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

Track 12 is a non fruited sour ale. It is a blend of three base beers (Avant Garde, a previously unreleased sour brown ale, and Gift of the Magi). There were two barrels of Avant Garde, one oak barrel of the sour brown, and a splash of the Magi in the final blend.

A - Dark orange with red highlights

S - Tart raspberry, lemon, and lactic acid 4.5

T - Light tart fruit with nice blue cheese funk. Definitely was much funkier than it smells . The funk also lingers on in the finish.

M - Medium body with light carbonation to it. Dry finish

O - Solid funky yet not too tart beer.

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

Appearance - Murky orange. Thin collar and a couple bubbles.

Smell - Fruity, like peaches. Acidic and bready malts.

Taste - Bretty sourness. Lots of fruit flavors and grainy malts. Less exciting than the smell.

Mouthfeel - Bretty and dry. A little heavy.

Overall - Quality flavors, but it's not really intense. I want a more intense flavor.

Hazy orange-amber with decent head formation and carbonation (impressive). Lot of brett on the nose, barnyard and a touch of plastic and sulfur. Little bit of peach and pineapple. Palate is oaky with stonefruit, pineapple and funk. Lot of drying brett and oak. A bit phenolic. This is pretty good, but Track 3 was superior despite its lack of carbonation.

Bottle at Lost Abbey into stemware.

A: Dark reddish orange with a finger of beige froth. Nice color.

S: Lactic with notes of aged blue cheese, oak, lemon, and red wine. A touch of plastic with some horsey funk. Firm lemon presence accompanies a blend of earth and leather. Cherry, grape, and plum are evident.

T: Dark fruits with leather and earth. Cherry, plum, and grape meld with oak. Restrained acetic acidity with some citric and brackish notes. A hint chlorine. Drying tannic finish.

M: Lower medium body with upper medium carbonation. Dry and sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: The aroma and mouthfeel are my favorite aspects of this beer. I think with a little time the flavor will further develop so I'll probably cellar my bottle for a while before opening it.
