The Lost Abbey
California, United States

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.12%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
We went back to the well for this one. It is a remix of our classic Veritas 006 aka sangria. We have raspberry and cherry providing the bulk of the fruit texture over a sour yellow base beer. To this we also added some orange peel and freshly zested mandarin orange zest as well. The beer finishes with a nice tannic finish and is truly a refreshing riff on a Lost Abbey classic.

375ml corked and caged bottle poured into a matching lost abbey teku. The brew appears a clouded brown color with a couple big bubbles across the top that fade quick.

Smells like cherry pits and turpentine. Faint oak as it warms. Overall not very enjoyable.

Tastes acidic with sour cherry, pitted/earthen flavor, raspberry seeds and a hint of turpentine. It gets progressively bitter and acedic as it warms up to the pointbof being undrinkable.

Light body, lighter carbonation. A big disappointment, not enjoyable, expensive drain cleaner.

Unrelenting....raspberry is supremely tart, orange is absent, heavy balsamic and wet oak. Tannins are overwhelming. Gah, this is a chore...very difficult to drink....like drinking shots of vinegar and licking a wet board over and over...and over.

Overbearing and bitter. Kind of a punch in the face

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Pours a reddish brown with a decent off white head and nice wisping.

Smell - Acidic musty cherries and raspberries. Some brett.

Taste - Cherries are strongest up front with raspberries building behind them. Musty and kinda funky. Nice sourness.

Mouthfeel - Very sour, musty, and dry. Well carbonated.

Overall - Reminds me of Jackie O's Lucile. Intense musty fruit and sourness.

375 ml bottle poured into tulips for bottle share. Cloudy red body with a thin foamy tan head that leaves a few rings. Aroma is filled with raspberry juice and orange peel and rounded out by cherry skin and oak. Taste is tart up front with raspberry and cherry leading the way then yielding to light fruity sweetness featuring orange flesh and a bit of woody bitterness on the finish. Medium body, thin texture, lively carbonation, dry tannic finish.
