite. Shows a bit of age.

Cloudy orange unsettled look. Small head and no lacing. Smells like fingernail polish. Doesn’t taste as bad, but wouldn’t try it again.
