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.

Lilja (1853) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2014
Ölföreningen 2014. Smak och doft av körsbär, tranbär, russin, fikon portvin, ekfat, trä, torkad frukt, plommonkärnor med toner av äppelvinäger. Syrlig, frisk, lagom sötma. Tjock, rund och len. Välbalanserad med lite strävhet i beskan. Så mycket smak, bland det godaste jag smakat.

Saeglopur (538) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 2, 2014
375 ml bottle from Beergium.com, 2013 edition.
Dark brownish red body, no head.
Aroma is sour, tart, with barrel notes, barnyard, cherry, dark berries, dried fruits, brown sugar, some vinegar.
Wonderful taste, full, satisfyingly tart and sour, but still comfortable, with quite similar aromas as in the nose, but with even more depth.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes sour and with long-lasting wooden barrel notes.

Delicious! Feels more like a red wine than a beer, very complex, deep and luxurious. The balance is just oustanding! One of the very best sour beers I’ve had so far, although I’ve enjoyed the Rodenbach Caractère Rouge even a bit more.

chimpgibbon (365) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber no head. Yeasty sour aroma with plenty of berries. Alcohol sweetness too. Rich mouthfeel moving to dry end. Good micro bubble zing. Taste is sour cherry, hint of bourbon. Some blackcurrant. Very well crafted - great balance. Up there with the Rodenbach Vintages, indeed maybe better as the BAing gives it a warmth and rounded finish. Top.

beeranarchist (214) - Aalborg, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2014
Dark brown, bit murky, with no head. Love aroma with notes of balsamic vinegar, sour cherries, black currants. The taste is sweet and sour with a slightly bitter finish. The flavour is dominated is fruity, almost sweets-like, notes, caramelly and with a sligthly roasty and bready note too. Full-bodiet and flat.

ciocanelu (101) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 21, 2014
Pours muddy dark brown with absolutely no head. Very complex aroma with dark fruits like sour/bitter cherries, figs, dates, plums and some nice bourbon. Taste starts tart with the fruits mentioned and finishes slightly bitter and tart. Bourbon is present all the way. Long, pleasant aftertaste. Quite balanced considering all the ingredients. Body is pretty heavy with almost no carbonation. Overall this is an excellent beer. One of the best and most complex sour beers I ever had.

bartlebier (2226) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 12.7oz bottle, no batch or bb date. Bold Object Randomly & Idiosyncratically Smuggled into a generous locals4locals trade box, danke! Dalí meets viticulture manual label, corked and caged. Pours flat and deep bordeaux. Condensed flemish Burgundy, RedBrown aroma: balsamico, cherry stone, milk chocolate, plum wine. Vinous in palate and barrel tannins: oak complements the almond of cherry stone, vanilla, raisin and Mon Chérie sweetness underneath. Drinks like a pinot noir or more bodacious-barreled Spätburgunder, with even less carbonation. Well-made quality US sour that obviously has been granted the luxury of time and patience to grow into a well-rounded sipper. worth a side-to-side tasting with several Rodenbach vintages.
