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.

The beer pours a very unique color. The beer is dark red, almost a bloddy red, very deep color. There is lots of head, another interesting color that is tan with light red high lights. The head is gone right away, light lacing. The aroma is light, initially you just get some medium horse blanket. If you let it linger the raspberries really start to present it self in a very sweet tart true raspberry aroma. The taset is very tart, this is a true pucker but its also a one noter. This is not balanced at all. At the very end you get some tart raspberries. The feel is strong, very sticky, and tickles all the way down your throat. Drinkability is a little down, its very sour.

Bottle:   Deep caramel, moderate sandy colored head, fairly nice lacing.   Oh wow, super tart unripened Raspberry like nose.   Its like a combo of Raspberry preserves and basement funk.   The Raspberries are rather bright in this aroma.   Smells very lucious!   Very tart on the tongue, dry, with heaps of immature or unripened Raspeberries.   Its not a sweet beer at all, instead it has loads of flavor while remaining nice and tart.   Super clean, just simply tart, dry, with a heaping of tart and immature Raspberries.   Almost finishes too quick, wishing it were a little less dry and instead a touch sweeter and more ripe.   However, as is its very delectable and tasty.   Oh yeah, its like right before you add the pectic stuff to your Raspberry Jam, this is it, totally.   Great stuff!   Thanks Ron for this treat!

Oakes (16516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Muddy, like pomengranate juice. The aroma is big raspberry with some light bugs and woody tartness. Tart, with dry berry character. Finish has yoghurty notes but is almost bone dry...nice.

Lost Abbey oli ern viikonlopun maistelusession ensimminen olut ja odotukset olivat korkealla. Muistiinpanoja kaivellessa lytyy seuraavaa: Pullo avautuu todella nekksti poksahtaen. Oluessa on punainen vri ja todella runsas, punertava, vaalea vaahto. Tuoksussa on runsaasti marjaisia vivahteita. Vadelmia ja mansikkahilloa. Maultaan olut on todella kirpe marjapommi. Maku suorastaan el suussa. Hiiva tulee esille. Neste muuttuu tummemmaksi ja sakeammaksi, kun oluen loput kaatuvat lasiin. Nyt mys huomaan jotain oransseja tpli ainakin vaahdossa. Tm on vhn kuin Rodenbach Grand Crun ja gueuzen sekoitus. Todella hapan ja hyv olut. Ei todellakaan pettnyt odotuksia.

Cloudy raspberry color with a light head lacing around the rim and sporadic thin lacing in the middle. Sour raspberry, oak chips, brett, sugar, and funk on the nose. Wow! Prominent raspberry sour, sugar, oak, and spicy carbonation. Crisp carbonation, sourt assault on the tongue. Bitter dry finish and alcohol in the nose. Thumbs up to LA for this creation.
