UPDATED: AUG 12, 2011 Bottle shared at the LCBS 10. Even in this stellar line up, YB was one of the stunners. Big peach and tart fruit aromas burst out of the golden colored ale. YB lives up to the hype! In my opinion this smooth devil is really a wild ale and is delightfully lacking in the sour department. The taste is crisp with ripe peaches, tart fruit, and light funk caressing the old cake hole.. Outstanding....

Bottle Dr. Bill’s tasting one of only two beers I reviewed that night. Yes I know this was a while back but like I said the back log is looking ugly. Moving forward. Pours out cloudy straw color topped with a white head. Aroma was of light peach sweetness, tart, funk, and sweet malts. Taste is much the same light peach not as much as I was thinking. Then again my palate had been working overtime that night. I was just happy to try it.

[Bottle] shared by beerndogs. This is one that I never thought I would see, thanks Randall! Pours a clear deep, glowing gold with a small off white head. Aroma of ripe peaches - flesh, skins, pit and all, light funk, light acidic character as well. Flavor is well balanced for a Lost Abbey sour - minerally, jammy peach, and a touch of funk. Quite dry with low carbonation and a moderate mouthfeel.

Shared by Randall. Thanks so much! Murky golden body. Mix of sweet and sour in the aroma with a nice funky citrus blending in with apricot scents. Medium mouthfeel with low carbonation (which I like). Very complex flavor. Sour taste up front, acetic and funky. Some biscuit flavors come through as it warms as well as some grassy notes. Good balance overall.

Holy god... finally!!! 750ml unlabeled bottle. Beautiful hazed golden pour. Minimal head and little appearance of carbonation. The color absolutely glows, though. Lots of musty peach meat on the nose initially. Plenty of souring bugs and yeast. I get a little bit of spice (cinnamon maybe???). Musty basement cellar with some mothball action as well. Aged cheddar. The tart peach skin on the nose is just stellar! Flavor is just as awesome as the aroma. More wood and barrel presence on the tongue than on the nose. The wood tannin really hits you on the sides of the tongue. Lots of musty pear... skins and juicy meat. Lots (but not overpowering) acetic acid. Fairly sour but balanced with the fruit. Lush and creamy texture with pitch-perfect carbonation and conditioning. The finish is tart, acidic and lasts forever. Top notch and well-deserved of it’s top 50 status. Thanks a ton Randall!

750mL bottle shared by ygtbsm94 at the DC epic tasting. Poured a clear golden/light orange color with a dissipating head. Almost smells like a true lambic with peach cobbler. Deep sour smell, tart. Taste is significantly better than aroma. Peaches much more present in the taste. Mouthfeel is great. Very pleasant brew. Definitely one sided on the peach but awesome.

nimbleprop (4809) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Sampled at DC Epic Sour Tasting 2010. Pours a bright, caramel orange with a thin, creamy white head. Nose is sweet, malty, caramel, sugary, a little yeast, peach juice, light hay, light herbs. The peach juice is really a star in the nose, especially as it warms. Flavor is sweet and tart, oranges, peaches, kumquats, acidic, spices, blood oranges. Finish is tart and dry. Very unique.

750mL courtesy of ygtbsm94. A silver sharpie has labeled this bottle sort of haphazardly and the bottle shows a Lost Abbey cork and cage. The pour is cloudy, glowing apricot orange with pretty much no head. Aroma is sour funk, ripe cheese, peach flesh, nectarine skins, lactic acid fattness, orange creamsickle, peach ice cream. Taste is insane sour that goes spicy. It is full of cotton candy, tangerine, fresh peach, peach fuzz, insanely rich fruit. Zippy palate that quickly warps away all sensation into a full fattiness and then nothing whatsoever. The lambic does its work quickly on the palate and then fades. Just spectacular.
