The best sours are usually limited releases from a local brewery. I'm blessed to be in SD county and The Lost Abbey has EXCELLENT sours like Red Poppy and Cuvee de Tomme.

I will be up at St Sours for a little bit. It will be my Christmas present to myself. If you are able to try gilgamesh. One of the best sours I've had. The oak and bourbon are very present which works amazingly well in that style. Hopefully they will have flights tomorrow, I want to try them all.

Boxer's Revenge is bad ass. I had Das Wunderkind back in September at the brewery and it was ok. Average to good IMO. The sourness was strongly lactic but there wasn't any funk to go along with it. Also had the berliner weisse which was fine, it's not a style I'm all that excited about.

I could take or leave most of their beers. Next to Boxer's Revenge my favorite is Le Petit Prince. The yeast character is great. The others are a little more hoppy than my preference in a saison (although well within the style) and I can't really get on board with those Mikkeller collabs. I like Noble King well enough but I had it on cask once and really loved it. That's the best part of their tours, you get lots of beer and they do a good job of mixing it up and putting out some special offerings.

I might be wrong, but I think the reason Das Wunderkind isn't as funky as some of the other ones is because it is a blend of young, fresh Saison with older, barrel aged sour Saison. What it does have going for it is that wonderful hop aroma! I'm hoping the bottles I have will get nice and funky with some time. Also considering culturing some yeast from it, since it's such a low gravity beer.

They do make some hoppier Saisons, but I think that is just them knowing the market. I LOVE that they don't make an IPA, but instead some hop forward character-filled beers.

Oh, and just wait for that sour red to come out...that thing is mind-blowing! Not to mention the Funk Metal sour imperial stout and Das Uberkind, what I presume to be the old sour Saison used for blending the Wunderkind.
