2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dirty brown with little head. Nice raspberry aroma. Flavor is terrible, all vingegar. Overly carbed and aggressive. Not my thing.

Bottle shared by Eric. Thanks!! Pours cloudy amber color with off white head. Aroma is vinegar and raspberries. High carbonation for the mouthfeel. Flavor is straight vinegar and raspberries. This is a highly carbonated and very tasty brew. Very tart.

From: KnB Wine Cellars in Del Cerro (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $7.00 (Wednesday deal)
Purchased: Aug. 7, 2013

Poured a plum, reddish brown color with one finger of gray head when I got it. Light spots lacing on the sides. No retention.
Smelled dark cherries, plum, raspberry, Red-Hooded Slut shot, grape and cranberry.
Tasted even better than the nose. Got raspberry, cranberry, dark cherry, Sweet Tarts and Smarties. So smooth.
Medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Long, smooth finish.
I always think this style is good, but this went down easy. So smooth.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a rusty murky reddish brown with some almost pink hues. Bubbles rapidly approach the surface, but the lacing is minimal. The aroma is vinous and the scent of raspberries is pleasantly overwhelming. The scent of Vinegar is enticing and notes of bubblegum are also present. The flavor is comprised of a slight sweetness from the raspberries accompanied by some serious tartness. The palate has a slight metallic structure keeping it from earning a perfect 5.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 375ml, corked & caged bottle, from south bay. opened cold, but not too cold, and this one was no gusher. poured perfectly into a couple of tulips to split with LJ. pours a spectacular hazy, dark, reddish-purple with a thick, bubbly, rose-pink head that lasted through the entire experience. aroma is fantastic with very tart red raspberries, crushed berry seeds, vinegar, lemon rind, and light barrel funk initially that develops more complexity as the beer warms with sweeter aromas of oak, vanilla, floral soap, and wet, grassy, barnyard notes. flavor is absolutely wonderful as well with huge, ripe, freshly picked, SOUR raspberries paired with red wine vinegar and lemon pulp that pucker the mouth initially but are quickly balanced by sweet caramel cake, vanilla, and woody oak. i loved the way this beer truly opened up as it warmed slightly and while it remained sadistically sour it became more complex and balanced. palate is medium bodied, bright, crisp, and wickedly tart without being too dry and is nicely carbonated with a lingering, tart/sweet raspberry/oak finish. overall, another world class sour from lost abbey and i’m damn glad to have another bottle sitting in the cellar.

Bottle. Lost most of it down the drain infortunately. Pours a murky slightly reddish brown. Aromas of sour cherries and perhaps a little wood. Flavours much the same. Good straight forward sour. Would have liked to get a little more.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark ruby and copper with a very small white head that recedes quickly. Nose is strong lemon and raspberry with earthy grains and soil. Flavor is sweet up front with a strong sour punch on the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and with a long fulfilling finish. Amazing balance.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy and murky brown with no head - classic lost abbey style. Aroma is smack in the face with tart raspberries, oak and trat funky yeasts. Not very complex, but just. Plain nice. Taste is just the same, raspberry explosion, very very tart, funky yeasts and a hints of oak. I really dig this beer.
