(Bottle shared at Black Friday by Sparky!!). Pours a cloudy yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma is sour peach and apricot. Taste is sour, tart with lots of rip pit fruits. This is one outstanding beer. Thanks for sharing Eric!

FOBAB 2011. Pours a cloudy, golden colored body with a thin, frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Lots of oak and peach on the nose with a moderate sourness. Somewhat funky with slightly acidic, tart fruits as well. Flavor is much better. Lots of juicy sourness up front with some tart citrus, funky brett, and smooth, somewhat sweet peaches. Just a very light pale malt base as this finishes woody and oaky while staying very clean and dry with a light lingering sourness and a nice peach sweetness. Lengthy, somewhat acidic, tart fruit aftertaste with lots of oak following a medium-light body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, the flavor really brought it on this. The aroma was nothing special, but the flavor had a nice sourness without being puckering and a very pleasant fruit and peach. The oak dries this very nicely as this finishes nicely tart. A bit overhyped in my opinion, but solid.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle generously shared by Sparky @ BF tasting. Vibrant 14 karat pour produced a small but lively ivory head that quickly diminished to a ring. Aroma of tart unripened peach, lemon zest, grapefruit pith, and funk. Flavor shows the peach although more subtly. Quite acidic, vinegar qualities present, bit o’ barnyard, bitter, tangy, sour but palatable. Really well done...definitely one of the best in the series!

Bottle (and some tasting notes from the release). Pours a deep golden color with a light, white head. Aroma is of slight peach but some great funk and otherwise "sour’ notes. Taste is of slightly unripe peach but just adds to the sour pucker. More funk in the taste and some sweetness I wasn’t expecting. Overall, one of my favorite Lost Abbey sours to date.

WOW, i was very lucky to try this at the black friday tasting. Might be the best sour beer i have ever had. Very nice aromas and the taste was right there with the aroma. I would love to have more then a two ounce sample but i will take what i can get!

Bottle at Black Friday tasting. This was veritably delicious. Socky and earthy. Light lemon rind character. Quite earthy funky. A bit leathery.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Pour from a bottle thanks to Chris at a recent tasting. Not a lot of pop off the cork and carbonation on the low side right off the bat. Color was gold orange with out much head. A bit of funk and fruit on the nose. Lemon, peach, and some grapefruit. Nice tart sourness with some oaky earthy notes. Peach presence tasted natural and not overstated. Really enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2011 FoBAB 9 - Saw about 5 pale nerds sprint (as fast as they could) for this as soon as they found out it was here, 20 friends of theirs laughing knowingly as if this is normal, even an inside joke... must be a BA thing. Murky gold, thin fizzy white ring. Standard LA house yeast character in nose, moderate, unripened peach attempting to mask paint thinner and green stalk. Flavor is considerably better, still undesirables like lotion, but also high lactic qualities with serious peach and citrus, growing through the soft, playfully well-carbonated finish, a bit oily but not nearly as bad as LA can be, some off-setting brett in the end. The errors are there, but at this age, still a very enjoyable beer to drink. Get it while it lasts (and before it becomes a whale).

On tap at Fobab 9. Pours lightly hazed light golden. Aromas of peach, apricot, lemon, funk, and some light wood. Flavor is sour with peaches and lemon, some funk in there as well. Finishes with some sweetness and not overly sour.Kink of had a fizzy carbonation but worked well. One of the first beers I grabbed at Fobab and glad I had the opportunity to sample.
