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.

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.

Thanks to daknole. Bottle pours hazy burnt-copper with an off-white head. Aroma smells like raspberry jam, seeds and all, with a touch of earthy funk. Flavor shows raspberry, caramel, and a touch of cocoa. Overall body is moderate, funky, and the finish is dry/tart. Good stuff as long as you can keep it from exploding.

Pours a nice reddish mahagony with a gushy head that dissapates rather quickly. Sour and tart raspberry flavor. A bit of funk. Not crazy sour, but a great amount of tartness. Really good brew.
