BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States
lostabbey.com

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.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a hazy red with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with raspberry and cherry aromas. Taste is much the same with a nice fruity flavor on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Cloudy crimson hued body with a thin but lasting head. Really nice nose, a balanced mix of orange and cherry with a dash of raspberry and red wine. Nice spiciness from the oak. Palate is very citrusy with great cherry, raspberry and red wine flavors. Nice full body, strongly acidic but clean. Another excellent track.

Huge thanks to ehammond1 for making this happen. Served in a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Pours blood red with some violet highlights. Good initial head fading somewhat quickly into a few rings of lace. Pink tint to the head and lacing. Collar as it goes down. Cherry wins the battle over raspberry here.

The nose is full of ripe raspberry with cherry coming in underneath. Some vinous notes along with a faint earthiness. Moderate acidity that is very reminiscent of Framboise de Amorosa. A bit of cherry skin, but the raspberry pulls through much more.

The flavor has some initial strong cherry and pit, plus a good dose of skin. The raspberry quickly takes over, pushing the cherries to the background. Really ripe cherry with each sip. Still no orange anywhere, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Mouthfeel is light-medium with moderate carbonation. Moderate acidity, but not over the top like a lot of Lost Abbey sours. Finally jus a bit of orange peel in the finish as it warms up.

Overall, really impressive, but was a bit heavy on the fruit, and the underlying beer lacked the depth to take it to the next level.

thanks to ruzdud for getting this series of awesomeness, and split with him..Pours pretty much no head, murky mahogany brown color.

Nose is great, tons of acidic berry fruit, sour fruit, berry seed, acid, light tannins, big vinegar, so much raspberry, great sour raspberry.

Taste brings more tart raspberry, earthy and tannic seeded, juicy sweet candied raspberry, a straight up raspberry pie filling, nice sourness ave big acidic bite, mild sweet fruity vinegar, etc. Mild flemmy with acidic bite and tartness, a wine like acid and tannin note, faint orange skin note. Finish is sticky but flemmy, sour raspberry and tannic seed, big acidity, etc.

Mouth is med bod, lighter but decent carb, nice acidic bite and sourness.

Overall very good, so delicious with great fruit, tartness, acidic and tannin notes, delicious and very enjoyable

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.

Lost Abbey track beer tasting.

So excited about this one, as the recipe sounds amazing.

The beer is ruby hued with a thin, soapy head. The aroma offers raspberries, yeast, funk. A touch of sweet fruit at first, finishing with a sour candy tartness. Classic Lost Abbey funk. Ample berry flavor with a puckering finish. I prefer Veritas 006 to this, but this is a tasty brew nonetheless. Medium in body with adequate carbonation. Sourness gains intensity as I progress through the beer. Overall, this was very good.

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.

Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to Brandon for accommodating my request and bringing this.

Pours a thick reddish brown with a dark head.

Nose has lots of really dry brett, raspberry and some other fruit, some interesting floral notes, smells great

Taste is wild fruit, loads of raspberry, very tart, lots of bretty funk underneath the fruit and acidity. Fantastic.

Love this beer, something really unusual about it that makes it pretty different from most raspberry/cherry sours--maybe the orange zest but I would have called it that if I didn't know.

9.3/10

Bottle shared by the always generous Sean. Served in a snifter.

A - Light pink foam settles to a partial cap, collar, and a few fingers of lacing. Semi-transparent red-brown body. Looks a lot like Veritas 006, but without exploding over the counter and rousing all the yeast and fruit chunks.

S - Lots of raspberry and tart fruits, with a pleasant addition of citrus zest. The fruit integrates nicely with lactic sourness and light cherry vinegar, as well as a bit of vanilla malt. As it gets warmer a touch of spicy oak and perhaps a hint of acetone shows up.

T - Loads of raspberry here as well, of the sour and slightly overripe variety. Some zesty citrus that surprises in comparison to the aroma, and more in the way of lactic sourness rather than vinegar. A bit of oak and sweet orange flesh in the finish. Delicious stuff that lives up to its lineage.

M - Quite acidic and dry. Medium body, with pleasant carbonation. Was somewhat shocked by the 8.15%, as I didn't get any sense of alcohol here.

D - This is quite good. Other than the light acetone note I liked this just as much as Veritas 006, as the mandarin orange adds a nice twist. Looking forward to having this again in a few weeks, as it's a worthy addition to the pantheon of Lost Abbey wild ales.
