4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at bu11zeye’s 10,000th rating tasting.
The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is quite funky with a lot of lemons, yeast and wheat. There is also a little bit of leather and some brett thrown in. The flavor is also very tart, with a ton of lemons and hint of peaches and other very light fruit. I also get some yeast, brett, barnyard funk and wheat thrown in. Medium mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. A great beer that I am very happy to got to share with the DFW Crew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow pour with a small head. Nose is usual Tomme, pretty good with the light sours, sweaty brett, light fruits, house yeast. Really high carbonation in the mouth with a near watery texture. Round brett, thin around the edges, a natural peach character, light in its expression and underwhelming. Pleasant, enjoyable, decent, of course with acetic acid creeping in throughout. It has been a couple of years since I’ve had a great Lost Abbey beer.

pour is a pale golden yellow with lively bubble action and some chunks floating around. Tight fluffy white head. The nose is tight leathery sweaty Brett, lost abbey yeast, and nice sweet peach. The taste is more peach forward, sweet but not sugary. The brett is lighter with a bit of sourness and some acetic acid in the back. Good light, soft body, highly carbonated. A touch simple and has a bit of an acetic character. Doubt this will hold on very long...shocking!

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle w/ James and Linh. Pours a cloudy and murky hazy golden color. Small to medium white head, tiny bubbles, nice lacing. Aromas of peach, gueze, sour lemons, funky lactic yeast and acids. Taste is ultra tart lemons, peach skins, dried apricots, funky and oaky wood, horseblanket. Insanely sour. Mouth was as smooth as can be. I think this is the most traditional tasting sour of all the veritas’.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the DC Lambic & Sour Tasting on April 14, 2012 as part of a full Veritas set, 001-010. Served in a Lost Abbey Teku.
Big thanks to craytonic for bringing this one.
Pours a slightly-cloudy peach color with a small white head that diminishes quickly before falling to a thin collar.
The nose has a light-medium amount of horsiness (can that be a word, please?) underneath a good dose of peaches and moderate acidity.
The flavor hits the peaches quite a bit harder and has a really nice fruit component to match up with the mild earthiness behind the fruit. Light pit character along with medium acidity. Long finish with the acidity getting a bit more intense.
Body is light with average carbonation and a quite-dry finish.
Really a nice brew that is doing well at this young age, though it could probably use a bit more time to develop before the fruit starts to fade too much.

Pours a deep golden color with a light, white head. Aroma is peach with some great funk. you can Taste the peach but just adds to the sour pucker. More funk in the taste and some sweetness. Overall, one of my favorite Lost abbey.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by CaseyK...thanks Casey! - Hazy dark gold pour with a thin off-white head. Nose is peach/apricot wtih a light sourness. Tart, but not overly so. This is pretty delicate and gentle--I don’t know why, but I expected more funk. I like it though--I enjoy the balance and restraint. Taste is peaches up front, fading into a sharp citrus snap, with a dry tartness. It shifts from the gentleness of the nose to the aggressive bitter tartness. Big carbonation fizzes and fluffs up the body, though it gets in the way of the flavors a bit. Happy to try this one...really good stuff.
