Nice murky brown/reddish/purple color with very little head/carbonation.
Tart aroma. Tart & sour flavors, but the raspberry comes thorough nicely in the end leaving a slight residual sweetness throughout the finish.
Despite the low carbonation, it feel nice on the mouth and seemed to get more and more sour for me with each sip.
Very very tasty beer. Definitely recommended. dimenhetfield (2554) - , Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Bottle shared with some buddies. Dark ruby color with very little carbonation. Super sour cherry aroma with tons of funk. Flavor is super intense and tart, fruity with hints of cherries and raspberries. A damn fine sour beer. GMCC2181 (1613) - Newark, Delaware, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle from HH22. Thanks tim! Nice pour, light colored roses, pinkish... good head.. Aroma is sour raspberries. Taste this beer is mouth puckering sour... Very enjoyable though. As it warmed up it became a little sweeter but didnt lose its sourness. Light raspberry flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Overall: Good sour brew drabmuh (194) - Maryland, USA - MAY 4, 2011
I had this at EBF but didn’t review it. Got to sample a bottle recently, thanks Brad.
Beer is red to brown and completely hazy. Forms a thin head with tiny and medium bubbles that doesn’t leave any lacing on the glass. Nice carbonation.
Beer has this great raspberry aroma to it. Wonderful smelling. Very tart and lactic with a slight acetic note. Smells amazing.
Beer is thin and smooth. It finishes dry and has a strong tartness in the corners of my mouth. Strongly lactic in the mouth, some acetic character, a very drinkable and wonderful sour overall.

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.

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. beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2011
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 (6372) - 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 (4068) - 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 doesn’t detract from the rest of the beer. Carbonation may be a little high, but it’s hard to complain about that in anything you get from Lost Abbey. Very tart and tasty though.
