Lost Abbey is killing the top 50 after the RBSG. Although it looked like the flood water that ravaged the upper midwest this summer the similarities stopped right there. Is was sour alright, but sour what? Soured candy? Soured candy that happens to be a blend of holiday spices and late fall fruit. Mad scientist is what he is.

375ml Bottle from the Sinners Club; Rating #2100! Nose is Nose is light tartness and funkiness, cherries, Belgian style spiciness, a hint of oakiness, and licorice; lots of aromas; I wonder what the actual blend is; murky dark brown with a medium, glass-lacing cinnamon tan head; flavor is light tartness, brown sugar, cherries, some woodiness, spiciness, and a tart finish.

Bottle… RBSG ‘08This beer rocks!… Very dark ale (burnt orange when held up to the sun) with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. Vinous, acidic nose provides notes of red wine, brown sugar and just good ol’ Flanders bretty tartness. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. Well-balanced, although the acidity does work its way to the forefront. Very tangy, fruity and vinous with notations of black cherries and reserved alcohol. Finishes sweet and tart and winds up dry. Fantastic example of the style… Flanders Red, I assume!

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 37.5 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a lacing tan head. Aroma is dry and slight tart cherry. Mild wooden, liqourice spiced and cherry fruity. Nice tart mix with a lingering flavour and the liqourice beneath. Ends dry and cherryish flavoured. Stunning!9-4-9-4-18=4.4

From bottle, blind #28. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Distinct acidic and fruity from a distance. Dense fruity and acetone base aroma. Acidic, roasted malt, fruity and distinct acetone flavoured. Dry and yet smooth acetone flavoured into the far finish. ÆLasting berry fruity impression beyond the finish.8-3-8-3-16=3.8

hapjydeuce (966) - Carlsbad, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
RBSG ’08. Sampled from the bottle during the Lost Abbey tasting. Awesome to see that they broke this out for the crowd. Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, some funk and a light, flowery acetic tone. Deep brown color with light beige head. Nutmeg, cocoa and cherry in the flavor. Noticeable earthy oak barrel character once the flavor fades. Interesting profile; reminded me of a Red Poppy / Cuvee de Tomme hybrid of some sort. Refreshing tartness, easy to drink. Very tasty.

~RBSG ’08~

Big tasting at Lost Abbey. Pours a ruddy reddish coffee color, with a thin layer of tan head and small traces of creamy lacing. Tart nose, toaster strudel-like. Cinnamon, cherry pie, and very spicy overall. Flavors are really spicy. Tart cherries, nutmeg, cinnamon. Really good. Nice tart finish that’s just great. Very easy to drink, too.

Dark ruddy pour with no head. Nose is excellent with fruit and oak, as is the flavor. Clean dry finish.

illidurit (2224) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle sampled at Lost Abbey for RBSG. Pours a ruddy orange brown with a small tan head. What the foam lacks in volume it makes up for in lacing. Aroma is a great vanilla/dark fruit combo that seems to replicate apple pie. Some sourness in the nose. Flavor is similar: sweet fruits and wood tempered by a seamless sour cherry tartness. The carbonation is perfect for coating the tongue with this excellent beer.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle at Lost Abbey RBSG. Pours a murky reddish dark brown with a very thin wisp of a head. Aroma was of sour fruits, very sour. The taste was similarly sour forward with sour cherries, sour grapes, tart green apples, malted grains and wood. The mouthfeel was full and malty. The finish was long and sour. Overall: I want to speculate that (Tomme and Co) they blended Dawn Patrol with Red Poppy to get this one, irrespective it is awesome. I loved it.

Pours a dark maroon with a small off white head. Nice reddish hues line the glass. The smell is of sweet tart fruits, and acidity blended. A little oak is noticeable as well. The flavor was fairly sour. Some nice cherry and apple notes really shine through. A little candy sugar and tart tannins were evident as well. Went down real nice and had some huge nice flavor. Killer.
