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.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2009 Sweet and really sparkly- alcohol flavor. Very generic tasting. At Beerfest Miami 09

750ml bottle...might have had this one sit a bit too long and/or had a bad bottle, so I’ll try to tone down my true thoughts on this one and give it another try in the future. Poured a light brown color with no head to speak of (bottle appeared to be under carbonated). Aroma is spicy and had notes of cinnamon, raisin, and an odd funk that did not agree with the other aromas. Flavor was very oxidized and full of cardboard...caught some notes of spice and raisin, but the cardboard notes were just overwhelming. From what I could pick up on, this acted a lot more like a saison than a belgian strong, but who knows...again, I’ll temper my true thoughts and pick up another bottle in the future.

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Slightly hazy amber beer. Sourish medicinal flavours with bitter coca cola. Yeasty bitterness. Too medicinal and bitter.

Huge explosion as I take off the cage, gushes everwhere and now finished cleaning. A-pours a murky dirty dark brown color with way too much lightly tan colored fluffy head. S-rough, stale grain and light yeast notes. fair bit of sugary malts, caramel and candied sugar. T-the taste is rough, light notes of belgian style yeast with hints of malt sweetness try to fight through an aweful flavor or stale grain and rust. An underlying caramel malt with notes of dry figs tries to play a role but wow is this offensive. Could it be infected? M-syrupy medium body with low carbonation and a semi dry finish. smooth and creamy but rough in the back. D-not sure what’s wrong with this but there is some offensive notes of rusty metal and acetone in this.

Bottles pours dark orange with fizzy tan head. Nail polish remover, soy sauce, caramel. Moderately sweet. Mild bitterness. I couldn’t get through a full glass.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2010
Tasting at Papsø
Red-amber color; the head, initially large, disappears quickly. The aroma is not very positive: medical alcohol, Band-Aid, glue, nail polish, some Bretts and very light fruits and vinegar. Caramel flavor, dry, with light nail polish presence, alcohol. Unpleasant, I won’t drink one more sip.

750mL bottle, sent from Codysjb (thanks a lot, Cody), pours a hazy dark, dirty amber with a giant beige head. Nose is like a cosmetic department of a Sears, with perfume and chemically qualities. Flavour is very strange, with paint thinner, perfume, yeasty tones, and very dry dark fruits. Very carbonated, but fitting for the style. Not sure how this qualifies as a saison - it’s a big chemically mess, though not entirely undrinkable. Not at all recommended.

Bottle from South Bay Drugs: After unscrewing the wire the cork exploded out and snapped the wire in a huge explosion. I’m so glad it didn’t blow up in my face because that was some explosion. Second complaint I have about this beer is the aroma, it has a strange smell of a non-alcoholic malted beverage. The flavor is just the same and instead of tasting like a beer it taste very similar to a bottle of Malta Goya which I don’t care for too much.

750ml bottle from South Bay Drugs. Pours a medium brown color with a HUGE off white/ beige head. Nose was quite funky with hints of bacteria and yeast. Palate was full of yeast while being way over carbonated......drain pour.
