I got this from Snojerk321 in a trade a while back. Thanks, Torry. If I wait until the right time to crack this I may never be opening it. Pours a reddish-gold color, kind of orange, with a thin off-white head on top. The aroma is funky and fruity; cherries, lemon, oranges, along with wood and dust. This is crisp and quite tart. Plent of citric acidity and acetic funk here. Sour lemon, red grape, dusty notes, barnyard funk, and a lengthy bandaid note all are noted as well. There’s some silky sweetness to the body that’s quickly covered by the puckery fruity notes. Yet another very tasty sour from Lost Abbey. I wish these Veritas offerings were a little easier to come by. Would love to try others.

Old rating. Draft at Monk’s for the Lost Abbey dinner with Tomme Arthur. Pours hazy shiny amber with a thin, off-white head. Aroma of lemonhead, honey, hops, barley, malts, raspberyy, cherry, oak, lemon skin, and slight hints of jasmine. Body is medium with an immensely sticky, rigid palate. Aftertast packs a sour wallop. Outstanding brew. One of the very best sour ales I’ve tasted thus far

From notes. Light grapefruit color, slightly hazy, with a small off white head. The aroma is full, tart, and complex. There is red grapes, white grapes, funky notes, lemon zest, citrus tartness and acetic tartness in the nose. The flavor just blows me away. The sour flavor starts strong and stays strong. Lemon zest, red wine, oak, sour cherries, white grape skin, with a Brett character throughout. An acetic tartness starts in the background and becomes more pronounced as the sip progresses. There are definite wine and oak characteristics from the barrel as well. The beer is obviously sour, with Bretty funk and a pungent acetic feel. The carbonation is right at the proper level, working with the beer to accentuate the flavors. It has a light body. This was simply incredible overall.

Thanks for bringing this longtime want Chad. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Half fingers worth of head. A murky grapefruit in color. Nose resembles Isabelle quite a bit, peach, rock fruit, white wine, mineral, and some vinegar. Wow, really nice flavor profile on this. Again, reminds me a lot of Isabelle but you can definitely see the influence of the cab franc grapes. Light mouthfeel, good acidity, lively carb, and a nice lingering finish. Of the Veritas ive had, this is right up there with 006. Tastes outstanding, really bright nose, exceptional stout.

At HallingHansen Grand Tasting, thanks for sharing. Pours an unclear and orange beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, fruit and acidity. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is acidic. Overall a good beer.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
On tap at City Beer Store. Pours a pinkish amber with no head, just a couple of bubbles at the edge of the glass. The aroma has a lot of funky brett, with some lemon, raspberry, grape skin, some lactic, cherry, and a bit of oak. The taste is quite tart with lemon, raspberry, a lot of funky brett, and some grape skin. The finish is dry, oaky, and funky with a decent amount of astringency. Light body with low carbonation. It could have used more carbonation, but it was still quite a great beer.
