I'm now officially on a mission to find some of these in pubs in my area. +1 for you suck, at least until find some locally myself.

I think I've decided that most types of sour beer I will never enjoy. I bought an Orval and a Duchesse de Bourgogne recently. The orval smelled really interesting, but I just find the sensations of drinking it to be unpleasant. The Duchesse was beautifully complex and refreshingly sour. Seems to me that the only sours I ever have (and probably ever will) enjoyed are Flemish ales and the really sweet fruit lambics.

I had a Hottenroth Berliner Wiesse from The Bruery last week. This is one of the finest beers it has ever been my pleasure to taste. Light and crisp, 3% ABV, subtly tart compared to other Berliners, this is an awesome summer beer.


EDIT: no need to qualify that, this is an awesome beer (period)

Orval's not really a sour, it's just brett.

Some day you will love Cantillon.

Seemed pretty sour to me, but I guess it's not a lacto kind of sour. But if that's true that it just a brett flavour, then that puts me off using brett in beer. I was thinking of doing a Brett b beer because I like that horseblanket flavour and thought it might not really be sour without lactic bacteria in it.

Brett could produce lactic acid and more so if glucose is present. With that said I don’t think Orval has much if any sourness…it has been a while since I last had it though.

Brett doesnt produce lactic, it can produce acetic acid though, but that requires a bit of oxygen and no other fermentation to be occuring
