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.

3.94/5  rDev -1.5%

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.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with a fruity flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it seems slightly unrefined in my opinion.
