wow, not quite sure ive ever had a beer that fits its own description so well. This beer poured a cloudy straw yellow color with a big white head. Aroma was nice and spicey with hints of clover, some vineous character and yeast. Flavor was really spicey, wheaty, nice amount of hops, just almost hard to explain and extremely dry at the same time. this beer is more wine like than any that ive ever had. Excellent! fidel (1302) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 21, 2008

22 oz. bottle on 11/1/08. Clear gold pour with a large, durable white head, and stringy lace. Fruity aroma, apricots and light stone fruit, some yeastiness, fresh grain and biscuit all combine well. Light to medium body, very effervescent, clean and dry. Floral honey comes through initially, supplanted early by a spicy bitterness that is well balanced. Very refreshing, clean, yet with a wonderful complexity that begs attention. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours clear gold with a puffy white head. Lemon, citrus, and spice in the nose. Fair amount of the same in the taste, but with honey and earthy farmhouse notes. Taverner made a great call with the Sangria-like flavor of this one. A bit too carbonated, but still enjoyable.

Color is a deep gold with great carbonation and a tight white head. Aroma is a mellow citrus scent with a grassy tone and a sour Belgian yeast note. Taste is lemony and sour. Starting with a bold medium body it goes down smooth. Finish comes with a creamy caramel malt flavor then a bold lemon with some sour notes comes in backed by citrus hops and a gentle bitterness. After taste is a lingering citrus bitterness. I think this is one of Lost Abbey’s better brews, most of the others I have tried had low carbonation which took away from there overall enjoyment.

Bottle: Pours a slightly effervescent hazy golden with a dense, lacing white head. Nice yeast character in the aroma. Fruity, dusty, zesty lemon peel, cider-like notes, subtle earthy brett and farmhouse notes. The body has a rich and crisp carbonation. Nice yeast character. Starts with a slightly spicy citrus character, followed by white peppery phenols, a touch of pineapple as well. Some smooth Belgian pale malts peak through the earthy yeast profile. Finishes peppery and dry. Nice stuff, has a great yeast composition. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Hazy gold with a soft white head. High carbonation keeps this very drinkable, dry, light and airy with big estery floralness. Lots of citrus comes through. Good dry tripel. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2008
