PNC is one of my favorites, so gooood
Have to add CS Batch 60 to that list, probably in the tied for 10th spot, what an amazing, unique beer. Sooo much citrus.
bottle or draft? bottle is soooooo much better than the draft is, like a completely different beer
I've had it on draft and from the bottle, but with a few months in between. I don't recall one being particularly different than the other, but perhaps I would if I'd had them side by side.
Not in any order:
Lou Pepe Framboise
Oude Kriek de Cam
3F Oude Geuze Vintage
Armand'4 Zomer? Cantillon Classic Gueuze? I dunno--I haven't had Lente yet but I'm sure it will take this spot when I open one
This is basically impossible...but, I'll give it a shot. In no particular order:
Cantillon St Lamvinus (I prefer the '11 vintage, which I think someone also said earlier)
Cantillon Fou Foune ('09 rocks, but any vintage once it hits the 2-3 year mark is perfect for me)
3F Framboos ('11)
Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek (and Framboise, but slightly lesser so for me)
RR Beatification (Batch 3 is really special, but all the ones I've had are good)
De Cam Lambiek Special
Southampton Black Raspberry Lambic
Crooked Stave Chardonnay Surette Reserva (when it was really fresh)
There's tons of other ones...Bullfrog Et Tu Brut, Chez Monus, the Armand seasons, Cantillon/3F/Tilquin gueuze, Cable Car, WWBV (if that counts), West Ashley, Sour in the Rye Peaches, Fantasia, etc etc.
I have a sour problem.
Cantillon Rosé de Gambrinus is def top of my list.
In no particular order:
1. Cascade Elderberry
2. Duchesse de Bourgogne
3. GI Lolita
4. Tilquin Gueuze
5. Birra del Borgo Duchessic
6. NB La Terroir
7. Cuvée des Jacobins Rouge
8. Deschutes The Dissident
9. Rodenbach Grand Cru
10. Monk's Cafe Flemish Red
Also, Lou Pepe framboise was one of the best beers I've ever had but I don't really count it as a sour because it was more like an earthy sweet candy flavor with a hint of tartness than full-on sour. Same with Cantillon Kriek. Tasted more like a crab apple than anything else. Oh and I forgot BFM square root 225. Though technically a saison, it definitely had some sourness to it and was magnificent.
One of my favorites:
Flora - Satsuma Mandarin
