Thanks to Skuter for sharing this one at the Revenge Of Instant Replay bottleshare held at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.

Bottle # 337.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, fruit, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour malt, grain, and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a nice balance between the sour and fruit aspects all around.

The beer is murky orange with white, foamy head. The aroma offers peach, nectarine, stone fruit, classic Lost Abbey funk. The flavor follows suit, finishing with an aggressive puckering sensation in the jaws and cheeks. Moderate acetic character with lots of fruity notes throughout. Delicious.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange body. Nice white head and a medium collar.

Smell - Very intense acidity, but it still has a nice aroma of peaches and nectarines. Light grain.

Taste - Really sour. Masks some flavors. Wood is strong, as are the stone fruit flavors. The sourness is most intense up front and then mellows. Grainy finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. The sourness doesn't seem as intense as it warms, but it still overwhelms the flavors.

Overall - Nice fruit. It's not very complex, but it's tasty.

Thanks ineedbeer. Pours a brownish dusky red color. Darker than expected. Quite cloudy. Little to no head. Absolutely no bubbles after a minute. A bit of chunkiness. Aroma is tart raspberries, underripe stone fruit, vinegar. Fairly acetic. Some vanilla. There's some peach/nectarine sweetness but it's mild. Big acetic note in the taste. Quite sour. Stone fruit, berries and grapes, all very tart. Nothing is terribly well defined. Some malt character knocking around. Quite dry. Tons of pucker. Tiny bit of body. I wish there was more fruit character to this beer. The acetic sourness dominates for me. Still, it's good, just not great.
