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.

TwoSipDip (8898) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Thanks to Dr. Owl for sending. Pours a murky reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Candy sugar, orange candy, spicy funky yeasty, slightly spicy cinnamon aroma. Tangy tart grape/vinous, black cherry, caramel, funky yeasty flavor. High carbonation. Doesn’t blow my mind and kind of a creative idea but not my favorite. Shows a bit of age.

Poured at the Juptier brewfest. Copper pour. Medium white head. Aroma is very malty and has some great apple notes along with some spices. Flavor is tart apple, malt, woodsy notes and a bit of a dry finish. Very nice.

hopscotch (8785) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Bottle… Pours a cloudy orange/amber with a small, creamy, white head. Malty, estery nose offers notes of tropical fruit, resin, brand-new sneakers, red apple and praline. The flavor is sweet and grainy with an abundance of caramel accompanied by pear, peach and apple esters. Lightly acidic. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. Sweet, malty finish.

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2008
This one had a cuvee aroma and sour apples with big malting. A sipper. Easy drinker with understated carbonation.

JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2007
Bottle shared by someone (it was getting late). Deep amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is honeyish, some herbal and earthy character. Surprisingly light malts. Flavour is quite soft and fruity, some nice herbal notes, light mint and soft spiciness. A touch of light gruit-like mintiness. Lingering herbal spiciness. Very similar house character to the saison, but doesn’t come across as characterful as that beer did.

GT2 (8184) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. The pour is a cloudy raspberry tea color, very dirty deep orange. No head formation from the pour- fizzy tan bubbles rise and fall. The nose is baked apples, high esters, cinnamon toast, red fruits, cherry juice box. The taste is raspberry tea, bland and tannic with lemon. As it warms a hefty dose of spicy alcohol comes through with cinnamon waffle character. Palate is dry, powdery, fairly bitter and spicy in the finish. Candy and fruity in the aftertaste. Not saison in any form I know of.

Drake (8030) - 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.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2007
750ml. Murky gold and amber colored body with a small and thin white head. Heavy apple and honey nose, with some spiced bread and cinnamon notes as well. Sweet and sticky apple cider malt flavor up front, with a strange plastic and resinous malt syrup flavor throughout. Finishes sweet and chewy, with a moderately strong yeast presence - honey, banana, fruit, some soggy bread, etc. Unique, but not fantastic.
