4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Bottle: deep brown & red color, almost opaque with ruby edges & a beige, gray-tinted head that sits as a soapy skin for a while. Aroma is gushing cherries, wet oak, mild lacto, a sour acidity, & a mild bit of vanilla. Very tart & sour smelling, tons of bursting fruitiness. Taste includes a nice helping of sour cherry & vanilla up front with a solid, dripping oak background. Wood, mild lacto, some acidity that induces tartness without causing ulcers, & a finish of mild vinegar, oak, & cherry tartness. Dry through & through with acidity that picks up over time. Awesome sour from Lost Abbey.

Another swing and a hit! Had at GABF 2013. Extreme cherry aroma. Excellent balance of oak and rich ale characteristics. Some barnyard pencil lead and wet hay. Cherries dance through your palate and the other notes continue to supports the prominent flavors. Fantastic.

2013 Bottle shared at Fat Angel SF. Hazy brown. Big tart cherry, nice musty notes, good vinegary funk, thick red fruitiness in the aroma. Juicy cherry at first in the taste, followed by great musty funk, nice tart vinegar, sour red berries, sweet brown sugar. Good tartness. Nothing crazy, but a really solid bruin. Big price tag.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. I really enjoyed this one. Pours clear ruby with some floaties and a large fizzy tan head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is sour cherry, funk, oak, grapes. Flavor is the same, quite oaky actually, but without much woody tannic astringence. Vinous with medium tartness and just a tough of funk. Finish is quite dry. Medium body, high carbonation, but not distracting from the overall experience.
