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.
Serving type: on-tap

4.26/5 rDev +1.2%

Poured from a 350mL bottle into a Koningshoven chalice.
A: No head at all. The color is dark plum and is not transparent. Interesting. Remarkably purplish.
S: Gently tart. Rich and fruity. Heady and pleasant.
T/M: Oh wow. Mindbendingly puckery. Ridiculously tart and acidic, especially for a beer otherwise so mellow and sweet. This is an amazing beer, that is likely to be a little too sour for many. Very fruit forward, very tasty.
O: The sourness can almost hide the alcohol content, but the telltale sticky sweetness on the endtaste conveys all the booziness of a good brandy. Would love to drink again.
