look: 2 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Served in a white wine glass from a sixtel at Nodding Head.

A - this is one ugly beer. A murky, cloudy dark reddish-brown, poured with a finger or so of brown-ish head that from the top looked like algae on a pond. Very uninviting.

S - Take a whiff, though, and it significantly brightens the experience. Lots of raspberries, along with the sour, funky brown ale base that Lost Abbey does so many fantastic things with.

T - Wow. When asked how he got so much raspberry flavor into this beer, Tomme deadpanned "I added a lot of raspberries." Intense raspberry flavor throughout every sip, along with moderate sourness, oak, and caramel maltiness. The raspberry overload was neither cloying, nor too sweet, nor too tart. All of the flavors work in harmony, and nothing overpowers despite the intense fruit presence. Amazing.

M - Not too thick, not too thin, this stays on your palate long enough to deliver, but doesn't stick around forever, inviting another sip. The sourness does not overwhelm.

O - this is just about the best fruit beer I've ever had, and certainly the best American-made fruited sour I've tried. Simply a masterpiece.

On tap at Capone's during Philly beer week. Served in a 5.5 oz nonic glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark red with some hints of brown and about a finger of a light pinkish head.

Smell: Big fruit character. Raspberry, hugely jammy, strawberry, fruit leather, slight breadiness, and lacto.

Taste: Raspberry, sour cherry, fruit leather and lacto. Underlying maltiness is present as well.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft creamy mouthfeel. Medium levels of gentle carbonation. No alcohol presence. Really nice.

Overall: Another excellent one from Lost Abbey. I had this side by side with Duck Duck Gooze and Cuvée de Tomme and this may have been my favorite of the bunch. Definitely worth seeking out if you can get your hands on it.

Serving type: on-tap
