3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lost Abbey Barrel Night. Orange pour. White head. Interesting aroma, some light sour/funky notes, some bandaid, and oak. Flavor is lightly tart, funky, oaky and the bandaid comes through. I can certainly find some of the duck duck gooze flavors as I drink this...and thats where most of this beer ends up.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lost Abbey Barrel Party. I would say this one isn’t meant to be rated but it was put up for $75 a pop so here goes. Pours a deep straw yellow/orange. No head as it is "from the barrel." Taste is bland beyond compare. Light grass, small citrus and some mild sour tones. This one hopes it is better in the final blend.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mostly clear golden orange, with thin white head, almost no carbonation. Grassy, dried seaweed, tart, oak, dusty, and lemon. A weird earthy sour, interesting, but definitely not meant as a finished product.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours cloudy golden orange. Sweet and sour aroma with an almost salty and musty nose. Damp oak and honey, too. Sweet cereal flavor with a bit of salt. Really musty and almost a bit like sawdust.
