BlackSwan (24) - Frisco (Dallas), USA - MAY 1, 2011
Pours a reddish brown body with a huge frothy cream head. Aroma is rich with cherry and raspberry. The mouthfeel is full in body and medium in warmth. You can taste dark fruits, primarily the cherry and raspberry with some wood. The flavor is accompanied by strong lime. This beer leaves a dry finish. It is tart very delicious.

RB1 (118) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2011
12.7 oz. 2010 bottle from Daknole. Pours a murky reddish-purple, with a smallish pink head. Aroma is outstanding over the top fresh raspberries. Taste is sour, tart, funky raspberry, with oak notes. Finish is tart, sour and acidic with lingering raspberry as the final impression. This ale is raspberry from start to finish. Simply a fantastic sour ale. If all sours were this good, they would be my favorite style.

Shared with some of the best beer loving friends a guy could have. Thanks for saving it for one our mini tastings, Reg. I love the bouquet. The olfactory properties are wonderful. Earthy tart funky and Raspberries. The flavors are more tart then sour. Slight harsh finish. Fantastic beer.

joeneugs (6063) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 20, 2011
On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. It pours muddy red/brown with a small off white head. The aroma is straight up fresh raspberry puree. Very tart and seedy. The flavor is massive, mouth watering, and thick with tart raspberry puree and balanced somewhat with some basement funk and a mildly drying Bretty finish. The acidity mildly slashes the throat on the way down. This is a good, big bodied fresh fruity sour ale.

TURDFERGUSON (4051) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2011
2010 Bottle, thanks Dakine! Pours a deep dark reddish pink purple with a strong, solid off-white head. Nose of strong acetic acid, tart raspberry, oak, yeast. Good fruity presence throughout, some more acetic acid and light nail polish remover, but it doesnt detract from the rest of the beer. Carbonation may be a little high, but its hard to complain about that in anything you get from Lost Abbey. Very tart and tasty though.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle 2011 vintage. Murky clay colored reddish/brown with a pink head. Raspberry seed aromas. A little over carbonated, but nothing like the 10 vintage. Tart raspberry, vinegar, and a hint of funk in the taste. Not overly sour, just a damn good ale.... (original rating 4.1) Re-rate (on tap at Pizza Port Solana)

Bottle: The aroma consists of sweet raspberry with a hint of tartness and a strange funkiness. It pours a transparent amber with a minimal ring for a head. The flavor starts with sweet raspberries and a touch of caramel. The finish has tart raspberry and a touch of funk. Medium bodied with lovely carbonation.

Great beer. I was surprised how sour this beer actually is. The apperance is a brown color with a deep red hue. It pours with a nice beige head that goes away quickly. The aroma is full of raspberries and the smell of the oak barrels that it was aged in. The taste is very sour. Since I enjoy sour beers this is not a problem, but it may be surprising for those expecting a lighter sour beer. The flavor is full of the raspberry and carbonation at the beginning followed by the yeast and a sour finish. It leaves a great taste on the tongue.

Bottle. The cork breaks off then crumbles as I try to extract it with a corkscrew, but the beer has none of the sediment problems Ive read about previously.

Muddy brown with red highlights, decent tan head. Nose of bright and sugary raspberry jam -- intense. But theres nothing sweet about the flavor. Rather, a wickedly tart (think straight lemon juice, but then amped up further.) Not much funk, plenty of power, unripe raspberry. Something I associate with oud bruin (what is that flavor??) underneath it all but much more buried than in the sweeter e.g. Duchess. Tartness dominates the mouthfeel and the late finish, which is a bit of a letdown because theres some gorgeous raspberry hiding in there somewhere and it doesnt get a full chance to shine.

Finale split with Jay to end our epic adventure in nv/cali. Really saved the best for last... Incredible brew. Pour is ruby and brown haze with thin white powdery sediment... fast, fuzzy and vivacious carbonation. Smell is sugary Belgian brightly carbonates... Like Unibroue. Taste is aggressive ripe rasp/cherry, vinegar, ultra sweet and burns all the way down with insane acidity.
