Maybe it was the surrounding bottles I tried this with, but I found this beer to be mediocre at best. Some nice sourness, and a bit of peaches. Middle of the road, and definitely not worth the price or trade value. Trade for AC Apricot instead... seriously

Reviewing Veritas 010, a blended sour ale aged in french oak barrels with peaches from The Lost Abbey out of San Marcos, California.

Score: 88

2011 vintage bottle served in a Lost Abbey teku and enjoyed on 07/27/14, alongside Yellow Bus and Fuzzy.


Appearance: Pours a murky peach/yellow-orange color with a thin fizz of head that totally settles. No lacing or retention. 3/5

Smell: Peach vinegar, white wine and oak. Has that traditional American wild ale nose underlying, with a hint of nail polish coming through as it warms up. 3.25/5

Taste: Nice tartness and mild vinegar character, with a balanced acidity that is not too intense. A little wine flavor on the finish. Tastes like Upland Peach, but milder and better balanced. Ample and lasting peach flavor, though it is not a "fresh peach" flavor. Much smoother than the nose led on 4.25/5


Mouthfeel: Light bodied, modest acidity. Good carbonation. A little underlying sweetness, good tartness and a dry finish. 4/5

Overall: Thankfully, this tasted better than it smelled. If you liked Upland Peach, then I imagine that you would likely enjoy this beer. Solid overall, but nowhere near the quality of Yellow Bus (or Fuzzy, for that matter). It is even less like Yellow Bus than Veritas 012 is unlike Cable Car Kriek in my opinion.

Cost: $40 for a 750 ml bottle.

On tap at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with malt, peach, nectarine, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour and tart peach and apricot flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great aromas making for a tasty and super easy to drink beer.

Thanks to whoever brought this one to the Hill Farmstead CW pre share.

A - Pours a hazy golden peach color with a nice one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving small trails of lace on the glass.

S - Smells of fresh peaches, mild funk, woody oak, lactic sourness, some basement must and a bit of sweet pale malt. Lots of funky peaches, love it.

T - Starts off with fresh picked ripe peaches slowly giving way to oak tannins, basement must, light funk, greek yogurt, white wine and a bit of sweetness from the malt. Finish is quite dry, lingering long after the finish. Lots of flavor, just with the peaches came through a bit more.

M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, tart feel with a nice dry ending. Quite easy drinking all things considered.

O - This was an awesome peach sour. It was going up against a bunch of other Peach and Stone Fruit sours and really held its own, it was in my top three. I would love to have this again in the future.
