Default The Lost Abbey - Devotion Ale

Inspired by and brewed in celebration of the brewing Monks in Poperinge, Belgium.

This beer is a celebration of all things hoppy. This Belgian Style Blonde Ale has a clean, earthy, biscuity and somewhat grassy aroma. At first sip, the sweetness of the malt is accompanied by very light caramel notes. These give way quickly to an assertive spicy hop bitterness. The finish is clean and crisp with a long lingering hop presence.

Tomme Arthur has made an extremely enjoyable Belgian style session beer with Devotion. At 6.25% abv, I can easly polish off a 750ml bottle by myself and find myself longing for more.

This beer will surely satisfy Belgian beer lovers and hopheads alike.
