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 didnít 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 doesnít 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 Abbeyís Iíve 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 donít 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 Iím 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...Iím not a fanboy nor am I a hater of these beers, but this just seems a tad too cereal sweet...Iím glad that the saccharin thing didnít seem to pan out though...

terrible, terrible bottle bomb. bottle was stored for over a week without toching, gently opened, and was left with less than 5oz of brew :( projectile to the ceiling style bomb, foamed nearly all of the beer out. now, once the beer is in the glass, its beautiful. looks like a raspberry, opaque deep red to burgandy, muddy and hazy, with chunk of white yeast like seeds. aroma is slightly sour, slightly raspberry, not offensive, but not really impressive either. just smells good, not great. taste is a lot more, more sour, more rasp, mour funk, more earth, and still blended nicely. palate is nice, seems possibly a tad flat after usinf up all its fizz upon opening, but the aftertaste and finish def leave you wanting more. i am def wanting more; a full 375ml as compared to my 150ml or so might lead me to detect more things and give it a higher score, but my glass and the bottle are empty. :/

Bottle shared by Odeed! Thanks Jake. Not as good as Angelís Share; it has carbonation! Cloudy red with a small pink tinged head. Nose of raspberries, Cheracol syrup, and a minor tart note. Flavor is raspberries, yeastiness, and slight sourness. Super excellent fruit beer but not nearly sour enough for a sour.
