The brew recipe you reference seemingly specifies using openjdk14 to compile which is why the class version of org/armedbear/lisp/Main is reported as 58.0. But it seems that the `abcl` script is attempting to start ABCL with an Java 8 runtime (which has class file version 52.0).
I don’t really use Homebrew, so don’t really know how it manages the Java runtime infrastructure used by its installation of recipes, but here’s how I would diagnose your setup.
1) Check the contents of the `abcl` script to see what version of Java it is trying to use.
2) Possibly start abcl with the `—-noinit` flag to see if that makes a difference.
