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.
