Thought it would be interesting to see everyones opinion on them. My favorite that I have tried is Russian River Consecration. It is pretty sour, gotta love that bite.

Rodenbach 2007 Vintage Ale, Consecration and Cantillion Lou Pepe 2007 are three of my favourite sours. I've got some of the Rodenbach 2009 Vintage Ale but it doesn't have the same oak as the 2007.

I've had a 750 ml of Rodenbach but I don't remember what vintage it was. It was a very good Sour Ale to introduce people to that type of beer.

Hmmmm....I loved Cantillon Iris (the one time I was able to get it), I love 1809 Berliner Weisse. Seems people either love it or hate it, but I love Duchesse. I'd love to try some of RR or Jolly Pumpkin's sours, but as of yet I haven't been able to get my hands on any of them.

Cantillon Grand Cru or the Sour Brown that New Belgium brews. Can't remember the name. I'm actually going to a Sour Beer festival a week from today hosted by Upland out of Bloomington so I may update my list :D

I prefer "regular" Rodenbach to the Gran Cru



La Roja is almost like drinking a marinade. Not a good starter sour.

This thread has way too many pictures.

That Guava *was* good, but it was an "unintentional" sour.

Lots of sours I haven't tried. Need to step up my game. It is hard living in Chico, thy don't offer them around that often. Can't wait to move to Seattle.
