Default Two Hearted Infection Hits Bells

Looks like the trial of a new sanitizing procedure bit Bells in the butt. The company is voluntarily recalling two bottled batches of Two Hearted Ale--batches 9663 & 9674.

Oh my god, I had a sixer that I finished last week. I had a couple bottles that seemed "funky." Honestly I thought it was my tastebuds. I had cooked salmon for dinner that night, so I thought it was just a bad combination of the salmon and the beer.

It was bottle 4 and 5. The next day I finished bottle 6 and it tasted fine. So I just figured it was me.

Interesting.

Still got an empty? You can see if it's one of the tainted batch numbers.

Yeah I think I still have them. It was at my Girlfirend's. I'll have to check tonight.

But it sure was funky tasting.

I BOUGHT A WHOLE PHUCKING CASE OF THE BAD BATCH!!!!! It was for a party, and I knew it was infected immediately....but my friends had managed to guzzle a sixer of it before I had one to notice....I'm definitely getting a refund or exchange, the stuff is expensive.

I had one at a buddies house back on the 7th of May that I could have sworn wasn't right.... Very astringent... Wonder if it's from the bad batch.

Good for Bell's to call it out and ask for bottles back. Not every brewery would do this.

We had a couple of Oberons from this years batch that seemed very off. Too bad no recalls on that.
