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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2007
750ml bottle courtesy of Dragonstout. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of cloves, bananas, citrus, caramel, molasses and spice. Tastes of spice, dry malt, caramel, some residual sugar. Well balanced and mellow with a clove like finish. Nice!

Floback (545) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 750 ml bottle courtesy of SoLan. Thanks bro!! Much anticipation upon opening, as I loved the Saison Athene by this brewery. Pours an appealing honey-orange body underneath a small white rim that disappears quickly. Nose qualities are similar to a saison: honey, citrus, and a subtle yeast skunkiness. Mouth flavors are almost subtler than the nose with similar notes of honey, estery spices, pear, and apple cider. Soft/medium carbonation, medium body. Extremely drinkable; no trace of the 8% ABV in the palate or character. A great beer.

Bottle from Beerlando. Mostly clear amber with a small beige head. The nose is lightly sweet, vinous and floral with caramel and golden raisins. Flavor is light sweet with cotton candy, toffee, raisins and herbal hops. Medium body is very soft with very light carbonation. Just a bit more attenuation and higher carbonation and this would be outstanding.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle from SoLan- Slightly hazy bronze/copper color. Almost no head. Nose is apple ciderish, some dark fruit notes mix with yeasty esters. Drinking this suprises, Belgian style from Florida? Flavor actually hits most of the Belgian profile, the esters and sweet darker flavors are there and meld well together. Carbonation is just slightly lower than I’d like. Finishes with vanilla and hints of spice.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pours a hazy copper orange with a tiny white head that doesn’t cover the surface of the beer. The aroma is of apple cider more than anything else, with hints of banana and other yeasty smells underneath. In the mouth, it’s moderately carbonated and neither thin nor thick. As sweet as the aroma is, the flavor is relatively dry (relative to the aroma, anyway). It tastes more like a cider or white wine than a beer to me, but it’s interesting.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pours a hazy dull orange with thin white head. The aroma has a nice fruitiness with apples, grapes and pears followed by mild spiciness, yeast, candi sugar and a faint note of beat sugar. The flavor starts with an initial wave (tiny wave) of malt sweetness that quickly becomes over taken by red grapes, sweet red delicious apples, pears and beats. There’s also hints of candi sugar, spices and some faint yeastiness. Very nice.

3fourths (8788) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2007
750ml. Murky gold and amber colored body with a small and thin white head. Heavy apple and honey nose, with some spiced bread and cinnamon notes as well. Sweet and sticky apple cider malt flavor up front, with a strange plastic and resinous malt syrup flavor throughout. Finishes sweet and chewy, with a moderately strong yeast presence - honey, banana, fruit, some soggy bread, etc. Unique, but not fantastic.

750mL bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a hazy, bright orange color; perimeter of off-white bubbles at the edges. Very pleasant aroma, showing esters and chewy bananas and Belgian sugars; soft and creamy nose. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: red fruit, bananas, and chewy esters; solid chewiness and plenty of sugar, but resists being sticky sweet; good yeast character, with a medium, yeasty and vanilla finish. Tasty stuff.
