Unintended flavors, but tasty anyway!

    Just drank a 2010 Dale Shameless McDale that tasted like a sour'd red ale. Never had it before, but from reading the label i'm sure a funky red ale wasn't the brewer's intention. However, that funk made it taste great! I enjoyed this beer way more than if it would have been a regular ole red ale.

    Ive heard of other happy accidents like infected matilda, any others you have enjoyed?
  2. I had a bretted Sam Smith Raspberry Ale the other day and it was phenominal! Happy beer accidents are great!
  3. I personally loved the infected Barrel Aged Old Bat Rastard I had a couple weeks ago.

    Last year's off batch of CW Peruvian Morning was not bad in my opinion.

    Last year's Red Brick Vanilla Gorilla turned into a massive sour porter, it was awesome. I finally drank my last few recently and still miss it.

    The infected Matilda and Guava Grove were both awesome. I'm a huge fan of the infected batch of Boulevard Imperial Stout (batch 2?) and the infected Berkshire Bourbon-Barrel Imperial Stout as well.
