750ml bottle, 2012 vintage, poured into a Lost Abbey sinners teku glass, shared with friends.

The beer pours a cloudy apricot color with a soapy white head that recedes quickly, leaving a few bubbles atop the beer, yielding a light amount of sticky lace. The aroma is lovely, lots of fresh, fleshy fruit, white grapes, light oak, pale grain, light funk and a healthy dose of acetic sour character. Fleshy fruit jumps out on the tongue, apricot, peach, nectarine with a great layer of tart white grape, chewy oak, funk with some light straw and just enough acetic sour quality to really pucker me up. The body is lively with high carbonation that really dances on the tongue. It coats the mouth well and has a lightly creamy finish with a little pickle as it goes down.

Verdict: A remarkable sour from The Lost Abbey that rivals anything being made in America currently. The fruit characteristics of this beer are remarkable and while it lacks slightly in funk and barnyard character, it is really a well rounded and balanced sour.
