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.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2011 This was a lively one. Aroma is sour, tart, fruity with some back sweetness and what I expect to be very acidic. Almost a rush of lemon, citrus and sour strawberry up the nose. Flavor is very sour, great overall, nice pickable fruit flavor, citrus, grapes, strawberry, raspberry with that kick of vinegar at the end. Really enjoyable even though the enamel of my teeth is now less. Addition from 2nd tasting. Has hints of creamy fruity cake, slightly buttery but still really sour, lots of strawberry,

Bottle shared amongst friends. Thanks to Brad for providing 004 for the side-by-side comparison. Served in a Bruery tulip. Gusher! Bam. Wow did this one gush, even with all the precautions we took. Chilled bottle was slowly leaked of excess pressure. After that, slowly pulling the cork up resulted in a good amount of foam and a hefty dose of noise. After that, a beautiful beer ensued. The beer itself is a lovely pinkish-red with hints of mahogany. Good white head initially forms, though it doesn’t stick around for too long. Leaves some good lacing. The nose is really fantastic, bringing bright notes of red grapes, strawberry seed, and raspberry before giving way to plenty of lactic acid and a really nice funk presence. Mild oak in the background. Earthy as well. The nose on this was much, much more intense than the 004. The flavor carried many of the same notes as the nose did. Great funk presence underneath a very strong amount of fruit. Strawberry seeds sat in front and were accompanied by ripe raspberry and a bit of red grapes. Acid was spot on, shining behind the fruit and adding a fantastic complexity to the brew. The funk fit right in with the fruit and made the beverage seem somewhat rustic. Mouthfeel was dry and acidic, with a biting finish. Good carbonation in the beer itself. Overall, a devilishly delicious beer that has been my favorite in the Veritas series to date.

From 03/19/11 notes. Huge thanks to Thorpe429 for sharing this one; thanks Mike! Served in a tulip side by side with Veritas 004. a - Pours a murky pinkish-purple color with an inch of light white head and moderate carbonation evident. s - Smells of raspberries, tart, sour dark fruit, grapes, oak, some light barnyard funk, and vinegar. t - Tastes of very tart raspberries, sour dark fruit, strawberries, funk, oak, citrus, and some acedic notes. m - Medium body and moderate to high carbonation. Dry finish and very mouth puckering, which I loved. d - Another amazing sour from LA; the best I’ve had by them so far. I preferred this one to the Veritas 004 as I enjoy darker fruits better and found this one much more mouth puckering. Out of the four Veritas series beers I’ve had so far, this one takes the cake. Would love to have again.

Bottle shared by Thorpe429 in a side by side with V004, yeah, that’s right! Served in a wine glass (best I could do). I wasn’t there for the initial opening but based on the amount of overflow in the pot on the table, this bottle must have exploded. Beer does not look like I expected, I guess I don’t know what I expected though. It is hazy and pink with nearly no head, moderate carbonation and no lacing. Looks like a fruit lambic. Aroma is AWESOME. It is mildly sweet with the smell of raspberries or some other berry fruit, almost like seeds, the overall aroma is not sweet but that component is. There is some oakiness, mild acetic, some lactic, some brett character too. Smells really good. Beer is light to moderate in body, the lead off is bright and burning with carbonation with some immediate sweetness from some sort of fruit, this gives way quickly to some acetic brightness and some lactic smoothness. There is a mild tannic quality on the end of it too but it is not too bad or overwhelming, at all. The finish is nice, not too dry like you might expect but overall it is very tart. Back in the corners of your mouth you pucker and shutter. I really enjoyed this beer a lot. I think I liked it better than the V004. Thanks again Mike, what an awesome night. Serving type: bottle
