COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
New Belgium Brewing and The Lost Abbey brewery from San Marcos, California have a shared passion for a variety of things, not the least of which is the wild Belgian yeast brettanomyces. So they decided to join forces and collaborate. Lost Abbey Collaboration is brewed simply with pale malts accompanied by Target, Centennial and Sorachi hops for a hint of citrus. Focusing on their mutual respect for the ingredient, the spotlight shines on the brettanomyces, where a full brett fermentation offers bold pineapple overtones and funky, sour edge. The beer is a shining, golden shade and is warming and dry. Lost Abbey Collaboration is available on draft and in 22-ounce bombers.

Bottle from a trade with cbkschubert. Pours cloudy pale yellow color with white head. Aromas of tropical fruits and some dough. Sweet fruit flavors; pineapple, tangerine and apricot with biscuit malts and some dough. Medium body with moderate carbonation. I dont really get any "wild" character". Thanks Craig.

There is very little aroma, maybe light citrus. I would say the ranking is about right. There is almost no floor, none of the barnyard you would look for in a beer of this style...unfortunate.

GothGargoyle (2587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
Reasonably clear yellow with some suspended particles and a small pale head. Aroma is musty wood, hint of funk, citrus. Creamy mouthfeel, very smooth on the palate, nicely balanced, slightly dry finish. Taste is aged cheese, dried apricot. Interesting.

2.4
Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2013
The nose is fruity sweet with perhaps pear or light tropical notes all with a subtle mask of funk in the background. Hazy golden with a large white fizz. Balanced with a touch of sweetness and a mild barnyard presence. Medium bodied with a dry finish.

3.5
norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Golden beer with a white head. Nose of honey, melon, and yeast. Semi-sweet medium-full body. Light caramel with a hint of apricot. Slight citrus hop finish.

BadAprilia1000 (436) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a pale yellow, cloudy with a little foamy head. Aroma is of pineapple and citrus hops. Taste is like a pineapple wine. Decent beer. Not a sour ale......

3.9
SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours cloudy yellow with a small soapy white head. Smells citrusy and funky. Taste is funk and citrus with hints of wheat sweetness. Light-bodied with a wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Lips of Faith - Brett Beer finishes with a strange dryness across the center of the tongue.

jeremyh70 (1103) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Hazy light yellow with good head and lacing. Pineapple and funk smell. Sweet up front with Brett funk and alcohol then tart and a little bitter finish. Dry finish despite initial sweetness. Moderate mouthfeel. Good Saison but not best I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
