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.

An ol’ brew had at Brewfest 11’. The body had a nice yellow hue to it - murky as well. I liked this one more than the Athene. Lots of dried citrus in this one, some light herbs and grapefruit mainly. The finish was light and tart, and a hint of alcohol to mellow the senses..

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Slightly hazy amber beer. Sourish medicinal flavours with bitter coca cola. Yeasty bitterness. Too medicinal and bitter.

CanIHave4Beers (3556) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Pours a beautiful chestnut color with a small loose head that fizzes away like cola.

The aroma is rich and fruity with lots of cherry, plum, some dustiness, with mild spiciness and very mild chocolate.

The flavor is very enjoyable, fruity, mildly sweet, spicy, and has a mild cherry note. The beer has a big booziness, I’d have guessed this a bit higher gravity than it is, as it is it’s warming and not wholly unpleasant. A little bit of cough syrup, some woodiness, and a good bit of raisin round this one out.

jkwood04 (4645) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 16, 2012
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 (3974) - 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.

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

Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours muddy brown. Nose/taste of pear, sweet caramel, sweet malt, dark fruits, toffee and yeast. Medium body.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, 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 (5359) - 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.
