Bottle, via trade with haukur-- thanks! Nearly still medium brown, hazy, with brick red highlights. Malty with sour cherry and unripened berry character, lots of yogurty lactic acidity. Fairly full bodied, soft mouthfeel with very low carbo. Quite nice.

Bottle, shared. Pours with no carbonation, no head. Murky, dark brick-red, sturdy alcohol legs. Very deep, complicated nose: tart cherry, raisin, caramel, tannin, vanilla, berry notes, balsamic. Decadent beer. Slick mouthfeel, finish sticks around. Big cherry mouthfeel, puckering start, dry ending. Weird and awesome.

-Backlog- Deep red with no head. Aroma is very vinous. Cherries, grapes, red fruit and some raisins. Full and fruity palate with no carbonation. Aftertaste is also full of fruit. Nice small sour bite in the end. Overall: Very interesting and vinous.

All around good balanced brew with each and every flavor, sour and lemon sour and green apple sour but a good backbone of rich leathey and wood oak and pine tar. Medium carbonation. Loved this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Vintage 2012. Has a hazy, deep red brown colour with aproximately no head. Woody aroma with leather, berries, heather, brown sugar, cherries, creme brulee and cola. Has a sour flavour with more cherries, leather, oak and citric acid that lasts. Has a silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A pretty acidic and tasteful sour ale.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cherry Coke appearance, minus the head. No visible head at all. Strong aroma of alcohol, bourbon, some tobacco and dark chocolate. Taste much of the same. No carbonation bothered me. Unique for a sour, but, as I’ve found with many other @lostabbey beers, doesn’t live up to the hype. Alcohol not well hidden, and very prominent on my palate. Disappointing Sour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown murky beer with no head. Aroma has cherries, raisins and bourbon. Flavour is verry sour. Elements from aroma present too. Didn’t hit my sweet spot although I usually like sourness and cherries. Maybe this wasva bit too much everything.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aug Ale Alpharetta - Red/brown, muddy pour with minimal head. Taste is medium light tart, with lots of plum and raisin taste and forcefully finished off by the cherries and bourbon. Complex and tasty. Not overly sweet, but certainly sweet. The tart cherries and the Brett combine for a nice sour experience.

Aroma has a strong overtone of sour fruit and bourbon.bIt pours an opaque cola brown, not much of a head. Tart flavor has notes of cherry, bourbon, sour apple - and will make your face do calisthenics! Firm texture lacks fizz, but leaves a lasting sour fruit finish.
