ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2010
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.

Draft @ EBF. One of the few pour, that I went back to multiple times. Mouthwatering ruby pour with white head. Raspberry, tart, funky brett tones. An american lambic done right, correct sourness, a hint of sweet very well done Tomme.

Raspberry and sourness in a fantastically good aroma. The taste is tart and full of raspberries. Fantastic taste that is difficult to describe properly. After-taste is a wonderful conclusion to a great beer. All the right flavors. Incredible successful beer.

Bottle from BOLTZ7555. Thanks Jason!!! Prepared for a possible gusher but no such problems. Pours a stunning reddish-brown color with shades of pink and topped with a fluffy head. Quality head retention with blotchy lacing. Huge fruity notes in the aroma; raspberries, cherries, vines, leaves, horseblanket funk. This thing really opens up, just a wonderful scent. Flavors follow and do not disappoint following a nice into. Puckery and sour up front then the intensity mellows a bit with lots of raspberry, barrel notes, and funk. There’s a creamy foundation to this and I pick up some serious fresh soft raspberry flavors underneath all the sour funk. Has a funky wild berry taste to it almost like there’s a little cherry and strawberry mixing in. Dry finish with oak and some lingering tart raspberry. Really good stuff. Say what you want about LA but Tomme can make some real gems. My bottle didn’t last very long. Thanks again Jason for the chance to try this.

Bottle from bleeng.
Pours a rich, rosy red with an aroma of rotten and soured raspberries and cherry oak. Flavor is mouthpuckering raspberry and cherry, with tons of soured oak and sweet (sour) medely of fruits. Take your pick. This stuff could peel paint off a Norwegian barge. Syrupy mouthfeel. Awesome.

BlackSwan (24) - Frisco (Dallas), USA - MAY 1, 2011
Pours a reddish brown body with a huge frothy cream head. Aroma is rich with cherry and raspberry. The mouthfeel is full in body and medium in warmth. You can taste dark fruits, primarily the cherry and raspberry with some wood. The flavor is accompanied by strong lime. This beer leaves a dry finish. It is tart… very delicious.

Bottle courtesy of collin, ok now this is the best sour I’ve ever had. Huge tartness, oak aging, and the raspberries. More tart raspberries than new Glarus raspberry tart.

This one poured a murky brown/orange color with minimal head. Aroma is raspberries and very light funk which is actually nice. Taste is NG Raspberry tart but soured, which is amazing. New favorite sour possibly.
