    This will sound blasphemous, but the best thing I had was a Black Tuesday/FouFoune black and tan. Decadent!

    You say blasphemous, I say orgasmic.

    That Fou Foune was killer though, thanks Frank & Pasta!

    Some like to refer to them as Frasta. Me? I call them Pastank. Truly THE celebrity couple of the Great Lakes BA's.

    The Fou Foune was outstanding. Perfect to follow up after my BT pour.

    I'd never be able to convince the wife. However, if someone else has a tasting I can bring the sours. Right now the sours I have ready are:

    Sour cherry brown
    Kreik
    Sour Bourbon Barrel Oud Bruin
    Sour Porter
    Sour cherry amber

    The straight lambic will be ready soon.

    I have been following the thread and am still up in the air. Saturday afternoons are not very good for me. One other problem is that I have given up booze until MSU loses another basketball game. If they win the title I will be very happy and also very sad.

    The Melange #3 was amazing. I got a splash of Cherry Adam from the Wood, it did not disappoint, if the guy who gave me a taste is out there, thanks again. La Roja GR was pretty tasty too.
