750 ml bottle generously shared by ipa247. Big thanks to Jeff for opening up this rarity. Pours a cloudy amber with almost no head. The aroma is sweet raspberry, a bit of cherry, some funky mustiness, and a hint of honey. The taste is quite tart with some sweetness. Lots of raspberries, smarties, and some cherry. The finish is tart and acidic with more raspberries and a bit of astringency. Medium body. This was very sour, but very drinkable for how sour it was. Quite nice.

Thanks for sharing, ipa247! Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a murky ruddy brown tea color with a short-lived head that disappeared into nothing.
S: Acidic raspberry all the way. I get hints of citrus and maybe some other fruits, but raspberries definitely dominate.
T: Extremely acidic with dominant flavors of raspberries just like the nose, including both fresh fruit and preserves. Lingering sourness in the finish, puckering aftertaste.
M: Acidic but not harsh, some acetone, medium body, smooth mouth for how acidic it is.
O: This rivals some of the great Belgian framboises. Perhaps my favorite Veritas I’ve had to date. Thanks for your generosity Jeff.

I was lucky enough to try this at our Lost Abbey tasting. Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a layer of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass.

Smell: Raspberry jam along with some vinegary sourness. It reminds me a bit of framboos. Sweet and quite fruity.

Taste: There is a very strong vinegar note that hits you right off the bat. The sourness is rather sharp. Some raspberry tartness with a slight sweetness after you peel back a few layers. The finish is incredibly sour.

Mouthfeel: The body is on the thin side of medium with foamy, tingly carbonation and a finish that is a bit slick.

Overall: The smell was just wonderful. I enjoyed the taste, but it was slightly abrasive. I would love to have this again given the chance.
