UPDATED: JAN 29, 2009 750 mL bottle. Poured a clear yellow/gold color with a small white head. The aroma was peach and citrus with a funky note. The flavor was tart with peach and a spicy finish. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. I was wild about this beer. This is by far my favorite sour, and I’m glad I got to taste this.

Sampled at the brewery for RBSG 08. Pours a clear, amber-gold with a white ring. Tart aroma, of citrus fruits and berries. Taste is sweet and sour, of lemons, with a nice cleanness. Lingering sour crispness. Wonderful sour ale.

22oz, unmarked bottle thanks to toncatcher for sharing. Most definitley my favorite Lost Abbey beer to date. Tart aromas of mango and apricot and pineapple and lots of peaches. Flavor was similar and very tart. Mostly peach, but also some Apple and cherry and everything sour. Ii love love love this beer.

From a 750mL Bottle. RBSG 2008. Mostly transparent, straw gold colored pour with a thin layer of white head. Lots of musky brett in the nose, accompanied by notes of tart peach skins and fruity pear flesh. Mildly acetic with hints of acetone. Pleasant interplay between old, funky brett and bright tartness of the peaches. Medium light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a bold acidity. Mildly acetic, with an outstanding peach flesh flavor. Hints of peach juice sweetness, but also plenty of skin characters. Tart and woody, which combine with a restrained alcohol presence to create a warming peppery finish. Great beer overall, and certainly one to consider producing regularly. I wish I had a case.

This presently top-50 beer is entered to celebrate my 1900th US rating. Bottled at RBSG 2008. A hazy golden beer with a white head. The aroma is acidic with notes of malt, citrus, wood, and brettanomyces. The flavor is acidic with quite strong notes of wood and brettanomyces, with a tart finish. Very nice.

RBSG 2008. Pours gold, medium cloudiness with a small white head. Tart peach nose, funky and delicious. Earthy and some lemon notes. This really came together well, the fresh juicy peach flavors and the spicy estery finish just played off each other really well.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Sampled at RBSG. Slightly cloudy golden color with a thin, even layer of white foam. The aroma has a nice sharp acetic funk that is calmed by the presence of the fruity sweetness of peach flesh. The combination of sweet and sharp works great. Taste has moderate acidity, the peach presence a little less apparent, but still there. Slight musky notes add a welcome balance to the sweet characters. The use of peaches here is executed brilliantly. I keep trying to look for reasons to not give this such a high score, but I can’t find any.

Bottled at Lost Abbey, 2007 bottle. Poured just about clear medium golden with a short, fizzy cap of white head. The aroma was powerful with tart peach skins and lesser apricot upfront and a fresh, spicy oak impression supporting it.. very assertive. The flavor found bracingly tart peach skins that singed the tip of the tongue for an initial impression.. some meaty peaches rolled in behind along with a second hit of acidity (vinegar and more peach skins).. engaging throughout. Lots of lip-puckering sourness on the palate along with light scratchy bitterness and zesty wheat.. long, bone-dry, memorable finish. Excellent!
