I agree about Jolly Pumpkin. The Bam beers are terrible.
I forgot about Goose Island! Sophie is really a great beer.

Yet, I find it odd that you think Goose Island makes decent sours but you think JP makes terrible sours. Very interesting how different palates can be!

Would you really consider Sophie sou? Granted I've only had it once but I remember it being more or a strong Belgian style golden ale

I think it is a sour. It is a brett beer IIRC. Wild yeast for sure.

I know it has some Brett in it but I never got any sourness. It is aged in wine barrels which you can kind of pick up on. I know Juliet and Lolita are two sours they make.

It's definitely tart, and somewhat sour. My opinion, obviously.

Gueuze Tilquin is another one I had for the first time recently. It was up there with my favorites. The oak character in it was amazing

I just picked up a bottle of Oud Tart from The Bruery and a bottle of Straffe Hendrix Heritage 2011. I shall report on how good they are.

Agreed.

I will trust your (and others) judgment and will try it again.

Honestly – the one I tried tasted like one part aspirin, one part chalk, and one part dirt all stirred up in a very unimpressive ale.

I have six “wild-brews” in secondary, and I will continue to experiment.

Thank you for your input!
