Lost Abbey "Carnevale" Saison Ale (750ml)

SKU #1046962 95 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a 'saison-style blonde ale,' brewed using Brettanomyces as well as Amarillo and Simcoe hops. It’s a light-bodied and incredibly refreshing saison, with bright fruit aromas of barely ripe yellow stone fruit, apple and lemon rind that are accented by spicy notes of pepper, Belgian yeast and barnyard. Dry and tart on the palate, this is complex and layered, with the pale-malt core complemented by flavors of juicy pear, peppercorn, hay, citrus zest, floral hops and just a touch of honey. The brisk carbonation keeps the palate lively, finishing crisp and dry. A well-balanced and intricate selection, this is delicious now but should evolve nicely over the next couple of years.

K&L Notes

Moderately spicy nose with hints of tropical fruits and toasted biscuits. Some tangerine and apricot help round out the citrus notes. Mildly sweet with subtle pop, the carbonation helps introduce the deep flavor of Brett to the palate.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
