The Lost Abbey Lost & Found Abbey Ale

What the brewers say

“Lost and Found is the result of the judicious use of crystal malts with a dry chocolate-malt finish. The perception of warmth from the alcohol blends nicely, keeping the malts from being too sweet.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light spicy notes with fresh and juicy fruit esters—notes of peach and cherry. Slight white grape notes with medium clove-like esters. As it warms, more fruitiness comes out with a slight citrus or low tart note. Peat smoke, light caramel, and some yeastiness.”

Flavor: “Mid-level malts supply caramel and toffee while the fruit esters (cherry and peach) are subdued. This beer seems to be nicely balanced between malt sweetness and hops bitterness without the third dimension of yeast complexity. High grape notes with a touch of alcohol. Fruit notes transition from grape to banana as it warms. Light tartness in the finish. Medium alcohol balances with the moderate body. Medi- um carbonation and a touch of smoke.”

Overall: “An interesting take on a dubbel. Not what most would consider a classic sensory profile for the style, but an excellent beer that one should order without hesitation.”
