I’ve bought several bottles of 2012 Deliverance and so far, two in a row taste sour and smell like wine. The first bottle was flat. I bought 5 bottles at $17 a bottle.
Anyone else having this issue?

Stay away from Deliverance, Angel’s share and any other small bottle variety that isn’t meant to be a sour from Lost Abbey. They have huge issues with Carbonation and infections. TooMany Beers had the same issue with some of their stuff earlier this year.

Yea he told me about that. I basically feel like I got robbed. Never buying another bottle. I followed that with a Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout and what a difference!

I am still trying to figure out how Deliverance and Angels Share can maintain 100 ratings with such a "huge" infection problem. I have bottles of both, and I admit I haven’t tried either yet, but I am watching 4+ ratings show up consistently for each and wondering how widespread the problem can be.

I gave it a good rating after I had it on tap which was the first time. I think I’ll go back and change it.

Great band name.

When its good, its very good. When its not, its horrendous. People tend to trade their bad ratings in for good ones/give the brewer the benefit of the doubt overall as well

I have 3 bottles left that I will crack open tonight and pour out if they’re bad. Bye bye $90 altogether. FML

Call the brewery. I had the same problem with a bottle of Angels Share being flat and infected. They sent me some replacement bottles (red poppy, amorosa and older viscosity as well as some glasses) and a box to return the two unopened bottles I still had.

Gwen (GCONLEY) from Lost Abeey commented in a thread about this a few months ago when this was happening.

They deny any infection or carbonation problems.

Whatever, they replaced the beers without too many hassles.

Hope this helps!

Remember when Bonds, Mcguire, Sosa denied steroids? All they did was hit homeruns with a blemish free track record.
