The Lost Abbey
California, United States
lostabbey.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Notes / Commercial Description:
Once upon a time it was the most award winning Pizza Port beer of all time. Now it has found a new home at The Lost Abbey.

A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with.

750 ml bottle poured into a Teku glass

A: Pours dark brown with a tan colored head, no head retention, no carbonation, very nice ruby brown edges when held up to the light.

A: Massive amounts of cherry aromas, sour tartness, oak, funk, touch of light brown sugar sweetness, alcohol is not present on the aroma, smells very promising.

T: Cherry tartness up front, touch of light funk, sourness, some oak, very balanced, finish has a lot of cherries as if the flavor and dryness is sticking to my gums, some caramel, brown sugar sweetness as well, a world class beer.

M: Medium bodied with a very dry finish, low carbonation.

O: Very impressed with this beer, lots of cherries in the aroma and flavor, however, it's balanced with oak, sour, and tart notes as well a slight touch of brown sugar sweetness, it's amazingly drinkable for the ABV, definitely worth the money, looking forward to see how well my other bottles age.
