750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy pale pinkish orange. Nice white head. Gushes slowly in the bottle.

Smell - Musty and acidic. Cherry and acidity. Oaky.

Taste - Cherry. Acetic acid. Musty and oaky. Grainy. Nice sourness, but kinda dirty.

Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Well carbonated. Nice sourness.

Overall - Pretty tasty sour. Not exactly earth shattering, though. (395 characters)

Reviewing the Veritas 012 from The Lost Abbey out of San Marcos, California.

Score: 87

2013 vintage bottle served in a The Lost Abbey teku and enjoyed on 01/12/14.

Appearance: GUSHER ALERT! Pours a slightly pinkish-orange color with a thin layer of head that settles to a ring around the glass. Good lacing, average retention. 4/5

Smell: Cherry, vinegar, funk and buttered popcorn. Some oak and a little brown sugar. This is your classic acidic Lost Abbey nose with a heavy and unpleasant buttered popcorn twist 2/5

Taste: A lot more zesty, tart cherry on the palate than in the nose and virtually no butter. Oak, lite funk, and a dash of lemon. Light vinegar backbone. Finish is acidic cherry vinegar and young funk. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Light plus bodied, good carbonation. Nice zesty sourness, with a little sweetness. Acidic, but not to the degree of an Upland sour. 4/5

Overall: A nice sour cherry beer that has a buttery nose and a hunt of butter in taste. While solid, this is certainly no Cable Car Kriek and it is not worth what it costs even at retail (let alone on the secondary/trade market).

Cost: $40 for a 750 ml bottle. (1,137 characters)
