From 750 mL corked bottle to Lost Abbey teku glass. 2012 bottle

A: Orange-tan appearahcne, cloudy. Looks like an orangesicle with the creamy head.

S: Tart and citrusy nose, a little sweet. Suggestions of lemon zest and dried grass edge the bouquet.

T/M: Light and refreshing on the palate. Tart, but cellaring has bent the flavor profile toward sweeter aspects (I've had this fresh and it's much more tart). Earthy mid-sip with floral tones. Finishes quickly without much lingering between sips.

Refreshing and easy to drink...has held up well given the ABV.

This one was bottled 2/26/2012.

Appearance is deep, hazy gold with lots of carbonation, but no head. Smells vibrant, lemony, stone fruit, and a hint of barnyard. Tastes almost identical to how it smells, very pleasant, light funk and oak in the aftertaste. Highly effervescent.

Ultimately, this is a beautiful beer.

From a bottle, pours a straw yellow color with fizzy white head.

The smell is funk, lemon, cheese, barnyard must, zesty. The flavor is lemon, white grape, good funk character, a little cheese, hay and straw. The mouthfeel is pretty balanced, not too acidic, pretty drinkable.

Overall, this was a big hit for me.

I think this bottle might have been sitting on the shelf too long.

This is one of the most acidic, sourest beers ever. I love it. Will leave better notes later.

Intense, puckering bitterness. Almost like lemon juice. Dry, white wine-like quality. White grape flavor. Mild oak. High carbonation is unexpected yet warmly welcomed on the palate. When I think of a gueuze, this is exactly what comes to mind.

Very dry and crisp. Tastes bigger than it is.
