    Hey my fellow beers freaks!

    Just got tuned onto sours up at RR last week. Enjoyed Cons, Supp, Temp and Sanc.

    Have some access to Lost Abbey stuff, any recommendations for sours from them, limited or not?

    Any insight is great!

    Cable Car, available in either SF or SD

    I usually don't see any of their sours around up here in Sonoma County so I can't help out much beyond the Cable Car recommendation, although one of these days I'll open up my Cuvee de Tomme mini vertical and see what it tastes like. From what is out there that I would try if I could: I'd imagine most of the Veritas series, Yellow Bus, Isabelle Proximus, Duck Duck Gooze and some others would be at the top of my want list if I had access to more of their stuff. I think I'll settle by hoping that they have Red Poppy available at the local stores up here.

    Now that you are into RR you should make the short trek up here in a couple weeks to round out the experience.

    Cuvee de Tomme is wonderful this year. Avoid last years.
