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.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, the fruitiness of a saison, and a good amount of floral hops. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

Cybercat (3194) - Georgia, USA - APR 26, 2012
The sample I got popped and fizzed like a champagne bottle in the locker room of the team that just won the World Series, so open with care and have a big, thirsty towel ready! It pours a clear, dark cinnamon-brown with a very thick, though not persistent, light tan head. Strong aroma is mainly fruity and yeasty with subtle hints of malt and butterscotch. Flavor has a fruity core, more like a cider, with notes of yeast and malt and a hint of caramel. Texture has about average body and a fair amount of fizz. Overall, not too shabby.

jredmond (5193) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 15, 2012
Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew. Pours a hazy red body with thin white head. Aroma is muted sour cherry, and belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of somewhat offensive fruity malts, dry bitterness, very like cherries and berry.

On tap at blind tiger. Sweet dry berry taste... Like a saison stylized version of Sapporo. Not that good

rbrazell (1568) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Pours a unclear deep amber with a fomay white head that fades fast and leaves no lacing. Nose of sweet caramel, cereal malts, light touches of dark fruits and some yeast funk. Sugary sweet entry with some grain that finishes quick and dry. Some noticeable alcohol as the beer warms.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4763) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 From the 3/2012 3R6P tasting. +++Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-orange color with a huge sudsy tan head that left no lacing. The aroma was very bitter and tart with notes of peach and vinegar. The flavor was peach, lemon, nut and bread with faint vinegar and a cream undertone. The finish was long peach, bread and vinegar and turned a bit dry. Medium body. Ok.

DalzAle (1941) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle thanks to newcigarz! Thank god for the cage on the bottle, as I was unwinding the cage the cork nearly shot to the moon! Dark hazy amber pour, plenty of carbonation and nice sweet malty and Belgian yeast aroma. Flavor is reminiscent of a good Belgian dubbel, dark cherry and slightly funky and yeasty on the finish. Very nice.

aroma is interesting, like a sharp fruity prickliness (similar to Cigar City’s Guava Grove), maybe what some would call nail polish remover, though i didn’t think of it as negative until i read that. pours a pretty copper with no head. flavor is on the sweet side with some alcohol warmth and lots of fruit: prune, apple, currant, tropical stuff. this is delicious, despite the odd and maybe solventy sharpness.

Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle on the Eurostar to Brussels, thanks to Leighton. It pours deep red-brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is caramel, toffee, wood, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisin and currant. The taste is currant, raisin, plum, prune, booze, wood, caramel, toffee, some brett, nut and spice, with a warming finish. Full body and lively carbonation, but goes flat quickly. Not too shabby, perhaps a bit too boozy and sweet for me though.
