LOST ABBEY CARNEVALE

NOTES: Draft @ Monk’s Cafe in Philly

STYLE: Saison

ABV: 6.5%

APPEARANCE: Glowing gold with a bit of haziness

HEAD: Frothy, bright white, big bubbles which rapidly disappear

LACING: Excellent. Coats the whole glass.

NOSE: Pure Saison. Sweet candi sugar. Banana esters. Yeast rolls. And mild funky, farmhouse aromas.

TASTE: Sweet, bready malt up front which gives way to a round, fruity middle. The finish is slightly bitter and musty.

MOUTHFEEL: Pervasive carbonation keeps this light on the tongue and in the mouth. Surprisingly light actually.

DRINKABILITY: Very refreshing and bubbly. Wish it had a touch more hops to balance out the sweetness, but it’s an interesting Saison from a great brewery. I had one each night in Philly.

RATING: 3 Hops
