Its an unassuming road leading to the priory. Here, off the corner of two intersecting roads, dedicated monks have been making beer for over 150 years. Its always been a simple life the kind that requires they brew only enough to sustain the activities of their monastery In the silence of passing seasons, they pray, they brew and retire in a solitary existence behind the sheltering walls. They live a most interesting life. Most likely one we wouldnt sustain. Nearby, each summer, the trellised fields spring to life as rows of resinous green cones are trained toward the heavens. Rumor is some monks love these hops and being surrounded by budding yellow aromas and the leafy pungent fields inspires them. Since we werent sensible enough to locate our brewery near hop fields, we can only offer this blond ale in celebration of our Abbey brethren and their steadfast Devotion.

Big hoppy belgian brew. Pours slightly hazy gold with a tall white head. Sort of doughy and honey malt flavor with a grassy hop finish. Crisp and light on the palate letting some of the earthy esters stand out. Like a belgian pils, nice beer.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Pours a cloudy light copper color with a persistent 1 cm thick white head. Aroma has a fresh grassiness of which hops is one component, others being a Belgian yeastiness and a slight spicy malt profile. The taste is dry, with some yeast coming out towards the finish, which has a definite hop presence, even though it isnt really strong. Some the characteristics here reminded me of a saison. An interesting brew.

750mL bottle. Deep golden orange with a thin film of white head. Spicy, herbal hop aromatics with phenolic yeast character. Grassy, floral flavors up front. Woody, earthen flavors with a sweet, yeasty malt component. Tinges of fruity esters in the finish with a soft hop bitterness and a residual vegetal character. Mouthfeel is a medium, low carbonation.

StefanSD (2436) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - NOV 15, 2007
650 ml bottle from South Bay Drugs. Pours a cloudy unfiltered yellow-orange color with a big fluffy white head that slowly dissipates to !/4 inch and leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is mild in strength with notes of sweet breads, caramel and earthy yeast. The flavor is slightly biter with green hops, cedar, and thyme. The mouthfeel is silky smooth, full and satisfying. The Finish features more biter hops. Overall: This is a fine drinkable Belgian. Recommended.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Pours a foggy golden brown with minimal head. Nose is earthy and almost like a raw sugar. Nice level of smooth funk there. Flavor is nice and consistent. Nothing showy or strange, but mature in its profile and completely even. Feel is smooth with a higher level of carbonation. This is a very good belgian ale. If you have the chance to try it, I think you should.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2007
Poured a cloudy red/brown color with a small white head. Aroma is mostly dominated by banana bread with a lot of carmel. Flavors are alot like the aroma. Strong, spicy banana bread with some earthy hops coming through in the finish.

750 ml bottle, from Patron Saints club delivery. Pours hazy light orangey amber with a huge fluffy off-white head. Fruity, bready, yeasty aroma, citrus, honey and clover, floral hops and herbs. Pleasant but mild flavor that become more pronounced as it warms, toasty, wheaty maltiness, orange notes, mild spice and a nice crisply bitter citric and floral hop finish. Light to medium body and fine, gentle carbonation. Easy drinking, enjoyable beer.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bottle: Dark marmalade in color, very hazy, thick, large foamy off-white head, clumpy lacing.   Herbal/Floral aroma, slightly earthy, a little barnish and/or musty.   Somewhat weird as it has an herbally aspect to it I havent seen in any other beers.   Flavor comes across pretty much the same, low hop presense, with a majority of it being this earthy floral and herbal combination.   Slightly dry, very minor sweetness.   Seems to have a very minor astringent woodiness, maybe its weeds, like dandelion maybe?   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finish is a little astringent, weed like astringency.   Yeah, I would say this is like a floral/herbal earthy pale belgian, as it does have a bit of musty/barnish qualities.   However, it also has this really week Dandelion stalk like astringency.   Not bad, but pretty plain.   Probably my least liked Lost Abbey so far.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Bottle via trade with JCB (I think...). Aroma of orange rind, cut grass, soap and spicy and dry yeast. Pours hazy orange with a bright white head. Simple flavor of light malt with a lively dry yeast component. Creamy on the palate with fizzy carbonation. Decent, but unspectacular.
