Sampled at EBF. Ratebeer won't recognize this entry, so I am rating it here. Pours a hazy, copper amber with some creamy white head. Nose of vinegar, strawberry, malt, raspberry. Flavor is the same, lots of berry, some vinegar, some malt, light lactic. Full, tart finish.

Pours an amber apple cider color with an antique white head. Mouthfeel is thin, watery, finishing dry. Very tart flavor of dusty fermented sour apple. This is not my style, but seems average to just above average for this style. It seems to compete with some of the more renowned sours from NoCal.

Tap at Armsby Abbey for Lost Abbey takeover.

Pours a light fizzy head, dark murky brown color.

Nose has dark fruits, tart fruits, a sour mash malt, lots of fruit, hint of caramel, brown malts, etc.

Taste is super fruity, lots of tart cherry, sour malt, brown malt, almost but not quite cough syrupy like, plenty of balotin cherry, sweet malts and syrup, bit of acidity, not flemmy either, dry finish, super tart as well, more cherry and a bit of fruit lingering. Fairly sweet overall.

Mouth is med to lighter bodied, good carb.

Overall not bad, decent flanders, nice fruits, malts, sour and tart flavors, not really acidic or flemmy, fairly drinkable.
