Notes/Commercial Description:
This beers base starts out as "The Mother of all Beers" quadruple. It is then aged in oak barrels with lots of cherries. The cherries and the natural bacteria in the barrels from previous batches give the beer a tart sourness.

One tap at Capone's during Philly beer week. Served in a 5.5 oz nonic glass.

Appearance: Pours brown with hints of red. Small head dissipates relatively quickly.

Smell: Sour cherry, lacto, some slight malt sweetness cuts through that sourness as well.

Taste: Same sour cherry and lactic acid character that dominated the aroma. Also accompanied by a medium high sourness. Slight sweet caramel presence comes through as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Medium levels of lively carbonation. Yes you read that right. It's carbed! (I realize carbonation in this beer is a bottle issue. Lighten up)

Overall: Another really good one from Lost Abbey. I can't speak for the bottled version, but on tap this was excellent. Really glad I finally got to try it.
