Just received this from brew from PeprSprYoFace not many days ago. I do loves me a good Lost Abbey sour and thankfully when I opened this it wasn’t flat or a gusher. Drank from my The Lost Abbey goblet.

Appearance- Pours a dark reddish copper with a beautiful two finger lightly pink head. A great cap and collar is left the entire beer along with sheets of luscious lacing.
Smell- Full of ripe tart raspberries that just fill my nostrils with their fruity goodness. It’s got a nice tart smell to it that makes my mouth water but it seems to be more from the raspberries than the beer. Maybe they’re just so potent it takes over. A touch of vanilla and wood peak in but for the most part the raspberries dominate the nose.
Taste- Nice and sour as there is a lactic bite that shreds the taste buds. A bit of vinegar mixes with the fruitiness of the raspberries. The raspberries add a nice tart aspect but they aren’t near as potent as the nose led me to believe. The beer is fairly sour but the wood is actually more of the focal point to me. Its nice and oaky with a big vanilla aspect that I really enjoy in sours. If someone was to ask me to guess who made this I’d probably say Upland. The finish has a bit of lingering raspberry and vanilla.
Mouthfeel- Medium body with a nice carbonated bite that is prickly and sharp.
Drinkability- Pretty damned tasty brew that I thoroughly enjoyed. It has a fairly nice balance between the sour, raspberries and wood but I really love the big vanilla aspect that mixes with the fruit. Now to just get them to put it in 750’s. Thanks much Corey!

Pours into my glass a hazy deep reddish purple pour with a ring of off white bubbles. Aromas burst out with a conglomeration of fresh bright raspberry and woody tannins. Sour funk swirls about with a bretty barnyard kick to it. Aroma is really bright and inviting.

First sip brings bright, tart raspberry rushing upfront. Sweetness is there to balance it along with plenty of funkiness and wood tannins. Puckers the mouth on the way down. Flows down with raspberry all over the place and lingering tartness. Dry on the finish. Wow, really a tasty brew here!

Mouthfeel is smooth with punchy carbonation. Good body and overall quite the tasty brew. Of all the new Lost Abbey beers I've had this ranks up there with the best of them. Worth seeking this one out, especially if you're a fan of framboise. No gusher on this bottle, although the cork was a bit of a pain to get out.
