Shared at a Lost Abbey sour tasting. Poured a dark cloudy red color with a small off-white head. Aroma was tart cherries with a nice funk note to it. Funky, with barrel notes that rounded this one out pretty well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 7/2/12 from a corked and caged 375mL bottle obtained in a trade. Pours an opaque, dark cola brown with an amber tint and a thin tan head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is a nice combination of brown sugar, caramel, dark bread, and a lactic sour lemon peel note. The flavor is much more sour with the lemon and acidity dominating, and the darker malt flavors more in the background. The body is medium with sticky tannins, just lighter than average carbonation and a long, super sour and malty dark chocolate finish.

Big thanks to Captain Cougar. Lots of acetic, balsamic vinegar, molasses, candied apple, and prune. One-dimensional, and that one isn’t very good.
