Pucker up, mother puckers!

I ended up drinking 9 times my body weight in beer, broke three glasses over my head, 7 over others, ordered up 17 hookers for a little afterparty, held a cabbie hostage while running his cab through the Madison capitol doors, and I grabbed gator's ass.

Took a brain vacation yesterday.  It was really refreshing.  Nice low ABV.  Great for day drinking.

Stopped by Libertine yesterday and had a few sours. Their gose was delightful as always. I feel like they do a good job balancing this one. Not over the top sour or salty.

Sldo had their Summer Breeze, a fruited sour that was very refreshing.

Finished with Viva la Spongebob. A pineapple sour that will eat the lining of your stomach immediately. I enjoyed the first two sips but after that it was too much acid for me.

Drank most of a sixer of a nice cucumber lime “saison” from Whiner, called “El Tub”. Will probably take down the last 2 tonight :ale: :ale:

Starting my sour month with Mad Anthony's Pineapple Tart.  Kettle soured, nice tart/sweet pineapple flavor.

Helped out my friends at Fortlandia for their 2nd anniversary party on Saturday.  Had samples of most of their taps while serving, including these kettle-soured brews:
  • Cara Cara orange
  • Blackberry Berliner Weisse
  • Dragonfruit/Passionfruit
  • Apricot

I cracked a Goses are Red from the Bruery a few days back.  It wasn’t that bad.  I’m just not super into these, and 16 oz was way more than I wanted.  But it tasted better than I expected.

Brother Pucker - sour blackberry “saison”
Brother Chimp Brewing, North Aurora, IL

This was pretty good, distinct blackberry, not overly acidic, and some inkling of the base beer. Only described as a “fruited sour”, the receipt said saison, which threw me for a loop.

Oh that reminds me - I had the Zenne Pils at Great Dane on Friday night.  Pilsner ingredients but 100% Brett fermentation.  Little tart, little funky.

Nice! :cheers: First report i've heard of it in the US. Wait is this the De La Senne one, or a Great Dane beer? :confused: TIA

Edit: It's a Great Dane beer, just similarly named with De La Senne's.

"We’re calling this one a Pilsner because it was inspired by this classic style, and shares the bulk of its ingredients in common. German Pils malt, Czech and German hops, clear, golden color- These all suggest Pilsner. But this is no classic Pilsner, as it is fermented exclusively with Brettanomyces Claussenii yeast. The flavor and aroma is dominated by this unique yeast. Aromas of pear and apple come across initially, followed by sweeter aromas of tropical, or very ripe fruit. Then you might notice a hint of tartness, which leads to a bracing tartness in the palate. Finally, a hint of “funk” or musk just to keep it from getting cloying. And somewhere in there you might get a little crisp malt flavor too! This makes for a complexly flavored beer evoking the fruity, tart character of Lambic beers from the Zenne valley region of Belgium."

Forgot this was still the monthly thread... :banned:

Keeping Together - The Earth is All We Have in Common - mixed ferm Biére de Garde
Keeping Together - We are the Counterculture - dark saison
Propolis - Oud Bruin 2017

The KT BdG was excellent, and the Propolis is pretty nice too. The dark saison was fine but just ok. Got a little too over attenuated.

Forgot about this thread as well.  Had a Logsdon over the weekend.  Forgot what it was called but I remember reading on the bottle that it was spontaneously fermented in some type of style that looked like a phonetic spelling for Lambic.  It was very refreshing and not very acidic.  I'll try to look it up later on.  The biggest takeaway is that I'm stoked Logsdon is distributing here now.  Can't remember who on here first told me about them but I've liked all the beers I've tried from them so far.

Spontané Wilde maybe? Really good stuff. Their stuff is pretty consistently good, though kinda pricey so I rarely pick them up. Tried the grape spons and the kriek, all were good.

I did a shite job of logging the sours and tarts that I drank this month, but it was a lot of them.

#behindthecurve

Drinking my second and third beers of 2021 tonight, while burning sticks and branches collected from the yard thus far this spring/summer.

SuperNatural (local) Lunar Eclipse dark sour braggot - last beer I bought in Feb(ish?) - not bad, but lacking a bit of oomph.

2017 NG Berliner - back of the beer fridge find, probably sitting there since post-GT that year. Still tasting pretty good, but doesn't have the tart punchiness when consumed fresh.

Is that NG Berliner made with wine grapes? I remember the first one (Unplugged series) did once upon a time.

Yes!  That's the one.  It was great.  I think I picked this one because it was the least expensive of the Logsdon available at the time.
