Poured into a lost abbey tekku. Poured a bright yellow with bits and pieces of pink grape skins. Nose was sour grapes with a hint of stone fruit. Flavor was grape, sour with a nice funk from aged brett

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Hazy medium orange body with sediment, thin clumping off-white head. Tart, sour nose, cobwebby and lemony. Cobwebby body, grassy and dusty; tart and sour, rather Cantillonesque, biting and clean. The grapes provide a tart, tannic quality reminiscent of cranberries. Dry with little sweetness. Outstanding.

Consumed with all ten Veritas beers on April 14, 2012. Shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael. The beer is yellow with pink highlights, and mildly hazy with a thin, fleeting head. The aroma offers grapes, assorted tart fruit, oak, funk. Another winner from The Lost Abbey. This beer is extremely flavorful and brings a powerful and aggressive tartness in the finish. Wow, this flight of Veritas (004-007) is pretty mind blowing. Highly recommended. I would love to have this again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-22-2012

neuromatt (1097) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
375 mL bottle at City Beer in San Francisco, served in a dessert wine glass. Pours cloudy reddish-amber with a few bubbles and virtually no head. The nose has huge, intense notes of sour grape and apple combined with floral and earthy notes with a Brett funkiness. The flavour is intensely sour up front, with apples, grapes, berries and a touch of oak barrels. It acquires dusty, earthy notes and progresses to a long, peppery finish that is still quite sour with grape skins. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry, astringent texture and virtually no carbonation. Overall, this is a very nice sour. Very complex, but also very sour. 2012-02-17

NOTF 2010. Deep amber pour with a lightly spicy nose. Bright cheesy funk. Rich and peppery with a nice zesty wildness. Chewy palate with some sharp tartness cutting through it. Full on funk fest. Awesome.

illidurit (2115) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottle shared at Eagle Rock during RBSG 2012. Reminds me very much of Temptation, but with a more harsh sourness, perhaps more acetic. Lemony with lactic and citric notes, mild grape sweetness, crabapple. Modest funkiness.

Bottled at RBSG. Salmon pink with lace. Acid nose, grapefruit and other citrus, wood, barnyard. Quite sour flavor, grapefruit, dust, quite funky. Very sour and a bit chocking. Nice stuff. The best of the Veritii I tried today.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle acquired via trade. Pours a richly deeper berry or grape tinged golden pour. Firm haze, good glowing reddish glowing elements overall. A frothy whitish head dies to a ring, laces small. Whitish and inviting with some good touches of pink. Aromas are richly sour, lemon and lactic mix with wine grapes, touches of grapeskins, grape fruit, must and funky brett. Straw, bretty funk, cobwebs and cheese with gentle oak coming into the fold. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch of girth from the base offers richer sour lemonsn yogurt, and sour grapes. Crab apples, oak, and touches of vanilla. Funky brett, dryness, and firm dryness musty nose leads to an inviting dry body, crisp fruit and sourness. Effervescent carbonation, dry funky brett, and tartness and sour elements are inviting. Richer firmly inviting Franc grape elements, grapeskins, lemons, grapefruit. Really great sour, fairly well balanced yet assertive flavors. Really fucking good. One of my more favorite Veritas beers.

Sampled this at a sour tasting that Tomme Arthur showed up at out of the blue at. Poured a pink-orange color with a wispy off-white head. Aroma was mild tart notes - grape touch , but mostly mild. Flavor was a touch of raspberries and some wine grape notes.
