Weyerbacher Riserva was quite sour. Deschutes Green Monster is up there too.
Hanssens Kriek, not sure on vintage, was nail polish remover sour. Absolutely loved it!
Any of the Upland fruit sours for me. It's peeling paint sort of sour. No balance at all. They do nothing for me. I've had a few from the Bruery that fall into that category as well. I can agree with the Cascade Apricot crowd too. Bruery Bottleworks 12 is about as sour of a beer that I've had AND enjoyed. Too many American Wild Ales are sour for the sake of sour.
Probably 3F Oude Gueuze
Stopped by FW Barrelworks this weekend and had a taster of Sour Opal. Everytime I took a sip, I would try to tell my wife how good it was, but was abruptly stopped by the face twisting sourness. Man I wish they would bottle that stuff!
Love Child #4 recently. I haven't had a Guava Grove in awhile but I remember last year's being extremely sour when it was fresh. I've had other disagree with me on that so not sure.
New Belgium's Whiskey-BA Love w/ Blackberries. Don't think the best sours have to be @ Warhead level, but this thing was both sour as hell AND utterly delicious. Easily one of my favorite sours ever.
Probably Weyerbacher Riserva.
To me it is Duchesse de Bourgogne, due to its outstanding vinegar tastes, mixed with grapes and wood.
Crooked Stave Raspberry Dark Origins comes to mind. Man was that good.
Is Love Child #4 so sour 1 person can't finish it all ?
That one Persimmon Lambic from Upland. The persimmons were good, but imagine them doused in finger nail polish remover. That or the Bruery's Rueuze.
I finished one on my own. It took work, but it was doable.
I've not had many but the Gose from Westbrook is probably the most sour i've had. And I wouldnt even consider it THAT sour. But its a style of beer I am interested into venturing into.
Trinity Seven Day sour. I puckered so hard after every sip.
Motherfunker or Upland Kiwi Lambic.
Hanssens Oude Gueuze Lambic Ale is pretty sour as is De Oude Cam. Many of the more popular producers sweeten their fruit lambics up for the High School date crowd but Cantillon does not and their stuff can be pretty sour.
Love Child #4 is a DELICIOUS beer. Higher ABV than other sours and that tart just hits the spot.
Trinity Old Growth
And then run away with your wife!
Bruery Mother Funker
Upland Kiwi Lambic
Lost Abbey Veritas 003
Birrifico Del Ducato's My Blueberry Nightmare really did me in- from the yeast to the blueberries everything was screaming Sour and Acid and Vinerous. Really I would have been happy with a two ounce pour and not the twenty ounces I was given.
Hanssens Oude Kriek was the sourest sour I've had. My favorite though was Bruery Sour in the Rye.
1999 Belle-Vue Selection Lambic, absolutely brutally sour, I wish I could drink it again.
Love Child #4 was like drinking liquefied Warheads. Tasty though.
Goose island Halia pretty out there.
Bruery Mother Funker and fresh Fou Fonne get my vote
I don't drink a lot of sour brews so I'm not confident judging individual versions against the style, and I'm always reluctant to speculate about infection, but a year or two ago I had a Night Shift Somer Weisse that was so astringent and vinegary that I'm still not convinced there wasn't something very, very not-according-to-plan going on with it. I could feel my throat closing against it but kept taking sips and waiting to acclimate.
Eventually I'll see this beer on a shelf and give it another go, just to make sure. I like Night Shift stuff otherwise.
I've had one sour and that was sour enough!
I'm drinking that right now and I will agree it smacks ya right away. Not the most sour for me, but definitely up there.
i will have to second (or third) Bear Republics Tartare Rouge
i am a huge sour fan (on that specific night i chose sour in the rye instead) but this one put me over the edge
NG Wild Sour Ale
Oude Tart w/ Sour Cherries
Weyerbacher Riserva (2009 or 2010 I think was a beast)
Mouth watering just thinking of these.
It's been said, but Upland's Kiwi Lambic is consistently the sourest sour out there for me... the others in their fruited sour lineup tend to have a few bottles per release that for some reason go crazy sour, while many (i'd say most) stay within the limits of balance while airing on the sour side.
Upland Persimmon for sure. Yowzas!
upland strawberry & cherry. not in a good way either.
Oude Tart and Petrus Aged Pale, nicely combining sour and flavor. Must try this Love Child though. When was #4 released and thus when will #5 be brewed?
Cascade Apricot Ale was the sourest beer that I've ever had. Just drank a Love Child #4 and the tartness isn't even in the same category.
