3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on August 5 at Pizza Port Solana at the special Lost Abbey night. Pours a brown maple syrup color with amber highlights with thin head. Aroma of plum, wood/oak, and a little bit of cherries. Flavor of sour fruit (cherries, lemon). It is initially a little sweet but turns quite tart. Reminded my friend and I a lot of tart cranberries. The Lost and Found loses some of its abbey dubbel characteristics with the barrel aging.

Wow what a pleasant surprise for a Monday afternoon to find this gem still on tap at PP Solana. After a morning of swimming and biking ... Perfect ! Brown reddish hue and thin tan head. Smells of sour fruit. Medium light body. A good nit of carbonation on your tongue. Tart cherry is the predominant flavor present with some mild maltiness. Finish is great. Lighter than Cuvee. Very tasty!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Pizza Port Solana. Dark brown hue with ruby highlights, thin off-white head sustains. Aroma is sweet cherries and light fruits with a hint of lactic sourness. Flavor is excellent balance of lactic sour and sweet dark pitted fruits, finishes tart and puckering. Medium body with modest to prickly carbonation. High drinkability for a sour, the sweet fruity balance could win some new fans of the style while retaining the hardcore elite sourheads!!
