COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A life worth living is full of discovery and we are reminded everywhere there is opportunity. All it takes is desire to seek out and find these things, these moments and everything in between. We brewed Lost and Found Abbey Ale to pay homage to the great monastic breweries of Belgium. Like us, we hope youll take the time to discover a beer that breathes aromas of figs, raisins and candied fruits. Please join us by raising your glass as we offer a toast to patience, perseverance, and all the things we have lost along the way and were somehow lucky enough to find once again.

3fourths (9211) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Full nose of spicy brown sugar yeast, toast, nuts and dark fruit. Up front, though, it’s candied sugar cherry and a little wet/harsh/thin. Even smells a little bit boozy for 7-8%. Seems like it has the gravity to try to be a stronger Belgian, but as that it lacks body and smoothness. For a dubbel, it’s decent enough, has some nice sugary yeast esters, some caramel malt and candied bananas, but again, it lacks smoothness. Good but not great.

750. Thanks, Aspidites! Murky brownish amber. Thick moussy bubbles and intensely deep tan head. Lots of stalagtites on the side of the glass, too. Big musty apricto and plum nose. Smells like breakfast preserves you might spread on toast. Plummy body in a huge way--nougaty, too, and sweet, delicious...but almost too sweet.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Pours a ruddy brown color with a thin off-white head at the edges of the glass. Looks well-carbonated. Belgian yeast aroma with a pit fruit character. The carbonation plays well on the palate. Taste is moderately sweet, with some caramel and spice notes present. A good dubbel.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2007
750ml. Pours dark ruby with a tiny but well sustained white head. Aroma is very sweet, syrupy, dark fruits, but in a good way. Raisins. Smells like a lighter version of a Bernardus 12 or a Rochefort 10. Or maybe thats just the raisins. Tastes the same as the aroma. Yeah, this is pretty good.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Bottle from a case that was reportedly flat, but I managed to achieve carbonation with some TLC in my cellar. Amber-brown body with a medium, fading beige head. Sweet, peanutty malt aroma with cocoa and cooked banana notes. Evident caramelization in the flavor, plus an aspect of rubber tire. Warms nicely though. Develops into an understated, pleasing sipper. Good American Abbey Dubbel overall.

DYCSoccer17 (3649) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2007
750 ml bottle shared by grant. Thanks. Metallic, sweet, fruity, peaty aromas present. I detect some brown sugar/molasses as well. Mildly hazy dark amber/garnet body with a small, delicate yellow-tan head. Rather attractive. Malty sweet start, becoming vinous, chewy, fruity, with some molasses-like flavors. Nice bubbly, spritzy carbonation in the middle. Finishes roasted and chewy. Im a big fan of this stuff.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Brown coloured with a bit of a tan head. Very carbonated but thin mouthfeel. Chocolatey flavours and a bit of sour in there as well.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Rich date-like flavor. The palate is very thin for the style and is not great. Also, there is something just a tiny bit off on the finish, like an in-harmonious bitterness.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt, belgian yeast, spices, bubblegum, and brown sugar. Flavor is similar, dominated by the malt and spices. Decent dubbel.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2007 Dark amber/brownish color. Very smooth with flavors of figs, raisins, caramel, cherries, and other items contributing to this very sweet ale. I would have preferred a little more balance in the sweet department, but I think that is what they were going for anyway. Does not compare to the trappist beers it was trying to imitate.
