Don't want to hijack this thread going too far down the path on our group brew. I'll answer you over on that thread.

I had this on tap recently and it was my first sour beer. I may have to come over to the sour side after tasting it. It was great.

Actually, it's not. Says right on the label, "100% natural and unpasteurized."

Okay, I guess I just assumed it was pasteurized since Rodenbach is. But, it seems it's filtered, so their should not be any live bugs.
Brewing Flemish Red Ale, by Raj B. Apte
On page 63 of Wild Brews, Sparrow writes that it is pasteurized so who knows if they changed this practice or if he is wrong.

Not a big fan of the Duchesse - Zoetzuur is a lot more enjoyable among the "sweet" Flanders Reds, in my opinion.
For the more straightforward reds I really like La Folie and Rodenbach Grand Cru, which I sadly haven't been able to find since Christmas last year, either.

I love the Duchesse. I have had a few over the years and I must not have been paying enough attention, as I do not recall much variance. Maybe I just got lucky and they were pretty similar.

This is one of my favorite beers of all time. To me it almost has a cider taste. I've even gotten non-beer drinkers into it.

I just picked up a couple bottles of RGC form a little liquor store in DC, 1900 block of L st NW I think. First place I have ever seen it. I asked the guy about it since I have not been able to find it elsewhere. He said they just started selling "single serving" beer due to some recently changed law. Did not know about it being difficult to find previously.

Yeah. I was finally able to track down a bunch of them and am saving them for special events until the imports resume.
