Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle. Bright red/pink colour with no head. Aroma has tons of fruit, lots of sour raspberries, pear tart, some serious and malicious oak, wine, brandy and a faint alcohol burn. Explosive fruitiness, yet not obnoxiously sweet and candy-like. Very nice balance. Taste has tons of fruit as well. Raspberry, oak, raisins, rum, vanilla, wine, brandy, lovely alcohol-touch. Not extremely complex, just plain damn awesomeness! Fairly heavy sourness, lots of sugary sweetness and almost no alcohol in the taste. exquisite and intense.

Bov (11181) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - cloudy reddish-brown in colour and with a persistent creamy head, nice lace; a solid aroma of wood and vanilla in the front and deep sourish raspberry notes below; very tasty and very carbonated, a robust sourness and a good malt body; the finish is quite dry with overwhelming woody and sourish notes, the raspberries staying again in the background; some warming alcohol notes - far too much wood presence here

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 22, 2011
Pours cloudy and murky brown with no head - classic lost abbey style. Aroma is smack in the face with tart raspberries, oak and trat funky yeasts. Not very complex, but just. Plain nice. Taste is just the same, raspberry explosion, very very tart, funky yeasts and a hints of oak. I really dig this beer.

thewolf (11732) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Den Lille Vinkælder, Fredericia.
Pour is light muddy deep red with a fine, staying, frothy white-pink head. Heavy tart aroma, lots of raspberries, funkiness, red apples, milky, some barnyard. Very fresh and with some sweetness to the raspberries. Highish carbonation, good creamy palate even if the carbonation makes it a bit too frothy. Flavour is lovely tart, again lots of fresh raspberries. Astringent, heavy fruity sour in the centre. Some mild caramel in the base. Very lovely, sad that the carbonation is a bit too high for its own good.

HonusWagner (1914) - Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Noticeable amount of acetobacter in the nose. Taste is raspberries, noticeable tart punch, a bit of blackberry pie, not much detectable funkiness. A pretty good sour ale from Tomme, although I’d like a bit more funk and a bit less sour, puckering acid.

BeerandBlues2 (11474) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle at 13th Richmond Gathering, courtesy of MrChopin. Pours hazy ruby with an average, fizzy beige head, medium-short retention with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel), light hops (earthy), and average esters (berry) with notes of lactic sourness and raspberries. Flavor is heavy malt (bread, cookie, straw), light hops (earthy), and average esters (berry) with fairly heavy lactic sourness and raspberries. Medium body, low warmth and creaminess, and high carbonation with a dry finish. It is nice to see some Lost Abbey beers are carbonated.

tdtm82 (1522) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle; home. Aroma is raspberries; wood, oak, candi sugar and soda juice. Taste is sour raspberries, raspberry soda, oak, lemon tart, very acidicy rather vinegary. Interesting but not what I had hoped for.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 1/19/2011 Source:Other) Cherry with earthy and sour notes with some woodiness in aroma. Aroma is fantastic. Almost clear dark amber with small white head. Very sour cherry with some woody notes. Extremely well attenuated and very dry and sour. Medium to light body with light fizzy mouth feel. Finish is very dry and sour with peppery bitterness lingering. Awesome.
