    One bad bottle out of thousands isn't an infection. Could have been damaged by heat/light too. GA no longer gets Struise but the last few Pannepots we sold last year all went to happy people, including myself. No one mentioned anything off.

    Had a 2011 last month and it was great. 2013 is the latest pannepot released (as far as I know). I received some 2013 in trade but I don't think it has hit distro in the US yet.

    Yeah, interesting. I had a 2011 about a week ago and no sourness. And funny about being moved, it is indeed a shelf beer

    I had one not too long ago, it wasn't sour but definitely had a fruity sweetness to the point of tartness.

    Sounds like your palate sucks Seth. Maybe you should exchange your taste buds with someone who knows what good beer tastes like. Lol (I'm honestly lol'ing to myself right now). Sorry, lol. I don't have anything to contribute but it does seem like I have had some batch variation with some of their other beers although its been awhile.

    Took the words right out of my mouth. Had one late 2013 and I got no sour.

    I had a 2011 about a month ago and it was a gusher, but didn't taste sour or infected to me.

    This one, along with a select few other BSDAs/quads, have an off aroma/flavor to me that is slightly sour and kinda like vomit or sewage. Not in a generically bad way, but specifically like the smell of walking by an open septic tank or the taste of food coming back up. I'm not sure what it is, but the most recent example for me was Goths and Vandals. PFriem's BSDA has this going on as well. Some people are more (or differently) sensetive to certain flavors than others. A good example is the onion/garlic flavor that some people are genetically predisposed to get from Summit hops. Given that all three of these beers are highly regarded, I suspect that you and I are both picking up on something particular that others don't get. Just a guess, though
