The beer pours a hazy orange with hints of copper, the 750ml bottle is corked and caged with the head is portly and off white in color, the texture creamy, as it fades to nothingness, the lace provides a concealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is rich in spices, hints of peach, nice malt backing, crisp and fresh to the nose. Start is sweet and malty; the top is moderate in feel. Finish has a nice moderate acidity, hops are present and the fruity sweetness combines with the dry aftertaste, a great series of beers this "Lost Abbey”.

Good mild spicy Saison. Had a growler filled @ the brewery and it made for a great weekend.

Wow, excellent beer! Poured at a good good temperature with a mammoth, super frothy, foamy, billowy, off-white head and lots of clingy lace. Color is a very slightly hazy straw amber with some bubble trails. Aroma upon first pouring had a fleeting perfumey, fruity, honey, mustiness that quickly was replaced by malt, yeast, herbs. Flavor’s somewhat like nose, has a great bitter-carbonic tang balance with just enough sweetness to make this incredibly tasty and drinkable yet satisfying. Body and carbonation are perfect - great burps too. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and a bit boozy. One of the best saisons ever - including any Belgian.

Nice amb color with stable white foam. Rich fruity taste with mild sourness. DocLock (10836) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Port Brewing makes fantastic saisons, and this one is no exception, and may be considered world class, because I say so. Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid gold with a big, 3-finger, fluffy white head and lace that doesn’t stop. The aroma is huge Bretty funk, spicy black peppery and floral notes, and hopcitrus. The taste is funky and bready malty, with florals, hopcitrus, and spicy black pepper flavor. Complex palate, all the taste and flavor notes come together extremely well in this one, and make it a true beer for the ages. I’m just glad I bought 2 extra bottles of this. coreyc1221 (319) - Truckee, California, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Tart and floral with hints of peach aroma. cloudy golden color with a mid froth white head. Incredibly balanced light malt and strong floral at the start then mellows out nicely. This. Is. Amazing. Aineta (24) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 1, 2017

Pours a hazy, light orange body with a huge, creamy head and a veily, smokey trail of tiny sediments. This is really an a great example of what a nice craft beer should look like. Nose is very smooth, with light sweet malts, lime, grapefruit and hints of maize. The taste is astonishing and original; I can’t really wrap my head around this one. Classification is hard, especially since the "saison" label is so wide. Palate is rich, creamy and full-bodied, and yet highly drinkable - a real brewing feat as far as I’m concerned. As I try hard to dissect the flavors of this deliciously fine-tuned and craftily blended beer, corn flakes, dry hops and subtle sugary notes is all I can get. Still: this is just soooo good - a perfect summer ale that bears the mark of such a tight production that I’ve yet to encounter anything like it. Lost Abbey Little Red Barn Ale is smooth, subtle and highly original. Both thumbs up.
