Lost Abbey Sinners Ale 2010


Formerly brewed at Port Brewing/Lost Abbey
San Marcos, California USA
Style: Sour Red/Brown | Ratings: 108 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 8%
We’d like you to know that we’ve taken some inspiration from the wine world for this blend. We have one oak barrel that was a sour base beer with Cabernet Franc grapes. We also stole a barrel of Brandy Angel’s Share that was earmarked for the next Angel’s Share Grand Cru. Lastly we blended in a barrel of Red Wine French Oak barrel aged Gift of the Magi with a smooth oak bretty backbone to complete the blend.

The beer is meant to be consumed and treated like a red wine. We expect there will be little to no bubbles. The oak presence is quite strong and the beer certainly will develop into a much rounder ale with some time in the cellar. Not all our beers are designed to be consumed early in their life. We took a chance with this one that more time would be a benefit to the blend. We expect those who have the patience to wait will be rewarded
