Got this bottle from GREGER. Thanks again for this trade. Poured from 22oz bottle.
A- Pours a hazy deep golden straw color. Nice one finger white head that stays for a short while. Light lacing the entire time with this beer.
S- This is a interesting beer to say the least. It's funky but not overly so. Nice winelike vinegar notes come and gone in the nose with this that battle with a citrusy (lemon) overtone the entire nose. There is a light oak smell in this that mingles well with a musty presence. Not overly funky but still good nevertheless.
T- This is where the beer really shines I think. The acidic quality to this is what I think when I try sours. Very nice citrus upfront to this with lemons coming to mind right off the bat. There is a very wine vinegar like undertone in the back end that makes me pucker. Nice oak flavor in the middle of this as well. Everything compliments each other well in this.
M- Lighter mouthfeel. Carbonation is good with the style. Lost Abbey always has good carbonation with everything I have had from them. Citrus tones and vinegar notes stay on the palate and in the aftertaste. Drying finish with this beer.
D- Very nice drinkability to this one. I was very impressed with this beer. Strike another one up for Lost Abbey. If you get a chance to try this I would not pass it up!

This beer is amazing. The appearance was golden and brite, slight orange, crisp with very little head only brief lacing that didnt linger at all. Carb bubbles were present throughout.
The smell was sweet & sour with a good funk, slight notes of tart apple and pear. I thought after smelling that this was going to disappoint honestly.
The taste though, wow. Tart apple, granny smith, bright farmyard funk, the taste lingered as well and was slight bile lemon and finished with sweet spice notes and some orange grapefruity effervescence. This taste for me was perfection. Even as I cherished the last couple sips that had warmed it was even more complex with some malt, bread, salt and dank balanced funk. So good, better on the cold side but I cherished it all through the pour...
The mouth was crisp and dry, the tart wets the cheeks afterwards and it lingered in a good way
I really was close to a 5 on this beer, its definitely in my top 5 and left me craving desperately for another
