4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle, corked and caged. It pours a deep brown color with ruby edges and a huge beige head. The foam settles down but sticks around. Aroma is big on the raspberries and acidic tones. Wood, funk, red wine, raspberries. Taste is oud bruin with raspberries, wood, little vanilla. Finishes very tart and very citric. Big burn from the acidity in the swallow. Somewhat unpleasant but the flavors keep you wanting more. Medium to full bodied with good carbonaiton. Overall, splendid flavors in this one, but the acidic level is a bit overwhelming. Could score higher if more balanced.

375 ml bottle shared by jsprime. Hazy brown with an off white head. Big raspberry, sour, woody, funky nose. The flavour is near perfect. The fruit is not over done. Really a great sour. Thx Jeff.

Pours a deep pink with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is funky and woody, it’s not especially fruity but it’s very inviting and pungent none the less... almost more lemony that raspberry-y
The flavor makes up for the lack of raspberry in the aroma, plenty of earthy seedy raspberry flavor offered, plenty dry & plenty tart. It’s got a nice sour character to it and drinks like a much lower abv than it is, I was surprised to see it @ 7%.
Very cool beer, one of the best I’ve had from Lost Abbey.

Vintage 2012. Picked it up at the brewery. Signed by Dominguez!
Pours a rather murky chocolate cherry with a brown pink fuzz on top. Lots of tart raspberries, some must, barn, lemon and oak. Nice hint of vanilla as well. Flavor is oaky with plenty of fruit flavor and slight bitterness. Also has the aftertaste of a really rich raspberry truffle. Some bits of wood and vine. I like the flavor on this one quite a bit. Medium bodied with sharp, tight fleeting carb and a wet finish. Nice beer, probably one of the better I’ve had from the Abbey.

2012 bottle. Thanks Shane!
A: Ruby with a thin, light brown head. Good lacing. Wish there was better head rentention, but some good bubbles floating in this one without it exploding on me.
N: Raspberry and oak for miles. Touch of acetone. Sweet red wine grape. Some leather and tobacco.
T: Sour hour - very puckering. Some residual sweetness. Tons of fruit and some pepper spice.
M: Light with a hint of alcohol. Goes down about as well as you’d expect for such a sour bomb.
O : Reminds me of Hommage, albeit not as intense with the fruit. One touch nose, but I love raspberry sour, so this gets a good mark from me.

November 26, 2013 - bottle via trade and opened on the wifey’s b-day. Removed the cork to a huge pop, so was relieved. This poured a nice opaque brown with big head that lasted and some lacing. Aroma was sour raspberries, yeast, some malt and touch of vinegar. Taste was very tart, lots of wood, raspberries and yeast. 2013 vintage.
