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.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle: Coppery hue with a small fading head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, cherry, bready and caramel malts, hint of lacto funk, cardamom, clove and a note of band-aid medicinal vapor. The taste starts with candy sugar and old bread, hint of cobweb, yeasty and wheaty, banana and plum fruit note in the background. The mouth feel is soft and medium-bodied. Not shabby put left wanting more. (THX Ryan)

750ml bottle. Gift from Secret Santa. Pours a cloudy amber color with almost no head at all. Almost no carbonation. Nose is of light fruits, apples, pears, maybe oranges. Taste is mostly the same. Don’t know how old my bottle was as I could not find a date on it. Pretty good.

750 from Degarth. Shared with Bartzilla. Pretty damn tasty, really nice citrus flavors and a light refreshing taste from a belgian strong. Pretty tasty, I really liked this.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2007
750ml bottle from SoLan. Lots of sweet fruit on the aroma: crushed green grapes, apples, pear must. Caramel and gingerbread. Pours muddy orange with a thin white head leaving spotty lacing. Caramel apple is what instantly hits my tongue. A hint of spice followed by a necessary dry yeast flavor. Creamy. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Quite a bit better than the Saison.

Poured a light amber color no head or lacing. Aroma was peppery and grapes/pears. Flavor was much the same some other fruit in there. Mouthfeel was flat big time. This bottle wasn’t good, not sure if it was a bad bottle.

750, thanks to Ibrew2or3! Pours lightly hazy copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma of nuts and oxidized apples. Light body and medium carbonation. The taste has a character not unlike apple cider. Semi-dry finish. Nice!

750, corked like a beast. Thanks so much, Ibrew2or3! Medium amber with butterscotch highlights. Modest white film, no lace. Huge green apple nose. Medium, slightly creamy body carrying a ton of tight carb. Beautiful green apple and butterscotch mid-palate. Clean toasty finish.
