4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Damn, it’s been a while since I’ve tried one of the recent Lost Abbey offerings. 375ml bottle shared with myself. Cork was damn near impossible to remove, but a very loud POP made me smile. I didn’t feel like another Flat Abbey disappoint. Pours a nice reddish brown with a nice pinkish tan head. Aroma is quite good, with a nice earthy, leathery foundation to be found underneath the tart raspberries. Flavor isn’t quite as impressive with some astringent flavors coming through. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with enough carbonation to clear the palate. Not bad at all.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12.7 ounces bottle shared @King Arthur Pub (Ciampino). Ruby-copper appearance with a big off-white head. Aroma is fantastic! Raspberry, red fruits, wild mint, balsamic notes, wild yeasts, wow! Flavour is impressive too, rich and complex, light sweet at first with a fresh fruity sourness, some tartness with a light touch of vinegar. Medium body, medium carbonation. A real masterpiece!

Bottle, thanks to Homer. Cheers! Deep brown with red highlights. Small off-white head that quickly settles. Nice jammy nose. Plenty of tart fruit filling. Black raspberry, cherry skin. Mellow acidic funk. The flavor strikes a nice sweet/tart balance. Never too harsh or difficult to drink. Plenty of meaty raspberry. Fruit leather. Some pennies. Medium body, active carb. Quite pleasant.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Brownish dark red. Small offwhite head. Aroma of berrys, some funkiness, mint, barnyard. Tart, berrys, fruity, notes of hay, herbs, citrus on the palate. High carbonation, medium mouthfeel. This beer is a challenge. Halfway in the bottle me and the beer agreed, and i fell in love.

Bottle, pours a brownish-mahogany red. Very tart up front and throughout, with a little bit of raspberry in it. Not really sure what else there is to say but it’s awesome.

Bottle from brewberry Paris
dark ruby brown with beige lacing. Earthy tart cider vinegar, lacto, red fruitand Christmas cake nose, redolent of rodenbach charactere rouge. Similarly continues in taste, though a bit less refined, strawberry more than raspberry, pretty acetic with acidic finish. Decent but not quite up to the Flanders reds. Pickled egg notes.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaska från Galatea/Craftbeer. Tack för att jag fick vara med och måla Daniel! Det stod 8,5% abv på min flaska. Rödbrunmurrig färg med lågt beige skum. Fantastisk stor söt hallondoft, sommarvarma hallon med lite trä, jäst och syrlighet i bakgrunden. Stor söta bärig smak men den knivskarpa syra biter snabbt ifrån och skapar balans mot sötman även om syran lätt drar längsta strået. Det är fantastiskt gott men syran är på gränsen till för vass.
