COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once upon a time it was the most award winning Pizza Port beer of all time. Now it has found a new home at The Lost Abbey. A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with. One of the most complex and unique beers we make each year.

copestx (227) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2017
Draft at The Confessional. Brownish/red. Raisins, oak, bourbon qualities, dark fruits, sour cherries, nice and tart. A very different take on the style. Lovely.

Draft at the brewery. Pours dark nut brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like tart fruits, red wine, nice acidity, earthy and woody malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like tart fruits, acidic, grassy malt, red wine, earth, and wood.

Sparf (283) - SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2017
Balsamvinäger-syrlig, romrussin, katrinplommon, vinös, aning ekfat och vaniljkola. Mörkt brunrödaktig kulör, inget skum. Mjukt sötsyrlig smak med dragning åt körsbär, vin och många olika bär. Här finns en träaktig kärvhet som är lite otrevlig men i övrigt en mycket intressant, komplex komposition. Fyllig, alkoholstark och med en mycket låg kolsyrenivå. Eftersmaken är lång och syrlig.

3.5
bigtaster (979) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2017
From small bottle, vintage 2011 into small taster glass. No head, nose is vinegar, some cherries dark roasted wheat. Very sour, aged too long, very minimal carbonation, slight sweetness. Definitely past it’s prime, need to get hands on a bottle in its prime.

Jashiu (1315) - Gdañsk, POLAND - DEC 22, 2016
375ml bottle on a bottle share @Alebrowar Gdynia
Perfect aroma of tart red fruit and red wina scents.
Looking a bit muddy and cherry in color.
Taste is dominated by wine and fruitiness.
Surprisingly drinkable, more like a very good wine than beer. Alcohol superbly hidden.

TychoJames (1311) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 18, 2016
Flaska systembolaget. Brunröd vätska. Syrlig doft av jord, kärsbär, russin och lite knäck. Syrlig även i smaken med en mustig unkenhet. Jästa röda bär. Viss sötma med fat i eftersmaken

rood (92) - Borgerhout, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2016
Aroma is vinegar, aceto balsamico, nutty, nutmeg, grapes, ethyl acetate, cherries and bourbon. Taste is more of the same, lovely Sour. Equal to Oerbier Reserva or Aardmonnik. Kudos Tomme!! Thanks for sharing berntholer!!

3.8
Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2016
375ml bottle. Opaque, dark brown colour, no head. Spicy yeasty, vinous, fruity aroma, notes of morello cherry, blue grapes, raisin, hints of balsamico, a touch of oak and vanilla, raspberry flavoured dark chocolate. Taste is sour, vinous, tangy, fruity, notes of vinegar, morello cherry, blue grapes, plum, hints of raspberry, dry, oaky overtones; lasting, dry oaky finish, tart freshness compensates for flat carbonation.
