ours murky red orange with a sandy tan head. Nose is awesome, tannic and vinous with lots of vanilla and cherry skins. Light bourbony character. Awesome flavor, very acidic and delicate. Layered with notes of vanilla, cherry skins, caramel, bourbon, and lightly acetic.

This did not look that great in the glass...hard to hold that against it when it tasted this good. Nice and punchy sour flavors, but definitely a controlled fermentation carefully done...very clean with no off-flavors or aromas. Amazing aroma on this one. A very mellow, almost delicate malt in the base beer. Very light note of the barrel with an even fainter note of the cab that was in it. A sour the way few people can make them.

375 ml bottle. This one pours a cloudy dark brown color and topped by a small head of off white that settles down to a thin film with some bubbles at the edge. The aroma is very vinous with the influence of the dark red grapes and sour oak from the cabernet wine barrel along with some funky yeast and a dark caramel malt backbone. The flavor follows suit with ample amounts of dark red grapes and fruit showing strong to go with the funky yeast and sour oak from the wine barrel. The sweetness from the malts balances out the tartness nicely. Medium to full bodied with subtle carbonation that leads to a tart, oaky finish. This is a really tasty wine barrel aged brew. Another solid beer from the Lost Abbey.

jbeatty (1020) - New York, USA - FEB 8, 2012
Bottle, 02/08/2012, opens with a pop. Pours ruby brown, clear, minimal head but decent, persistent lace ring around my glass. Aroma carries tart berries, balsamic, vanilla and oak, hint of the original maltiness hiding underneath, finish evocative of fruity red wine. Flavor is tart cherries, caramel malts, building into bigger sourness with balsamic vinegar, turning dry, then great Cabernet finish, fruity and funky. Palate is medium thin, but sourness is well done, not overboard, extremely drinkable. Very enjoyable offering from Lost Abbey, definitely worth a try or two.

LA- lets see how this fairs .. . pours a murky tan .. low to medium head, small slashes of lacing .. . light coco, raspberry skin, light musty wet wood, and pitted light molasses .. . coats the mouth nicely but everything else is a bit off, a bit more sour or fruiter would have been nice .. . . Bud, your hunches are about as useless as dental floss at a Willie Nelson concert.

375ml bottle at The Porter in Atlanta. deep hazy red / brown pour with a very slim off white head. vinous red wine nose with oak, cherry, vanilla and light funk. medium body - very tart throughout with more cherry, oak, vanilla and lactic acid. sweet, semi-dry tart finish. excellent sour ale - very sour / tart throughout with big oak / wine notes. worth every penny.

Grace pours a reddish brown color. Small amount of head pours but quickly disappears into what looks like a very under carbonated beer. But for this kind of beer that’s totally fine. Smell is fantastic and really is a ton different then what the base beer used to be. Sour cherries, vinegar, leather, plums and raisins. Some characteristics of the old beer still show up but to me this is a totally different beer smell wise and a welcome change. Taste. Well was Amazing. Get it? Yeah I never had a good sense of humor. Gone are the days of the dubbel when it comes to this beer. It honestly reminded me of the greatness of their Red Poppy, actually I liked it more then Red Poppy. This beer is full of leather, oak, sour cherries, dark fruits, and the red wine characteristics. Just awesome. Nice tart aftertaste. Mouthfeel is nice and full but carbonation is severely lacking here. Which was totally fine with me.

Pours deep amber. Aroma is oak, dark fruits, and a little funk. The cabernet comes through nicely on the first sip, along with dark fruits and vanilla from the oak. Palate is dry. Easily one of my favorite sour-ish beers.
