Another barrel aged beer that previously held cabernet wine. This is our Lost and Found aged in wood for a 5 month trial.

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.

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.

From a bottle at Monkís cafe. Thanks for sharing, Eric. This was quite a surprise. tastes like a very nice flemish red, an aged rodenbach perhaps. Vinegar, oak, cherry skins, some chewy malts. Quite tasty and complex.

Cloudy brown beer with a thin biscuit head. A sourish beer that could have been too sour for me if not kept in check by the French oak. The result is a well balanced beer, a little sour and fairly dry. Soft oak tones but no vanilla/cream. Fruity and rich wine flavours in the finish and the aftertaste. Very quaffable!

12.7 fl oz corked and caged bottle shared by mreusch. Pour is a hazed brown golden ruby with not much of an off white head. Aroma is the standard Lost Abbey sour; touch of vinegar, cherry fruit, vanilla oak, leather - all pretty brash and sharp. Taste is acidic vinegar sour up front, followed close behind with wood, tannins, vanilla oak - finishing with more dry wood and some alcohol heat. Palate is brightly acidic, medium bodied, lighter carbonation and the dry hot finish. Thanks for sharing this one Matt.

Pours a dark amber color with an off white head. Has a heavy wine and wood smell to it. Starts off like a Belgium with a little sweetness that quickly turns to wine and a wood flavor. Pretty nice

Thanks to Hamilton23 for this one in trade. Pours a dark amber with a white head. Nose is malt, vinous fruit, a hint of balsamic vinegar, and lots of wood/ cab sav quality. Flavor is a nice blend of malt and sour. It blends the malt of Lost and Found with the tartness and red grapes of a cab sav with a bit of wood added in. Medium in body and silky in mouthfeel. Enjoyable. It would be more so if it was not as expensive and came in bigger bottles, but if wishes were horses...

Bottle gifted by bmanning. Thanks, Ben! Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Pours a moderately-bright reddish-copper color with a very thin off-white head and a bit of lacing, though not much else. The nose brings forward plenty of the red-wine notes along with a bit of dark fruits and some oak. A moderate amount of acidity comes through in the nose. Really complex and everything melds together quite well. The taste is a bit of a letdown after the nose. The red-wine notes are there, but the acidity is too brisk and simply takes over the entire flavor of the beer. While itís nice, itís just too much for what else is there. The red wine is good, but it is overwhelmed. A bit of the base dubbel lingers in the background. Mouthfeel is cut down by the excess acidity. The red-wine component or the base beer needs to come out more. Drinks well enough, but there are some fairly-large issues here. Nonetheless, the nose was excellent.

translucent red-tan. Lightly acetic, red wine nose, bit of brown sugar. Flavor more red wine, lemon, caramel, light brown sugar through finish. Thin, which draws out the acetic quality.

12.7 fl oz bottle, corked & caged (2010 version, sampled April 2011): hazy orange brown with ruby hues, off-white head is fairly creamy and gathers at the edges where it is persistant. Bubble-gum aroma has loads of plums, raisins and fruity alcohol wisps. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel...luscious red grapes, black cherries and red licorice. Wonderful flavours. I wish the bottle was a little bigger! :)
