4.2/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750mL brown glass pry-top champagne bottle. Purchased at Knightly Spirits, OBT, Orlando FL.

Pours super dark for what i was expecting with some thin tan head. Nose is surprisingly tart smelling...didn't know this was funked...smells like rum-soaked raisins and cranberries.

Palate is super tart and very reminiscent of an oude bruin. Acetic acid is prevelant and Brett too. Super tart with lots of dark fruits.

Lovely and delicious. Under-rated and mis-categorized. Should be Wild Ale.

750ml, 2010?
Lost Abbey tulip

A: Pours a murky reddish hued brown color. Tons of carbonation, over carbo. Four fingers off white slightly tan head. Tiny bubbles streaming up sides of glass. The cap had dark brown funky goop on it.

S: Smells like a full on sour beer, more than a Saison. As I have heard, this one has gotten funky over the years. Balsamic vinegar. Tart cherry. Tanic woodiness. Smells of Flanders red.

T: Tip of the tongue is that tart acidic sour tinge. Then in the middle of the palate you get this strange OFF funkiness. Like rancid woodiness. Infection maybe? Not pleasant. There is an almost cocoa like flavor in there. Finish is dry, but some of that funk lingers with you.

M: Medium bodied. Thank god carbonation sort of clears the palate.
