The Lost Abbey Zinners & Saints
What the brewers say
"A blonde sour beer aged over zinfandel grapes for 3 months, creating a tart, slightly sweet ale with tons of oak and Brett on the back end."
What our panel thought
"A somewhat sulfury initial aroma hides some of the complexities of the funk. Equal parts wine-like grape flavors and subtle funk and acidity. Strange, unique, and beautifully colored, it's not as unpleasant to drink as the aroma would suggest."
What our editors thought
"A sophisticated and relatively dry wine character pushes through initially, with a grape clarity that's the envy of fellow brewers."
