UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Excellent beer. Smells amazing and tastes just as good. I donít know if it lives up to the hype -- or the price -- and I donít know if anything could, really. Still glad I dealt with the screwed up online release and drove two hours to grab some. Reminds me of an aged Supplication without the cherries. Looking forward to revisiting in a few months. Bottom line: itís a delicious sour.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 2 bottle; notes from Saturday's tasting.
Aroma has a light but present funkiness with moderate pineapple notes. Fairly acidic with a strong citrus character.
Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head that recedes but is replenished but constant bubbles coming to the top. Faint lacing and no legs.
Flavor is similar to the aroma with medium low barnyard funkiness. Fairly tart with a citric and lactic character. Lots of pineapple juiciness.
Medium bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a very enjoyable American sour. There was quite a bit of acidity and pineapple juice but it could be a bit drier and with more barnyard character. It kind of reminds me of a young Beatification with less funk and a lot more pineapple.

2013 DDG. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Smell is pungent funky citrus, peaches, lemon rind, wet grass and a little pineapple. Taste sour peaches and lemon, a lot of fruit shines in this beer with a little hay and hops in the finish. Medium bodied very lots of carbonation. Another good beer by the Lost Abbey!

Golden yellow. Great fizz with light head. Beautiful aroma, well balanced acidity with just the right amount of sourness.

7/13/13. 750mL with big thanks to womencantsail for this garbage palate cleanser we used among all the awesome malt likkas today. Funky, earthy, leathery nose with tons of funk, sour, and hay. Hugely sour flavor with lots of funk, some wood and vanilla, and lots of rar. Delish!

Bottle from the 2009 Sinners Club. This shit was amazing. Yellowish colored pour with a white head on it. Smell was funky, fruity, a little bit of hops, and some lemon. Taste was smooth, almost refreshing, sour, little bit of bitterness, just a great beer. If I did not know better I would think this was from Belgium. Now if only I knew I needed a basket to drink it with, that probably would have made me give it a 5.1.
