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.

harrisoni (16735) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle at Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Cloudy orange/brown colour, lasting beige head. Airfix glue aroma. And malt vinegar. Bit better in mouth, but pretty bad. What a difference from the Saison Athene which was stunning.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - APR 10, 2011
Bottle from 2008. Pours a dark amber color with a tall tan head that is rocky in nature. There is an interesting fruitiness to the nose that is lightly tart as well. Some red apples, floral notes, spices, yeast, and bready malts are all present on the nose. The flavor is quite similar, but there is a distinct alcohol note, especially on the back end. Otherwise there are good fruit, spice, and yeast flavors to the beer. Medium to full bodied for a saison with a rather high carbonation.

Oakes (14844) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2008
Hazy amber. Fruity, with a touch of footiness. Fizzy carbonation. Some figgy, fruity notes and light caramel. A bit too yeasty for my liking, but I’ll be giving this a re-rate down the road.

bhensonb (13622) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 15, 2008
750 ml. bottle, corked and caged, from Bottle Trek. The cork put a dent in the ceiling. The foam tried to escape the bottle. Hazy amberish color with a tan head that went up and down quite quickly. Aromas of cola, raisins, treacle, and light stone fruits. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor matches the aroma. This stuff is really complex. I get a bit of chocolate towards the finish. Think there’s a lot of sugar, but it’s not sticky sweet. It’s not bitter, but there seems to be spice that offsets the sugar. It’s really good ale. I just had Fantome Black Ghost, and truly I think this is "better". MIght feel different on another day. Or not. Or to put it another way, who are these guys?
