I don't get it
why would you want sour beer?
I was putting together a mixed 6 pack and saw this one. I was curious so I got it.
It was fucking awful. Reminded me of vomit.
It's beer for vomit lovers.
i'm not a big beer drinker. i like a few brands and types, and when in the UK bitters with lunch is nice but sour belongs in making bourbon not beer. if your beer is sour i figure your yeast was infected and i don't want anything to do with it.
I'll kettle sours and lacto sours but no Brett sours. No horse blanket shit New Belgium makes a really good sour called lafale
I fear no beer
What the actual fuck is this guy talking about?
Even as a certified beer snob, er, connoisseur, I find sour beers pretty much undrinkable.
The one style of Belgian beer I really loathe.
I went to a local brew pub and the hipster waiter said all their home made beers were sour beers, so I ordered a commercial beer. My brother arrived late and ordered one of their beers without knowing. He took one swig and asked me to taste it because he was worried it had gone bad. That's my sour beer story and I'm sticking to it.
It's an acquired taste. Go here:
and you will understand.
You poor sap.
This is by far the best Flemish.
picked up a 4 pack of Sierra Nevada bigfoot ale last night. 10% alc
Got a couple of these...I don't know if I will drink them ton
Let it sit for a year...so good cellared.
I friend of mine bought a stogage unit a while back that had 5 cases of bigfoot from the mid 90's, he gave me a couple cases. so fucking good, the wine flavor really stands out after aging that long
Are you a vomit lover?
I have a couple from 2013 in my basement....so good.
Kettle sours are beers that are soured with lactobacillus (same bacteria as yogurt) it tart and clean then they are boiled. Brettanomyces is a bacteria that is used to sour beers post fermentation. It make terrible (to me) tasting beer. Some of the descriptors are baby diaper,horse blanket,band aid... fucking terrible..
This stuff Lafolie is fantastic.
