NeuroPliny (247) - Calgary, Alberta, - MAR 24, 2013
On tap at lost Abbey. Pours clear yellow with a medium head that fades to fine lace. Light fruit aroma on a background of subtle spice with orange peel coming through in particular. They say it is slightly fruity and that the brettanomyces yeast (aka Brett) gives it some funk and I certainly concur. Meady yet spicy. Awesome American saison.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Very good, nice foam, head. Quite spicy and herbal. More a summery than a winter saison.

Aroma is of brett, pepper, citrus, soft fruits Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild pepperiness from the rye, mild sourness from the yeast. Great saison

BlackHaddock (7416) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Cork and caged bottle (8% ABV) brought back from California by me to share with friends. 24th July 2017, five of us tucked into the beer during our monthly exchange evening in Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Slight haze to the golden amber body, big white topping that gave off some decent lacing. Spiced aroma with some sour fruit esters. The taste is also spicy with some sour fruits, it’s peppery and fairly bitter flavour wise. A very pleasant Saison all round.

Vom Fass im Stone Brewing Berlin 2016-11 getrunken. Süffiges und etwas langweiliges Saison, aber gut gemacht wie alle Lost Abbey Biere die ich im Glas hatte.

Pours a hazy amber from a bottle, thick white head with some lacing. Fruity aroma, like baked apples or some roasted pears or something. Slightly spicy flavor with a bit of funk. Nicely balanced. Pretty good beer.
