    You Driving me Glazey Cream Ale! My Cream Ale! It is a bit bitter and sour at the start, then finishes off with creamy sweetness due to the 20 glazed donuts I put into it!

    It would seem that combo would be rare but it is not. Revisiting timeless brews like this has become fun. With so many new things, easy to overlook.

    Funky Prowler by Highway Manor in PA is one of the most interesting sours ive had to date. Avery’s Tequilacerbus is another great one

    Gosh...I've had so many I loved. Several Cantillons blew my mind when I visited them the first time (I'll be back in a couple weeks). But, Cascade's Bourbonic Plague shocked me, tasted the first time I visited their place in Portland a few years ago.

    Surprisingly, I haven't reviewed it.

    My wife, more focused on sours than me...
    Rodenbach Alexander
    Cascade Apricot
    Cantillon (all of them)
    Drie Fonteinen (all of them)

    I certainly can't argue with any of those.

    This & there's nothing else that comes close that doesn't make me think I'm a child drinking sour patch kids nonsense that turns my stomach in seconds flat.
    Overall, I'm not a huge fan & the fad seems a tad silly but then all of these phases of beervolution seem that way when they start as brewers & drinkers run to the stage like sycophants. Until I can enjoy more than one at a clip I'll yield to the "masses" have at it.

    Before finding out that brett and pedio throw an ungodly amount of histamine like substances into a beer I was always fond of trinity brewing red swingline. Once I figured out I was stuck with kettle sours only I found the provincial series from funkwerks really suited my needs.

    Allagash Coolship Resurgam.

    Preferably in the 3-5 year old (from bottling date) range.

    I'm sure it's my favorite since it was my gateway drug to geuze (although, being American, I don't think you can call it that), but every time I return to it, it's better to my admittedly pedestrian palate than the Cantillon / Boon / Timmerman / Tilquin etc. European old-world giants.

    Pretty much anything that Jackie O's, Urban Artifact, and Littlefish put out.

    Ohio has a lot of good sour production from those 3 breweries.

    New Glarus Sour Fruit (Very Sour Blackberry) and Side Project Raspe. I could pretty much drink these all day.
