3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted at the brewery of course and poured into an LA tulip. Orange brown in color with a small head. Some funk and oak in the aroma. Flavors were mildly tart along with the barrel and spice of the Gift of The Magi. Interesting and good beer with maybe cool potential to age well. We will all see.
From notes. Enjoyed this at Mickey’s 30th birthday bash on November 05. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a golden orange color with a thick white head that dissipates rapidly. The aroma is definitely funky, lightly sour, nicely peachy with a hint of oak and a touch of dusty barnyard to it. It’s really well balanced. The flavor has much of the same types of things. Light peachiness, good funky barnyard, citrus zest, and a nice sour. The mouth feel is a little thick, but brightly carbonated with a lingeringly sour and peachy funk finish. This was a nice completion of the set! hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016

Hazy orange, smal off-white head. Aroma is tart, funky and fruit with peach skins, apricot, lemon, brett
Taste is slight sour, fruity and juicy. Finish is slight dry, tart and fruity with some juicy peach notes, some lemon juice, minerals, grape skins, oak.
Medium bodied, small bubble carbonation.
Nice tartness and fruitiness.
Bottle bought through Drikkeriget. Pours hazy reddish golden with a very small offwhite head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and fruity with crackers, dark bread, lemon juice, grapes, hay, dry soil, barnyard, vinegar and lemon zest. Taste is sour, slightly malty and slightly fruity. Mouthfeel is dry, tart and light to medium bodied. Finish is sour with balanced malts, fruit and acidity. Very nicely balanced. I love how the malts are there without overwhelming and that the acidity is balanced and not huge in that charming American way. Nice! AdmiralVernon (1195) - SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016

Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours a hazy deep amber orange with a white head that starts and remains at the edges. Aroma has sour cherry and red fruits with light acid and oak. Flavor has a nice sour fruit note with earthy funk, some oak and a bit of acid. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2016
375ml bottle acquired via trade on BA. Shared with deyholla. Pours a nice copper rose hue, a gentle haziness but largely transparent with a very pretty color, rich glow. Frothy whitish head stays as a decent ringer, laces nicely. Aromas are funky and a bit fruity, dried and dark fruit, subtle plum and date meet subtle raisin, earth, some lactic appeal. Firmer bretty funk, some mellow oak, cobwebs and some vinous and black cherry character. Initial is lighter bodied, some expressive middling acidity compliments gentle estery fruit character, earth, and cobwebs. Some mellow oak, wine barrel and a bit of cranberry. Earthy, funky, a more sustained wild offering that restrains the acidity, let’s the brett express itself a bit better. Some tannic barrel appeal, some dryness and lingering funk, subtle yogurt, melon, and crab apple. A bit of earthy and grainy sweetness, on point wild yeast with a pretty masterful blend. Complex, dry, funky, oak. Tasty stuff. gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - SEP 27, 2015

Thanks to Kraddel. 375 ml. bottle split by 2. Pours a dark amber, little white head on the side. Nose is fascinating, puckering oak with a touch of glue but lots of mandarin, fruity mixed with some candy sugar malts, wonderful mix of malts & great sour character. Taste is puckering big fruity mandarin, just the right touch of candy malts, great mix with light honey, oak, brett, very light lactic, lemon, fascinating complimentary touch of caramel, fruity wine, caramel & puckering sour,… Fittingly malty body but only lightly so with quite a bit of oak, touch wine, caramel,… Really good. Lost Abbey sours are amazing. Great beer.
