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 dark cloudy brown with fast fading fizzy white head. Very woody tasting. Aromatic hints of apple like a cider.

kidobutai (424) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Cloudy orange unsettled look. Small head and no lacing. Smells like fingernail polish. Doesn’t taste as bad, but wouldn’t try it again.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Bottle from DragonStout. Pour was light amber, flat looking, no head, zero lacing. The aroma was light fruits, some pepper. The flavor was light fruits (peaches), musty wooden character, very light pepper in the finish. The mouthfeel was dead flat (and the cork was a super challenge to get out, jammed in there hard), need more carbonation, any amount of it. Thanks for the opportunity on this one, Brian.

Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle shared by artusory. Hazy copper/fiery orange body, medium off-white to buff head. Light tart, fruity nose, again with the plastic, band-aid notes I picked up in the Saison Athene. Sweet, sugary body with a light earthy finish, tainted by plasticy phenols. The sweetness is rather flabby. I had a hard time getting past the phenols, and couldn’t enjoy this much.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2008
(Bottle, thanks Degarth) Pours copper amber red. The aroma is light spicy, light malty and light fruity with apples, ripe pears, juicy oranges, melon, ginger, mild caramel, cookie, bread and sugar. Undertones of chlorine/swimming pool and alcohol. The flavour is malty, light fruity, light yeasty and light spicy with tones of dough, bread, oranges, apples and pears. Medium sweet, light bitter, light acidic and tart. The mouthfeel is a bit syrupy and watery. Aftertaste is sourish with some citric notes. Medium bodied.

Vinegary nose and taste. Too bubbly. Mellowed out when left to sit. May have been old or too heated.

750mL bottle aquired in trade from Daknole- WOOHOO! Served in trappist glass- after a long day, it’s nice to unwind a little. Cork came exploding out after taking off the cage, sounding like a low cal. gunshot, leaving a divot in the ceiling- good thing it wasn’t aimed towards my eye! High-medium carbonation, large head quickly bubbled away - ugh oh. Semi transparent darkened amber with copper tint in color, aroma of yeast, funk, dull sweetness, and a note of clove. Hits the mouth with medium body, malt can be found but a bit medicinal taste/alcohol burn is felt, middle has saison feel, finish is slightly dry. Up for a re-rate sometime down the line.

SlovakSniper (3371) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Le liquide a une robe brunâtre complètement voilée. Un petit anneau de mousse flotte avec délicatesse. Le nez permet de découvrir des parfums de caramel et de raisins. Une levure épicée se manifeste tout comme une légère pointe d’oxydation. Le goût est sensiblement le même, avec du sucre brun, de la levure et des fruits. Toujours cette touche dérangeante sur les papilles. Définitivement plus près d’une dubbel que d’une véritable saison. En bouche, le liquide a une tenue fine avec une texture légère et regrettablement pervertie par une effervescence que ne cesse de se mettre en abyme. La finale se fait du côté de la douceur avec une légère touche de fruit acidulé. Mauvaise bouteille?

Tasted at the May Northern California Beer Tasting. This Belgian Strong ale pours a deep orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Large sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, with a touch of sour/tartness. Medium bodied BSA. The malts are fruity and sweet with some sourness. For some reason I am picking up some artificial banana flavors here as well. The tartness is nice, but I don’t think it should be there. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.
