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.

The aroma is cider like with yeast, fruit, flowers, spice, and corn malt. The appearance is hazy amber. The flavor is like the aroma and light. The palate is thin but OK. I like it.

lb4lb (2574) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2008
Bottle shared at tasting. Pours cloudy and a dark caramel color with a big lasting creamy beige head. Smell is mild and dusty malt. Too mild in fact. Taste is similarly tame, and slightly sweet with not much going on flavorwise. Hints of dusty sweet spice which become almost a touch cloying in the end. Not something I’d be crazy about having again.

TeamTrappist (830) - jericho, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2008
750ml bottle. Med brown and cloudy color. Very light nose, some typical belgian scents. Overall found this to be pretty sweet, with a nice overall flavor. Belgian yeasts were also noticeable. Very nice smooth finish, but very short lived.

Thanks to BeerLando for the 750ml bottle. Cloudy dark orange color with a large head. Aroma was yeasty (banana) with caramel malt and a hint of spice. Very sweet flavor, medium body and kind of boring.

rodenbach99 (3573) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Bouteille de 750ml avec bouchon de liège. Édition 2009. Pas le gusher escompté, le liquide est orangée, trouble, très trouble, peu de mousse. Nez épicée, de caramel, de fruits secs et de levure parfumée. En bouche le liquide prend beaucoup d’expansion, la mousse envahit la bouche. Le goût tourne autour du caramel, de la levure. 6/10

GT2 (9347) - 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.

The label of my "Lectio Divina" has the words "Amber Ale" in place of "Dark" on the banner. Not sure if this is the same beer. Anyway, this beer doesn’t cut it as a Belgian Ale for me. There is a lot of sweetness here, but no bite, and the beer is nearly flat as well. A sticky, bleh afteraste is also unpleasant.

ekstedt (5978) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2008
Bottle (75 cl), thanks to marsiblursi. Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Tropical fruits, especially tangerine and oranges, in the aroma. Spicy and sugary as well. Medium bodied and smooth. Too sweet.

Bottled. Thx marsiblursi. Amber with a small, white head. Pretty sweet and malty aroma. Flavour from cedar and some light toffee.

Thanks to iowaherkeye for bringing this bottle to his ’farewell to Iowa’ tasting. My first beer from Florida. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange color. with a soap bubble white head. The aroma was fruit dominated (especially pear) with a bit of toffee underneath. There was also a whiff of chlorinated pool water. Kind of like that smell you sometimes get in a the hotel lobby that lets you know there is a pool somewhere in the building. Very fruity and semi-sweet. I tasted pear, apple, peach, and rock candy. Akin to a fruit liqueur.
