375ml bottle poured into my Lost Abbey stemware...
Pours a muddy dirty dishwater brown with some plum around the edges...very hazy with bits of fruit and/or yeast dancing on the bottom of the glass. Tons of soft and airy light rose colored head forms and slowly recedes, leaving some lacing behind...
Loads of tart raspberries (and other berries in general) ambush the nose...almost has an artificial raspberry syrup smell to it, that's how strong the raspberries are...a bit of an oaky/earthy undertone, but this one is all about the tart/sour raspberries...
Very tart to start, the raspberries really show through. Lemony acidity and very astringent. Puckering, more so than a lot of other sours I have tried recently (been on a HUGE sour kick). The beer has a nice musty and funky, earthy characteristic when you swish it around in your mouth a bit. Finishes dry and woody...complex, balanced, yet aggressively sour, very nice...
Medium bodied with good carbonation, although the carb quickly goes away when it sits in your mouth for a second making the beer somewhat smooth and creamy...finishes dry...
Very happy with this beer from Lost Abbey, while overall not being a huge Lost Abbey fan. This one was spot on in all categories (good have looked a bit better though)...

Pours an odd muddy river brownish red. Champagne head. Nose is raspberries, muscadine grapes, and a little funk. Taste is raspberry, sour cherry, and lots of delicious. Dry, carbonated body, again not unlike a champagne. This is one of my favorite sours that actually tastes like the fruit it claims. Wife picked this one out and she gets 2 thumbs up.
