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.

mcberko (16927) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is quite funky and somewhat off-putting, with urine notes on top, some brett and some moderate grainy notes. Flavour is a tad sour, moderately funky with some tangy citrusy and tropical fruits. Nice balance between tangy fruits and sour funk - not hugely bretty. Decent beer, but doesnt nothing special.

brokensail (16401) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 27, 2012
The pour is a golden color with a white head. Nose is sweet malt, some fruity hops and esters such as lemon, pineapple, apple, and maybe some banana. Just the slightest musty funk in the background. Like the aroma, there is a sweetness to the flavor along with some slight tartness of citrus fruits. A hint of pineapple, some banana, and a touch of apple. Mild spice notes, too. Not really what I think most would expect, but still an enjoyable beer.

bhensonb (14966) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 11, 2012
Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours hazy orange gold with a transient white head. Aroma is mild citrus over possible barnyard - gotta struggle for any hint. Med body. First impression is lots of sweet fruit. Its kind of thickly fruity. Sour just is not in it. A little earthy, a hint of barnyard. Given the mouthfeel Id be happy to label this an imperial saison. Its an ok beer. I think I can even detect the indicated pineapple. But the "funky, sour edge"? Equate this as the Bud Light version of that. It is dryish. But not extremely so. It is so sad, but I put it down the drain to get into a Berryessa Brewery growler. Sigh!

Ferris (14787) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle - Passion fruit, dried pineapple and citrus. Cloudy yellow with a thin head. Dried fruits, citrus, Sorachi hops and little else except a bit of yeast. A very mellow understated beer, maybe to much. I expect bold flavors and great sourness from a Brett Beer.

Ratman197 (14508) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bomber poured a clear gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, barnyard funk, dirty feet and light citrus. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dy finish. Flavors of bread, barnyard funk and a hint of citrus with a smooth dry lingering funky finish.

Tmoney99 (14277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear yellow color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour & sweet flavor with a medium sweet & sour finish of moderate duration. This is a soft beer for style.
