4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: pour is murky golden, like apricot, with an excellent pillowy white head in this lost Abbey glass. It retains well, with sticky lacing too. The nose is quite nice to me: wet oak, fruitiness like peaches, a certain sweetness is present like candied sugar. The flavor profile reveals the sour notes initially, there is a certain funk.albeit mild here, more peaches, some light lactic, the wet oak is present, with some grasses, barnyard, and bread near the finish. Overall, a most excellent brew lacking a touch of complexity, if my only (minor) complaint

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(750ml bottle thanks to BMan1113VR) cloudy peach colored beer with ring of white bubbles and tons of head. Nose of char wood, peach, funky, wet barrel, smells so delicious. Taste of very tart peach, wet wood, pedio, charred wood, very gueuze like, just awesome. Very well carbonated, and an awesome palate cleanser. Love this one.

A few samples at EBF NoTB, favourite sour for sure. Hazy pale yellow with an off white head. Acidic and vinegar sourness, some funk, some lemon zest and peach skin. Mild carbonation, full body - sourness hits your palate but then backs off a bit to allow more of the fruit and funk to come out, and it seems like it becomes a bit mellow with some oak at the end along with some dryness. A very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip.
A very hazy golden color with a ton of carbonation out of the bottle.
Sour peach and oak come rise above a blonde base beer aroma. There is a bit of vinegar as well.
Peach, light malts, crisp, tart, fairly sour during the flavor with a lingering sourness. There is a little bit of lemon zest and some oaky white wine notes. The peaches are not as full as I would have hoped. The depth is kind of lacking in the flavor.
Veritas 010 is very crisp, and the medium body borders on over-carbonated.
This is a nice beer, but my expectations are very high for a beer in the Veritas series.

Bottle at Lost Abbey Tap Room, many thanks to the very generous Tomme. It pours light orange, with a thin white head. The nose is farmyard, tart lemon, tart peach, nectarine and funk - gorgeous! The taste is tart peach, apricot, pineapple, Seville orange, lemony tartness and lactic acid, with a tart finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Straight up delicious, with drinkability through the roof. Yum!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks Baron for bringing this rare treat. Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bright peach in color with a half fingers worth spritzy white head. Hazy in clarity. Nose reminds me a lot of fresh Fou Foune, particularly a peach yogurt character. Peach doesn’t come out as much in the flavor, this seems to have more of a citrusy, white wine character. Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation, average acidity, and a medium finish. Good beer, but I don’t think this is the next Yellow Bus. Probably still prefer Fou Foune and Flaming Fury in terms of peach/apricot sours.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
On draft at night of the barrels. Light orange color with a decent white head. Carbonation is a little high, but it is still a fabulouse funky sour peach ale. Very nice.

Pouring at Night of the Barrels. This one completely had me wowed. Great aroma of sour funk and dried fruit. Sour flavor that makes the cheeks pucker with joy. Probably my 2nd favorite beer that night.

Bottle from Bill.
Pours a cheddar orange with a nose of cedar, leather, and horse must. Flavor is sour leather horse blanket from a musty attic. Tingly on the tongue. Wowsers.

Pouring at the Night of the Barrels on the Friday night of EBF 2012. Pours golden with a thin white head and a few floaties in it, interesting. Big sour funky acid on the nose. Sour acid, sharp lemon. Spicy with sharp lemon. Spicy acid, bright and lemony. Long biting acid with vinegar on the finish.
