    Once with Ratebeer summer gathering and at a couple other beer tastings that friends shared it with me.
    Right on man. The Isabelle Proximus was one of the best beers I've ever had. I traded two RR 375ml Beatifications for one of them. I loved the Red Poppy, and the Cuvee de Tomme (when it was carbonated). I still haven't had the Cable Car or DDG yet.

    Do you know T0rino over on BA? I'm good friends with him and we're always trying to work out some good trade efforts to acquire lots of good stuff that isn't distributed here.

    The Oude Tart is outstanding! Very well balanced in terms of tart/sour for its style, thus upping the drinkability like crazy. It's comparable to RR's Supplication from the cherries used, and it will be interesting to see how the Oude Tart ages.

    I don't eat bacon, but the people I was sharing a table with kept raving about the chocolate covered bacon! They made it sound awesome!

    It was amazing! All the free beer you could drink, and all the Beachwood BBQ food you could eat! The folks at The Bruery really went out for this! The highlight for me was the BA Papiers, with the Brandy being my favorite. I wasn't huge on the rye version, but the whiskey barrel was really damn good. The Dirty Beaver Juice Weekend was what I sipped on the most, and the Oude Tart is absolutely spectacular! I picked up 2 bottles of Mischief to take home, as I was really fond of that one and regret only leaving with 2 of them. Oh well. I've got 5 Oude Tarts at home to keep me busy for a while
    Session 2. I love the Oude Tart and it is totally not my style of beer. I was bummed they didn't have any Melange that night. It is very good. I had it on tap there about 2 months ago. I think it was Melange #3.

    Yeah, I know t0rin0 (Bobby R). He's a good friend of mine as well.
    Been to many beer tasting with him.

    I got to try Oude Tart last night at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Hollywood for the Bruery/Mischief & Cheese pairing. Awesome beer!

    Melange #4 was the most murkierst beer I've ever seen.

    I love the Oude Tart...... Mischief is great too, and I should have grabbed some more bottles of it.

    I haven't had the Melange #4 yet, but #3 was fantastic and up there with some of the Bruery's best. I believe they are supposed to bottle #3 at some point. To this day, White Oak is still by far my favorite release from them.

    Yeah, definitely not much carbonation in the Sinner. We had some bottles of it at my uncle's house, since he usually has us all over for a tasting a day or two after xmas (and again in summer). We did pretty much all dark/winter stuff. Sent us home with some bottles of Sinners and Cuvee as well.

    Good to see some other sour fans around here. Did I mention Chili Wonka before? Awesome beer I had at the Stone Sour Fest last summer.

    Although not my favorite or "go to" style, I still enjoy sours/wild ales! Russian River seemed to perfect the style, and The Bruery's Oude Tart is right up there with the best - Beatification and Supplication, in my opinion. I really hope they continue on with the sours and the strong ales - as they've been damn near flawless thus far.

    I had the Chili Wonka at the Stone Sour Fest. Not my favorite of the festival but it was damn good. Valley Brewing makes some killer beers. UberHoppy & Olallieberry Sour are awesome.

    I couldnt believe how hot it was at the Sour Festival.

    Default Sierra Nevada Glissade

    Just spotted this yesterday and grabbed a 6 pack. It's a golden bock. I'm a huge fan of SN ales but I've never really been grabbed by their lagers or wheat beers so my expectations were pretty low. Fortunately, this one is pretty good. It's not going to be a huge "go to" beer for me but it is a quality, middle of the road bock - along the lines of Shiner Bock with a bit more body. And that's not really a bad thing. I can see this being a summer beer for me.

    Anyway, nice golden color. About a finger and half of head. Pleasant grainy/malty/yeasty aroma with some hops right up front. Medium body, not too light and not heavy. Good flavor, good balance from the hops with a slight astringency (which might put some off). But I'm ok with it. Good pilsner malt flavor - biscuity. Overall it's the type of beer I could easily sink a 12 pack on a long "let's get a bunch of yard work done" spring or summer day.
