I tried Wild Devil form victory brewing tonight. I am beginning to enjoy sour beers. I bought two bottles one to drink and one to put away for a long time.

Neither Orval nor Wild Devil is a "sour" both are "funky" from Brettanomyces fermentation. Orval has Brett added after a clean primary fermentation, Wild Devil is fermented entirely with Brett. In addition to Brett sour beers have lactic acid bacteria that add the acidity. Glad to hear you've enjoyed what you've tried.

Try some Cantillon stuff, can't go wrong with anything from them. Dregs from a bottle of theri stuff would put you well on your way too.

Ok, what a weekend. I am in love with the duchess de bourgeone. She was a joy to drink from the first sip. Just had the rochefort 6, it was another wonderful beer to finish the weekend with.

if you make it to shangy's in allentown, pa you can get a case of duchess for about $75 which imo is a fine deal considering a 4 pack costs about $20 in jerz. you're lucky you're in penn since russian river distributes to PA. take advantage!
