I was actually thinking that initially, as it's low gravity enough that I can get away with doing an AG on my meager equipment...I'd want to pick up an extra bucket and hoses for it right, so as to keep from contaminating non-sours? Good commercial example? So I can try that side by side with the Flanders Reds and see which I like better (or possibly hate em both )

I vote this one as well. Just had a 750ml bottle a couple weeks ago and loved it.

I think it's foul too. It tastes like rotten sherry to me.

I like Grand Dame Oud Bruin a lot. Less vinegary than you typically find with the style.

I love the Duchesse. Russian River Consecration is very good too, but hard to find (Denver, Phila, and West Coast only).

This one, Marrġn Acidifie, is pretty uncommon, a colaboration brew between The Bruery and Cigar City. Very tart. Tasty, a dark sour.

The Bruery makes a great Berlinerweiss as well, Hottenroth.

Grand Dame is beautiful, almost wine like. I loved it. Another decent sour that is probably more widely distributed (but not as good) is New Belgium's La Folie.
