Shared by Chris and reviewed from notes. Poured into a lost abbey tumbler, murky red liquid with a dirty off white head, decent retention. Smell is strong sour raspberries, lemon and lime soda, sugary with a slight bit of maltiness. Taste is pretty intense - big sour raspberry flavor up front, sour lemons, a bit of that trademark Lost Abbey funk, some blueberries, slightly sweet finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a medium carbonation, very acidic, makes it feel like it is coating. Not a bad beer, but the over the top sourness without any kind of balancing could definitley be improved with a bit of oak or more wild yeast flavors and aromas.

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.
