UPDATED: MAY 10, 2010 Served on tap at the brewery on release day. The appearance is a deep murky/cloudy raspberry red. Almost looks like tomato juice or a bloody mary. The flavors and aromas are strong with horse-blanket funk, raspberry puree, oak. The mouth is well carbonated and full. Excellent sour!

Tap at the Lost Abbey release. Nose of rasberry and funk. Deep rasberry fruit flavor, tart sourness and bretty funk. Caramel and vanilla and oak also come through. Superb!

Tap at Publican. Pour is deep reddish brown with a small pinkish head. Aroma is tart with notable raspberry and a light funk. Also some woody notes poking through. Not even sure if it’s wood aged, but I smell a little. Smells wonderful. Flavor is loaded with raspberry jam, light funk, a perfect amount of tartness, and a light dryness in the finish. Very tasty.

TheAlum (5964) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2010
Draft on tap at Publican (Chicago, IL). Pours a. Nice rusty reddish brown, a small tannish head that dies to a sturdy film, aromas are rusty, red raspberries, fruity, a touch of cherry, caramel malts far beneath with vanilla, caramel, and sour. Initial is stronger sour, raspberries and lacto, a good sturdy sourness, caramel mixes with lacto, sour, brett, sour raspberries taken over by bacteria. Mellow, but highly sour a touch of hay, straw. Medium bodied, bery sour surprisingly, with light caramel, toffee, vanilla. Bretty funk, good oaky feel, sour is hardcore with a sweet feel upfront. Top notch. Solid sour base, a bit rusty, finish lingers well with sour raspberries, lacto sticking well. Top quality sour by Tomme. Wow.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2010
UPDATED: APR 9, 2010 Tap at publican... Pours a dark cloudy garnet red with a thin off-white head... Sweet yeasty red fruit and raspberry aroma. Hugely fruity and very welcoming... Tart and acidic raspberry with a huge sour bent through the middle and the finish. Very much satisfying with a great sour berry red fruit component and a gratifying sour acidic nature.

On tap at OBriens; leftover from the Belgian fest. Man, I love this style of beer and this beer in particular. Wow. The thick lucious fruitiness reminds me of double cherry red poppy. In your face raspberry awesomeness. Sweet. Thick body. How do they keep the Brett from eating through the body and sweetness? Lots of flavor. Red brown color. Lasting creamy head. Sour acetic character with a hint of ethyl acetate I associate with many Lost Abbey beers: Duck Duck, CdT, etc. Excellent!

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 2, 2010
UPDATED: APR 3, 2010 (CA): Freshly made two weeks before the release! Pours an opaque, dark milky reddish brown color with no head. Nose of fresh raspberry purée, some tart blackberres, red wine vinegar, and barnyard funk. Flavor of smooth raspberries, oak aged tannins, lightly lasting acidic taste throughout, some funk, earthy yeast, rich vinegar finish. Extremely fresh- I’m practically chewing on bits of raspberry with every sip. This is remarkable stuff. Drinkability: Once again, this proves that Lost Abbey is the king of sours. Pairing: Raspberry vanilla cake, creamy lemon cheesecake, raspberry lady fingers and lemon mousse. Rebuy: Definitely. #376 on 02042010, DG.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2010 This is re rated after tasting this beer from the bottle and draft at the release. Wow what a beer. Murky reddish color. Sweet tart aromas. Medium in body. Fantastic sweet raspberry flavor very nicely balanced with sour characteristics. Good length of finish. Could drink this all night. Love it .

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Tap at EBF. One of the best beers of the fest. Pours a thick, murky red-purple-brown with mild carbonation and head. Bright, wet raspberry aroma, slightly chocolatey, super-thick. Perfect fruit acidity. A bit chemically in its intensity. Not too often that I say this, but this would really benefit from some fairly aggressive filtering — the sludge is simply holding back brightness and lightness of body.
