Lost Abbey oli erään viikonlopun maistelusession ensimmäinen olut ja odotukset olivat korkealla. Muistiinpanoja kaivellessa löytyy seuraavaa: Pullo avautuu todella äänekkäästi poksahtaen. Oluessa on punainen väri ja todella runsas, punertava, vaalea vaahto. Tuoksussa on runsaasti marjaisia vivahteita. Vadelmia ja mansikkahilloa. Maultaan olut on todella kirpeä marjapommi. Maku suorastaan elää suussa. Hiiva tulee esille. Neste muuttuu tummemmaksi ja sakeammaksi, kun oluen loput kaatuvat lasiin. Nyt myös huomaan jotain oransseja täpliä ainakin vaahdossa. Tämä on vähän kuin Rodenbach Grand Crun ja gueuzen sekoitus. Todella hapan ja hyvä olut. Ei todellakaan pettänyt odotuksia. playitbybeer (118) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2011
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.

Flaske: Rødlig øl med et forsvindende skumhoved. Duft af sure hindbær og eddike. Smagen er domineret af balsamico eddike, men derefter går den over i sure hindbær og en smule lakrids. Dejlig øl. bierkoning (13243) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2011
Corked bottle from bierkompass.de. Pinkish purple color. Oak, lemon and raspberry in the aroma. Dry and oaky flavor, sour with lemon and raspberry. Brett kicking in, some leathery notes. Good, comparable to a good sour framboise. jtclockwork (16443) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours muddy raspberry brown. Nose of tart funk, raspberry and chocolate covered cherries in a basement. Lots of basement funk. Taste of very tart raspberry, cherry funk and grassy earth.

Bottle shared with LeopoldStoch. Pours a hazy deep red color with medium pinkish head. The aroma is ridiculously full of raspberries. It reminded me of opening a jar of jam. The taste was that of, surprise, raspberries as well as sweet malts, some oak, and a fantastic tartness. This beer was surprisingly tart and the finish is wonderfully dry. This would be a great beer to tear down someones idea of what a beer can be and would definitely sway some wine drinkers to the dark side.

Shared at Pre Sex. Pours a murky pink with no head. Nose shows lots fruit and berry with a mildly acetic and a caramel sweetness. Flavor has a nice sweetness balanced by a mild tartness and lots of raspberry and fruity esters. Mild vitamin/chalky character. Palate is mellow with a low carbonation and relaxed acidity.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2016 Re-rate 12/16: Bottle shared at a tasting at Tom L’s 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 I’ve 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
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.
