Draft. Sampled at Monk’s Cafe Lost Abbey Dinner 2/6/07. I read about this beer in Tomme’s blog last month, and I couldn’t wait to sample it. This is a mix of three beers, including Cuvee de Tomme brewed in 2003.

The beer poured cloudy dark brown with a moderate sized off-white head. The aroma was beautiful - red wine tannins, as well as the tart qualities of a flemish sour. Tartness comes through on the initial sip. Very vinous. Fruit (cherries) and wood on the following sips. A bit of citrus character hidden in the background. Seemed like a flemish sour mixed with red wine. Fantastic!

Veritas 001 is the first release of a new series that will be released from Lost Abbey. From the Lost Abbey website the 001 is a blend of three beers including the Cuvee de Tomme 2004. This was sampled on tap at the Monk's Cafe Lost Abbey Dinner.

The beer poured a deep redish/brown color with a slight but tanish/red right around the glass. The nose was complex with a tart aroma complimented by a wine grape feel, maybe cherry on the nose as well. The taste was tart, a bit funky and definitely had some vinous qualities to it. As I let it sit a little longer it warmed and brought out some dried fruit and even a bit of grapefruit on the tongue. All this making for a somewhat full bodied beer that was just enjoyable. If I am lucky enough to run across this again in the future I would surely snatch some up. I can't wait to see what Tomme creates for future Veritas brews.
