Stille Nacht 2010

We were inspired by @Ira Schwartz’s post to pull one of these out. Cap reads 2010. Immediate hiss and scent of burnt caramel. Carbonation is à point. Palate is fresh—figs, brown sugar, honey, dry finish. A great winter warmer. Fun to age these. — 10 days ago

Cantillon Brewery

Fou' Foune Lambic 2020

I may have given other sour beers a 10, but this takes the cake. Insanely well balanced. What sets this apart is the underlying creaminess with tannin. I wonder if it’s from apricot pits. Huge apricot flavor and sour complexity. Perfect bubbles coat your entire palate. I was not expecting to buy into the hype of this so hard. Would love to do an apricot sour tasting to see what others (SARA, Rare Bareel) are like next to this. — 7 days ago

Reserva Special Oerbier 2017

I am not a serious beer drinker, usually at the ball park or a barbecue. Curiosity gets the best of me and like wine I enjoy seeing what’s out there. Holy s#%t! This was insane. A very murky reddish brown liquid and a cream colored foam filled my glass. Yes that is a wine glass. Intense Port like aromas of dry figs and chestnuts along with cherries(?). Powerful flavors of toffee, coffee , chocolate and balsamic vinegar. Spot on balance of sweet and sour. I always thought Duchesse de Bourgogne was the most vinous beer I have ever tasted until now. Perhaps most amazingly the 13% alcohol was no where to be found. I realize others on Delectable have had beer like this but for me it was an epiphany. A totally polarizing beverage . I will definitely try other vintages to see what age creates. — 12 days ago
