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.
