Pours an amber apple cider color with an antique white head. Mouthfeel is thin, watery, finishing dry. Very tart flavor of dusty fermented sour apple. This is not my style, but seems average to just above average for this style. It seems to compete with some of the more renowned sours from NoCal.

Double cherry was on tap at the brewery during the V009 release. Reviewed from notes. Served in a taster glass.

Pour is light reddish brown with reasonably high amount of head. Bubbles are very large and porous similar to regular red poppy.

Smell is vinegar, red wine, and some brown sugar. The cherries come through in a nice brightness.

Tastes very sour. Tons of cherry and vinegar. The flavor profile is similar to regular red poppy, but the vinegar is toned down and the fruit is turned up. Tastes much better, but also much more sour than the regular version.

Body is a little thin, and carbonation is medium high.

Overall, a good, and very sour beer. The lower acetobacter was a huge improvement over regular poppy. This one is also good reasonably cold, which I can't say for the standard.

A: a murky, light brown

S: cherries are definitely there!

T: yes, the cherries, but also brown sugar and some kind of spice. When I mentioned cinnamon, Tomme neither confirmed nor denied. The mellow tartness let all those other flavors shine.

M: great level of carbonation

D: highly quaffable, this is a great Lost Abbey treat
