Consumed with all ten Veritas beers on April 14, 2012. Shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael.

The beer is yellow with pink highlights, and mildly hazy with a thin, fleeting head. The aroma offers grapes, assorted tart fruit, oak, funk. Another winner from The Lost Abbey. This beer is extremely flavorful and brings a powerful and aggressive tartness in the finish. Wow, this flight of Veritas (004-007) is pretty mind blowing. Highly recommended. I would love to have this again.

On tap at City Beer Store. $7 for a 7 oz pour served in a flute.

A - ruby red grapefruit with a slight haziness.

S - minimal funkiness with a burst of sharp citrus.

T - can't really ask more out of an American Wild Ale. First your taste buds are hit with a tinge of vinegar followed by sour orange-grapefruit blast. There are some raspberry flavors that finish up the sip quite nicely.

M - medium carbonation that coats the tongue but doesn't linger. Finishes mouth-puckeringly and lingers just enough for you to want more.

O - glad to get to try this and wish I had a bottle or two of this gem.

On tap at City Beer Store. Pours a pinkish amber with no head, just a couple of bubbles at the edge of the glass. The aroma has a lot of funky brett, with some lemon, raspberry, grape skin, some lactic, cherry, and a bit of oak. The taste is quite tart with lemon, raspberry, a lot of funky brett, and some grape skin. The finish is dry, oaky, and funky with a decent amount of astringency. Light body with low carbonation. It could have used more carbonation, but it was still quite a great beer.

Big thanks to heyohhh for the share. Now this is a hell of a brew. The pour is slightly pinkish, efferevescent, translucent, and results in vague white wisps atop the brew; good-looking. The aroma immediately announces some funk, and fruity acidity, in the most delicious way possible. Notes of tart cherry and sharp tannin are in the nose, along with some red wine-like notes. As it airs out, I appreciate the aroma more like some sort of tart berry melange. Flavor-wise, it is tart from the get-go, and never lets up. Really, this is just about perfect for me. Notes of fruit are implied, but not overly so; nuances include raspberry, cherry, cranberry, currant, tart-tannic red grape, all expressed in a minor and partial sense. The funk and acidity in this beer are evocative of Cantillons such as Fou Foune and 100% Kriek Lambic, which is to say it is a potent, musty, wild and delectable thing. Overall, I like this brew just about as much as I can like a brew.
