UPDATED: JAN 14, 2009 Courtesy of ygtbsm94. Clear pale body with a small white head. Cheesey, pineapple nose with cotton candy and lemon and yogurt. The flavor is moderately sour, with an amazing fresh citrus juice, lots of cheese, some yogurt and hay. Medium body is sparkly with moderate carbonation. Nice!

9th rating of this 750ml via trade with Ryan. Thanks for the hookup. Its nice that I could trade some cherry adam released the same day as this for this. Worked out well for both of us. Shared with my brother who likes sours, and I was looking for a good time to crack this anyway. Pours golden orange with a bubbly bright white head. Nose is very nice, quite funky, really pretty damn nice. Lots of fruit in there too. Taste wow, really puckeringly sour and funky and overall damn amazing. I definitely get the yellow bus in here and perhaps a touch of Cdt. As I haven’t had Duck Duck Gueze I can’t comment on that part. This is incredibly funky and killer vinegary, this is a crazy wonderful sour, I hope to get a chance to buy some down the line.

WOW!!! Thanks to Sparky27 for hookin’ me up with a bottle of this. A truly amazing brew. Pucker up everyone!!! This is one of most eye-watering beers I’ve had to date...and I LOVE IT!!! Hazy lemon yellow pour with a slight orange peel hue and soapy white head that clings to the inside of the glass. Delicate lacing and ample carbonation. Extemely tart aroma with hints of lime zest, grapefruit rind, and Granny Smith apples. A bit of horseblanket funk evident as well. Flavor just as sticky as the lacing, hanging on the palate. Funky sourness, lemongrass, citrus qualities, and maybe a hint of cherry skin...quite acidic. Medium mouthfeel allows you to remember this mind-blowing experience long after the pour. Great beer!!! THANKS AGAIN ERIC!!!

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2009 750mL bottle, sampled on Christmas with my family. Poured a murky orange golden color, capped with a small white head. Beautiful musty, tart aroma, with notes of lemon, orange and tropical fruit. I enjoyed the aroma and the flavor did not disappoint at all, with lemon, musty earth, spice, orange rind, pear, green apple and vinegar all seamlessly integrated. Tartness and lemon cling to the palate for a lengthy finish. Beautiful beer, and a great start to our annual Christmas tasting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2009 750ml bottle. Cloudy light orange, hazed and milky with a white head. Intense eggy and fatty nose, full of sulfuric acid, lactic acid and sweaty, tart, tangy, fatty eggs... smells incredible! Notes of mandarin orange, mango and peaches show up heavily when it warms more towards room temperature, giving it a unique tropical quality that works well with the lactic/eggy/goaty scents. Very effervescent, very prickly and active, alive, zesty on the tongue. Sharp lactic acid, zesty lemon juice, orange, pineapple and mango fruit, all of this overwhelmed by an intensely sharp white vinegar note. Body is refreshingly light, and the typical filmy and slimy texture that I find in most Lost Abbey beers is absent. Awesome beer, gueuze like but with very forward and fresh tropical fruit.

Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of funk, sourness, peach. Flavor is sour peaches, funky, cherry, barrel, malt. Easy drinking, and quite nice. Glad for the chance to try this one.
Re-rate from bottle.
Shared by avengedpoet at Bockyhorseys place. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is funky, sour, peach, lemon zest. Sourness is a bit more bold than the first rating and carbonation much higher from the bottle. Gonna have to bump the rating on this one because the bottle was quite a bit better.
