Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

We went back to the well for this one. It is a remix of our classic Veritas 006 aka sangria. We have raspberry and cherry providing the bulk of the fruit texture over a sour yellow base beer. To this we also added some orange peel and freshly zested mandarin orange zest as well. The beer finishes with a nice tannic finish and is truly a refreshing riff on a Lost Abbey classic.

thanks to ruzdud for getting this series of awesomeness, and split with him..Pours pretty much no head, murky mahogany brown color.

Nose is great, tons of acidic berry fruit, sour fruit, berry seed, acid, light tannins, big vinegar, so much raspberry, great sour raspberry.

Taste brings more tart raspberry, earthy and tannic seeded, juicy sweet candied raspberry, a straight up raspberry pie filling, nice sourness ave big acidic bite, mild sweet fruity vinegar, etc. Mild flemmy with acidic bite and tartness, a wine like acid and tannin note, faint orange skin note. Finish is sticky but flemmy, sour raspberry and tannic seed, big acidity, etc.

Mouth is med bod, lighter but decent carb, nice acidic bite and sourness.

Overall very good, so delicious with great fruit, tartness, acidic and tannin notes, delicious and very enjoyable

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a murky walnut hue with a thin head that fades to leave a thin wisp and halo

S - Aromas of acidic vinegar, old vintage raspberry, cherry pit. Loads of acetone, super sour almost burning raspberry. Incredibly aromatic.

T - Taste is raspberry jam, super acid notes, raspberry seed, cherry juice. Loads of acid vinegar. Really good teeth enamel peeling sour. Sticky jam mixed with absurdly tart, nearly stomach turning. Still, this isn't bad at all super delicious and complex.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, on par for the style. Nice acid.

O - Overall this beer was incredible great vintage raspberry notes. Incredible.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Pours a reddish brown with a decent off white head and nice wisping.

Smell - Acidic musty cherries and raspberries. Some brett.

Taste - Cherries are strongest up front with raspberries building behind them. Musty and kinda funky. Nice sourness.

Mouthfeel - Very sour, musty, and dry. Well carbonated.

Overall - Reminds me of Jackie O's Lucile. Intense musty fruit and sourness.
