Bottle. I can’t believe I use to hate this style. Nice sour aroma and taste. Very complex witn notes of vino, dark fruit, wood, vanilla and cherry.
Very sour / tart finish. Amazing.

Bottle from my new buddy bytemesis - thanks man! Deep reddish cola pour with no head. Cherry and wood, hint of raisin, slight booziness, fairly dense on the tongue and also a bit lively. Delicious!

Very dark brown in color, no head. Nose of sour cherries. Taste of tart sour cherries, malty, boozy, raisins. Buttery mouthfeel. Finishes with a balanced sourness. Carbonation was a little dead in my bottle, but that was fine with me. Great tasting sour, would love another one!

08/02/2014 Bottle shared @ Ma che Siete Venuti a fà (thanks Manuele Colonna!). Ambrata carica vermiglia, con riflessi rubino, schiuma biancastra media. Naso impressionante per intensità, molto legno, frutta rossa, vinosa, alcol ben nascosto. In bocca è acida decisa, intensa e lunghissima, ancora note di frutta rossa, vinosa, ancora legno, una nota acetica caratterizzante. Corpo medio, grande intensità e carattere. Una signora birra!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12.7 oz corked and caged bottle, labeled as Lost Abbey Cuvee de Tomme; labeled as 11.0% ABV. Aroma consists of wood, vinegar, Band-Aid, funk, overripe dark fruit, raisins. Pours a headless dark brown with a thin beige collar of foam. Taste is extremely sour (10/10 on a sour scale), acidic, savory, lots of dark fruit mingling with woody notes; finishes with a tannic dryness. Carbonation is fairly soft but it’s a lot more there than the unblended lambic I had before this. Awesome!

Fresh on tap. Delicious. Not an aggressively tarty sour. Great fruity flavor and a pronounced funk.

12.7 oz bottle- Pours a very dark red with no head but some carbonation bubbles floating to the surface. Aroma is tart cherries, funk, wood, pie crust. The taste is cherry filling, moderately tart, wood. This is extremely delicious but to say it’s unlike anything else I think is a little misleading.

On tap for Sacramento beer week. I’ve been hunting down sours and finally nailed one. Aroma is sour but has some red malt aroma as well. Flavor is moderately sour with a nice sweet sour malt finish. This is great!
