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.

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.

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.

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

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.
