I gave both the Hottenroth and Duchesse a taste tonight. Berliner-weisse is off the table. It was interesting and worth a try, but not a fan. Now Duchesse is amazing. I'll add it to my list of "eventually I'll brew this" beers. Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

My pleasure and I'm glad you dug the Duchesse!

I haven't had many, but so far my favorites are Supplication from Russian River & Le Terroir from New Belgium.

I would vote for a berliner weisse also, tasty and refreshing. There was an article in a recent zymurgy about making a sour starter pre-boil and getting the complexity of an authentic culture without possibly contaminating your equipment. Seems pretty easy and quicker than most sours.

sour mash couldn't be easier. Bit of risk though. I'm giving it a shot this wkend.

Thanks to the site update and me having to get used to navigating it, found myself looking through my old threads. Came upon this one, and realized it's been one year today since I had my first sour. And now I love 'em. Heh. The Berliner Weisse style has really grown on me. Haven't had Hottenroth since that first bottle, so I really need to give it another shot.

The best idea is to avoid sour beers before you get obsessed with them.

Truthiness, it rocks your perception of what beer is.
