Definitely try to track down some Allagash (and check out the brewery if you're ever in Portland). I don't know any good beer stores in Western MA, but if you happen to make it to the Boston area it's definitely worth checking out either Redstone Liquors in Stoneham or Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont.

You can if they don't distribute to your area.

Personally I don't think many of the Jolly Pumpkins are that great, not sour enough. Go for Odell or New Belgium La Folie.

+1 on Berliner Weisse....my absolute favorite style of sour, and I've just recently discovered this

I have to show props and give a nod to Jester King's Boxer's Revenge.

I like Dutchess du Bourgogne (sp). It was the first sour I tried and got me started on them. Funny thing was I got it not knowing it was a sour and almost poured it out thinking it had gone bad, even though I was somewhat enjoying it. Monk's Cafe is a decent one I've seen quite a few places, and not near as sour as DdB.

I also got to try a Rodenbach a few months back while on a business trip. I rather enjoyed it too, found it more like Monk's than the DdB.

IMHO - just make sure Bam Noire isn't the first Jolly Pumpkin beer you try. I love sours, but was barely able to choke this one down (and other sour aficionados I know dumped theirs down the drain).

I look forward to trying more Jolly Pumpkin beers, as many respected people speak highly of them.... but I'll stay far away from the Bam Noire.

... just my $.02, and worth about that.

cantillon gueuze is a classic and got my attention.. really, just look for anything with flemish, flanders, farmhouse, oud bruin, berliner, lambic, cuvee, kriek, framboise, roeselare, gueuze, ect.. idk if there's more but looking for most of those names will get you there.. should make a list for sure
Edit: some saisons are mildly tart and sour..

BLASPHEMY! I love Bam Noire. I mean its not much in the sour category but the Brett in it is awesome. You get that leathery funk that I don't see in a lot of funky beers.
