A Beer You Don’t Give Up For Lent

Released just after Fat Tuesday for Lent is Lost Abbey’s Carnevale.  This light bodied saison arrives in time for masquerades, spring, and breaking that streak of giving up beer for lent.

Lost Abbey’s Thoughts On Carnevale:
Carnevale is a dry hopped saison ale sporting a hazy yellow color and moderately spicy nose with hints of oranges and tangerines from Amarillo and Simcoe hops. The yeast phenols add layers of clove and allspice. The beer is designed to be a lighter body ale with some malted oats and wheat components and dry hopped with Amarillo to emphasize the bright citric qualities.

Style: Saison
Hops: Amarillo, Simcoe
Malts: Malted oats, wheat, & more

Taste Expectations: Spicy & citrus hops, mixed with light malts.  Clove, orange mixes with spice for complexity.  Citrusy & fresh.
