Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Opened very cold to avoid potential gushing. (and it worked) Pours a deep hazed purpleish brown with a effervescent light pinkish tan head with lots of tiny carbonation bubbles crowding their way to the top. 10 minutes after opening the head is larger than it was upon the initial pour, but rather nice. Aroma is fantastic, raspberries, raspberry seeds, vinegar, sour lemons, oak, funky yeasts. Flavor is sour raspberry puree, vinegar, oak, lemons, funk, highly acidic with a puckering sour and woody mouth bittering finish. A tongue number and palate pleaser for sure. Great Sour.

Massive gusher! Chunky, reddish purple pour with white head. Massive tart raspberry and tannic qualities in the nose! Fresh raspberry, sour funk, oak for flavor. Big thanks to a friend from BA for this one!! Giant sour finish.

Bottle from LA. Smooth yet tart with a mildly sour finish. Like cyber de tomme light. Like it.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2010 375mL Sinners Club bottle that arrived yesterday, shared with ryan and erice. Had heard that some of these were gushers, but we had no such problems, opened it cold. Pours a deep, dark, cloudy red, with a bit of pinkish head. Aroma is nothing but fresh, tart raspberries, immediately brings 3 Fonteinen Hommage to mind. Taste starts the same way, like sucking on a tart but ripe raspberry. Then some faint woody notes come out, with a nice, tart, acidic-but-not-too-acidic finish. Absolutely awesome fresh, I hope it ages well.

Opaque brown pour with a slight salmonish pink tint. Intense clean raspberry aroma. Tart funky flavor dominated by raspberry. Sour and dry. Tartness lingers a bit.

Cork was very tight. Put it in the freezer for 30 minutes, then the fridge for an hour, then the freezer for 20 minutes, and it didn’t gush the slightest.

Holy fuck. The nose on this thing is incredible. Fresh picked raspberry, super juicy fruitiness, touch of caramel, very light vinegar, lots of cheesy funk, barnyard, hay and cobwebs. The taste is lightly sweet, moderately tart, some acetic acid, but mostly lactic; Bright, drippingly ripe, sweet and very tart raspberries all over the place. Some cherry, very light vinegar, but it doesn’t detract. Sweetness is mostly honey and cotton candy, but some caramel there too. Medium body is soft, carbonation is high, sparkling and just a tad harsh; this of course becomes much better as the beer breathes. Finish is acidic with lots of tannins. One of the best Lost Abbey’s I’ve had.

Super tight cork. Gusher. By the looks of the ratings here, others experienced the same. Not good for an expensive beer. Aroma is raspberry. Funk. Sour. Refreshing and light. A wonderful beer. Need to get that explosive matter under control.

Wow - my bottle has been sitting in the fridge and explosion when opening - I was probably left with 1/3 of my bottle - which sucks for how expensive it is. Open it in the sink. That being said - really good beer. Pours opaque reddish/brown. Looks to be pieces of raspberry in there. Aroma is both sweet from the raspberries, but also has the sour funk. Great flavor and balance. Well done, just be careful opening.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2010
Pour is hazed and murky opaque-ish ruddy brown with hints of pink and a this off white/pinkish head...smell is strongly strongly strongly fruity with raspberry and pears...a strong note of sweetness is in there too (dare I say saccharin)...some strong notes of oak and general funk...the saccharin thing is off-putting and I hope I don’t taste it...wow...taste is strongly tart and tastes like raspberry...very interesting because is is certainly a wood flavor followed by a fruit flavor, which I’m not sure if that was the intention...certainly gets my pucker and pursing of the lips going though...very interesting as the sour fades to a dull roar and a cereal and grainy sweetness comes in...I’m not a fanboy nor am I a hater of these beers, but this just seems a tad too cereal sweet...I’m glad that the saccharin thing didn’t seem to pan out though...

Dark red body with a whit head.the aroma blends up raspberries,cherries,and funk.Flavor is much of the same with a nice malty finish.
