DDG pours a hazy golden color. It honestly looks like apple juice. No head is poured and no lacing. There are bubbles that shoot from the bottom of the glass to the top. Of course as you get deeper and deeper into the bottle that clearness goes away and becomes cloudy.
Smell is all the way tart apples. Itís the number one thing I noticed. Tartness and sourness mixed together wonderfully. I also picked up some lemon, grass, citrus, and oak.
The taste is more sour than I remember. It could be because of some of the age. This time around while my girlfriend liked it she didnít quite love it. I ended up finishing almost the whole bottle by myself. I never have issues really finishing a whole bottle but when there is a sour ale involved it eventually gets pretty damn puckering. The sour and tart apples once again take front stage followed by barnyard funk, lemon, citrus, and a oaky finish. If I could describe this beer to someone I would say itís Acidic, tart, funky, sour apple juice mixed in with wine like qualities.
Mouthfeel is dry, mouth puckering, medium bodied, and acidic. Good carbonation.

#2400. Draft at Capones. Pours a slightly cloudy orange gold with no head. Aroma of wild berries, sour funk, and apple vinegar. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Extremely tart. Excellent.

2013 vintage bottle. Aromas of green apple sourness, sweet peaches, barnyard funk and wet oak. Taste is pretty complex with a peach/apricot/stonefruit sweetness upfront before a nice sour note takes hold. Wet oak, barnyard, musty white grapes. Very tasty and lots of character. Has that signature Lost Abbey "tang". Finishes with a medium-to-full mouthfeel for the style. Moderate carbonation and a semi-dry/semi-sweet sour finish. Really tasty stuff!

Bottle sent to me by Thome50, also sampled some of this at RBSG thanks to Brokensail. Appearance is yellow with lively white head. Aroma is very lactic, with lemon, peach, pineapple, and barnyard funk. Taste is a burst of lactic sourness, followed by some dry funk. Medium mouthfeel, lively carb, and a crisp tart finish. This is excellent, quite sour but also bursting with tart fruit flavour.

Poured from bottle to glass. Orange hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is lactic, peach, straw, lemon. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet followed by a tart sourness throughout. Overall this is a fantastic brew!

At Good, Bad, Ugly tasting 2014. Minimal aroma, hints of tart lemon. Flavor is tart, lemony, overly sweet if we are trying to call this a Geuze. Hints of funk but not overly complex. There is just something I donít get with LA sours. Drank a fresh 3F OG next to this and there is no comparison.

750 ml bottle split 4 ways. Pour is darkish golden with a tiny head that leaves beautiful lacings on top. Nose has some vanilla, loads of funk, citrus and some earthy notes. Taste is just wonderful with an epic balance between the funky and sweet notes. Lots barrel character, vanilla, tannins and leather. Awesome sour which lives up to itís reputation!
