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.

rbrazell (1701) - 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 (5045) - 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 (1999) - 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 (7193) - 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.

Bottles pours dark orange with fizzy tan head. Nail polish remover, soy sauce, caramel. Moderately sweet. Mild bitterness. I couldn’t get through a full glass.

jrallen34 (3483) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2011
bottle... really dark orange, a bit of amber, light tan head is gone right away... strange and off putting aroma, confusing, candy vokda, very alcohol, sharp, saison characteristics come through on the back, musky jolly rancher saison... taste is equally strange, just borderline terrible, a dubbel and saison do not mix... pass

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, cloudy, a little rusty, large beige head, foamy, somewhat sticky lacing.   Reminds me of an aged Dubbel, yet a little lighter.   Very musty, basement like, with notes of figs and dates.   Had you given me a glass of this and not said what it was, I would think produced in Belgium.   Semi-sweet sticky malts up front, a little prickly with the carbonation, slight caramel and pale citrus peel.   otherwise we are talking figs, dates, and some minor prune.   A little bready, albeit moreso spritzy.   Better than I expected.   There is a little alcohol there, but it doesn’t burn.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Feels a little airy/bubbley, which makes me think this is even more authentic.   Musty basement like funk on the finish.   Soft dark pitted fruit lingers.   It really feels like a smaller version of a Dubbel.   I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.   Worth a try at least.

Very nice fruity aroma with some Belgian spice and a little bread. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin bubbly head. The flavor has a lot of fruit along with the spices. There is also an underlying bite of wood and vanilla. Lots of things going on here. The finish is dry and crisp.

wild and yeasty, tons of foamy head that recedes quickly. funk on the nose, almost milky smelling (sounds bad but it’s fantastic), great belgian fruits and rustic malts. touch of tang and hops on the finish. complex beer. original.
