Reviewing the infamous Veritas 007 from The Lost Abbey out of San Marcos, California.

Score: 95

2010 vintage bottle served in a stemmed Cantillon flute and enjoyed on 04/26/14. Review is from iPhone notes.

Appearance: Pours a translucent, vibrant orange color with a finger of fizzy white head that settles to a thin layer. 4.75/5

Smell: Fruit, grape, vinegar and lemon. Light must and funk. 4.5/5

Taste: Tastes just like it smells. Musty, tart grape, a little lemon and a light vinegar character without any big acidic bite. A little grapefruit too and a kiss of oak. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, light bodied -- both appropriate for the style and flavor profile. Has a nice dryness and acidity that help accentuate the tartness, though this beer is not as puckering as an Upland sour. 4.5/5

Overall: Was expecting more funk, but this beer pleasantly under-delivered on the funk character. This was one of my favorite beers from the Veritas series that I have had the opportunity to sample.

Cost: $250 for a 750 ml bottle (secondary market price).

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep hazy orange with no head. A few bubbles and a thin collar. Not a lot else going on.

Smell - Citrus acidity and some grape/white wine like fruits. Oak.

Taste - Quite sour. Light fruits surround the sourness. Some malts. A bit of acetic acid and oak in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Oaky and dry. Low carbonation.

Overall - This has probably lost a lot of complexity over the years. Pretty good right now though.
