Beer: Lectio Divina
Brewery: Saint Somewhere Brewing, Tarpon Springs
Notes: Brewed by Bob Sylvester in his essentially one-man operation north of Tampa. The name is Latin for divine reading. The brewery calls it a Belgian strong pale ale, clocking in at 8 percent alcohol.
Pours a deep amber in color with a massive head. Earthy aroma with notes of grape and other fruit. The taste is pure Belgian: fruity, earthy and yeasty. Grape flavors mix with hay and grass-like notes. Very complex.
Divine, indeed. Saint Somewhere brews some of the best Belgian-style beers in America, and this one can easily compete with the best from the mother country. Seek this one out, it's my favorite from the brewery.
