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.

jesperhammer (3049) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2011
29-MAR-2011, bottle @Papsø tasting Pours murky red with no head. Wauw what a nose. Sweetest berries, mostly cherry. Tartness can be sensed already on the nose, but then the sourness hits you on the palate - violently. This is really sour, but also really smooth. Very long taste with low carbonatioin. This is a fantastic brew.

madsberg (10458) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2011
Bottled. Amber coloured. Murky. Small beige head. aroma of berries, intense sourness, wood, light vanilla, acidity. Flavour of extremely tart and sour. Loads of raspberries, spice, vinegar and wood. Full bodied. Tarty and sour berries in the end. Retasted at a higher tempature. Now the fruits are much more distinct, and countering the sourness, which still are very dominant. One can only say wow.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of Sean9689. Pours an opaque reddish amber with an off-white head. Very fresh raspberry aroma, tart though, a whiff of vanilla. Medium body, lively carbonation - comes a slow gushin’. Very fresh raspberry notes, again some vanilla, extremely tart, exotic fruitiness. Very tart indeed, nah let’s just call this SOUR!. 290311

Pinball (10925) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2011
hazy orange-red, very small head. very nice slightly sweet aroma, sour beer, red fruits, stingy citrussy acid note. flavor is extremely sour and acid and citrussy. On top of the extreme sourness and vineagra flavors, we’ve got some really tasty berries. Still, very acid, a little too much imo.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy ruby body with a white head. Aromatically delicious, makes my mouth water, lemon, tropical fruit, funky tart raspberries really really awesome. Unfortuately it took a dive here for me. The flavor is very acidic, viengar tones, lemon acidity, very sharp and rather strong too. Nice fruit notes from the raspberries and funk tones just cant compete with the acidity, otherwise this would have otherwise been stellar to me.

dmac (4206) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle shared at the 5,000 tasting party. Poured a cloudy amber, slight hint of rose, along with a foamy white head. Aroma was great with notes sour, funk, fruityness, cherry-lemon-lime-strawberry. Flavor is super funky and sour with notes of lemon, vinegar and fruit. Palate is acidic with notes of stingy lively bubbly carbonation and an overall lingering aftertaste. Wow!!, just WOW!!
