Once upon a time it was the most award winning Pizza Port beer of all time. Now it has found a new home at The Lost Abbey. A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with. One of the most complex and unique beers we make each year.

Bottle at De Koffer, Groningen. Complex aroma is malty, sour red fruits, tart cherries, oak, caramel, vinegar, raisins, funky yeast. Flavour is quite sour with a touch of malty sweetness. Body is medium. Wow, wonderfully complex and strong sour flavour. A great Belgian-style Sour Ale!

SlovakSniper (4824) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2016 Bière rougêatre ou brunâtre, difficile à dire. Nez de chêne, de vinaigre bien fruité en repos sur une base maltée presque chocolatée. Sur les papilles, bonnes cerises aiguisées sur des céréales qui veulent arrondir. Touche épicée qui s’apparente à la cannelle. Bouche moyenne-mince avec pétillement très bas et texture vineuse. Finale fruitée acidulée assez poignante. Bonne!

Rask0lnikov (569) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2016
Ruby dark red colour. No head at all. Cherries, oak, coffee beans, dark chocolate in the aroma. Very balanced and enjoyable smell. Cherriies and other berries at first. Dark chocolate, coffee in the middle. Sour, spicy finish. Rather medium bodied, very well balanced, exceptional beer with amazing palate. This is so good.

Pours dark brown but still brown, no head. Aroma has booze, sweet dark fruits. Plums and fig fruits. Taste has some intense vinegary sourness. Cherries and some smoky something. Don’t know, just crazy beer. Woody barrel somewhere there too, raisins are probably to blame. Acidity is high, and flavours are full on. Aftertaste is nice lingering and long. I am also getting some tobacco or some reason. Bitterness there. Overall,yep, just crazy.

fkoolen (867) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2016
12.7oz corked bottle at home, opens without a sound. Very dark brown colour, cloudy, no head. Impressive nose big on tard, sour cherries and red wine; green apples, some distant malty, dried fruits and bourbon tones. Taste at first gets these fruity and really sour cherry tones, vinous, then mellows to the roasted malty, vanilla, cask and bourbon base ale. Very well balanced. Aftertaste lingers looooong, fruity, acidic, vinous; some tannine-dry, smoky bitter tones too. Very low carbonation, big body.

TheJestersBeer (2364) - SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2016
375ml bottle. Opens without a sound, and pours a lovely deep tawny brown, with absolutely no head. Complex, mature, sour, acetic aroma, wood, dark fruits, cherries, vanilla, caramel, raisin, chestnut, balsamic notes, prunes, leather. Dry, medium to full bodied, low to mid bitterness, very low CO2. The taste reflects the aroma very well. Complex, mature, with a clean acidity that lingers very long. Excellent balance, the only drawback is the acetic notes that are a bit too upfront. Otherwise, very, very good. (2016-01-17) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ctipping (1040) - Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2016
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 8/27/2011. Deep murky reddish brown body. An aggressive pour yields a good size head. Smell is mostly cherries. Some dark malts linger behind a strong acidity. Tart and a bit of funk to start. Behind the initial tartness is a nice vanilla and slight bourbon flavor. I probably only taste the bourbon since it said bourbon on the label, though. What I do like is how the tartness returns in the finish. Well carbonated and pretty heavy. Delicious beer. I would like more of the original quad to come through, but as a sour it is near perfection.

Draft pour at Brouwer’s big wood festival. This is the 2011, Dark amber pour almost black pour, sweet aroma kind cherry sour, thick taste smooth and sour at the same time lot of cherry on the finish. I’ve had this fresh and it is a lot more sour blends out over time. Awesome beer

willisread (2171) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a dark brown with very little head. Dark fruit all over the nose with rum raisin cake and prune standing out. As it warms the bourbon jumps out and leaves some light oak and vanilla notes as well. Medium body with soft carbonation. Boozy with good tart cherry flavor moving toward the finish. Slightly boozy with an array of flavors that come and go and reappear throughout. Fantastic.
