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.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Bottle thanks to BigMilly8. Pours a dirty ruby orange with a late forming off white head. Nose is of fruity malts, breads, funk, tropical fruits, and yeast. Due to the nose I was anticipating a huge acidic flavor but this was not the case. Plums, yeast, bready malts, fresh oranges, doughy malts, candy sugars, with a touch of spiciness (I assume from the fine yeast particulates that now lay at the bottom of the bottle). Very light bodied and quite refreshing as the alcohol only becomes noticeable once this warms.

pantanap (3357) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2008
bottle thanks to santa.....pours a muddled orange brown with a fastly dissipating head.....some spice and tart-fruity in the nose. something else is a little off but i can’t put my finger on it.....a sweetness dominates the flavor with more of that spice, a little banana, etc....this really wasn’t for me.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle shared by artusory. Hazy copper/fiery orange body, medium off-white to buff head. Light tart, fruity nose, again with the plastic, band-aid notes I picked up in the Saison Athene. Sweet, sugary body with a light earthy finish, tainted by plasticy phenols. The sweetness is rather flabby. I had a hard time getting past the phenols, and couldn’t enjoy this much.

Very drinkable belgian strong. A little yeasty taste, not sure how old it was. A little sour taste, and very well hidden alcohol.

Received in the homebrew mystery swap. Slightly cloudy gold, white head with nice lacing. Nose is lightly fruity cork, some wood, yeast, grapes. Flavor is corky malt, soft yeasty fruit, a bit oxidized in the finish. Very nice.

BBB63 (6051) - 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.
