(San Marcos, CA) – There has been some speculation on the forums as to what exactly The Lost Abbey has created in Veritas 011 is going to be so BeerPulse pinged the brewery on Tuesday to get the scoop. The beer will be released this weekend.
Veritas 011 is a Barleywine aged in McCall Cognac Barrels for 11 months. We added some fresh nectarines over the summer and hit it with a splash of Brett Clausenii.
It is not sour and may only develop a bit a fruity Brett qualities over time, so we aren’t expecting a full blown sour ale. ABV is 12.85%.
We bottled enough that everyone at the Barrel Night will get one 750ml bottle and can purchase one additional bottle for $35. As with all the Veritas, this will never hit general distribution.
