Enjoyed at GABF 2016... I wasn't impressed but I was well aware of the hype before obtaining a pour. Maybe it fell short due to the acclaim.

One rating down due to supply and demand. No distribution but in-house consumption only. I managed to be one of the luckiest to be able to take one home. Best one so far.

2016 vintage. Had on draft at Lost Abbey 10th Anniversary party, May 21, 2016. Writing review on notes I took that day.
L: golden color, ever-so-slightly cloudy, big white foamy head
S: somewhat muted at first since I was drinking this outside, but as it warmed and I went inside the aroma really shined through. Lemon, peach, apricot, pear, funk minor white grape. The funkiness was singular and one I had never smelled before. Very enjoyable aroma!
T: Taste was great also. Lemon and stone fruits were the headliners here along with that uncommon and nice funkiness.
F: Mouthburst was subtle and not sharp at the end, so it was nice-drinking throughout.
O: It was difficult to finally grab this, especially without having to pay the Toronado prices, but it was well worth the effort! One of my all time favorite sours, easily! Very high class!

Right in line with some of the best sours out there. Great taste and feel, but didn't get an outstanding smell from it. Nothing bad, just didn't blow my socks off. Overall, very glad to have tried this one out.
