DSG (12552) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 2, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2016 Re-rate 12/16: Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom Ls place. Vintage 2010. Murky red. Vinegar, lots of berries, sour, acidic, oak, oxidation, a bit of burning acidity in the throat. A bit too too old, a bit too acidic, but still great. Score not calculated. 8/3/8/3/17=3.9

Re-rate 11/3/11: Bottle at home. Shared with Tal. Vintage 2010. Deep unclear red color with a big frothy pinkish white head. Amazing rich raspberry aroma, somewhat funky, with candies, oak, lactic and cellary notes and a bit of caramel and cookies notes. Sour berries flavor with some oak, some cookie-ish malty sweetness and a dry, sour, lactic finish with a faint citric astringency. Later when I pour the last few centiliters left at the bottom of the bottle, flavor seems more sour and lemony. Silky rounded mouthfeel. Amazing stuff, one of the best beers Ive ever had. 9/4/9/5/18=4.5

Bottle at a tasting. Hazy dark red with a big pinkish head. Lovely aroma of brett, oak, lots of raspberries and some citric notes. Dry sour flavor with salty hints, lots of delicious raspberries and light malty hints in the background. Finishes slightly astringent. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Awesome. 8/4/9/4/17=4.2

tomer (3278) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 2, 2011
At a tasting, many thanks DSG, small stable head, murky dark orange to light brown, aroma of raspberries, rose petals, shurbs and vinegar, flavour of raspberries with a strong sourness thats a bit packering and an amazing saltiness, very very dry and just a small touch of bitterness in the back, shortish sour raspberry aftertaste. Very unique and interesting but not easy to drink.

larsga (7386) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2011
Medium pinkish beige head. Hazy deep red body. Waxy raspberry aroma with vinuous earthy fruity syrupy notes. Dry-bitter waxy raspberry and alcohol taste with wooden earthy notes. Light body. Sharp tart mouthfeel. Bitter waxy earthy vinuous wooden aftertaste is intense and long-lasting. Too sharp in the aftertaste, really. It sort of flays the lining off the inside of the mouth. (0.65l bottle, wine monopoly Vika, Oslo.)

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle. Bright red/pink colour with no head. Aroma has tons of fruit, lots of sour raspberries, pear tart, some serious and malicious oak, wine, brandy and a faint alcohol burn. Explosive fruitiness, yet not obnoxiously sweet and candy-like. Very nice balance. Taste has tons of fruit as well. Raspberry, oak, raisins, rum, vanilla, wine, brandy, lovely alcohol-touch. Not extremely complex, just plain damn awesomeness! Fairly heavy sourness, lots of sugary sweetness and almost no alcohol in the taste. exquisite and intense.

Bov (12277) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - cloudy reddish-brown in colour and with a persistent creamy head, nice lace; a solid aroma of wood and vanilla in the front and deep sourish raspberry notes below; very tasty and very carbonated, a robust sourness and a good malt body; the finish is quite dry with overwhelming woody and sourish notes, the raspberries staying again in the background; some warming alcohol notes - far too much wood presence here

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 22, 2011
Pours cloudy and murky brown with no head - classic lost abbey style. Aroma is smack in the face with tart raspberries, oak and trat funky yeasts. Not very complex, but just. Plain nice. Taste is just the same, raspberry explosion, very very tart, funky yeasts and a hints of oak. I really dig this beer.

thewolf (12274) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Den Lille Vinklder, Fredericia.
Pour is light muddy deep red with a fine, staying, frothy white-pink head. Heavy tart aroma, lots of raspberries, funkiness, red apples, milky, some barnyard. Very fresh and with some sweetness to the raspberries. Highish carbonation, good creamy palate even if the carbonation makes it a bit too frothy. Flavour is lovely tart, again lots of fresh raspberries. Astringent, heavy fruity sour in the centre. Some mild caramel in the base. Very lovely, sad that the carbonation is a bit too high for its own good.

HonusWagner (2131) - Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Noticeable amount of acetobacter in the nose. Taste is raspberries, noticeable tart punch, a bit of blackberry pie, not much detectable funkiness. A pretty good sour ale from Tomme, although Id like a bit more funk and a bit less sour, puckering acid.

BeerandBlues2 (12479) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle at 13th Richmond Gathering, courtesy of MrChopin. Pours hazy ruby with an average, fizzy beige head, medium-short retention with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel), light hops (earthy), and average esters (berry) with notes of lactic sourness and raspberries. Flavor is heavy malt (bread, cookie, straw), light hops (earthy), and average esters (berry) with fairly heavy lactic sourness and raspberries. Medium body, low warmth and creaminess, and high carbonation with a dry finish. It is nice to see some Lost Abbey beers are carbonated.

tdtm82 (1700) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle; home. Aroma is raspberries; wood, oak, candi sugar and soda juice. Taste is sour raspberries, raspberry soda, oak, lemon tart, very acidicy rather vinegary. Interesting but not what I had hoped for.
