Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xlperro on 12-14-2006

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.

Still on draft at Monk's in Philly a couple of days after their Lost Abbey dinner. Awesome sour. So glad I tried some.

Almost like wine, minimal carb.
Great big cherry smell, damn!!!
Damn lots of matured cherry in taste, no acid or vinegar!! Def wood in taste, not a secret. Beer is big!
Maybe missing a few bubbles but I dont care, this is fantastic!!
Best beer I can think of for lees then $15, I think I paid $13 @ Wholefoods on Friday sale...
Not sure how people get this Quad confused, what other master brewer can cherry out a quad like this??

On draft at stone liberty station. 12%
Appearance: opaic dark brown with red highlights when held to the light. Initially had a big tan head that quickly dissipated to a thin wispy layer.
Nose: huge cherries and brett. I was expecting a typical quad but this smells of a great sour.
Taste: this beer has everything. It starts with a medium sourness on the tongue with loads of cherries and raisins. Then there is a sweet caramel sugar I usually associate with big Belgium quads. Finally there is a dry chocolaty, roasty flavor bursting through at the end.
Mouth: high carbonation balanced with the mouth puckering sour is perfect. The dark sugar mixtures balance the massive 12 % alcohol perfectly.
Overall: one of the best beers I've ever had. There is a combination of sour and aged old ale / quad I've never come across before.
