UPDATED: FEB 6, 2011 Tasted on tap at the 1st Annual Bistro Barrel Aged Beer Festival. This abbey double poured a medium brown color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty, fruity with a smoke. Medium bodied abbey double. Malts are fruity and sweet but a touch estery. Itís a little more banana and clove than the lost and found. Some oak and yeast. Think it could use some more aging. It really didnít have a lot of oak flavor yet. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with some spices.
Lost Abbey Amazing Grace (2010 Bottle)
Sampled on 2/5/2011. This sour ale pours a very cloudy amber brown color from a 375ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing. Aroma is fruity, tart, oak and yeasty. A medium bodied sour/wild ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, tart and funky. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. This is a totally different beer than I had in 2005 on tap. Nice mix of fruit, tartness, oak and tannins. Very nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart.
