COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An amber ale brewed in the spirit of the abbey ales of Belgium. Lectio Divina gets its color from candi sugar, as it is made without dark or crystal malts. It is brewed with the same care and attention to the Art of Brewing that is practiced in the monastic breweries of Belgium.

750ml 2009 on cork. Pours a cloudy brown much like a Dubbel with a quickly disolving head. Aroma is a bit fruity and yeasty. Some dried fruit, figs and that wonderful wild yeast. A touch of sour and lightly vinous I’ve been very impressed with this Florida brewer. Palate is medium with a nice creaminess and medium carbonation. Flavor to me is more Dubble than Saison. Sweet and malty yet less sugary than most Dubbels. Overall a winner in my opinion!

Copper, hazy, beige head. Grainy, biscuity, crackerlike malt, sweaty-sock funk, light tart cherry and some peppery notes.

Saint Somewhere Lectio Divina is a well-executed Belgian Strong Ale. Aroma of prunes and plums coming from this dark orange-brown pour with a thick tan head that holds throughout the drink. Taste is heavy prunes and plums with a touch of funkiness. I wouldn’t say Lectio Divina is a standout Belgian ale, but is certainly enjoyable.

750ml bottle...might have had this one sit a bit too long and/or had a bad bottle, so I’ll try to tone down my true thoughts on this one and give it another try in the future. Poured a light brown color with no head to speak of (bottle appeared to be under carbonated). Aroma is spicy and had notes of cinnamon, raisin, and an odd funk that did not agree with the other aromas. Flavor was very oxidized and full of cardboard...caught some notes of spice and raisin, but the cardboard notes were just overwhelming. From what I could pick up on, this acted a lot more like a saison than a belgian strong, but who knows...again, I’ll temper my true thoughts and pick up another bottle in the future.

Cask at Redlight. Redish Amber, fantastic looking beer really. Foamy lasting white head. Aroma of tart fruit, malt and wood. This is wierd tasting and I suspect its cause of it being on cask. With no carbonation its just entirely to sweet and cloying on the palate. Its got alot of complexity for sure and its a nice combination of sour and traditional abbey ale flavors but I suspect I’ll like this alot more out of the bottle. I’d probably thing twice before trying another belgian on cask, it just doesn’t seem to be suited to the style. Belgians rely heavily on good carbonation to counteract the complex sweetness. Here its just too much. I’ll be rerating this soon from the bottle.

It pours a deep amber with an enormous frothy head. The lace spiderwebs down the glass. Smells strongly of fruity malt with a faint alcohol. Red apple, pear and ripe cherry flavors evident in the aroma too. Immensely sweet and fruity. Spiced apple, hints of pear and date. Sweet and sticky but surprisingly drinkable for such a big beer. Sweet spice in the finish. Very nice.

Cloudy orange unsettled look. Small head and no lacing. Smells like fingernail polish. Doesn’t taste as bad, but wouldn’t try it again.

Purchased in Whitefish Montana. 2008 vintage. Pours dark orange, almost copper. Off white head. The aroma is one funky bitch. Grape skin, green apple, plum, cherries, spice, and a hint of malt vinegar on the nose. The flavor is not as funky as the nose lets on. Dark fruits, berry skin, ripe cherries, and a funky acidic finish. Quite nice.
