_angst_ (2726) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012
Sample @ the Sour & Bitter event in Copenhagen. Pours hazy golden with a very small white head that doesn’t leave any trace after quickly dissipating. Smell is sweet, sour and spicy with hay, grapefruit juice, orange zest, overripe grapes, turmeric and hints of apple cider vinegar. Taste is sweet and sour with grapes, lemon juice, cloves, brett, white pepper, barnyard and turmeric. Mouthfeel is round, tiny tart and medium bodied. Finish is sour with hay, spices, bread and lemon zest.

3fourths (7978) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2012
bottle sample at Sour & Bitter. acetic, prickly, raw and husky; semi-sweet honey malt with sugared/crystalline egg shell yeast. rough acid, rough carbonation, as is expected from lost abbey. tingly tutti-frutti fruit/sugar flavor with medium to medium-low sweetness; has a mild spice / seed / herbal character and a touch of bleach late. the crushed sweet-tart powder character that I find in other lost abbey sours is in this one as well.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Flaske: Lysegul uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Ser lækker ud. Duft af hestedække og en del syre. Tør sur duft. Smagen er en dimensionel, hestedække og ikke meget andet. Past its prime og lidt skuffende.

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
750mL at Sour&Bitter. Fully hazy peach to good pour. Medium cabonation after a gushing bottle. Spotty lace. Excellent Cable Car like nose with Brett C tropicals, lemon, mango, bright fruits, small cobweb. Mild oddities like old jam and mint come through but aren’t quite enough to ding this from an 8 to 7. Taste is quenching, salty, peach yogurt, pineapple, grapefruit peel. Zippy palate with a blend of lactic, acetic, and mallic/tartaric acid (sweet tarts). Sort of like Cable Car light. Much better than I expected.

Bottle shared with friends. Thanks to Sean for hooking me up with this bottle. Color had tones of yellowish gold with a thin bubbly head. A lot of lemon citrus and zest in the aroma, swiftly followed by sour funk. Good tartness in the flavor, cheeks puckered with joy. Great beer!
