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.

thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 3, 2010
Bottle.
Beautiful, completely clear amber with a small, creamy, white head. Fine duration. Aroma has toasted caramel, light cellar, some fruitiness. Low carbonation, but still with lots of small bubbles. Kinda creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, quite a lot of caramel, some viniousness. There is a bit of spiciness and light peppery touch at the end. Fairly drinkable, though it might be a tad over the top now.
