I can see that. The first few sips of Duchesse for me tasted pretty good, but by the end of the glass I was really over it. I can definitely picture what you're talking about with Worcestershire.

You'll find that 99.9% of sours come in singles or the larger 22-24 oz. bottles. It's not too often that you see them in 4 or 6 packs.

Our beer store has a decent selection of singles in approximately 12 oz bottles but they range anywhere from $4 to $15. They will let you break a pack, but you're right, they only carry a couple of sours that come in packs. Makes it a little frustrating when you want to expand you're horizons. We would have been screwed if we had bought a 750 ml bottle of Duchesse. The other couple with us that night disliked it outright and we grew tired of it after just a few sips.

What sours in 12 oz. bottles are you finding other than Duchesse?

Russian River has a few 350 ml bottles. Haven't seen many more quality sours offered in that size. I don't really pay attention to Lindemann's offerings. Maybe they do it.

If you can get your hands on some Timmermans pumpkin lambic, I'd recommend it. Well-balanced, not super off-putting to newbies, and seasonally appropriate.

Tart of Darkness is amazing!

Also, I know several people have mentioned Jolly Pumpkin, but not too many specific names. I think the Oro de Calabaza is a great sour, especially for those just getting into them. Not overbearing at all, but really well balanced.

Also, someone has mentioned Petrus Oud Bruin, but I would also suggest Petrus Aged Pale Ale. Its more sour than the oud bruin and less sweet. Its their sour base beer that gets blended with the younger and sweeter cousin to make the oud bruin.

Finally, please, for their sake, get Russian River Temptation. That beer is liquid gold.

Not sure how far they distribute, but Hoodwink by Two Brothers Brewing was pretty tasty... and not too sour.

They're out there. I can fairly easily get Petrus Oud Bruin, Petrus Aged Pale, Duchesse, Bellegems Bruin, Monk's Cafe, and Cuvee des Jacobins all in 11 or 12oz bottles.

Ahh, I don't really buy too many of the Belgians other than Cantillon.

Well, there's nothing wrong with sticking to Cantillion. I wish it were more readily available out here. I have a hell of a time finding it.
