4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, many thanks to DJ Reakt, through the brewers’ network! First batch.
Flat fairly lifeless carbonation. Is it Louis Roederer? Aroma is barnyard funk, wood, oak, red wine barrels. Taste is bone dry ala Frank Boon, soft malts. Absolutely bloody mesmerising.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy deep gold with a fast fading head. Lovely wheat and funky earthy Belgian salt and a kiss of lemon on the nose. Very lovely guava and citrus undertones with a touch of salt and Belgian funk. Just a touch sour. Very delicious and very full and coating. Amazing. A kiss salty.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2016 Pours a clear golden yellow with bubbly white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of big funk, nice lactic undertones, hints of malty sweetness. Taste is more toward the funk and sour, but well balanced and nicely done. Really a treat to try.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
December 29, 2015. Bottle, vintage 2013. Received in a trade with kraddel, thanks!
Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is sour fruity and light funky with lemon, grapefruit, green apple, hay, funk, honey, leather and barnyard, some oak and a touch of butterscotch.
Taste is sour with a vinegar touch. Finish is dry sour with lemon, apple, some funky barnyard notes, vinegar and hints of honey.
Good, but a bit too much acetic acidity shines through in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle shared at our big bottle share tasting. 2013 batch bottle. poured a deep orange colour with a small white ring on top. aroma has a ton of fruit upfront. followed by a clear banana notice, stone fruits, apricots, grains, and some weird musty kind of wet oak notice, grapes, and a slight wine noitce aswell. a small unplesant notice is in there. wich i get from all of the lost abbey sours. taste has a lot of grapes, and green apples. light tartness. enjoyable and easy drinkable. but way overrated. just like cable car. trade value is way to high for the quality you get

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, batch 1. Hazy golden with a small white head. Nose has funk and yoghurt sourness, wood, white glue. Plenty of lactic sourness, lemon, rubber, wood, minerals, salt. Medium body, oily light fatty texture, fine carbonation, medium sweet and highly sour. Ok, but the sourness is a bit too much for my taste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Appearance is like molten gold. So hazy my fingers on the other side of the glass are mere fuzzy shadows. The pour results in no head; just the lightest mention of off-white fizz along the sides. Smells wooden, and sweeter than most sours that cross my path. Pronounced aromas of oak, honey, white grape and honeydew play about my nose, along with soft grapefruit and wet cement. Flavor lead with lemon, apricot and white vinegar followed up with honey-like sweetness and truffles. The tartness is intense and lingers long after the swallow. Gentle fizz, with a fairly creamy medium body. A slight alcohol warmth travels down the throat. Thanks to an epic beer tasting lineup, I was able to enjoy this brew directly after Isabelle Proximus. Comparing the two, I’d call this the more "incomplete" beer. It had a more unique flavor bill, but seemed slightly less well-mingled. Still a world-class sour, though.
