Bottle (2011)

5th Annual Barrel Night
The Lost Abbey
San Marcos, CA

A bright, vibrant, and glowing orange with a bit of murky haziness running throughout. The head is a very thin off-white that leaves spots of lace down the glass.

The aroma is a combination of fresh peaches, stinging sourness, and a bit of sulfur and brick.

The flavor succeeds more aptly than the aroma. The sulfur notes have disappeared, and what's left is a well-balanced sour with tons of fresh peach flavor, and a bit of hay, grass, and earth.

Medium bodied with low to moderate carbonation.

A delicious, well balanced, peach sour. Nearly perfect.

Excellent release. Poured at the Lost Abbey Barrel Night into an LA tulip glass - dark orange yellow, little carb. Not sticky.

V10 accomplishes a difficult task. The key elements are strong and satisfying without becoming overpowering at any point - with the first snort n' sip the peach scent and flavor are distinctive without citric bitterness. The end comes on sour, but only moderately. It's far from the blanket of tartness that a good vinegar-strength lambic can throw over your tongue.

In the middle there's a note that I don't recognize. Something in the middle between funk and almost a chocolate flavor. A touch of wood, maybe? Not sure, but it's a nice transition between the fruit and sour.

To sum, a delicate and restrained beer but with distinctive flavors that last on the tongue. Very happy with this one.
