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 (2583) - 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.

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 (4068) - 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

GT (9933) - Oceanside, 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6484) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2012
UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 From the 3/2012 3R6P tasting. +++Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-orange color with a huge sudsy tan head that left no lacing. The aroma was very bitter and tart with notes of peach and vinegar. The flavor was peach, lemon, nut and bread with faint vinegar and a cream undertone. The finish was long peach, bread and vinegar and turned a bit dry. Medium body. Ok.

Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew. Pours a hazy red body with thin white head. Aroma is muted sour cherry, and belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of somewhat offensive fruity malts, dry bitterness, very like cherries and berry.

Bottle. Pours dark orange-reddish color with a large head that disappears quickly. Smells of some fruit, berries. alcohol. Taste is tart, with a lot of fruit and alcohol finish. Not bad but the tartness takes over in a not-so-good ways.

Purchased a 750 ml Bottle at Whole Foods in Tampa, FL about 3 weeks ago. The cork says it is a 2013 vintage? It sat around that long? Very dark Amber color without much head. The aroma is very herbal and yeasty. The flavor show a bigger yeast profile with tea leaves, mint and mild notes of alcohol. The bitterness is lingering and herbal. Body is medium with an unpleasant after taste. This could fair better if fresh. I thought I was buying a current vintage, oh well.
