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.

Bottle. Pours yellow with white head. Aroma is very tropical, pineapple, apples, mango, lots of funk. Taste is light bodied, very lively, crisp, a great full fruitiness coming through. Overall, super good, not sure if it gets much better. Love it.

Bottle from Toby, 2013 vintage. As usual when the Boise crew gets together, sours dominate, but they’re always top notch. Here’s yet another great example, light bodied, tart, fruity and funky. Tasty stuff.
