Track #5. 12.7oz bottle. No date.
Look: Murky brown, no head
Smell: Raspberries, strawberry preserves, estery, musty, oaky
Taste: Tart attack, raspberries, sour cherries, okay, tannic, lemony, fruity, jammy, pithy, earth, hay, bone dry
Very fruited Lambic-like. Aroma and flavor are solid. Not much to look at and it lacks effervescence, but I dig it.

12.7 brown caged and corked bottle, no freshness date.
Muddled rusty burgundy hue, no head ... not much for lace either. Strawberries, raspberries, raw honey, tart, musty, parsnips, and funk make for a pretty complex and at least interesting nose. Very sour, both raspberry and cherry are present. Lots of fresh oak, estery, faint cracker maltiness, slightly sweet and very sour. Wood dryness envelopes the finish.
Love it or hate it aspects to this brew, smell and taste ... I am all for it. Look and feel, not much of a fan. Very lambic-like. Each sip is a bit more fun to take on.

The Lost Abbey
San Marcos, CA
This pours just slightly darker than the color of smashed raspberries, with a 2+ fingers dark khaki colored head that lasts and lasts. This leaves messy lacing down the glass. A spectacularly gorgeous beer. The dark crimson raspberry color of this beer is stunning. It's gorgeous.
A powerful, engrossing, and delightful aroma. Both Red Poppy and Framboise Amarosa shine through here. There's tons of authentic, bright, juicy raspberries along with good amounts of red wine, earth, dirt, and oak character. Fantastic.
The flavor too shines, and is nearly perfect. I wanted to give this a perfect score. This is a wonderful combination of juicy raspberries, cherries, oak, red wine, earth, and oak, with lots of strong sour character. At colder temperatures, there's just the slightest bit of sulfur/plastic on the finish, but it disappears as the beer warms. That being said, I couldn't quite give it a perfect score.
Medium bodied with high carbonation. Finally, Lost Abbey nails this department in one of their one-off beers!
Simply wonderful. This ranks with Duck Duck Gooze and Cable Car as the best Lost Abbey sours I've had.

Bottle poured into a GI tulip. Part of NWI tasting New Year's Day
A - Dark, raspberry color. Looks like juice with a slight haze to it. There is lots of carbonation but no head
S - Big, jammy raspberries make up the most of this nose. You also get a slight oak and lemon as well. This is one of the noses that you just want to keep smelling because it is great
T - Tart lemon and light oak come up first. There is slight vinegar and then lots of raspberries that come in as well. This finish is slightly tart with even more raspberry jam coming in the finish
MF - Medium body with lots of carbonation. Finish is dry with the oak and lemon
O - This is a great beer and the best track I've had to date. There is just so much raspberry flavor. The one great thing is that you get both tartness and jammy sweetness from the raspberries. There is a lot of flavor, nice complexity, and great nose

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Murky red. Decent off-white head. Nice collar and wispy surface.
Smell - Tons of raspberry. Cherry is secondary. Musty and acidic.
Taste - So much raspberry. Cherry is still secondary. Musty and jammy. Very tart. Oaky finish.
Mouthfeel - Strong, clean sourness. Well carbonated and dry.
Overall - Excellent. More raspberry than Framboise de Amorosa from what I remember.

In house only bottle at Lost Abbey tasting room.
Appearance. Pours a deep red-orange-brown with a pale pink-tan head.
Smell. Dark berries and cherries, some nice musty funk and a little raspberry vinegar.
Taste. Sour cherry and raspberry, quite sour and a little tart, some wood and funk that lingers. Pretty awesome stuff.
Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, strong carbonation.
Overall. Amazing sour, one of the best I've had.

Pours a muddy red color with a fleeting white head. The nose is outstanding. Bright, jammy acidic fruit with a ton of raspberry and cherry. The barrel brings a big vanilla note. Similar on the palate, huge juicy fruit flavors with slightly more raspberry than cherry. Nice vanilla and oak notes in the finish. A phenomenal fruit sour.

Huge thanks to ehammond1 for making this happen. Served in a Lost Abbey teku.
Pours a light brown with a mild reddish hue to it. The initial pink-hued head fades pretrty quickly into a thin collar around the edges of the glass.
The nose has some cherry and a bit of raspberry. Neither is nearly as strong as the fruit character from Box Set Track #7. Some additional earthiness in the background. Acidity is mostly lactic with just a very mild touch of acetic.
Flavor is earthy and mildly sour. Quite a bit of cherry skin. Moderate raspberry character underneath. Faint hints of black raspberry. Could use a bit more depth.
Mouthfeel is light-medium with an appropriate amount of acidity and carbonation. Very dry finish. Ever so slight tannins.
Again, very nice, but nothing out of control.
