The Lost Abbey Devotion – Belgian Blond Ale at 6% ABV

The Lost Abbey Devotion – Belgian Blond Ale at 6% ABV (2019 Craft Beer Advent Calendar #4, 355 ml, best before 2-Jan-2020, acquired 22-Nov-2019, reviewed 4-Dec-2019)

Appearance: hazy medium gold with a short tight white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and ring, moderate spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: herbal/floral, grass, dry hay, citrus, crackery pale malt, black pepper. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-lively carbonation, dry lingering bitter slightly spicy finish. (4/5)

Not quite a BSPA, but certainly reminiscent of one, e.g. Duvel (though not quite as highly attenuated or carbonated). Definitely fits in with the Belgian theme of the Calendar and can hold its head up in such company. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
