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.

Pours out hazy goldish amber. Strong fruity smell, creamy white head. This is a very tasty saison, farmhouse stye belgium ale.

Beerbuddha (100) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 7, 2010
Appearance- This beer poured a nice murky, amber color with a HUGE fluffy off white head which stay around awhile. Lacing is present throughout the life of this beer. Smell- Tons of fruit smells are present such as cherry, strawberry, plums and hints of apple. Nice malty breadiness is present as well. Taste- Taste and smell are very similar here with the fruits coming through. The sweet and tart fruit flavors are well balanced. Nice maltiness in the middle which leaves a nice sweetness in the mouth leaving you wanting more. Mouthfeel- This is a nice medium body brew with medium carbonation. Overall- Overall this is a great beer made by a small brewery. It’s an easy drinking beer with an ABV that leaves you with a warm feeling. The size of the beer(750ml)means you’re drinking a fair amount of beer so you need to be in the mood to drink or share with a friend or two.

Floback (524) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 750 ml bottle courtesy of SoLan. Thanks bro!! Much anticipation upon opening, as I loved the Saison Athene by this brewery. Pours an appealing honey-orange body underneath a small white rim that disappears quickly. Nose qualities are similar to a saison: honey, citrus, and a subtle yeast skunkiness. Mouth flavors are almost subtler than the nose with similar notes of honey, estery spices, pear, and apple cider. Soft/medium carbonation, medium body. Extremely drinkable; no trace of the 8% ABV in the palate or character. A great beer.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Pours a pretty dark orange and brown with very minimal head off a careful pour. Nose is yeasty, funky, goodness. Flavor is full and even. Nice, fairly long lasting flavor ride. Noticeable sugar. Nice even spiced edge. This is just damn smooth. Great mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Amazing Belgian style production out of the U.S.

i’ve run into so many disappointments lately. it is nice to have a pleasant surprise. dark brown orange pour with a thick gray head. sweet fruity nose with a bit of something that reminds me of fresh cut cilantro and limes. rich thick flavor that has some pineapple and mango with a prune sweetness that is wonderful. DEFINITELY A HIGHER GRAVITY BEER. THIS THINGS WARMS ME UP ON A COLD MORNING. , fuck you, capslock. warming dry finish that has a good lingering yeasty dough and orange flavors. 12 bucks a bottle and i do not feel ripped off. 5 8 8 5 17

Draft at Paradiso Dupont. Murky orange brown, no head or lacing to speak of. Aroma of sour orange peel and coriander, but no wheat. Taste is spiced orange with a hoppy finish. Delicious!

Finding this brewery and this beer has made my need to return to Belgium a bit less urgent. It’s clean, just dry enough, has a tiny edge of funk that I personally find very desirable. These guys are the closest decent brewery to my refrigerator. I’m going to do my best to get their product on the shelves of one of our local packey’s.

Pours a nice amber color. Smells of fruits, lemon zest, spices and yeast. Flavor is apple, figs, spices, belgian candy sugar and yeast. Medium body and sweet then dry finish. Great beer!

This is a big beer that wears it’s weight well. Big aroma of watermelon. Fantastic. Pours brown with a light head that fades rapidly. Nice sourness on the tongue blends very nicely with those traditional Belgian yeast notes. Has some linger to the finish. Very nice!

Saint Somewhere Lectio Divina is a well-executed Belgian Strong Ale. Aroma of prunes and plums coming from this dark orange-brown pour with a thick tan head that holds throughout the drink. Taste is heavy prunes and plums with a touch of funkiness. I wouldn’t say Lectio Divina is a standout Belgian ale, but is certainly enjoyable.
