Thanks to Beerlando for providing rate number 1000. It has been an honor to enjoy so many great beers with you, and the rest of the Orlando guys. Pours a golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma of lemons, dust and a tart acidity. Flavor is acidic and slightly watery, which takes just a bit away. Lemon peels, dust and the grassy plains are in the flavor. A great brew. patrickfannon (1241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with James and Dallas. Huge thank you to James for busting out this rare beauty in honor of his last day in Philadelphia and Medford. The pour is a semi-flourescent soft transparent with an initially smooth, bubbly, fluffy, one-finger off-white head. Aroma of sour lemon zest, salty cheese rind, soft tannins, leather, soap suds, lavender, Sharpie marker, honey, freshly cut wheat, and dry aromatic bitter hops. Medium bodied with a thin, tea-like, cuttingly sharp, crispyly dry mouthfeel. Mouthwatering sourness in this brew. FInishes with a superbly biting, lactic sourness and subtle creaminess. Wow. This is a tremendous beer. Well done. Cheers! luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Sampled GABF 07. Beer is medium-hued bright yellow. Head is small, off-white, frothy and mostly lasting.<P>First impression on the nose is wild and tart. Malty with light notes of toasted grain and biscuit; Hoppy with moderate notes of lemon zest, light floral notes; Moderate yeast notes of vinous white whine, horse blanket and barn; Light miscellaneous notes of tropical fruit and vanilla.<P>The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic with an extra-long, light-moderately acidic, lightly sweet finish. Nice juicy dry linger.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Amazing brew from Tomme and also thanks to Christian.
The appearance wasn’t important to me, I do know what it looked like but the nose coming from the glass as I held it to my nose made me almost forget where I was and what was going on around my even tho’ I was in the midst of the din from the brewery and the bar tasting area.
I just could not get that darn glass away from my nose. Sour green apples but so much more. The funk, ahhh, the funk.
I savored this and sipped it for a long time and I was actually sad when the glass was empty but felt very gratefull when I heard Tomme say that it was the best brew he has ever done.
Simply an amazing brew.Thanks again to Tomme and to you Christian for a great evening. Jayb0 (1212) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2008
Part of the incredible line up at Monk’s Lost Abbey dinner. Excellent beer, tart and mildy funky on the nose, tart and estery both coming together and showing just enough restraint. Thomme and LA have mastered the interplay of flavors and providing intracate but drinkable beers.

Sampled at last summer’s Cleveland bash. Dark straw colored body. Lively carbonation. Great flavor with a nice balance of lemon, herbal notes, and light hints of peach. Great sour aspect to this beer. radarsock (1204) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2014

2009 Bottle from Toronado in San Diego. Poured a light golden color with nice foamy head. Aroma of vinegar, spices, dried fruit, lemon. Nice tartness with some brett present. Very nice carbonation surprisingly. Overall very good, im glad I had the opportunity to get this. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Bottle. Sampled at Monk’s Cafe Lost Abbey Dinner 2/12/08. When I arrived at Monks for the dinner and saw this beer on the menu, I was incredibly excited. I thought I’d never get to sample this beer; leave it to Monks to prove me wrong!
Pours transparent golden, capped with a minimal off-white head. Nose is tart, with some wild yeast, citrus, and some earthy and herbal notes. Aroma is a bit restrained, and not over-the-top funky. Flavor is tart, with some citrus, grass, wild yeast, tropical fruit and white grape notes adding complexity. Lively carbonation. Finish is long and primarily lactic. This is really well crafted and seems to emphasize some of the more subtle character of American sour ales, rather that going for intense, mouth puckering tartness. Another all-star performance from Lost Abbey!
