COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once upon a time it was the most award winning Pizza Port beer of all time. Now it has found a new home at The Lost Abbey. A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with. One of the most complex and unique beers we make each year.

Pours muddy dark brown with absolutely no head. Very complex aroma with dark fruits like sour/bitter cherries, figs, dates, plums and some nice bourbon. Taste starts tart with the fruits mentioned and finishes slightly bitter and tart. Bourbon is present all the way. Long, pleasant aftertaste. Quite balanced considering all the ingredients. Body is pretty heavy with almost no carbonation. Overall this is an excellent beer. One of the best and most complex sour beers I ever had.

brnandersen (2011) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2014
Sample from 375 ml. bottle. Dark amber colour with a thin, lightly tanned head. Fruity, sour aroma with tart fruits, cherries, yeasts - bretts, wood, rich caramel malts. Taste is sour. Full body with an oily texture and a flat carbonation. Finishes rather dry with tart fruits, spices and a vinous note. Well executed Sour.

bartlebier (1884) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 12.7oz bottle, no batch or bb date. Bold Object Randomly & Idiosyncratically Smuggled into a generous locals4locals trade box, danke! Dalí meets viticulture manual label, corked and caged. Pours flat and deep bordeaux. Condensed flemish Burgundy, RedBrown aroma: balsamico, cherry stone, milk chocolate, plum wine. Vinous in palate and barrel tannins: oak complements the almond of cherry stone, vanilla, raisin and Mon Chérie sweetness underneath. Drinks like a pinot noir or more bodacious-barreled Spätburgunder, with even less carbonation. Well-made quality US sour that obviously has been granted the luxury of time and patience to grow into a well-rounded sipper. worth a side-to-side tasting with several Rodenbach vintages.

Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Dark brown pour with red highlights and a small foamy head that fades to a thin film. Aromas are red wine, vinegar, sour cherries, tobacco, and light alcohol. Tastes like sour cherry skins and vinegar. Light sourness. Light tartness in the finish. Some red wine in the finish too. Don’t get any bourbon. Almost no booze either. Surprising that this is 11%. Good sour.

Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Mørk rød, uklar farge, lite karbonert med en tynn skumtopp som forsvinner relativt raskt. Smaker eik, kirsebær, rødvin,sitrus kirsebærstein, bourbon og gjær. Behagelig syrlig. Rett og slett utsøkt
