4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tasted from a corked and caged 750mL bottle at FoBAB 2011. Pours cloudy pale yellow with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin, even lace. The nose is super sour and fruity with white wine vinegar, peach, and white wine vinegar, signature Lost Abbey sour. The flavor is intensely sour with all of the white wine vinegar, lemon acidity, peach, and barnyard funk from the nose. The body is medium with a sticky tannic texture, average carbonation, and a long sour peach and funky finish.

FoBAB 11’ Not really my cup of tea, but I can see why those who like Sours rave about it. For what it is it is quite good. Pours a gold with a thin fizzy head.

Yellow bus Jr! Nice funky smell but wouldn’t have guessed peach. Subtle peach taste that is super, super nice. Peach comes through when it warms up

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a bright yellow gold with a amber tint. Atop sits a white film and white edges.
Aroma: A mixture of funk and lactic notes. Some bretty petting zoo funk. Peach pit.
Taste: Mild peach tartness, lactic acid, Vinegar. A little brett, pineapple, peach fruitiness. Not much wood or tannins.
Mouthfeel: Tongue curling, full bodied. Fizzy.
Overall: So delicious. I couldn’t control myself, I was like a kid with a cup of soda. It was just so tasty and inviting, I couldn’t slow down with it. I’m not in the "It needs more time" camp. It’s drinking good and sour right now.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours hazy and yellow with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head. Good retention. The nose is heavily acidic, offering funky and fruity notes of aged cheese, peaches, lemon zest and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The fruity flavor is quite tart – bordering on sour – with a light peachy sweetness that does cut into the acidity a touch. Tarty, fruity finish with a rumor of salt. This world class bottle of beer was provided by giarcsr!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At FOBAB, Chicago 2011. Honey orange and cloudy, with some light, misty white head. A vinegary nose, with some nice mixed fruits, especially sour peaches, and very light oaky wood. This slightly underwhelming aroma leads the way to a flavor that is a totally different animal. Its still not terribly complex, but a great, slightly acidic tartness permeates with peaches and berries. The finish finishes with light oak, and prickling citrus peach. The end product may not be mind-blowing overall, but still quite tasty.

Bottle shared by Bankhead. Thanks! Pours a hazy straw-lemon color with a thin offwhite head. Fair head retention. Aroma of peaches, citrus and mild funk. The taste is big sour peaches, citrus and a mild funky finish. Intense taste. Light bodied and very refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy yellow. Nose is kinda ketchupy, peach and apricot appear. But the nose is a bit wierd for sure. Flavor is great. Strongly sour up front with a long peach heavy finish. Lemon zest also figures into the finish and the body is pretty full for a sour. Solid but not the best Veritas.
