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.

Bottle shared thanks to starrdogg from an awesome trader in CA! Tried in order with all tracks in the series. This label is awesome BTW, really all of them are, but this one stuck in my mind the most. Another strong beer from the series.

It has a dark red look and bubbly ring of head, almost like your fruit based cantillon lambics, nice stuff.

There is a lot of fruit in the nose, with additions of raspberry-cherry-orange zest shing through over oak and a touch of tartness.

Taste is huge again in the fruit department with the aforementioned fruits shining through, sort of has that tutti-fruitti kind of vibe. Decent tartness and great mellow vanilla from the barrel. Lots of raspeberry, once again and citrus.

Nice carbonation and it has that spritzy mouthful, light tartness some acidity.

Overall nice.

12 oz bottle.

Pours a dark cherry red with a thin tan head. Aroma of fresh cherry fruit, jam, fresh red raspberry and red wine. Flavor is a little too oaky and vinous in the finish, but otherwise this a nice bright cherry skin and pit fruit sour. Medium thick and moderate carbonation with a strong acidic finish and much more sour than Track 5. Loads of fruit but lacking the depth of V006 to make this significantly different than FdA.

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.

A: poured a vibrant crimson red in color with purplish highlights and a thin bubbly head that left little wisps of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: Plenty of raspberries and cherry fruit present upfront in the aroma with the signature lost abbey bretty funk character, some acidic notes, signs of zesty citrus, signs of vinegar and good wood notes.

T: raspberries and cherries were huge elements on the palate with a nice sour acidic punch, alongside orange zest twang, great funky bretty character, oak wood accents and slight vinegar flavor.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a fruity, semi funky, woody, acidic, sour and mild dry finish.

O: definitely and exceptional beer all around and was glad to have tried it. Veritas 6 is off the hook and so is this one.

Pours a hazy dark red with a fluffy white head. Aroma is big on the raspberries with some nice lactic tartness and a bit of funkiness in there. I was worried after the aroma that this would taste too much like the Track 5, but it actually tastes quite different despite being heavily raspberry-flavored. It's got a lot more oak than the Track 5 and it's much more sour. It's got a bit of a citrus character in the finish which goes along quite nicely with the raspberries. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with nice carbonation and it's mouth-coating. Overall, another great beer that is very reminiscent of Veritas 006.

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.
