COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Veritas-From the Latin meaning TRUTH. An original set of blended ales created in small batches by our brewers. We chose the word Veritas as in, the "Truth" be told, we have no idea what these beers will become. Each release of Veritas promise to afford us an opportunity to create new blends of beers. There are no time tables, specific release dates or market conditions driving the Veritas series. When the next batch is ready, we will tell you. Look for these incredibly small case releases to be a part of our Lost Abbey promotions, beer dinners, and educational experiences. In this way, we can all share in the Truth of what beer is, might be and even become.

Bottle split with my bro before Fightin Phils. Ruby pour with thick white head and lacing, Aroma of this veritas took me back. Initial scents of raspberry jelly, balsamic, orange peel, really tart notes of different fruits, sandalwood. Mouthfeel was sour pucker candy, especially on the sides of tongue. Notes of peach, framboise, brett, vanilla cream, and green apple. This one was more carbonated then other versions. Cheech Ahh.

750 ml bottle; thanks Brandon; pours super muddy dark pink with an eggy head in the bottle but fairly thin in the glass; aromas of fizzy raspberries, lemon juice, white sugar and dry orange peel in the finish; some acidity character, but comes off more like fresh fruit juice; ok, but mouthfeel is a little sharp; really nice raspberry flavor though

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Thanks bvc! White peaches and apricot, clean tart nose. Dark tarnished grapefruit in the glass. Big tart grapefruit bite, some granny smith. Sustained like Buddy Guy’s feedback. Little rainier cherry. Hoo boy.

nimbleprop (5187) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 24, 2011
750ml bottle gushed on opening. Pours a hazy, light copper amber with a thin ring of white head. Nose is really juicy and jammy, raspberry, strawberry, some sweetness. Flavor is super acidic, like a raspberry viniagrette, cherry, strawberry, light lurking sweetness. Really hot, acidic finish. Not my favorite.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Thanks GT2! Muddy orange pour with pink hints and a white head sitting atop it all. Massive raspberry seed in the aroma with a pretty huge acetic acid character which likens it to raspberry vinaigrette. Acetic palate with the overall feel trending to the acetic side. Raspberry flesh and enamel peeling acetic acid in the finish. Despite all the vinegar notes, not all that bad.

Thanks to GT2! Orange amber pour. Juicy tart grapefruit, raspberry jam, strawberry, plum, apricot, candied apple, and a touch of interesting fennel and anise notes. The flavor brings a ton more acetic acid, more sweet raspberry seed, and some vinegar, mixing with the tart grapefruit. Really quite nice.

BeerandBlues2 (10062) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours cloudy ruby with particles, a huge white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is lactic and acetic, strawberry and raspberry with skin and seed notes, light straw and meal malt. Flavor is tart, acetic/vinegar, raspberry and strawberry, light malt and hops with a dry finish. Medium body, low warmth, high carbonation.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 12, 2011
hazy tan-pink pour, thin white ring. nose is lightly acetic, draws more raspberry seeds through, light arsenic. Flavor burns, moderate raspberry, light egg, light seed, vinegar too strong. Thin, sticky, lightly drying seedy body, acid burning with paper in finish. The acetic brightness really helps the nose, takes it above d’amarosa’s occasionally messy, aggressive dark malt, but the flavor shows lost abbey for acetic tragedy they are.

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Hazy red brown pour with a thin white head. Very fruity raspberry aroma. Flavor is sour, a bit ascetic, with tannic buitter notes. Some spice, almost a touch of curry. Acid is a bit overpowering, but a decent beer.

callmemickey (3005) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Pale, clear orange-pink-red body. Thin white collar with no lacing. S: Funky overdose of raspberry. Mead-like boozy sweetness comes through. T: Raspberries, strawberries, lemons and cherries with a sweet and sour acidity. Hints of oak and bretty funk. M: Solidly carbonated with a tart, puckering finish. Slight burn in the back of the throat from the solventy, mead-like notes. O: Not sure what to make of this beer. It was nice, but it was a bit off.
