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.

bu11zeye (12565) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 3, 2008
(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy burnt orange body with a small white head. Aroma of apple, caramel, dough, and light herbs. Flavor of apple, floral hops, orange peel, earthiness, alcohol, and herbs with a disappointingly low level of carbonation in the mouthfeel.

Lubiere (12285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
A hazed reddish dark amber with a thick frothy mocha head, gusher. In aroma, a sour malt with cherries, brett, dark fruits, fruit sourness, OK. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with fruity notes, cherries, sour yet still good.

mcberko (11989) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from Codysjb (thanks a lot, Cody), pours a hazy dark, dirty amber with a giant beige head. Nose is like a cosmetic department of a Sears, with perfume and chemically qualities. Flavour is very strange, with paint thinner, perfume, yeasty tones, and very dry dark fruits. Very carbonated, but fitting for the style. Not sure how this qualifies as a saison - it’s a big chemically mess, though not entirely undrinkable. Not at all recommended.

bierkoning (11878) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2011
Corked bottle from EricAndersNavy, thanks! Amber color, very lively carbonation. Melon, pineapple, grassy notes and caramel in the aroma. Pear, mango, caramel and leather in the malty sweet flavor. Just a touch of alcohol. Leather and pear drups in the aftertaste.

jcwattsrugger (11862) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2008
750ml bottle-pours a foamy to rocky light tan head and hazy copper color. Aroma is yeasty, vinegar, earthy, medium malt, some caramel. Taste is medium malt-some caramel, yeasty, vinegar/tart, secondary earthy/copper/spice hops. Medium body. Interesting. Occasional.

thewolf (11843) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (11665) - Escondido, California, USA - SEP 15, 2008
750 mL bottle. Pours hazy amber with an average, fizzy, light brown head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw), average hops (flowers, grass), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of apple, pear, raspberry, and wood. Full bodied, sticky and gritty texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Degarth. 1st batch. Thanks! Looks like unfiltered apple cider in the glass. Medium sized frothy head that diminishes quickly. Funky, caramelly, butterscotchy, fruity aroma. Taste is strong caramel with prunes, spice. Thick texture, nicely carbonated.

courtesy of Chris Beers - pours a cloudy copper-brown colour under a huge foamy beige head; unclean aroma with notes of caramel, yeasts, brandy and undefined spices; medium to full malt body; fresh spicy and bready finish; quite long - interesting
