UPDATED: JAN 14, 2018 140117. Bottle at home (beergium). Pours hazy reddish amber with s nice head. Aroma raspberry, sour notes, ripe fruit. Tart on the tongue. Nice after taste. Not Bad. bartlebier (4216) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2017
375ml 2011 Vintage kindly decellared by oldmanriver upon Thanksgiving, merci. - - Correctly classified as Sour/Wild, though it aspires to Oud Bruin - the raspberries give it away. - Even if Most of the framboise specifics have faded, the acidic fruitiness in aroma feels organic and not wilfully "sour" as with many US producers: very little lacto, a red berry tartness and mature oak mustiness blend together very well, with a winey meatiness suavely inviting you to take a sip. Age may have laid some milk chocolate underneath the lighthearted WestCoast berry sunshine here, which does it loads of good, helping it attain complexity, and dare I say grandeur. Lost Abbey to my palate makes the best once-Belgian-homage US "wild/sour" ales, and I believe their weapon is restraint and time. Samuel214 (1570) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2017
Flaska från SB, ca 2 år gammal(?). Mörk, kopparröd/brun med litet beiget skum. Mängder av balsamico, hallon, syrliga körsbär, körsbärskärnor, stall, röda vinbär och fat-toner i både doft och smak. Ordentligt bett i syran och tydlig fatkaraktär. Snustorr avslutning med riktigt snygga ektoner och syrliga hallon. Mycket av allt och samtidigt riktigt välbalanserad. Riktigt gott! hivemind (933) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2017
Had on tap with Paul D. at Barcade JC way back during NLCS or WS 2015. Unbelievable sour with rich cherry/raspberry dominating and striking a great balance between tartness, acidity and robust fruitiness. geolgau (544) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - NOV 21, 2017
Aroma is incredibly fresh and fruity, potent and woody. Oak, raspberry, fermented fruit, sour berries, tart, a bit of biscuit. Jesus Christ, this is awesome. Taste is even better, complex and tarty. Sweet, sour, woody. Man, this is dope! That raspberry combined with the oak is divine. Stone cherry, red wine, aceto balsamico. Nice carbonation, integrates well overall. After taste is sweet and fruity, acidic. Holy shit!

Clear, deep crimson colour, with some rose coloured frothing. Strong raspberry aroma, leather, earthy. Taste is very sour and dry, lots of flavour. Medium body, medium carbonation, soft mouthfeel. Very nice.
