The Bruery sour in the rye

I had this a couple weeks ago. I liked it a lot but I could see it being a tough sell. How did you enjoy it.

I had this a couple weeks ago. I liked it a lot but I could see it being a tough sell. How did you enjoy it.

I dug it a whole lot.
It's been warm out here and I've found myself wanting to drink more and more sours.
Thought it was pretty dang sour but in a good way.
It was a fruity tartness, peach and cherries came to mind.
The carbonation was great and felt robust.
Thought there was a nice bready quality in there with a little bit of funk.
I didn't pick up any sharp vinegar sort of flavors in there, just sweet and sour fruit.
Some of the other sours I've been able to try had a very forward sherry vin or apple cider vin flavor.
It's probably the sourest beer I've had so far.
Have you had a chance to try Rueuze by them?

Ok, I am replying to my own post. The fact I mustered enough brain cells in the wee hours to document all 19 bottles that were consumed is mildly amusing. Unfortunately, the headache prevents enjoyment of such amusements.

A good chunk of the wine was consumed by chuckles, justin0505, and heldentenor, so I cannot take all the credit. I also can't take credit for that half bottle of gin.

Knives were plentiful between bottles, and I would post a picture if I could find my phone. I lost my phone in my own house it seems. But after choosing to sleep on the floor of my bathroom, I can't really expect too much.

Corrections: I repeated #10 and misspelled rose and viognier.

Tasting notes might be difficult. The pace of consumption spread over 10 adults doesn't allow a lot of time for reflection, and the unfortunate thing is that a lot of wines aren't aired out as much as they should. Oh well. With that said, I really like the Lucy rose. From what I remember it was well-balanced with nice strawberry notes. The Lucy and Epoch were my favorite roses we tried.

The Denners were '09 and the Bookers were 2010. The Bookers were amazing. They are big wines with lots of dark fruit with a really smooth and creamy mouth feel. The Alchemist was my favorite.

Even if it WAS split between you, chuckles, justin and heldentenor... how the hell are you guys still alive? My liver would have given up and seceded WELL before I got to even the Ditch Digger.

I mean, holy heck guys. 3 Denners, 3 Bookers ... These ain't exactly low alcohol... Templeton doesn't DO low alcohol wines... Also, what years on the Alchemist, Oublier, Dirt Worshipper and Digger? Wife wants to crack some, but I'm thinking they need WAY more time (they're only '10s and '09s). I realize it'll be hazy, but any thoughts?

We were lucky to have others helping out too, so it wasn't just us -- though we may have pulled the wagon a bit more than others. They all probably could have waited a bit longer, but I didn't feel any of them were too raw. And you are correct on the alcohol content. A handful of them were above 15. The '08 Corliss might have been my favorite. It was really elegant and tasty.

I have 11 Bookers which i havent touched yet, i started on Denner with 09's though and have drank all of them with the exception of a couple of bottles of Mother of exiles, I have 10's which are not touched.

The 09 Denners are great, my opinion is that aged wine is overrated, yes it gets smoother butyou dont buy Denner for a delicate smooth wine you buy it for in your face fruit and vibrancy, the )9 is in its prime from my viewpoint and you should get opening !! past about 6 years i find that vibrancy disappears and is replaced with smoother but less interesting stuff.

People on this forum are having sex? ;)

I agree with your take on Denners and aging them. I think I only have 3-5 bottles (usually Italian) that I try to age. The others bottles are sometimes aged by default -- meaning that I can't physically consume them within a reasonable amount of time.

Re: Denners. I'd never keep a Denner in the cellar for several decades, but too soon and no amount of decanting will really open it up.

Re: Forum Sex. Yes, but same thing as with knives: 210mm will get the job done, but pros go 270 to 300...

Good one, but I measure things in sun. Btw, I rechecked the bottles and MOST of them were above 15%, and one bottle was 15.8%. I think it was the Torrin.

Denner Dirt Worshipper and Booker Alchemist were the standouts for me. The St. Germaine, Hendricks and lime cocktails were a stellar way to take it over the top for those that were still standing. Even at that stage of the night I was able to memorize the recipe. Good show.

Nice! Appreciate the heads up. La Roja was one of theirs that I'm looking for but I'll for sure try to get my hands on the Madrugada Obscura.
I dig the names on all their brews and they sound like one of those breweries that just don't make an off beer.

Bistro is closed on Monday, but I'm here experimenting with a few breads (more on that later in my bread thread) so decided to have a few of my Smalltown Brown. A brown ale, with a little millet for some nuttiness, about 6.7%. So perfect for the heat and humidity.

The Stone anniversary ipa was tasty, wish I had it sooner though.
A friend picked it up on his way over and I think that one was bottled august last year...:(
I recently had the ruinten and wow is that a big bad beastly double ipa!
Firestone is awesome, I'm lucky enough to be within 3 hours of both their locations in central CA.
I actually brought that pilsner down with me from my last trip up there and it's a fantastic summer beer. Cheers!

Was out for dinner with friends but not in charge of the wine orders and too busy chatting to get all the details. But the Melville Viognier was very nice (with hamachi cheeks and collar, probably the best thing I have eaten in a long time). The red was a German Lemberger from the southwest of the country. These are pleasant, not overly complicated reds. Worked with steamed and glazed pork belly as well as with the foie gras & mushroom appetizer (better than the white). Now having a Wild Turkey 101 as a night cap, then off to bed.

Clearly should not have had that second very stiff Wild Turkey 101. Going to bed before I start writing stupid things.

Tripel Karmeliet, again I paid more than the label on the shelf stated, need to start paying attention before paying.

2009 Clos De L'Oratoire Grand Cru Bordeaux. The '09 bordeaux is amazing.

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban (birthday gift from a good friend) and a Laphroaig Cairdeas 2012. Drinky, when did your recent Bordeaux kick begin?

...Drinky, when did your recent Bordeaux kick begin? Since the UPS man delivered it to my door ;)

Actually, I ordered it over a year ago, forgot about it, then by sheer luck gave them a call to see if I had any pending orders and sure enough they had 6x '09 bordeaux bottles of mine sitting in their warehouse. 15 months later I got my wine (that's like a custom knife). I don't know that much about bordeaux, but when a good vintage comes along I buy some bottles.

A proper cold rainy night calls for a barrel aged oatmeal stout.

I had a few Flying Dog Raging B*itch belgian-style IPAs last night. Good stuff.

Nightcap after a solid double shift - avocado on toast and Johnny black.
