San Marcos, CA, — The Lost Abbey will be releasing the newest version of its exceptionally rare Veritas Ale this month, continuing the trend of being a sought-after small batch of beers. The latest incarnation, Veritas 013, a blended and oak-aged American Sour with Peaches and Nectarines, will be made available to general public to purchase online beginning April 4th, 2014.
“While we have made numerous sour beers with Peaches, this is the first one to combine fresh Masumoto Peaches and Nectarines from the Central Valley” Said Tomme Arthur, Director of Brewery Operations at The Lost Abbey. “The combination of the two stone fruits makes for an incredibly refreshing beer”
Starting Friday, April 4th at 11am PDT, Veritas 013 will be available to purchase at www.LostAbbey.com. Transactions will be limited to 4 (four) bottles of Veritas 013 at $40 per bottle (plus CA sales tax and a $1 convenience charge per bottle) per person. Only 170 cases of Veritas 013 will be made available.
The 13th edition of the Veritas series is an experiment using 3 separate strains of Brettanomyces, before honey, fresh Peaches and Nectarines from Masumoto Farms were added. The beer spent approximately 2 years total in French Oak barrels. Notes of Peaches and Nectarines, oaky wood, brown sugar and Toasted Granola come through with character from the Brett present throughout the experience.
