4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
If you are not a red wine drinker, you will probably not be a huge fan of this beer. However, ig you are a fan of red wine (Like I am) you will probably fall in love with it.
Pours out a hazy, brown "muddy water" color. Aroma is full of red wine and just a hint of malty sweetness.
I started drinking a little colder that recommended (Because I’m not patient enough to wait) and the red wine character was "BOOM" very much in your face. As the beer warms up, the red wine character is not as flavor forward, but you can still there it’s there. The malt and a hint of vanilla becomes more noticable on the front of the tongue.
Finishes off a bit on the dry side, but doesn’t have a heavy mouthfeel and doesn’t leave you with that cottonmouth feeling that some red wines can leave. Very enjoyable sipper at 8%ABV

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a lightly hazed dark amber color with a couple fingers of off-white head.
S: Light vinegar notes with some red wine and sour cherries. There’s just a bit of oak along with a slight malt sweetness, sort of like an oud bruin/Flanders red. A touch of grass and straw, as well.
T: The little bit of malt sweetness is the first thing on the tongue. Lightly acetic with some notes of cherries and raisins along with red wine and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Just a hint of oak.
M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Could have used a bit more tartness, but still a nice sour beer.

Bottle thanks to a generous trader but I cannot remember who. Pours a murky earthy red with a gray is head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of sour dark red fruits with a good amount of dry red wines and a hint of funk. Flavor was extremely sour with dark red fruits with and a good amount of acid and quite a dry red wine finish.

Bottle. What a nightmare trying to get the cork out.... Brownish red in color with a small white head. Sour cabernet aromas. Another stunner from the crew at Lost Abbey. Aged grape, red wine, oak, caramel, tart cherry, vinegar, and acidic fruit flavors......

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of James. Grape and red wine sour cherry notes. Pour is a transparent brown. Not too vinegary which is the biggest turn off for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL cork and cage bottle shared by Matt, thanks man. Oh, its not flat, actually a very strong carbonation. Aroma is signature Lost Abbey (not a good thing). It was something that I could have liked 3-4 years ago but now understand how bad it is. Its all acetic, poor, unmanaged sourness. The flavor is similarly thin in flavor, has a thin body, and is overly acetic with no counterbalanced elements.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wood soaked dark fruits, malt, and alcohol. What else could one ask for?
This is not one of my favorite styles, but this one sure helps me see the grander picture.
