Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden color with a fairly thick frothy white head on it. Nose is light and citrusy with a little bit of wild farmhouse smells to it - really light and inviting. Taste is actually light and crisp, with a slight bit of citrus to it. Really nice brew. Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014

My Bottom Line:rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2014
Deep cereals, rustic fermentation character and herbal hop bitterness coalesce in this very authentic, effervescent French farmhouse brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A dollop of foam sits atop the cloudy gold.
-Mouthfeel is dry and very effervescent; this is nicely drinkable too.
-The farmhouse character is salient despite never falling wild territory.
-A touch of citrus fruitiness is found as well.
-Raisins and white pepper add nuances, never leaping out of the flavor profile.
-A sulphur-y hint hides in corners.
-This could just as easily have been brewed on the border of France and Wallonia.

Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle from Ølbutikken. It pours light hazy gold with a minimal white head. The nose is barnyard, grain, orange, pear skin, peach, cat litter and hay. The taste is grassy, grapefruit peel, barnyard, peppery spice, good deal of bitterness, wood and some alcohol with a dry, peppery finish. Medium body and next to no carbonation. Let down by the complete lack of carbonation. Pretty poor by Lost Abbey’s standards.
