Jon and I had a terrible Uinta (Sum'r Ale) the other night. Tasted like a slightly more upscale Bud but at $10 for a sixer it pissed me off. Jon says any beer that claims to be organic is crap. (this beer claimed to be organic)

We were initially looking for a good sour beer but were put off by the $6 for a 10oz bottle price we found.

So, my quest continues. Does anyone know of a good sour beer that won't cost me a left or right nut to drink and is readily available? I'm looking for an honest to goodness beer + warhead concoction. Someone recommended Saisons previously. While I do dig the barnyard style, "they ain't gonna make me pucker."

Was it this one?

Cuvee Des Jacobins Rouge

It is expensive I can confirm that it will make you pucker. The last time I drank it I actually thought to myself that I felt like I was drinking liquid Warheads. Just try one, it's still only a bit more than you'd pay for a shitty beer in a bar.

Anybody can be cool, but AWESOME takes practice.

The New Holland Blue Sunday Sour (~$8 for a 22oz) is really good, I just had it last Monday. And I love sours. Something more easily findable is the Monk's Cafe Flemish-Style Sour (~$11 for a 4 pack), the new Goose Island Juliet (~$8 for a 22oz) is surprisingly good (I am not a big Goose fan) or Rodenbach (~$8 for a 750 mL). Those 4 are ordered in my preference order.

As for a very good organic, Sam Smith makes multiple and all have been very good in my opinion. I can't say that the fact that they are organic makes them better, but I can say that they are very good. Samuel Smith's Organic Ale (~$4 for a 18.7oz bottle) for example.

Just had a Rouge, it was delicious. Worth it as a treat.

In addition to it, Jon and I got a 'Sour pack' from Binny's. We had a Petrus in the pack which was good too. It tasted a little like sour kraut, which to me is good.

The Rouge is $6 for 11.2oz (yikes) but the sour pack was $20 for a sixer.

I've had Monk's before. Its decent. It was one of the beers in the sixer too.
